Erin is one energetic young lady!  Her time at Good Counsel has been a flurry of activity, making sure she does all she can to create a stable, independent environment for herself and her baby who was due on July 22nd.  She very much enjoys going through all of the programs that Good Counsel has offered her, including life skills classes and preparation for job seeking after her baby is born.  Erin showed no signs of slowing down as her due date approached.  She didn't slow down after her baby decided that July 22 was not going to be her birthday either!

Erin was very excited to give birth - so when the day finally arrived, she was thrilled to meet her baby girl, Rebecca, on July 30th, 2017 at 8:01 a.m.  Rebecca was 8 pounds, 7 ounces at birth and is the 1,078th baby to join the Good Counsel family.  They were discharged to home and have been doing wonderfully since.  We ask for your continued prayers for this determined and humble young mother and her baby girl.

Along with celebrating 1,078 (and counting!) babies, we also celebrate our ability to provide countless nights of shelter, thousands of Life Skills classes, and hundreds of hours counseling, guiding each mother as she journeys from despair to hope. We ask for your continued prayers for our dedicated staff and volunteers in 2017.
