Susanne Lange, Director of the Bella Vita Pregnancy Resource Center in Knox, announced that ten young ladies chose life in her remarks from last night’s Bella Vita Fundraising Reception.
Addressing the crowd too at the Knox Community Center was Brandi Pitts, holding her beautiful son Kendrick. She told a story of a frightened young lady going home to tell her parents that she was pregnant. “Don’t be mad at me mom and dad,” she said. To which her parents said, “We aren’t mad, we love you, and we’ll love your baby, too.” Brandi thanked Bella Vita and her mother and father for the support given through birth and beyond.
There were many tears shed when Brandi said simply, “My baby has changed my life in a million wonderful ways because I chose life.”
The evening’s M.C was Vincy Williamowski a Christian Broadcaster who began her career at WKVI in Knox. She was also a 1995 graduate of North Judson-San Pierre High School.
Pledges were solicited to keep the center viable in the community. So far, $9,000 has been raised, but $50,000 is needed.
Over 500 classes were conducted in the past year, including parenting, and abortion healing counseling.
