Please help us in welcoming the arrival of our new baby boy in the Riverside South Jersey home, baby boy Kayden. Kayden was born on his sister's birthday 7/12/23 at 2:30am. He was 6lbs 2.4oz and 19.5 inches long. While we were anticipating celebrating his sister Brooklyn's 2nd birthday he decided to make his grand entrance. Mom, Bonnie, and baby are both home and doing fine. Rest assured, birthday celebrations have been rescheduled for Brooklyn. She will have her day and is very excited to be a big sister. What a gift! Please keep them in continuous prayer.

Baby Boy Kayden

All of us at Good Counsel would like to thank you for your support and prayers. Because of your generosity we are able to hold the hand of every pregnant woman who comes to us through their pregnancy, delivery and postpartum bonding. And with your continued support, 23 tiny new lives so far this year 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, 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.
