Brand New Raising Kids on a Shoestring Website

RKOAS2015Ad-08-31-COLOR-800pxW-232x300Feminists for Life is thrilled to announce our BRAND NEW “Raising Kids on a Shoestring” website filled with free and frugal resources, creative solutions, and practical support for pregnant women, expectant fathers, and parents — including adoptive parents and parents of children with special needs.
We’ve never said that being pregnant, placing a child for adoption, or parenting is easy, but we continue to do our best to make it easier.
All of the great information FFL had in the earlier print format of “Raising Kids on a Shoestring” has been updated and expanded at — and there are new sections and fresh content throughout that build on — and go well beyond — our earlier directories started in 1994:
* Pregnancy & Childbirth
* Food & Nutrition
* About us
* Childcare
* Feeding Your Infant
* Housing, Utilities & More
* Pampering Mom
* Money Management
* New Paternal Support
* Transportation
* Your Special Needs Child
* Education
* New Birthmothers
* New Workplace
* Affordable Adoption
* New Family Law
* Healthcare * Recreation & Fun
* Clothing
* Do’s and Don’ts for New Mommies
* New Safety
You and I can help her get rid of that knot in her stomach — and replace her angst with joy.
Our new “Raising Kids on a Shoestring” website is so accessible and easy for moms on the run to navigate! It is mobile and tablet-friendly.
Supportive family and friends, as well as volunteers and professionals, will also want this online directory of practical resources and solutions. The “Raising Kids on a Shoestring” website should also prove to be an effective tool for pregnancy care centers, social workers, military chaplains and family resource centers on base, parenting support groups, food banks and shelters, and an array of counselors and advisors at colleges and universities and in places of worship.
Abortion is a reflection that we have not met the needs of women. This is our biggest step yet to systematically eliminate the reasons that drive most women to abortion — primarily the lack of resources and support.
According to the Guttmacher Institute:
  • 75% say they have abortions because they lack resources and support at work and school,
  • 69% are economically disadvantaged,
  • 61% of women who have abortions are already mothers…
