Brigid’s Path, an inpatient facility for drug-exposed infants in Kettering, Ohio, has welcomed over 25 little ones since December, 2017. Each baby brings smiles to the staff and volunteers. We rejoice as we see them grow and thrive in every way until the time comes when they return home to a family member. Our family advocates do a fantastic job of working with the Moms and families, helping them find a pathway to healing and wholeness.
Many Sisters (of the Precious Blood) who live at Salem Heights (4960 Salem Avenue, Dayton) are involved as prayer support for our babies and families. The name of each tiny arrival is given to an individual Sister. This love and prayer support is so appreciated by family and staff. No wonder miracles happen! Brigid’s Path Vision Statement motivates everyone involved — “Engaging and improving families with hope and compassion.”
Both Sister Jean René Hoying and I are so privileged to be associated with Brigid’s Path and its wonderful staff and so appreciate the Sisters’ interest in and support for this facility.
