Family Stories



I’ve wanted to have children for as long as I can remember. When I decided to move forward with becoming a parent, a family member unexpectedly fell ill, and my desire to grow a family of my own was put on hold. Now that my focus is back on family planning, I am thrilled to be able to move forward with having a child. Thanks to a financial grant from the Chicago Coalition for Family Building Life Foundation, I am thankful to be able to continue on my journey to become a mom.
