"At first I wasn't too sure about Haven Home For Girls. I was nervous, stressed out, and ashamed I put myself in such a position to have to be away from my family and friends. Never would I of thought that I would bawl my eyes out the day I left, actually miss this place and try to visit the staff, girls, and babies as much as possible. On some occasions I actually wish I was back there, because adulthood isn't what it makes out to be at all. I learned so much about motherhood, had so many open ears that were willing to listen, shoulders to cry on, patience from the staff when I was pregnant. I met a lot of great people, and there was so much support in the room when I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. Without this house I would not be where I am today; a single mom up on my own two feet, alive and sober for almost a year with my own place and money saved in the bank! My precious daughter has everything she needs because of this maternity house. I couldn't thank everyone there enough for the amazing experience, countless laughs, and for creating this wonderful chapter in this life that I will never forget ."
