M. J. - Happiness Found*

“Before I got here I was sad and alone. I had a very destructive life. I didn’t care about me or others. I got kicked out of school and my family didn’t want to be around me. When I came to Mater Filius there was a lot of help and people guiding me. Mater Filius turned my life around. I started doing well in school…all A’s and B’s. I cared about myself, my baby, my family and friends. Now everyone wants to be around me. I’m not sad or depressed anymore. I’m happy about life and what I’m doing with it. I thank everyone for the help and support they gave me.” 

Sofia - A New Life*

Last fall Sofia was living with her boyfriend in South Florida, she was five months pregnant with twins, and couldn't hide it from him anymore. When he found out about the pregnancy, what she feared most happened. He told her "abort, or leave and don't come back."

Sofia found herself alone and on her own. Fortunately, she went to a nearby Catholic Church and met a representative from the Respect Life ministry who assured her she was not alone, and the baby was top priority. The representative from Respect Life called Mater Filius Miami.

We mobilized our Mater Filius Miami community and contacted Mater Filius Dallas. After a 36 hour Greyhound journey, Sofia was in the Mater Filius Dallas Home, receiving the love, care, medical assistance, and spiritual support she needed. Four months later, in February of 2018, Sofia gave birth to two beautiful baby girls.

Anne - Not Alone*

Anne struggled in the early months of her pregnancy with  Dash. Her marriage had fallen apart, her baby was at risk, she was scared, alone, and didn't know where to turn for help.

Thankfully, she found Mater Filius and was given the help she needed! Since our Miami house was not yet open, we were able to connect her with our affiliate location in Texas. Traveling to another state was not an easy decision for her, but ultimately, Anne trusted God, and allowed Mater Filius to help her. We were blessed to do so!
