“Estas madres jóvenes son unas heroínas. Elegir amar a sus hijos en medio de la dificultad: eso es la maternidad”, afirmó Connie Wyatt, Directora de Wise Choices, un ministerio de la Ofrenda contra el Hambre de los Bautistas de Texas que busca empoderar a las familias durante el embarazo y el primer año de vida del bebé al darles esperanza.
