I remember—all too well—my first attempt at changing a diaper.
It was back in 1985, when God called me to help homeless, pregnant women. I was 27, single, with absolutely no experience in caring for a baby! I confess, that first diaper was a mess even before the baby did anything in it.
I never imagined, way back then, Good Counsel would still be going strong 30 years later, helping moms and their babies. Over the years, I’ve clung to Isaiah 41:13, where God says, “For I am the Lord your God who grasps your right hand; It is I who say to you, Do not fear, I will help you.”
And Good Counsel is here – by God’s faithfulness and the compassion of generous friends like you!
This is why I’m writing today. Nine new babies are expected to be born to moms in our homes in the next 90 days. To care for them, and provide food, formula, and basic household supplies, I need $8,100. Please prayerfully consider giving a generous gift right now.
You’ll make it possible for a young woman to keep her baby. You’ll give her a safe, secure, loving home as she cares for her little one and gets on her feet. You’ll help her learn to care for her baby, hold her baby, feed her baby … even how to change her baby’s diaper!
Please let me hear from you quickly. I need you. The mothers need you. And the babies need us all.
Thank you for responding from a heart of compassion. God bless you.Donate Now
