Happy Birthday Isabella!
On Sunday, February 12th, baby Isabella made her entrance into the world. Isbaella is the 1,044th baby born into the Good Counsel family. She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces. Mom and baby are home and doing well at the moment, getting to know one another. Please pray for Isabella and her mom.
Not too long ago we celebrated the 1,000th Good Counsel baby and then began 2017 with the birth of Raelynn Hope at Good Counsel Mary’s Shelter Gulf Coast. Each new life brings all of us hope and zeal to carry out our mission and ministry for homeless, pregnant mothers in need.
Isabella 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 1,044 (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 2017.
Feel free to leave a note of encouragement or prayer in the comments below for Isabella and her mom.
God is great!
