We’ve seen this happen over an over. A woman comes to CPO in crisis and gets help from CPO. Then years later, she returns to serve others. Below is an interview with one such gal. We love you Hannah!
An Interview with Hannah Albright
By Christina Domer
When did you first join the CPO family?
I first came to the parenting support group at age 19 when I found out I was pregnant.
How long have you served at CPO?
I have co-led the parenting group for 2.5 years!
In what capacity do you serve?
-Leading the parenting group with Tracie
-Helping match mentors and mentees
WHY do you serve?
In the last 10 years, God has shown so much provision over my life. A few years ago, I heard Him saying that I was supposed to return to the place that supported me through such a hard, unpredictable, unplanned time of my life. I am a member of Christian Chapel and one Sunday morning our pastor was talking about CPO needing some volunteers and immediately the Lord told me to serve.
How has serving blessed you?
When God called me to co-lead the parenting group, my husband and I were in the midst of the storm of unexplained infertility. I felt a stab in my heart thinking that nothing could be more torturous than spending time around mothers and babies when I was so deeply longing for a baby myself. We struggled for 1.5 years to get pregnant, and once again, in God’s faithful provision, we got pregnant 6 months after I started at CPO. When you obey, God shows His goodness. So, in short, serving has blessed me because it’s taught me that the Lord honors obedience, even when it’s hard and we don’t see the outcome or the reasoning.
