We had quite the celebration at Good Counsel recently. Some of our readers may remember Marisol’s story and the overwhelming circumstances that brought her to Good Counsel and the bittersweet arrival of baby girl Gypsy and the loss of Gypsy’s twin. A few months ago we happily shared that Gypsy was growing and thriving and Marisol expressed her great devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe for the ongoing health of sweet Gypsy.
Gypsy has since had her first birthday and what a day she had! Gypsy got the princess treatment as some volunteers from The New Testament Church of God, who visit Good Counsel once a month, were on hand for cake and celebration. They even brought along a little birthday cake just for Gypsy. House Manager, Nannette, who feels like a proud grandmother, expressed her joy at Gypsy Mae getting so big and doing more and more things every day. Nanette said, “She will always have small challenges before her in her life, but she’s a fighter and she’ll do great!”
Enjoy these pictures from Gypsy’s special day!
