at 16 years old i found myself pregnant and in the worse situation i could have ever been in .. my father and mother took me to harbor house and allowed me to meet the best people that could have ever stepped foot into my life ..
from the moment that i stepped foot into the home i was welcomed with love and a new weight on my shoulders .. witch later became that i needed to realize who my lord and savior was ...
they led me to God.. They showed me my options between adoption and raising my son.. and had me write out pros and cons and pray hard about my choice.
never one time did they make me feel like i had to place my son...
they always made sure that i knew i had another option..
however in my situation i wasn't able to raise a child nor would i attempt to raise a child due to the face i didn't know how to be a mom and i didn't want my child to struggle while i had to figure out how to get my life together within the few months that i had left before he would arrive..
they helped me pick the perfect family for my little peanut and i was able to do an open adoption so now i can see talk to and love my son still...
i couldn't have asked for a better family and for that alone i am forever grateful
after my adoption when i had no where else to go because nobody wanted me .. they allowed me to stay there and thought me so many different life skills and showed me so many different things..
these people loved me unconditionally and whole hearted along with every other teen that came in there they always made us feel as though we were apart of the family.. because we were and still are .. they would do anything for me 7 years later and anything for any of the teens previous to me

This place claims to be a Christian based organization, yet they bully, threaten, and coerce underage teens to agree to adoption. They use means of manipulation, isolation, and biblical damnation to bully girls into feeling as if they have no other choice than to agree to adoption or suffer the consequences Harbor house threatens will happen if they do not comply with adoption. If a girl tries to back out and keep her baby once he/she is born Harbor house will once again threaten saying cps will come take their baby because they are underage and unable to care for an infant. They also fraud Medicaid by not reporting to job and family services that a girl has left the program and is no longer residing there, they will not report the change to Medicaid for months after the girl has already departed the program. What this place does is not only morally and ethically wrong it is illegal. The emotional turmoil these teens endure is unthinkable and a pain NO mother should have to go through.
