Birth Parent Christmas Social

Last night, Gladney's Regional Caseworkers, Erica Andres and Erica Weaver, hosted the sixth annual Christmas Social for birth mothers in Florida.  They turned their regular Monday night support group into a festive holiday dinner including games, fabulous food, and a Christmas gift swap. A huge "thank you" to LifeCare of Brandon Pregnancy Resource Center who helped cover the cost of dinner.  We also want to thank a special donor who donated amazing holiday gift bags to each birth parent who attended.
