Her name has been changed but her story is true.
My name is Bethany.
This is my story of getting the help I needed.
It was a little over two years ago when I moved to Kansas. In my mind, I had lost all hope and faith. I had no family here, and I knew no one but my boyfriend’s boss and his wife. I was here for less than a year when I found out I was pregnant.
I called Advice & Aid right away and they had me come in for a pregnancy test. Later, they also performed my first ultrasound where I found out I was having twins! The shock was so great I couldn’t think straight. They immediately got me involved in various programs they offer (similar to classes) where I began to receive information that would prove to be incredibly valuable to me. Between the topics covered and the amazing speakers they have, I was able to learn much and put to use what I was learning right away.
Advice & Aid has been so good to my twins and me. In addition to all the help they gave me, they also connected me with a local church that would be able to help me in other ways as well. Many of the people I met at Advice & Aid I now consider my friends.
At a time when I felt God had forgotten me, they helped me see that He was holding my hand and was walking beside me the entire time. He is still there, holding my hand and guiding me as I work to make a better life for myself and my twins.
I am so very thankful for all that Advice & Aid has done for me.
