Help Young Mothers When They Need You

When Kaiya Acton became pregnant at only fourteen, she never considered abortion.  Sadly these days, young girls who choose life for their babies find little support from friends and society.  Kaiya was no exception.  She faced bullying and ridicule from her classmates.  Even grown men heaped verbal abuse on her when she was in public.  Kaiya held fast, and what got her through the tough times was remembering her baby was a blessing, not a curse.  Obviously, we need to share the message of abstinence until marriage with our youth.  But if sexual sin does occur and a pregnancy results; we have a Christian obligation to help to the best of our abilities.  First, we can pray for both mother and child, and we can step forward with much-needed love and material support.
