Without a home and only a part-time job, Janey considered having an abortion when she discovered she was pregnant again.
The young Missouri mother already had a 4-year-old daughter to take care of, and she later learned she was expecting triplets — overwhelming news for any mother.
But a visit to the Pregnancy Resource Center of Rolla in Missouri changed her life and her children’s forever. There, the young mother found a community that was eager to help her and her children thrive.
Joseph X. Dalton, founder and executive director of the pregnancy center, told LifeNews that when they met Janey, she came in considering an abortion.
She was “a mother of a very rambunctious 4-year-old, part-time employee of [a fast food restaurant] and technically homeless, sleeping on someone’s couch,” Dalton said. “When she and her boyfriend learned that they were having triplets, that is when things got very real for them.”
Ever since Janey chose life for her triplets, Dalton said the local community has provided her family with overwhelming support.

Abortion proponents always say “Who will pay for this child? Who will care for the mother?” Collectively our community has raised it’s hand and said in a loud voice, “We will!”
Janey is now a resident at our local maternity home, St. Raymond’s. This is not your average maternity home either, more of a transitional home to self sufficiency. Their exclusive curriculum titled “My Amazing Life Plan” focuses on the 7 core competencies of self sufficiency. Our pregnancy center and St. Ray’s will do whatever is necessary to help this young family to stand on their own two feet.
St. Raymond’s has had to take extra steps in order to accommodate these babies from buying extra baby beds to a plan to hire a night nurse to stay with Janey for the first two months. Our pregnancy center found a car for her and gifted it to her that will fit all of the children as well. 25 volunteers have signed up to rock babies after they come.
My point is that we do it all. Our community literally gives hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to our pregnancy center and St. Raymond’s so we can support mothers like this. What would Planned Parenthood have done for Janey besides take her $2,000?
Janey is due to give birth to the triplets – two girls and a boy – within the next two months, he said.
Dalton said the pregnancy center has been open for 10 years and has helped save 2,345 babies and moms from abortion in that time. He said they give God “all of the credit and glory” for helping them help mothers and babies in Rolla.
