Letter #1 To A Pregnant Teen

Hey,

This may sound kind of creepy and stalker-like but I just wanted you to know that I can’t stop thinking about you. I know we haven’t met yet and that probably freaks you out but I just wanted you to know that there are people out there that care for you. There are people out there who don’t want you to feel alone or scared now that you are pregnant.

I guess I just wanted to assure you I’m working as fast as I can to get you a safe place to stay while you are pregnant. I’m feverishly trying to raise money to be able to get you a place to stay, the right people to help you , and the things you will need to be the best mommy you can be right now. I wake up in the middle of night and God and I talk about you. Not like in a bad way. I just ask Him to keep His hand on you and your baby until I can help you.

You want to know the coolest thing though? It’s not difficult  to find people who care about you. I don’t have to go searching hard to find people to want to help you get off to a good start in this next stage of your life. I don’t want you to think it’s all jacked up and they feel sorry for you or they pity you. It’s not like that at all. There are people all over this city who deeply care about you and your baby. They aren’t judging you. You don’t have to prove anything to them. They already love you and your baby.

So today, if you are waking up and you are already dreading today I wanted you to know you are surrounded by love. If you are waking up today and feel stressed out by decisions, and people, and school, and family I just wanted you to know you are covered in prayer. And that there is help on the way.

Hang in there sweetie,
