The clients that visit Hope are sometimes overwhelmed with fear. They are afraid of sharing the news with loved ones. They are afraid of what people might think. They are afraid of what the future holds. They are afraid of disappointing others. They are afraid that there is no one around to help. They are afraid of what pregnancy might be like. The list goes on and on and I am sure you can fill in the blank very easily with your own sources of fear.
Fear is a normal response to an unplanned pregnancy. When we experience a difficult situation and are limited in who we can go to for help, we often bottle up all of our emotions. We are walking around like a shaken up soda bottle that needs to release the pressure inside but just can’t. This is why Hope exists. You do not have to go through these hard things alone. We are here to gently remove the cap on that shaken up soda bottle so you can release the pressure and begin to sort through your feelings and fears in a safe, confidential atmosphere.
A wise man once said, “Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” You may be in a place where that idea seems almost ridiculous, but with our experience, it is true. There may not be immediate relief from fear or sadness, but with time and perseverence, you can experience hope and joy.
We would love to walk that road with you and share the reasons for our hope. You are More than your fears. Call us for an appointment at (435) 652-8343.
