Christa March shares how she is helping teen moms who choose to be a parent to their children.
Teen Mother Choices International
Christa is the founder of Teen Mother Choices International (TMCI), an organization that is helping teen moms who choose to keep their babies. They have already spent decades helping thousands of moms since they launched in 1989. They are also training churches to also provide help for teen moms.
“No matter what your situation is, we believe that the church is the answer, and we could help you,” she recently told CBN’s Faithwire. “Now is the time for us to say we believe that baby’s life is precious. We also believe that a mom’s life is precious. So, let’s help her. Let’s help her find out who it is that God’s created her to be.”
Her heart to help these women came from her own journey. As a child, she grew up in a Christian home and got to know Jesus. She dreamt of becoming a missionary as she grew deeper in her faith. However, things didn’t go as planned.
“I ended up getting pregnant, and … I aborted my child, which really was the catalyst to seriously pushing me downhill,” she said. “But then God miraculously brought me back to Himself and brought my boyfriend to Himself, and we ended up getting married, and we have two more children.”
In TCMI, their focus is on helping not just the child, but also the mother. They aim to help them finish high school and have stable jobs.
“Our focus is on afterward, everything from helping her with her finances, helping her get a job, helping her finish high school — anything that can help her become a more responsible adult and therefore a better parent,” she said.
