On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers at CPC and Options@328, we wish you a wonderful Christmas and blessed New Year. Over the past 13 months, the staff at our medical services facility, Options@328, has served many women in crisis who have also said "yes" to life! We believe that even if a child is unplanned or unwanted, all life is sacred and has inherent dignity and value. Thanks to you, CPC is reaching more women who are vulnerable to abortion and choosing life! We are blessed to serve, advocate for, and educate women on all the facts about pregnancy, affording them the opportunity to be equipped to say "yes" to the life growing inside them!
I would like to share a recent client story about "Maria". At the beginning of this year, Maria came to Options@328 to confirm a pregnancy that sadly ended in miscarriage at 16 weeks (about 3 and a half months)' gestation. In April, Maria once again became pregnant. Worried about another miscarriage, our bilingual client advocate, Wendy (bottom left), stayed connected with Maria, offering friendship, and praying with her every week. Our client began to prepare for motherhood by taking our free, online Spanish education classes through our BrightCourse program. Although this pregnancy was almost lost to another miscarriage, Mom delivered a premature, but healthy, baby boy, Robert Noel, in early December. Last week, the entire family stopped by Options@328 after being discharged from the hospital since Maria said we treated her like family. Upon arrival, Maria, alongside an immensely proud Papa, said "Hello, friends, let me introduce my baby to you. Thank you for your support during my pregnancy. I am incredibly grateful to all of you. I know that my God will multiply everything you do, and I also know that he will continue to bless you."
Your prayers and support ensure that CPC can make a difference in the lives of women in need in the greater Baltimore area. Thank you for partnering with us!
Also, CPC's 25 Days of Giving Matching Challenge is winding down. Since close of business today, we have raised $65.8K on an $85K goal! Thank you to everyone who has made a gift to date! Your support allows us to continue the essential work of helping abortion-minded women and those in crisis make the choice for life.

Finally, as we ring in the new year, January is known as Sanctity of Life Month for many Christian churches and organizations. Be sure to read (below) about ways your church, business or group can partner with CPC to raise awareness about God's gift of life!
In closing, may the good Lord bless you and your families as we welcome the birth of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
P.S. Our newsletter will resume in February of 2022.
