Some mothers come to Good Counsel months before their due date, others arrive just a few weeks before, and sometimes mothers arrive and then leave the next day.

May 12th in New York City was extra special! Not only was it Mother’s Day weekend, but Good Counsel held its annual Ball for Life where we honored WPIX-TV 11 News Reporter Monica Morales, who has done a number of exceptional stories about our work and mothers over the years.
Please enjoy this short video from the evening:
Let’s not forget any mother today, in our thoughts and prayers, even the one who is very much motherly, but has never even conceived a child. In her heart, her love and caring is all as real as Our Mother Mary, who bore just one Son, but is now the New Mother of All The Living.
Baby boy Thierry was born on May 4, 2017 and he is the 1,058th baby born into the Good Counsel family!
Thierry was born at 1:39 p.m. and weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and he was 21 inches long. He and his mom, Miriam, are doing very well and big sister Ashley was very excited to welcome her new baby brother. Thanks to you, Miriam 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. Read More
The devastation to unborn children from abortion is obvious. However, with over 58 million abortions in our country, it is hard to imagine that they would be the only children impacted.
Time after time, I have kids come up to me to tell me about their aborted siblings and their mother’s pain. What most of them fail to go into is the pain that abortion has caused in their own lives.
It is remarkable how many kids, when they learn of an abortion in their family, react with the statement, “so now things make sense.” It is as if a missing piece of their lives that they were so aware of, suddenly has put the puzzle of life together for them.
It doesn’t seem to matter if the abortion was before or after their birth, the impact remains in the fabric of the family, affecting every member to some degree. Read More
