My husband and I had been married for 12 years and after consulting with many doctors, we were still hoping for a family. We were blessed with an answer to our prayers through Catholic Charities. 

The Daughters of Charity at St. Vincent's Orphanage welcomed my husband (deceased 6-16-1988) and I on two memorable, life changing, joyous occasions. First in 1963, with an infant baby girl born January 18, and again in 1964 with twin daughters born February 20.

After each visit, a Sister of the Daughters of Charity took us to Catholic Charities Chapel to pray in thanksgiving for our beautiful gift from a birth mother who choose life for her baby.  These fond memories and prayers of thanksgiving will forever be held dear in my heart as we celebrate life. 

Thank you Sisters of Charity and Catholic Charities. Congratulations on your 100th Anniversary!
