Thank you for this story, with its strong messages of contraceptive responsiblity as well as hope for women & children of unplanned pregnancies. Discrimination against and rejection of single mothers & their children is rife around the world.

And parents who support their children & grandchildren through and beyond pregnancy are so vital to abolishing this stigma.
