Our maternity home has been very busy over these last few months! We’ve had a birth, new ladies move in, two ladies find jobs, one start her GED, several find church homes and even had a time to learn a little knitting! While the job is challenging at times, we feel very blessed to have the opportunity to walk with these women. Please continue to keep them in your daily prayers.
We have had five ladies with us to date. Two more are currently in the application process. We are thankful for each and every one of them and hope that the Lord will continue to bless them as they strive to care for their children, born and unborn. We pray that the Lord will give them courage to align their lives with His Will.
We have two mamas very close to delivery! We will hold a baby shower/welcoming party on Saturday, April 25th at 12 noon at St. Mary’s Catholic Center. Please join us in celebrating these two lovely women and welcome their babies into the world!
We are and will always be in need of volunteers! Homes like ours rely heavily on the support from our volunteer community.
