You did it! You helped us pay off all Good Counsel bills for last year.
Thanks to an overwhelming response, right up to New Year’s Eve, online gifts and checks, which were opened these first weeks in January, gave us enough funds to pay the bills. Thank you. I thank God for you.
God is good to us in innumerable ways. Christmas Eve in our Spring Valley home a boy was born, one of 30 babies born during the year. Another mom whose baby was born days before said, “My baby is the best Christmas gift ever!”
Many staff and moms were teary eyed seeing all the Christmas gifts. Church choirs came to carol and moms sang along, babies in arms.
Another mother who had moved out and living on her own brought over a lasagna to give back. At our Harrison home Good Counsel moms volunteered to serve meals at a nearby Salvation Army. How gratifying it was. Any eye-opener, too. All recognized how much you help us at Good Counsel.
Our needs continue every day at our four homes with every bedroom and couch filled. Your continued prayers and financial support will allow each mother who calls a chance at having real hope and concrete help.
How grateful I am for all you did last year. Please keep praying and helping.
Know you remain continuously in my prayers each day at Mass and in my private prayers. You are a blessing to me and to every mother and baby I know.
God bless you.
Good Counsel Executive Director
