"Because of Option 1 and the Christian counselor here, the father of Ella is now my husband and we are happily married. We had a rocky start, but God was faithful in helping us learn to communicate and let go of the past and old baggage from our previous lives. We have since started helping another couple here at Option 1. God can take a mess and turn it into a beautiful message of hope. No matter what age you are, Option 1 can help you learn how to be the best parent that you can be."
"I finally found peace and forgiveness surrounding that decision that I made so long ago. The pain of abortion is something that no person should have to endure. At Option 1, I experienced a loving and supporting atmosphere-the professionals there really just wanted to help meet my needs and provide a safe place for me to finally begin to heal. I would absolutely recommend Option1 to anyone who has suffered an abortion or who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy."
"I made a turnaround in my life and found myself here in Brookings, SD. I had received individual counseling regarding my life decisions, but began to seek out post-abortion counseling. That’s when I heard about Option 1. I joined the post-abortion counseling and Bible study, Forgiven and Set Free. I met four incredible women, each had a different journey than I, but yet we shared a bond. This is when my true healing began. I was allowed to love the baby I did not have. I was able to forgive myself. I am so thankful for Option 1 and the healing that I experienced."
