Christina’s Story

christina“When my home pregnancy test showed positive, I couldn’t believe it. I kept thinking: Is this for real? I stayed up all night thinking about what to do—I felt like I was in a free fall, with no one to catch me.”

“The next morning I googled ‘professional pregnancy test’ and Caris came up. I called right away and decided to go to Caris immediately. I was so surprised when I walked in because it wasn’t at all like a doctor’s office or a hospital. I felt welcomed at Caris, and the comforting atmosphere immediately helped calm my nerves.”

“I met with a counselor and took another pregnancy test. My counselor helped and just let me talk, and sort everything out.”

Brianna’s Story

brianna“When I found out I was pregnant my world turned upside down. Each day, I woke up trying to hide my sickness, worrying about what I was going to do about my pregnancy. The baby’s father was no longer in the picture and my relationship with my mom wasn’t good. I was in the most desperate place I had ever been in.”

“When I found Caris, I knew I was pregnant, so I didn’t need a pregnancy test. What I needed was someone to listen and to help make sense of the huge decision I was being pressured to make. I walked into Caris feeling confused and scared, but I walked out with peace in my heart. I didn’t know how, but I knew I would survive this.”

“I don’t know where I’d be today if it weren’t for Caris.”
