Welcome, Baby Amaris!

Posted by | August 08, 2015 | News | No Comments

Please help us welcome the newest, beautiful addition to our Good Counsel Family! Baby girl Amaris was born on July 27th, weighing in at a happy 6 pounds, 8 ounces. Amaris’ mom came to our Good Counsel home very sick and in need of a lot of tender, loving care due to her high-risk pregnancy. Many of our staff worked above and beyond to minister to Mom and baby to ensure a safe, healthy, and happy delivery.

Good Counsel House Manager, Eva Newton, was on deck as Mom’s birth coach which she was more than excited about. Eva said, “As the birth coach, I cut the cord… I had never had that experience before!  God was so present in the room.  Mom was a champ, and baby was a willing participant. This is our mission and for this we are called.”

We are all called to love, and specifically here at Good Counsel we are called to love pregnant mothers in the direst of circumstances. Out of love, we open our doors and provide a home, guidance, care, counseling, life skills, and parenting classes all toward helping a once scared, pregnant young woman become secure, independent, and able to provide for herself and for her family.

We are not called to betrayal. We are called to love. Where there is love, there is hope. And where there is hope, there is life.

Do you feel called to help more women like Amaris’ Mom who courageously said, “Yes!” to life?  Click here for more information on how you can help support a culture of life.
