Hello everyone, my name is Shannon and I am 22 years old. My daughter’s name is Holly and she is ten months old and was born on December 8, 2012. I came to Lifeline in August of 2012 from Colorado after finding out that I was pregnant with nowhere else to go. Since I have lived in Southwest Florida before I felt that God was leading me back to Florida to pick up the pieces of the life that I had left behind, Lifeline seemed like the perfect place to do that.
Since coming to Lifeline I have been able to face many of the things that I have been running from and found healing for the emotional wounds that had been wreaking havoc in my life for years. I also started school at Vanguard University and have been taking classes online since March of 2013. I am currently pursuing my Associates degree in Early Childhood Education and expect to receive my certificate in December of this year.
I recently started my internship at Cape Christian Preschool teaching in a class full of four year olds! So much fun! Also, I was able to buy one of the cars that was donated to Lifeline with Lifeline Bucks (make believe money I earned for working the program), and am able to drive myself to work and back. Life is coming together so miraculously and there is no other explanation than God.
I know that He is blessing me for coming back to Florida and not running away. But most of all, I know that He is blessing me for the decision that I made to give life to my daughter. My daughter, Holly, is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and can turn even the worst of days into the best of my entire life! I love her and thank everybody who contributes to my
being able to support her for this season of my life! Thanks for all your love and support!
Shannon and Holly
