After Hazel found out about her pregnancy, she realized she had to finally leave her boyfriend. He had been abusive toward her and she didn’t want to subject her child to the same treatment. When she told him that night he beat her almost to death and is now behind bars.
Then, once her doctor’s found out about her situation they began to encourage her to abort, telling her awful things about the future she could expect as a single mother. She didn’t go back after that, but their words got to her. What if all they had said came true?
Hazel fell into a depression, stopped her prenatal care, and stopped caring for herself. Unable to bring herself to apply to work, eventually, she became homeless. Now, she has stopped caring about being homeless.
The only way out, she feels, is to take her ex’s family up on their offer to fly her out-of-state to get an abortion, despite the hope she once had for being a mother.
Luckily, Hazel happens to live near someone in our Let Them Live community. We are connecting them so that Hazel will have direct, in-person support from someone who truly values her and her baby’s well-being.
This kind of care is precisely what Hazel has been missing.
Initially, being a single mother didn’t bother Hazel, but the total negativity about her baby deeply affected her. The lack of housing, transportation, and resources has seemingly confirmed her doctors’ predictions about single motherhood.
You can stand in the gap, and show that single motherhood doesn’t mean being alone. By making a donation of any amount, even if it’s just $5 we can alleviate her financial concerns and be there to help Hazel choose life.
