"At 18, I was a wild child. I didn't have any responsabilities. I didn't want any. I just wanted to go out and have fun.”

The first few months were anything but easy. She admits that at one point, it seemed like the only viable option was to have an abortion.

"That's the first thing you think about. It seems like an abortion will solve your problems. It's the first thought that pops into your head when you learn of an unwanted pregnancy. You think, I don't want this baby and the reaction is to reject it.” 

Things changed when she found  a pro-life foundation, named 'Chile Unido', or United Chile. There, she received psychological support and logistical help. Eventually, she decided to keep her baby.

"I don't know what I'd be doing now if my son wasn't with me... I don't want to even think about it.  I don't want to imagine how my life would be without him, because he's the greatest thing that ever happened to me.”

The Foundation is committed to promoting family and life values. It offers help and guidance to mothers with unwanted pregnancies, so that they don't feel alone. 

To reach out to others, the foundation released a series of videos where women share how they were able to overcome fear and doubt, thanks to the support and guidance of the group.
