All of the Good Counsel homes have been bustling lately. There is a lot of excitement about babies about to be born, babies recently born, and new moms who have become part of the Good Counsel family. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating 1,000 babies and now we welcome Baby Kalib, who is the 1,070th baby we have been blessed with.
Kalib was born on June 28th at 9:29 pm. He weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Kalib and his mom, Laura, are doing very well are expected to be discharged to home in the next couple of days.
Kalib 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 1,062 (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.
