Hope and healing

There is support. There is forgiveness.
It is over. It is done. It is in the past, but the emotional turmoil and potential guilt following an abortion can live on inside us becoming a heavy burden and hindering joy and freedom in our lives.

Lifeline Family Center offers several resources to support your journey to healing and forgiveness.

  • One-to-one counseling with one of our trained counselors
  • Group counseling with the 10 week Healing Hearts Bible Study
  • The Florida Memorial for the Unborn is a memorial honoring the lives of the unborn and offering comfort and a place to grieve for mothers who have suffered abortion. The Florida Memorial for the Unborn page has directions to the memorial.
  • Links to supportive resources for healing from abortion and miscarriage are located on the Florida Memorial for the Unborn page
