Small Town Hope
I am 13 years old and in the 7th grade. For my 13th birthday my aunt, one of my biggest role models, gave me a key that had 'hope' inscribed on it. I live in a small town and when a new 19 year old moved into town with only a box and a small house everyone couldn't help but wonder "who is this girl?!" Eventually I met her through church and she was amazing! Her story was amazing to! She firmly believed in saving your virginity for your husband. She got raped by a boy she thought loved her. Now at 19 she's 6 months pregnant with this young man's (who she refuses to name) child. I gave her my key and she then decided to keep the child, instead of adopting her out and named her Hope. It was a great feeling and I can't wait for my second key to come and do it again!
