Where does New Beginnings fit in to this? Well, take that single, struggling mother and give her a safe place where she can lay down at night with her baby and know that those few possessions she has, won’t get robbed from her. Give her love and support. Guide her toward resources for food and education. Give her diapers, wipes, towels and blankets for her baby. Teach her about God’s love for her and her child. All of a sudden that cry doesn’t mean the same thing. It might mean hope and a future now. It might mean that they can now pass that love onto their child. With a warm place to live and baby’s needs taken care of, the focus of the mother goes from Survive to Thrive.
