A Beacon of Hope Women's Center
February 22, 2011

Our Beacon of Hope journey began when our unmarried College Freshman tearfully called from across the country to share the life-changing news that she was pregnant with her first child. Twenty-tender-years-old and PREGNANT. First time to live away from home and PREGNANT. Our unmarried daughter was PREGNANT and her life path was permanently altered… We were all shocked and afraid.

There was no way getting away from that haunting word and its implications, she was pregnant and at 42 and 43, we were about to become Grandparents. What does one do and other than us, where would our daughter turn for help? A Beacon of Hope.

How thankful we were that she found solace, acceptance and genuine caring through these gifted people with a program to match. She was terrified but the angels at A Beacon of Hope were fearless! Throughout the next year our daughter went through a comprehensive life-saving experience resulting in a confident young mother and the joy of a Granddaughter.

A Beacon of Hope delivered upon their promise to stand beside our daughter. Throughout those 12 months she bonded with the women of Beacon, was mentored, spiritually invigorated and reminded of the love of GOD. She learned about herself, children, life-skills from finances to breast-feeding. A Beacon of Hope prepared her for the everyday experiences of motherhood and in her case, single parenting.

The bottom line is these people sincerely care. They know you’re scared and they know what to do. Eleven years of precious memories later, and yes, bumps in the road later, we know the Beacon of Hope experience was the best step our daughter took in a time of great confusion. We wouldn’t trade the hope or caring she received for anything! THANK YOU BEACON OF HOPE!

The Great!
