“Recently I lost my baby to foster care. But, I’m meeting regularly with my counselor and other agencies. The Crossing has helped me gain confidence in myself, knowing I’m valuable as a person and able to become the wonderful mother that I want to be. The Crossing is the quiet place I can go when things are overwhelming, to have someone listen and help me get things on track, whether in my relationships or working on parenting and planning for a better future.”
“I was worried I was pregnant. I didn’t know how to take care of a baby. In conversations with my counselor, I realized I was coerced by my adult boyfriend. My parents were unaware of this whole situation. I decided to come to The Crossing. With my counselor, I talked about sexual purity, freedom and ownership of my body. It turned out I wasn’t pregnant. My counselor helped me talk to my parents and alert authorities about my situation. I’m now on a path to recovery and beginning a new life.”
