Please join us in welcoming Good Counsel’s 1,179th baby since 1985! Baby boy Emmanuel couldn’t wait for his due date, so he decided to come a little early at only 36 weeks, on May 21, 2019.

His mom, Nicole, is also doing well and is very happy to be able to embrace her son “with all the love, care, and support of her family and Good Counsel.
