Moving on Up

Last week I experienced a very moving event, the graduation of two young women from the Teen Mother Choices program.

They have each come a long long way and have been truly transformed into the wonderful people and moms that they are today.

For all the many times I've seen the benefits of this program, I certainly felt the power of it effects at this ceremony.

I am so happy for these women who have been through a lot and have come so far.  I just pray for them now - a life of continued learning, loving and wonderfulness.  The woman on the right is the one getting married this July.  I met up with her at the fabric store today to pick out and purchase the fabrics for the projects I will be helping her out with for her big day.  It is such an honor to be a part of her life in this way.  I love spending time with her and getting to know her better.  I can't wait to get started on her projects!

If you are interested in the Teen Mother Choices program for your community you can get started by going here.  I am so blessed to be a part of this program in our area!

What an amazing journey these women have taken - and you're a part of the reason they've come as far as they have. That's something that should put a smile on your face!
