Once a week our House Managers gather with administrative personnel on a teleconference where news from each individual Good Counsel home is shared.  It’s a productive meeting where joys and sorrows, hopes and dreams, and challenges are shared and accomplishments are celebrated.  It offers the chance to collaborate, share positive outcomes, and ask for prayers.  The notes from just one of our weekly meetings offer both a broad and intricate picture of our mission statement in action.

Here are the top 5 updates from this week’s teleconference…

What if an unborn baby could text God?

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.
