“Returning to my desk after a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend, I am reminded of our TNN Resource Members and Clients whose compassion and personal witness give this celebration its truest meaning. As we anticipate the Nurturing Network’s 30th anniversary year, I am moved by the story of hope and healing that TNN has become for over 24,000 mothers and children. Your generous support is a living tribute to the miracles that can be accomplished when we work together.”
“In responding to the call to help build a culture of life, the Nurturing Network is compassionate and refreshingly apolitical.
We are not interested in joining the debate over whether and how to remove an alternative, but rather, in how best to provide for the urgent and practical needs of any woman faced with an unplanned pregnancy.”
“Dear Mary and all my friends at TNN …
Each time I visit your website, I remember how scared and lonely I was the first time I called you. My daughter is growing up so fast! And we are having so much fun. She is alert and happy. I can only imagine how I will feel when she says she loves me.
Thank you … Aimee”

“My profound respect for the thousands of women whom TNN has served grows with each passing year. These women do not fit any of the stereotypes that you may have been led to expect. Many have been from middle class families and were employed, attending college or had concrete plans to do so. Many could accurately be described as being ‘the best and the brightest.’ But regardless, they have all hoped for a bright furture for themselves and their children. And they have echoed the same sad refrain, ‘I never thought this could happen to me.’
In case you may be tempted to dismiss as marginal these courageous young women, let me remind you that those who call the Nurturing Network come from every walk of life, every academic discipline, every level of achievement, every race and religion, and every kind of family. And yes, they definitely do come from families like yours and mine!”
“Words cannot express how grateful I am for the Nurturing Network. Your prayers and loving support came at during such a hard time in my life. I know the Network will continue to touch people’s lives, changing them forever, like mine. My little girl, Sarah, is a pure gift and truly a treasure! She has already brought much joy into my life. Thank you for all that you have done!
“The Nurturing Network is the reason why I have chosen to be part of the most miraculous blessing possible –giving birth and being a mother.
“As I was watching my toddler playing so happily the other day, I was reminded of how far-fetched this joy seemed just a few months ago. Please tell everyone at TNN how appreciative I am. I will be forever grateful for the generosity and for every ounce of help, love, and support I received from you guys. It means the world to me, and I am truly blessed to have been led to your organization.
Thank you again, Anna”
“The Nurturing Network’s objective is not a political one but a most practical one: To provide an authentic and life-affirming choice to women whose own support networks have let them down. Each woman served by TNN is empowered to move beyond her economic, emotional and social constraints in order to exercise her choice to have a healthy pregnancy and nurture the life of her child.
If you know of a woman who would take encouragment from reading the stories of other mothers who have met this crisis with courage and grace, please direct her to our “TNN Maternal Profiles in Courage.”
Each day offers many reasons to be grateful – especially when the gift of nurturing comes full circle.
Many women whom TNN has supported remain active volunteers and serve other mothers as Inspirational Counselors.
Sarah is just one of these profiles in courage. We invite you to read her story of hope and compassion and from it take encouragement for your own journey.
