Review for The Source For Women Of Houston, Inc., Houston, TX, USA
I have had a truly amazing experience with The Source for Women. I never knew that this type of resource was available to women. I found out that I was pregnant in December 2009. I was devastates because I had not planned on having anymore kids, now that I am 37 years old. I already have a son (14), and a daughter (11) that resides with my ex-husband in Dallas Texas. I thought my baby days were over. I live with my boyfriend of 2 years who is the unborn baby’s father. He is 10 years older than me (47). I researched places regarding pregnancy counseling and assistance once I found out I was pregnant, because I was trying to make a decision on whether or not I wanted to keep the child. I am a recovering alcoholic, so I did not know what effects my past could have on my child. Or if I would be able to maintain my sobriety throughout the term of my pregnancy. The counselors and staff that assisted me were so very kind and thoughtful. They offered insight and advice in a spiritual manner in which was exactly what I needed to hear. They reinforced the ideal that I was not the first person to face this predicament and that my faith was enough to get me through this pregnancy successfully.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I especially enjoyed the parenting classes, and Bible study. My feelings towards this pregnancy slowly became more positive and filled with excitement instead of paralyzing fear and depression.
