Melissa's Story

We are working tirelessly at Matrix, connecting with women who are facing enormous obstacles and feel abortion is their only pregnancy option.

The decision-making process for a woman considering abortion is COMPLICATED! Women are overwhelmed, in trauma, abusive relationships, homeless, married, and unsure if they want a child, the list of obstacles continue.

For almost ten years, I have researched ways to help women in these situations, to show-up for them in their time of need, to help them see their inner strength and value. For over 40 years, Matrix has been a place of HOPE, LOVE, ENCOURAGEMENT, PEACE, A SHAME REMOVER, and overall breath of fresh air for many women.

When I feel I am not enough to lead in this mission, God reminds me to dig deeper, wait patiently, try harder, do better, love more, and get creative.

I do this because when I look in the faces of these women, I see the pain runs deep, the tears that freely flow down her cheeks when she's alone, I see her shoulders cave as the pregnancy tests positive lines appear, and her dreams seem to disappear. All of her plans have suddenly changed, and the obstacles of life seem SO much more significant than they did before she found out she was pregnant.

If you haven't been in this situation, it is hard to understand.
Feeling unloved, unwanted, hurt, unheard, and insecure makes life complicated. Add pregnancy, and you now have the perfect recipe for abortion.

What do we do? How do we end abortion? How do we help?

YOU SHOW UP for her and help her see what GOD sees in her. You do this without judging, shameful remarks, your opinion of her past decisions. YOU SHOW UP by allowing her to know that she is resilient, she can thrive and handle what feels impossible because she is strong. So, in the moments where she is facing the fear of the unknown, she is BUILT up and CONFIDENT. You help her create a plan to be pregnant and reach for her dreams. You help her overcome her obstacles. YOU help her rewrite her story. YOU are the pivot person. YOU be her PERSON!

If she needs a place to live- YOU HELP HER FIND A PLACE TO LIVE. If she needs food- feed her. If she feels alone- SIT WITH HER. Tell her what you SEE in her!

Her life has meaning and purpose. YOU have to love her and meet her basic needs before she can think about choosing life for her baby. SHE is a human. SHE needs love. SHE needs grace. SHE needs hope.

Be a hope dealing, mama loving, baby saver.
BE HER PIVOT PERSON!
Dig deep with me. Don't give up. End the need for abortion by showing up for HER. Give for HER.

Celebrate Motherhood. Empower women to CHOOSE life!

Matrix LifeCare Center's Story

Your support through this community-wide virtual baby bottle campaign will empower women in unplanned pregnancies to choose life for their preborn baby.  

From Mother's Day to Father's Day, Matrix LifeCare Center has several churches and organizations that participate in our baby bottle campaigns.  These campaigns are pivotal in helping us provide services to women in our community.  Due to social distancing, we are unable to disperse the bottles to families to put their change, cash, and checks in to help SAVE lives.  

Your support will provide women seeking pregnancy options the opportunity to speak with one of our pregnancy options experts one-on-one.  The expert will create a specialized care plan, including an ultrasound, to confirm she has a viable intrauterine pregnancy.  Her expert will also provide her with the resources she needs to overcome the obstacles she is facing in life that would prevent her from continuing her pregnancy.  

Your support shows these women that their community believes in the value of her life and her baby's life!  Your support shows her that you want her to thrive, you want her to know she is loved,  and that you believe she can be a mother and reach her dreams in life.  

Thank you for your partnership in this life-changing and saving mission.  Let's celebrate all mothers through this campaign. 



*The CARES Act (House Bill 748), passed by the federal government, allows donors to deduct up to $300 in charitable contributions from their 2020 taxes “above the line.” This means anyone who makes a $300 donation in 2020 will be able to deduct it from their taxes even if they don’t itemize their taxes next year. Those that do itemize will still get the standard deduction plus this $300 gift deduction.
