“After that visit, I felt so much hope and faith. At that moment, I knew that God was working in my life and these women were meant to be in it.”
I wanted to give a little background story on how Alpha has helped me and my family. It all started back in 2015 when my son was born. God gifted me with him, he is my bonus child. My husband became a single father with a newborn straight out of the hospital. He had nowhere to look for help until he became part of the Alpha family. They had helped him with whatever it was he needed for him and our son. About two months after we met each other, he asked me to go to an appointment with him at Alpha. I was a little nervous because I suffer with social anxiety and PTSD. When I walked through the door there was a lady that greeted us; her name was Christa. Christa is one of the most kindhearted, selfless women I have ever met. She welcomed me with open arms and I felt like I had known her for years. Sometimes bonus-mother duty can be hard but Christa would always make sure she told me how proud she was of me and thank me for taking on the responsibility of being a bonus mother and validated how hard it was for me. She is truly a gift from God himself. I felt safe when I was there, which was big for me at that time. I have gone to Alpha since 2015 and couldn’t imagine my life without the women that work there. I could always go in and talk and they would pray with me at the end, and this always makes me feel so hopeful.
My last little story is that I walked in one day and I was having a very hard time in my life. When I went into the room Denise came and sat with me and I honestly just let it all go and cried for almost an hour. She made sure I knew it was okay and that she was there for me. She also said, “don’t worry about the video, let’s just sit and pray.” After that visit, I felt so much hope and faith. At that moment, I knew that God was working in my life and these women were meant to be in it. They also helped me so much with things that I needed for my children. We now have another child that also gets to visit. Such great information is given out and resources that can fit any situation. I look forward to my visit every other week.
This place is a God-send and they help so many women in so many different situations. I am now at a point in my life where I am just about done with my master’s degree in psychology. I one day want to help individuals that have been in dark places have that same glimpse of hope. I will always let women in need know about the Alpha Care Center and how the people there can help and they are more than willing, with open arms.
