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. Our newest resident in the Bronx was just settling in and her baby girl must have been very excited to see the place. On the way to the hospital in the ambulance, Baby Amor couldn't wait any longer...
Amor, born on May 21st, weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Mom and baby are doing well and are expected back home later this week. We pray that the ride back to the Bronx home is nice and peaceful!
Amor is the 1,062nd baby born into the Good Counsel family!
Amor 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.
