"I feel so great as a parent now."
Gabriela gave birth to her daughter, Zoe, in 2019 and was referred to our Supported Parenting Program by the hospital. She has her father and aunt who provide support, and Gabriela was determined to learn as much as she could to be a good mother to her daughter. Our Catholic Charities' Family Support Worker started out doing activities with Gabriela and Zoe, such as floor time and tummy time, and creating a routine to help with Zoe's sleep schedule and feedings. Gabriela keeps track of all the information that was shared about Zoe's development. Zoe is now six months and is thriving, reaching new milestones. Gabriela's aunt came to visit again for the holidays and continues to be a wonderful natural support for Gabriela and Zoe. "My aunt and Family Support Worker have made me a more confident parent. I feel so great as a parent now."
