Anne Pierson and her husband basically started the maternity home/pregnancy care center/caring for unwed pregnant mothers’ movement in the 1970’s. She was recognized by Pres. Ronald Reagan in a national speech in 1984. As a result of her heart for service and his endorsement, many pregnancy centers opened their doors. During the past 40 years, Anne and her late husband created a successful non-profit organization that provided education, support and follow-up for these women in need and for maternity homes and centers. She started a movement and modeled dignity, respect and love for women who chose life and embraced the option of adoption as a loving parenting option. Many professionals have described Anne as a dynamic, funny story-teller who inspired them to embrace adoption in the talks with pregnant women.
