Amazing adoption victory for Born 2 Care

28 March was a day of an amazing victory at Born to Care for the Community!!!

One of our counsellors, Susan, met a strongly abortion-minded client towards the end of 2013 and through God's grace the client decided after the counselling that she would rather gift her baby to a loving home through adoption rather than kill her child.

A beautiful little baby girl was born on the 13th of March at Bernice Samuel Hospital in Delmas by this client and she left her there as she was suffering with the struggles of wanting to give her baby away and becoming attached.

Over the following 2 weeks, Born 2 Care's volunteers communicated with the social workers to finalise the adoption and helped feed, bath and love baby Precious, named by Gail Geldenhuys who spent the most time caring for her in the hospital. On the 28th of March the social worker came with Baby Precious' new parents to fetch her from the hospital and take her to her new loving home! The new parents have now named the little girl Susan after our counsellor Susan Van Eeden!
