Review for Saint Child, Beaverton, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love being at Saint Child and seeing how young women's lives are being changed. One young woman came to us because she was "couch surfing" because her family life was very disfunctional. She was looking for change. Because of the support of Saint Child staff she grew as a person from one who was self centered and cared only about her own happiness to a person who was able to see that the best for her unborn baby girl would be to bless a family who could not have children. She choose a open adoption and was happy to be able to visit her baby and watch her grow in a loving family. Saint Child supported her through the pain of blessing a family through adoption with continued support and counseling. She was able to transition to an apartment and continue on in her personal educational goals.
Another young woman was pregnant and her husband of 3months had left her. She was able to stay at Saint Child and work on her relationship with her husband. They were able to reunite and have a beautiful baby boy.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I love to volunteer and spread the word about Saint Child and what they can do for a young woman who is caught in a cycle of abuse and poverty.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Build more homes like it so more young women could have a place to go for support before and after the birth of their child.
