Christmas Blessings: Antwan and Jessica's Story
It’s been an incredible year at Life Forward.
I’d like to share with you about Antwan, Jessica and A. J. who are just one of the many families in whose lives we’ve seen God at work. They were unsure about Life Forward before their first visit. Would they be judged because of their unplanned pregnancy? What they experienced surprised them and transformed them into positive advocates for the ministry.
“They talked to me, not down to me,” says Jessica. “They explained everything to me before, during and after the ultrasound. We were excited to see our son A. J. for the first time on the screen but they didn’t assume that we would be happy. They asked how we felt about being pregnant. I could tell that they really cared about us.”
In preparation for the birth of A. J., Antwan and Jessica sought to grow as parents, as a couple and in their relationships with God. “We learned a lot in the parenting sessions. We really appreciated everyone’s prayers for us during the classes,” says Antwan. Their hearts continue to be filled with gratitude for the support and encouragement they’ve received.
Will you join us this Christmas season in empowering more families like Antwan, Jessica and A. J. with life and the Gospel? Please consider a special gift to Life Forward before December 31. Your gift helps women and their families make life-affirming decisions through God’s love. Thank you!
Yours in Life,
Steve Stevenson, Life Forward Executive Director
