KNOWING IS THE FIRST STEP IN SOLVING THE PREGNANCY AND PARENTING PUZZLE
SERVING NOBLE COUNTY, INDIANA
At one time or another, we all seem to fall short of our needs in life. Be it emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual, we all need a little help at some point. I often find myself pondering what others did “back in the day,” so to speak, for I remain unsure what I would do without places like Life and Family Services.
Time after time, the wonderful women at Life and Family Services have provided me with each and every one of these needs. Teaching me to be a better mother, supporting me when I need it, or being able to get clothes and diapers for my young kids . . . the generosity and kindness so freely given is not lost on me.
Most importantly, I’ve found at Life and Family Services someone I can confide in. Having been raised in a house that lacked love and care, trust has never come easily for me. Who can I trust, when my life experiences have taught me that nobody can be trusted? Thankfully, God has provided me with the people (like Deanna) at LFS. I know that I can speak to her about anything without fear of judgement or harshness. She’s accepting and loving, encouraging and can even be gently enforcing if and when I need it. I’m very thankful that she’s been there for me throughout these last few months as I transitioned from a single mom of one boy to two boys. It’s a heavy burden. Having support like Deanna’s has changed my life. Reassuring me that I can do this. More than anything, that’s what I need.
I am forever touched and amazed by the selflessness spread into this service.
I pray whoever reads this would be touched by these words and know that lives are being changed at LFS. My mother didn’t teach me what being a mother was all about -- in fact she taught me how NOT to be a good and loving mother. Life and Family Services has been there for me, to make up for what I was once ignorant of. I am forever touched.
My deepest gratitude to all of you. My boys and I, our lives, improve everyday with your help.
