Cradle My Heart Today | Phoebe’s story 7-14-17
When Phoebe was leaving an abusive marriage, she sought out comfort with another man. Listen now:
She knew it was wrong, but she had no idea the consequences would include pregnancy.
Phoebe was overwhelmed emotionally, but knew she could not abort.
With the help of a local pregnancy center, Phoebe connected with a counselor who helped her to think things through and make an adoption plan. Phoebe shares her story to help others.
