John and Lydia had both struggled with addiction. John was working on becoming clean and sober. He tells us that the love of his love is still in addiction. Staff at the Community Life Centre offer to pray for her. The next time John comes for a visit he brings her along. The caseworker talk to her about what getting sober and what they would mean for her. They talk about what the future could look like for the two of them. A series of appointments occur and then John tells our caseworker that Lydia is pregnant. She is in a program and they are preparing for the baby. One year later, the baby is thriving and they are doing well.
“You guys have been here through the crazy times. You were always there for both of us. We felt just really cared for. That’s why when we found out that we were pregnant, you were one of the first that we told,” said John.
