50 years old is a significant milestone to celebrate, especially when the doctors and experts said you probably wouldn’t get to see your third birthday. Martha celebrated hers in true Hollywood fashion, complete with red carpet and glamour! She has had many successes and celebrations in her life, as well as some devastating setbacks, yet the faithfulness of her family, Holy Angels and our donors are to be credited for making Martha the woman she is today…Fifty and Fabulous!
Rom and Meli were eagerly anticipating the birth of their first child, but weren’t expecting the news of Down syndrome and a severe heart condition when she was born. As new parents they navigated the world of disabilities the best they could, and then decided on faith to place Martha in the care of Holy Angels, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Mercy.
And what faith– Martha not only survived, she thrived! Martha has enjoyed being a teacher’s assistant at a local elementary school and was one of the first residents to work at Cherubs Café. Today she can be found working at Spruced Goose Station – Gifts & Art Studio - making candy bouquets.
The faithfulness of everyone working together helps make miracles like Martha happen each day at Holy Angels. We thank you, our donors, for your faithful support. Rom and Meli join me in asking you to make a gift today in honor or in memory of someone who has faithfully supported you in your lifetime – your mother, your father, your children, a friend, mentor or Martha. Thank you for keeping the faith in our ministry of unconditional love!
Thank you for your faithfulness!
