DO YOU HAVE A
WE CAN HELP
Changing the narrative surrounding genetic anomalies from HEARTACHE to HOPE
Verity’s Village provides support from DIAGNOSIS to DELIVERY and beyond. Our private support group is a great place to ask questions and connect with others who are going through a similar journey. Seasoned parents will come alongside you as well, sharing valuable wisdom and experience as you carry your special baby and prepare for delivery, whatever that make look like.
All lives have value, purpose, and dignity.
“During the second half of our pregnancy and during Aaron’s short 6 days of life, he taught us so much about hope, strength, faith, unconditional love and how to appreciate every moment of life regardless of your circumstances. We were so blessed to have had Aaron in our lives, even if it was so short. We are forever changed by his love and the love and support we found in this group. If you are just starting your journey, know that you are not alone.” –Jade T
“I’m going to tell you all, this journey is not easy. None of it is. But no matter the outcome, it’s all worth it. All of it. I’d do it again to have that time with my boy again. He was the most beautifully perfect baby I’ve ever seen.
I praise God today, instead of letting the grief sweep me away, that I got to be Rhett’s mama. That I got to know his precious face and rub my cheeks on all his hair.” –Jen B
IT TAKES A VILLAGE
Carrying a baby with a life-limiting diagnosis is not easy. Nor is raising a special-needs child. It truly does take a village to support a family in this situation. If you or someone you love has received a prenatal diagnosis, we would love to be part of your village! Reach out and let us know how we can help you.

A Little About Us
Hi…I’m Beverly Jacobson. Can I be real with you?
Our 9th child pushed me over the edge. I never planned to be a mama of many, let alone a fragile, special-needs baby who wasn’t expected to live past her first birthday. But there I was, feeling overwhelmed on a daily basis, unsure how to continue homeschooling along with the full-time job of learning how to be Verity’s mama. I lived in fear that our fragile little baby was going to succumb to statistics and die. (Spoiler alert: she’s doing amazing!)
I remember those days so vividly: I was drained. Oh, so very drained. The pressure, anxiety, and depression took me to disturbing places from which I was terrified I would never escape. I was scared nothing would ever be normal again…in our marriage, in our family, or in our everyday world. It was a dark, difficult time.
Now? Well, to be perfectly honest, our lives are so much different! I wish I had known then what we know now…because NOW, we face each day with joy and confidence. Oh, I’m not saying life is perfect, by any means. But we are in such a different place than we were during the days of fear and uncertainty. And now Verity’s Village exists as a support ministry to lead others to freedom as well, those who feel overwhelmed by the thought of starting a journey they never asked to take, who feel swallowed up by their circumstances and wonder if they will ever feel normal again…if it’s possible to ever feel JOY again.
YES!! It IS possible! My family and I are living proof! Having a child with an unexpected diagnosis does not have to mean all the negative things you’ve been told will happen. While no one can guarantee the outcome of your journey, we CAN tell you that there are immeasurable opportunities for growth, hope, and joy ahead of you…not to mention a love you never would have imagined.
Come…take this journey with us! Don’t focus any longer on the fear and uncertainty. Let us walk with you from DIAGNOSIS to DELIVERY and beyond. Find joy, peace, and passion along with others in this community who are experiencing the same emotions and asking the same questions you are.
