Over 2 million college-aged women find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy, and many also find themselves without the support of friends or family.
Watch our new video, which tells the story of a young woman who found herself unexpectedly pregnant as a college freshman after a traumatic experience, including her shock at that first positive pregnancy test at 8 months, her relationship with the women who helped her through it all, and her courageous decision to choose adoption.
It’s a beautiful adoption success story, told by the birth mother as well as the adoptive parents whose lives were changed forever by the gift of a child.
At The Avi Project, we train female volunteers to walk alongside students like Emily who face unplanned pregnancy, and we focus solely on the college campus to provide the one-on-one support they need.
If you’re a college student struggling with an unexpected pregnancy, Emily’s message to you is this: know that you’re brave, you’re strong, you’re going to be okay, and you are not alone. Consider calling or texting our team at 720-386-6009 to learn more about the financial, medical, and emotional support that’s available to you - we’re available any time of day or night, and it’s completely confidential and commitment-free.
If you would like to support The Avi Project, we would be so grateful for your help in guiding clients through healthy pregnancies and planning for a hopeful future.
