“A huge blessing.”
That’s how Onyae describes life with her adorable daughter Kamorie.
“Every day she surprises me with something new.”
But when she first discovered she was pregnant, it wasn’t necessarily a surprise Onyae thought she wanted. The road ahead was anything but certain.
Motherhood is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world, but it’s also one of the most challenging. From the moment a woman first discovers she’s pregnant, her life changes forever, for those first 9 months and beyond.
It’s an even tougher mountain to climb for women confronted with an unplanned pregnancy.
That’s why Mosaic Health provides inspiring moms like Onyae with a place to turn, so they know they’re not alone. We offer the care and support new moms need to make healthy pregnancy decisions and prepare for all of the joys and responsibilities that lie ahead.
Like many women, Onyae strongly considered getting an abortion when she found herself unexpectedly pregnant. “I felt like I couldn’t take care of her,” she explains. “Felt like I couldn’t give her the life she needs.”
Mosaic provided free, confidential pregnancy information to help Onyae sort through her options. Our volunteers help women navigate the steps they’ll need to take before making a pregnancy decision:
- Get an ultrasound to determine whether the pregnancy is viable.
- Test for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), which may increase the risk of complications if an abortion procedure is performed.
- Review all of the possible risks of abortion.
For Onyae, seeing little Kamorie for the first time on an ultrasound was an “amazing experience” that played a pivotal role in her decision. It helped her to realize there was “a human living inside me,” a moment she describes as “beautiful.”
From school to work to the home they now share together, Onyae believes Kamorie is a gift from God and says “she has pushed me to be the person I am today.”
At Mosaic, we wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to Onyae and all of the other amazing moms who have turned to us for help in their time of need. We consider it an honor and a blessing to serve all of our clients.
