When Aigis Moukila came to Care Net Frederick, she was the mother of two sons, working, and a full-time student at Frederick Community College. Her life was busy (maybe even hectic) as she struggled with the demands of parenthood, providing for her family, and pursuing a career. Her husband had recently traveled to their home town in Africa to visit family for an undetermined amount of time.

In the midst of her busy life, Aigis suspected that she was pregnant and came to Care Net Frederick for a free pregnancy test. After receiving the positive result, a pregnancy confirmation ultrasound was offered to her. Aigis scheduled the ultrasound appointment and returned two weeks for this appointment. During the two weeks between these appointments, she called her husband to share this pregnancy news with him. As you can imagine, when he left the country, a pregnancy was the last thing on either of their minds. They had many conversations about their next steps. When Aigis returned for her ultrasound appointment she shared that they decided their next step was to get prenatal care. The early ultrasound she received at Care Net Frederick was an important piece of information during her first prenatal visit.

Another important service offered at Care Net Frederick is our Earn While You Learn incentive classes. Aigis was interested in attending these classes so she could get help with baby clothes and diapers. These classes not only helped Aigis, but dozens of women in the Frederick community. She registered for the classes and then asked her employer to change her hours so she could attend the classes. She knew the support and information she would receive from these classes would be a tremendous help to her. Aigis began taking classes during her pregnancy and was able to get diapers, clothing, and much more for her baby! To date, Aigis has taken 50 classes at the center.

Aigis and Loick welcomed their daughter, Lunique Precious, on February 11, 2018. Aigis is now a mother of three children, working, and continues to pursue a career in engineering. Through an opportunity for pregnancy resource centers, Care Net Frederick was able to nominate Aigis for a full four-year scholarship to Regent University. As a recipient of the scholarship, she is now enrolled full-time at Regent University.

When Aigis stepped through the doors at Care Net Frederick back in June 2017, she was struggling with the demands of parenthood, providing for her family, and pursuing her dream to become an engineer. She was concerned about the new pregnancy and how it would impact her future goals. Two years later, she finds herself still on the path to accomplish her dreams and goals.

Care Net Pregnancy Center of Frederick offers compassionate support to all who walk through our doors. Care Net Frederick is funded by direct donations and through the Unity Campaign.

Last time I looked, you need more than baby clothes and diapers for 18 years.

She shouldn't have gotten pregnant with a third child, if she is struggling with the demands of parenthood in addition to everything else. And, why didn't her husband cut short his traveling to family in Africa when he found out that she was pregnant and needed his "support." If he was back home in Maryland, he could have picked up the slack in their lives. Classes?...in what exactly? What classes provide clothing, diapers and so on for a baby? She already has two sons, so she knows all about babies. She doesn't need instructions on how to diaper and feed babies/children.
