Erwin Maternity Care Home

Services for Birthmothers

“I don’t even know where to begin and I don’t know if I can find the words to tell you how I really feel. When I first made the decision to come to Tupelo, I was really nervous. This was my first time ever being away from home for more than a week. Meeting you eased my nerves because you were so nice. You made me feel welcome and part of the “family.” As the days went on and I got to know you even better, I knew I had found two people who accepted me for who I was and didn’t judge me for my mistakes. You helped me realize that God is forgiving and it doesn’t matter what others think. I appreciate you so much. When I left, I was glad to be going home and sad to be leaving. Thank you for dedicating your lives to helping others like me. You were my “home away from home” and I love you.“Kami
