On Friday, September 15, feast of the Sorrowful Mother, a young 17-year-old mother came to our door with her malnourished, pre-mature baby son. He was born after seven months and now, at two months old, he was fighting for his life.
Sr. Danat, had worked in a maternity ward years ago as a nurse, and her skills came back swiftly. Thanks be God she was with us and that our clinic doctor was here working in the pharmacy.
It was suggested that we bring the mother and child to the Missionaries of Charity here in Jacmel or to the hospital. We decided to go to the Sisters, and they took them right away. The Mother will be staying with her baby until he gets strength.
On this feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, we thank God and Our Lady for guiding the way and using us to behold their child…😇
