Recently, during a Spirituality Class at one of our homes, our moms wrote down and then discussed what they are most thankful for. The things they are most grateful for, shelter, security, and health for themselves and their babies, food to eat… are possible because of you, our donors. Our moms and babies have all they do because of your generosity in prayer, generosity of spirit, and generosity of time, talent, and treasure. In a lot of instances, your tender, loving care is the first unconditional love our moms have ever experienced.
In our mom’s own words…
