What a way to start off a week! Riverside has home announced their newest addition! Welcome to the world, baby girl, Shaneice! She was born Jan 29th at 2:46 pm, weighing 6lbs 8.8oz. and measuring 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are doing great. They are expected to be home either Monday or Tuesday. God is good!
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, 3 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, 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.
