Say Hello to Good Counsel’s First Baby of 2017!

Posted by | January 16, 2017 | News | 3 Comments

Hope for the New Year.

On Wednesday, January 11, 2017, a beautiful baby girl was born and her mom named her Raelynn Hope.  She is a petite 5 pounds, 12 ounces, and 18 ½ inches long.  Raelynn Hope and her mom, Brianna, are residents of our newest home, Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast.  They are doing very well at the moment and we humbly ask for your prayers for this new little family. Raelynn Hope is the first baby of 2017, but she’s also the 1,039th baby born at Good Counsel!

Not too long ago, we celebrated the birth of our 1,000th baby at Good Counsel – and now we begin 2017 with the birth of Raelynn Hope and new hope for the ability to carry out our mission and ministry for homeless, pregnant mothers throughout the New Year.

Brianna and all of the babies born at Good Counsel have been saved because of your faithful, prayerful support and financial generosity.  Because of you, we begin 2017 with hope that our doors will remain open to any homeless, pregnant mother.  We remain grateful and blessed to serve mothers in great need.  But, it all starts with love.  From a warm welcome when a mother first arrives to the tender, loving care that is poured over her as she takes the necessary steps to secure a stable, productive, and successful life outside of Good Counsel for herself and for her family.

Along with celebrating 1,039 (and counting!) babies, we also celebrate our ability to provide countless nights of shelter, thousands of Life Skills classes, and hundreds of hours counseling and guiding each mother as she journeys from despair to hope.  We ask for your continued prayers for our dedicated staff and volunteers in the New Year.

Be sure to sign up for all of the good news from Good Counsel in 2017, you don’t want to miss it!
