Hi, I'm Tyson!

Hi I am Evelyn—this is my son Tyson. I was scared to tell my mom when I first found out I was pregnant. Taylor, my fiancé, and I had been dating for 2 years and we were not planning on getting pregnant. My sister-in-law had gone to LAPS for her pregnancy help and encouraged us to do the same. When we got there, we felt very welcomed. The weekly meetings were just what we needed. It wasn’t like we were talking to strangers—it felt like we were talking to someone we had known forever. We are thankful for LAPS being here in Staples. Tyson James is 9 months old and we love and are thankful for him.

 Thank you for giving to LAPS and helping us.

The day had finally come when I saw two pink lines. I was a mix of emotions of mostly excitement and a little bit nervous. My husband and I were married in October of 2016. We both knew we wanted more children. I have a step daughter by marriage. We found out we were expecting on my birthday. This was my first pregnancy and as ready as I was for this baby I still wanted to know more.

Sara's Story:

Karen was my worker who helped me out during my pregnancy. I found out about LAPS by my neighbor since she was pregnant at the same time. Karen helped me learn how to create less stress in my life through talking, videos, and prayers. All the classes gave us a chance to better ourselves as parents. They have awesome clothing selections and baby items to get set up. The best was the baby crib and mattress set which was gently used. Everyone at LAPS has been and had been very helpful and nice since we started through the program. I always let people know where to go if they need some additional help and support. LAPS is amazing.
Thank you for all you have done for us this past year.
