The Gift You’re Expecting

An unexpected pregnancy may not seem like a gift. But there may just be hope and joy to come.Have you ever gotten a Christmas gift you weren’t expecting?

Maybe even one you didn’t want?

An unexpected pregnancy can feel like that.

It threatens to completely change your world. And this change was not what you were hoping for.

But what if this pregnancy is actually a good gift?

What if Your Future Were Unexpectedly Bright?

Unexpected pregnancy sends your life in an unplanned direction. But what if that direction takes you places that make you a better person?

Parenthood may bring you the gift of learning to love unconditionally, of becoming devoted to the well-being of another human being. Protecting and providing for your little one may bring out the lion in you. You may find you have more courage than you ever thought possible.

Today, you can’t see how that could be possible. But only because you can’t see tomorrow.

Shakespeare said, "We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

What if This Gift Brings You Joy?

If you’re not really happy about being pregnant, it can really hurt when people make rude or negative remarks about your pregnancy. They can make it sound like there’s only sorrow or disappointment ahead for you.

But what if there’s joy?

The best way to find out is to find someone who will listen while you honestly express all your feelings and concerns—without passing judgment on you. At a faith-based pregnancy resource center like Choices Pregnancy Center, you’ll find people who care about you right where you’re at. We want to know what you want, and how we can help.

And being faith-based means we have a profound belief that there is hope for you in this pregnancy. We want to help you work through to finding peace—and joy.

Patricia Heaton said, “A woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy also deserves to experience unplanned joy.”

What if Letting Go Lets You Soar?

We all tend to hold onto what’s familiar or planned. We want our original expectations met. But sometimes holding on holds us back. Your unplanned pregnancy may be just the nudge you need to let go of what’s okay today to gain what’s terrific tomorrow.

Explore all your options for your pregnancy with this in mind. Dare to embrace the unexpected. Find out what lies beyond!

Joseph Campbell said, "We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”


Bring your concerns about your unplanned pregnancy to the caring staff at Choices Pregnancy Center.
