A Letter From a Mary's Shelter Gulf Coast Resident

I found out I was pregnant three days after I became homeless. I'd left an abusive relationship with nothing but my daughter, my car, and the clothes we could fit into the trunk. My plan was to find a homeless shelter near my mother in Florida, get a job, and take back control of my life. But God had other plans, and as I sat in the pregnancy clinic watching my baby's heartbeat flicker on the screen, I was certain that I would never be able to get through this alone. I was leaving the pregnancy clinic that day when the counselor handed me the phone number to Mary's Shelter in Alabama. I wasn't optimistic at all. I'd already called a dozen other shelters and been told the same thing over and over: they were at capacity, but they would add me to their waiting list. But Mary's Shelter was different. They told me, "We have a room for you and your daughter. When can you get here?"

I've been at Mary's Shelter home for four months now. I have a job and a strong support system. Since the day I got here, I've never once felt like this was anything other than a home. I've made friends that feel like family. I'm no longer scared to have this child. I know now that I don't have to fight this fight alone.


For the Love of Life!
