We will save 1,000 unborn lives from death by 2021

 Dear Friends,Thank you for your support of our Spring Film and Fashion Luncheon & Fashion Show last week! If you were not able to attend, we missed you! At the event, we were excited to announce our expansion plans to save more babies in the Coachella Valley by converting our Pregnancy Resource Center to Medical. The new Center will offer ultrasound for crisis pregnancy moms so that they are able to hear their unborn child’s heartbeat -- a sound that will never be forgotten. Your continued support makes it possible for Birth Choice fulfil this Mission and reach our goal.
GOAL: We will save 1,000 unborn lives from death by 10/31/21 through our caring and compassionate support & education.)
One of the most often asked questions is, “What do you and your Center actually do for mothers and babies?”
Here’s a story that illustrates precisely what we do.
We first met Sarah when she was 13 years old and pregnant. For 5 dreadful years, Sarah’s life was under complete control of a network of foster homes. When she was just 7, her family gave her over to the foster care system knowing they couldn’t care for their child and it started a cycle that Sarah continued.
As unbelievable as this sounds, this kind of thing still happens today due to poverty and despair in our communities that children are often seen as burdens to be disposed of at any time.
Believe It or Not, Most Lives That are Saved Start With Loving, Caring and Compassionate Counseling!And, we could not do this without your support! You are truly the Hero for the moms and babies that enter our Center each day. When a pregnant woman, like Sarah, doesn’t know what to do, Birth Choice of the Desert is here for her. We care about mothers and children and we exist to share all of the options available so the mother can make informed decisions for herself and her child. Our extensive library and resources allow us to help pregnant women find solutions while we provide them a loving, caring environment as they prepare for the birth of their baby.
The 3 Most Common Questions People Ask About When it Comes to Why Providing Pregnancy Support and Education for Mothers and Babies is so Important are: 

  1. If the need is so obvious, why aren’t the authorities doing anything to support these mothers?
  2. How does educating mothers and families help build stronger families?
  3. What do you do to help provide caring support and education for these mothers and babies?

If the need is so obvious, why aren’t the authorities doing anything to support these mothers?
There’s no easy answer to this. Although Sarah became a product of the foster care system, we see that average women in our Center experience something similar. Our society has become so preoccupied with what comes easy that the thought of providing care for someone in need feels more like a burden than a responsibility.
How does educating mothers and families help build stronger families?
There is no easy answer to this either. We’ve seen mothers as young as 12 years old (!) come to our facility, and we’ll often work with groups of mothers who are as old as 16. Our team works closely with each mother, building a relationship and creating a bond so that they can see there is a positive future for them and their unborn child -- even when they cannot imagine a life filled with love and support.
But with God’s grace, and help from some of the best non-profit resources for mothers and babies, we’ve seen miraculous results. If you paid a visit to some of these centers, you would never imagine the road these women have been on.
What do you do to help provide caring support and education for these mothers and babies?
Building stronger family foundations is a slow process because every mother we encounter has a unique situation. Perhaps first and most importantly, we become acquainted with the mother’s situation and needs in that moment. This is done through our “Earn While You Learn” Curriculum, which has a proven track record for building stronger families.
The Curriculum focuses on the fundamental principal of loving an individual where they are and guiding them to where they want to be. We want to help the mother restore her faith in her own “hope” for a loving future and a strong family foundation.
Beyond that, we have a comprehensive and professional approach to helping mothers open up about their situations. We are blessed with an amazing team of staff members, volunteers and partners like Dr. Coy who offer free limited ultrasounds at a moment’s notice.
Here’s What I Do To Help Save Babies Lives.
My role in the ministry is to ensure the operational side of the organization is running efficiently from a financial and logistical standpoint. That often means that I:· Raise awareness in the Community· Build partnerships with referral agencies · Ensure we meet the needs of the community· Lead trainings and provide continued education· Champion fundraising and giving campaigns for the ministry
While I may not be the first to meet the mothers and babies we help in our Center, my leadership role allows for our team members to shine in their talents and abilities. Together, we make a great team and we’re changing lives!
Meet Sarah, Who Is Now Happily Married and a Mother of 5.Read Sarah’s Happily Ever After Story below…
I’ll never forget the day I went back to the “Safe House”, where we referred Sarah to, and got to see her again. I sobbed with joy for her! She had her newborn son in her arms and I stood in awe of how far she had come. She said to me,
“Lupe, this is my new baby! He is so wonderful and I’m so glad you can finally meet him!”
There were no other words needed. SHE had done it! She faced the darkness, faced the pain, and powered through to save her baby.

“When my friends and I all discovered we were pregnant; we didn’t know where to turn. We didn’t know how to tell our parents. We were only 16 and did not know how we would be able to continue with our education and raise a child. Birth Choice helped us and supported us so that we could build a loving and supporting family for our babies while we continued with our education. Birth Choice is a wonderful place for pregnant mothers to come to for help and support during their pregnancy. It is also supportive of fathers in their efforts to help the mom and baby.”
“Birth Choice of the Desert is such a wonderful place. I had a great experience when I found out I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. I was homeless at the time and they helped me find shelter and provided a means for transportation. It felt so good knowing that there were people who cared about me. They always called to check up on me and my baby.  I felt so much love from all the staff members. I recommend it, especially if you are first time mom.”
