My boyfriend and I recently found out that God is blessing us with a child. I am 5 weeks pregnant and so grateful to be carrying the gift of life inside of me. I am a college student living in West Virginia and my boyfriend is living with his family in South Carolina. He has decided to come stay with me until this semester is over and we can get a house together in South Carolina. We are both recovering drug addicts and have criminal records for minor offenses. I’m afraid this will affect my boyfriend’s chances of finding employment which we need in order to start saving money for our baby. I am asking that others keep us in their hearts and prayers. Pray that my baby is healthy, that my boyfriend and I can stay strong in our sobriety, and he finds employment soon so we may have financial stability when our baby is born. Thank you and God bless.
