It happened so in my life that my husband left the family unexpectedly. It turned out that he did not want me or our children. I was left alone with two kids and I was pregnant with the third one. I do not know what would I have done without a job, without material support.
The acquaintances told me about the Crisis Pregnancy Centre. I did not hope that I could get any help, yet I contacted them. In the Crisis centre I met the understanding of my situation and kind attitude. They helped me with clothes for a baby, they gave me pram, bedclothes, blankets. Later, when my son had already grown a little, I also received bigger clothes, warm outfits.
I give thanks from all my heart to Crisis Pregnancy Centre sponsors and all
supporters, to those good people who helped and are still helping my family and
me in such a difficult situation. The most sincere thanks to the centre's
employees for their warmth of heart and responsiveness. I am very glad that the
employees not only help materially but are really interested in how the baby is
growing, is the baby healthy and if everything is alright.
In deep respect and gratitude, Liene
I am Inese, I am 18 years old. When my daughter was 2 months old, she died. I became very emotional, depressive, started to drink alcohol, my relatives wanted to institutionalize me in a mental hospital to treat me due to my behaviour.
By seeing little children, I wanted to take them with me to raise them. I cried a lot, I lost the sense of reality. The father of the child also started to drink, we estranged from each other.
"The Journey" (Ceļojums) helped me accept the existing situation, reconcile myself with the loss. I did not feel guilty any more about what had happened. I found strength again in myself to create new relationship, I understood that God had accepted my child and that I would be able to have children and relationship with men.
Thanks to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre for their support!
My name is Evelīna. I am 37. I have had 2 abortions in my life. I suffered from nightmares and depression. I have never told anybody about my experience with abortions and the sense of regret.
I am surprised about the results of "The Journey" (Ceļojums) - I don't have any thoughts about suicide any more, I have no nightmares, no sense of guilt.
The biggest benefit that I gained at "The Journey" (Ceļojums) was the feeling that God has forgiven me.
I wish strength and endurance to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre and thank you!
I am a student, I am 22. My girlfriend got pregnant. I called to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre in order to get to know where is it cheaper to carry out abortions, but, speaking with the consultant, I found out about the consequences of abortion. I with my girlfriend decided to come together to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre to consultation.
I want to say thanks to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre, because now we are happy together with our baby.
I am 45 years old. Two years ago I got pregnant. My children, husband, doctors - nobody supported my wish to give birth. I was threatened that a baby could be born ill.
I did an abortion due to common society pressure and I regret about this very much. I was desperate, I even did not want to live this "very well arranged" life. I thought about my unborn child.
In my opinion the society thinks that after the age of 40 a woman cannot give birth, because it is not acceptable. And I did not stand against this pressure of society.
The consultant at the Crisis Pregnancy Centre helped me speak out my pain, find forgiveness and get strength for further life.
I am Kristīne, I'm 33. Three years ago a miscarriage happened to me at the 12th week of pregnancy. I suffered it very much, but still I accepted that it was God's will. Anyway, I felt very badly despite the fact that I had a good family and job.
I went to psychotherapy specialist but she started to talk about my childhood, parents, started to solve everything in "Freudian style". My objections about the feelings for my lost child she did not take into account. Psychotherapy did not help me, but two years later I found out about the Crisis Pregnancy Centre and received help - "The Journey" (Ceļojums). After "The Journey" (Ceļojums) everything went back into places - I can assert that his programme is really saving in case of a child loss. Thanks to Crisis Pregnancy Centre!
A girl attended the Crisis Pregnancy Centre, she had carried out abortion 7 days ago. It was carried out in haste and flood of emotions. The girl felt very emotional about it - the loss of a baby and also about the fact that after this event she had split up with the father of the child.
The girl felt guilty, dirty, frightened. She thought - where is my child now?
"The Journey" (Ceļojums) helped find peace and forgiveness. The benefit was the possibility to speak about her pain, because the girl admitted that she was lonely, as everybody surrounding her were busy with their works and nobody had time for her.
Thanks to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre for help!
