Susan Carroll glanced in the rearview mirror at her second-grade son as they pulled into the parking lot on the first day of school. He seemed okay, but she had had false hope before.
For the past two years, both in kindergarten and first grade, Paul had awakened every school morning begging to stay home. He pleaded with Susan in the car, tears spilling down his cheeks. Day after day, she walked him to class where the teacher had to pry him away. Mother and son were both miserable.

She endured when others – those who hadn’t walked in her shoes – judged her when her child struggled publicly.
“It’s one thing for a community to be pro-life and to encourage that, but for that same community to come behind and rally and support those girls that are choosing life and get involved… that’s what we do here with them.” Jen Heart, Development Director at Compassion House.
