Life Forward

“I feel like I’m becoming more like the person God created me to be. A stronger woman. A better mother.”

Months after having her first child, LaKetra Stewart was faced with a second unplanned pregnancy. In the midst of self-doubt and disappointment, she struggled to find her way out of the darkness. Thanks to Life Forward, an organization that helps women with unplanned pregnancies, she decided to become a mother for the second time.

Her story is not only brave, strong, and candid, but also a shining example of what happens when an organization dedicates itself to building communities of strong women and children. After all, this is more than just the story of one woman: it is the story of every woman who has ever found herself with an unplanned pregnancy.
