Back in June I posted about 6 new births in the Spring. Since then we have really picked up the pace! From July through today, Dec 15th, Good Counsel's homes have ushered in 17 new precious bundles of joy bringing our year end total so far to 23 babies. Included in that total are our two sets of twins, Max & Mike and Andrea & Haven. And the year isn't over yet. With two moms due in December and one due early January we could see 3 more babies before we ring the bell on New Year's Eve! Stay tuned!
All of us at Good Counsel would like to thank you for your support and prayers. Because of your generosity we were able to hold the hand of every pregnant woman who came to us through their pregnancy, delivery and postpartum bonding. And with your continued support, 23 tiny new lives are growing up safe and strong and loved not only by their mothers, but by Good Counsel house managers, resident advisors and child care professionals whom work selflessly in each of our homes setting the foundation for each child.
We know that these early days, weeks and months can be crucial in making sure children are not just properly nourished, but truly thriving. After a period of bonding, mothers ease back into their own lives. They are continuing education, applying for jobs and learning new skill sets essential for home ownership and parenting.
Please keep in your prayers all of Good Counsel's mothers, currently 29 reside in our homes, and pray for all our babies, especially these new additions. Pray for them regularly, and consider a recurring donation to support mothers and children pregnant, parenting and in need.
