Belen’s Story

Hello, my name is Belen. I’m 24 years old and this my second time around joining the amazing Bridges Parenting Support Program.

I have a 2-year-old son and I attended class when I was about 4 months pregnant. As a first-time mom, you don’t know what to expect besides what people tell you. I learned so much from stages of pregnancy, breastfeeding, baby’s growth and so much more information they give you. I love going to the classes. You’re surrounded by lovely people who are caring.

My favorite part is when we pray. It brings so much peace. Not only do you get informed with good information, but you get baby essentials that are so helpful for us parents.

So, here I am again, 9 months pregnant expecting my second baby boy, and attending these amazing classes.

Maybe in the future, I will consider becoming a mentor to help other parents as well. Thank you so much to Araceli (the Bridges Coordinator), all the mentors, volunteers, and donors for all your help and time. God bless you all always.
