“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.
