Dear Friends of Cradle of Hope,

Two weeks after finding out she was pregnant, Alicia was
laid off from work and learned her pregnancy was high
risk. With frequent hospital visits, the bills were piling up.
Thoughts of divorce crossed her mind as the bill collectors
continued to call. She felt helpless.

I think we can all remember a time in our lives when we
have experienced pain or difficulties. However, there is
usually someone in our lives who can support us, just
enough, so we can make it. The families who seek help
from Cradle of Hope need you to be their support.

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there’s always tomorrow

You just call on me “mama,” when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend
I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need
Somebody to lean on
(Lean On Me – By Bill Withers)

Please join us in supporting the decision for life by contributing
to our Sustaining Fund Drive so we can help families
like Alicia’s. Your gift, in any amount, will make a difference!
