Baby boy Zealand was born on April 8, 2017 and he is the 1,056th baby born into the Good Counsel family.
Zealand was born at 10:49 a.m. and weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces and he was 19 1/2 inches long. He and his mom, Lakeshia, are home and getting to know one another. Thanks to you, Lakeshia was surrounded by love and support throughout her pregnancy and delivery. Each new life reignites hope and zeal for the mission and ministry of helping homeless, pregnant mothers in need.
Zealand 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 began 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 1,056 (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 Zealand and his mom, Lakeshia.
God is great!
