SHE's 1st Birthday & a New Logo

Today SHE (Sarah, Hannah, and Elizabeth) Support Group celebrated its first anniversary. I can't believe one year has past already!! One of our members won a free birthday cake from a local bakery, so she graciously brought it for our group. Mmmm, chocolate.



A wonderful friend with great graphic prowess designed our new logo. The color is purple, to symbolize the color of waiting:

One year ago, I asked the director of our Family Life Office to place an ad in the bulletins throughout the diocese. Two other girls and I came to our first meeting. I had no idea where the group would go. A year later, it has grown to 6 people, along with a chaplain, and numerous supporters. We've had speakers who have gone through miscarriage, adoption, and the many dimensions of infertility. Our chaplain priest, who was a former OB/GYN (yes, really), has guided us as a group and individually.

Truly, God has made this all happen. He used a weak instrument like me and stretched me beyond any of my wildest aspirations. The fruits have come, too: the group has given us a much-needed support system, companions for Masses and Anointing of the Sick, and most of all, girlfriends. :) They are an incredible group and I feel humbled and blessed to have gotten to know them. I hope more women will come for support...and that our present members will soon receive the joyful gift of motherhood. Sts. Sarah, Elizabeth, and Hannah, pray for us!

Happy birthday SHE! It sounds like such a great group - that is awesome that you have a chaplain. One with some "real world" experience. I have always loved the name of your group and I love that logo too!

My admiration for all of you knows no bounds. You are all the modern day equivalent of Sarah, Hannah and Elizabeth. These great biblical women must be beaming in heaven. Please keep this important ministry alive! God bless all of you!!

Your kind words leave me speechless, dear friends. Thank you! TCIE, you are right; God used my cross to help others. I'm sure He's doing the same with you too. :)
