Find out the end of Anna's story!
She was not showing, so she was desperately hoping the test would be negative. She and her five year old just left a bad situation with her ex-boyfriend, and they were currently couch surfing with family and friends. A baby was just not in her plans. The ultrasound exam confirmed that she was pregnant, very pregnant… the baby was over TWENTY weeks old! Anna saw the little life inside her, kicking away during the ultrasound exam! However this was NOT what she wanted to see… so we prayed. We prayed for Anna, and her very active unborn precious baby that they would both be spared from abortion.
About a week later after our appointment with Anna, we received a phone call from her. She wanted to come in and see us! A few hours later she showed up, and brought her five year old with her… She was beaming as she shared with us she decided she was DEFINITELY going to carry! She came to pick out maternity clothes… WOW God! We could hardly contain our joy and excitement! Isn’t God faithful?! She has been regularly meeting with staff at the Center and has also been attending parenting classes!
We often have NO IDEA what circumstances and fears that grip the women that walk in our doors. But we KNOW that letting women like Anna SEE their precious baby’s little kicking feet and beating heart, is POWERFUL. We know that praying over her and equipping her with TRUTH, and empowering her with knowledge has the potential to CHANGE the trajectory of one LIFE, and to SAVE another.
This year, because of your support, we are on track to serve over 400 women in our medical clinic. As you know, in May of this year we deployed our Mobile Medical Unit to the communities of Sweet Home, Brownsville, Halsey, Scio and Jefferson! God is already sending us patients like Anna through this amazing tool! We believe EACH day that God has a plan to use us to serve the Willamette Valley. With all these locations we are projecting to grow by 40% in 2018! We know that our labor and our giving of time and treasure is having an eternal impact in the lives of those He allows us to serve.
This Christmas season, we celebrate God’s JOY, PEACE and HOPE. Thank you for being part of the team that is bringing HOPE to men, women and children through our medical clinic, parenting programs, post-abortion healing, housing and abstinence programs in the schools. As you plan your end of the year giving, will you join us in our work to help mothers and fathers choose life for their unborn children?
Every GIFT counts. EVERY LIFE COUNTS. Everything we do is for the one woman and one child that comes through our doors. Everything we do is for the One who came to earth as a precious Baby… who gave His Life so that we might truly live.

“I was always the golden child…”
“I was an A student. I worked extremely hard at everything I did. My family and I always thought I would go to college, find a nice man, settle down, and then have babies. As soon as I thought I might be pregnant, I immediately thought about my family and their reaction. I was so scared.. what would they think?” – Hailey
Hailey and Jeremy walked into the PAC clinic that day because of a small sign on Second Street that said “free pregnancy tests” and because they googled local pregnancy centers and found our website, pregnancyalternatives.org.
They were scared. Nervous. Anxious. Emotional… and unsure what to do.
Although they were in a committed relationship, the idea of pregnancy was definitely not planned. They were young! And it just was not happening in the order they had thought. It wasn’t part of the plan! Plus, there was the medical condition Hailey has been suffering from her whole life.
Pregnancy was NOT something they thought her body could handle.
Because of the medication she was on, and the condition she had, it was questionable whether she would carry the baby. Hailey shared that “Abortion was my number one choice if I couldn’t carry, and in addition my boyfriend was very nervous and scared… Scared of his entire life changing, and scared of my family and the news of a pregnancy all happening in the wrong order.. especially since they hadn’t even met him yet!”
“Then we saw our baby on the ultrasound screen, and we both cried.”
“PAC is the perfect place to go if you think you might be pregnant… we are so grateful that there is a place to come for help. The staff here didn’t judge us; they just supported us and helped us put our game face on and be like okay, what do we need to do now.”
“Because of PAC, our story has a great ending!” – Hailey & Jeremy
Hailey and Jeremy are expecting a healthy baby in March! They are breaking the news to her family over the holidays, and she is already feeling the baby move. Her medical condition is miraculously under control, and both baby and mother are doing great. Hailey and Jeremy are taking parenting classes to be the BEST parents they can be.
Thank you for standing with us to provide a place like PAC. With your help we can not only provide these services in Lebanon, but with the Medical Mobile Unit, we can reach women all over Linn County! Please consider how YOU can help us reach precious couples like Jeremy, Hailey and their baby.
Pregnancy Alternatives Center
mobile medical unit
We will be able to provide pregnancy testing, ultrasound exams, limited STD testing, patient advocacy, and emotional support to women in these geographic locations where these services have not been available.
The unit will deploy with a team of people that are dedicated to serving women with emotional support and medical services to empower them to make healthy decisions for themselves and their babies.
If you would like to help us financially to deploy this unit OR if you would like to volunteer to work with the mobile unit, we would love to have you be a part of our amazing team.
Celebrate with us as we expand our borders and serve women in Linn County!
