When Mia Rose was born, her mom, Genesis, said, “She is so gorgeous.  You should see her, she is so pretty.  I am in love with her.”  Everyone at Good Counsel celebrated Mia Rose’s birth in a special way because she was the 1,000th baby born into the Good Counsel family.

Mia Rose has been a special blessing to Good Counsel.  Mom Genesis’ willingness to share her story, allowing us to check in during her stay with us, and even now, she keeps in touch sending us updates from time to time.  Her continued contact with Good Counsel affords a unique opportunity to see the tangible results of what Good Counsel can do for a homeless, pregnant mother, to witness her journey from despair to hope.
