Real Help for Real Needs

We have Nurses, Counselors, Teachers and Mentors experienced in social work that care about you! We take walk-ins or we can come to you and provide resources. We provide whatever you may need to take care of your babies, infants and toddlers. 

Our caring Team of volunteers are here for you. Confidential, Non-Judgmental help 24/7. You do not have to face life’s struggles alone.

Where we started

      Our founder worked as an RN in Labor and Delivery for 15 years. She watched many lives enter this world. She also worked helping pregnant moms and newborns in their homes. After several years she realized that families needed more help than she could offer within the scope of her work. She started this ministry in the trunk of her car, offering families extra diapers, formula and clothing donated by other moms and community agencies for families in crisis. She then began working with volunteers to provide these families with rides and extra life coaching in their homes. She helped moms get into drug rehabs, helped with schooling, temporary housing, job searching and tasks of everyday life.

      She and her team became strong advocates for families in 2012, helping in reunification cases with the state. In 2014, we fully facilitated our first private open adoption. Now we are helping couples who cannot conceive children naturally, adopt at NO CHARGE. In 2016 we teamed up with a local law firm and continues working with private, open adoptions. It was clear that the time had come to turn this God-given calling into a mission with open doors. On Nov 21, 2017 Yourothermother became incorporated as a Non-profit in Missouri. We are a 100% pro-life, Christian organization governed by an active Board of Directors.
