Welcome. We are glad that you have found
A Child of Promise was founded to support and guide families who
are making the difficult choice to continue their pregnancies
to term following an adverse prenatal diagnosis.
These diagnoses might range from such conditions as a limb abnormality
or cleft palate, to more severe conditions such as Down’s
syndrome or spina bifada, to fatal conditions such as anencephaly
or Trisomy 13 or 18. In addition, families presented with options
such as in-utero surgeries or a selective reduction in the case
of multiples are welcome.
Are you feeling like there is no one on your side to support
you in your choice to continue your pregnancy? Or do you just
need someone to talk through the options you have to help you
make a choice that you and your family can live with? We are
here to help.
A Child of Promise is based on Christian principles and counsels
from that foundation. However, you need not be of a Christian
background to seek assistance here.
A Child of Promise offers one-on-one counseling with families
who have found healing following continuing their own pregnancy
following an adverse prenatal diagnosis. Our goal would be to
also incorporate group support as our organization grows. This
counseling is available in-person in the Memphis, TN
area or by e-mail for those outside of the area.
Note: One difficulty in making this webpage, is providing advice
equally to the variety of conditions which bring you to us.
For some, the child's condition is not life-threatening, while
for others their child will die before, at, or shortly after
birth, and for still others their child will be miraculously
healed. I hope that each of you will remember this as you glean
whatever you can from these pages.
