One of my favorite gift companies for this particular holiday weekend is The R House Couture. I have several of their custom pieces and have been happy with both the quality of the items and their customer service. The deadline for Mother's Day weekend orders is May 1st, so start shopping, customizing and ordering now!
Some of my personal favorite gift suggestions:
For birth mothers, who are mothers, but find themselves in the midst of this weekend unsure of where they fit into it all.... 1) Baby Bracelet & Matching Necklace 2) Birthmother Necklace 3) I Can Do Hard Things Necklace
For adoptive mothers and/or birth mothers....1) Monogram Necklace (for birthmothers with open adoptions) 2) Silver Tree Charm 3) Everything Happens For A Reason Necklace
For ladies who are waiting to become mothers through adoption...1) Never Give Up Necklace 2) Hope Necklace 3) Eventually Necklace

None of the contact information for the agency has changed and we use the same parking lot that we always have used. Our agency's door is now on the back of the Godparent Home (front side pictured below) and is beside the playground area.
Some folks have asked why LGH & FLS is now in one building and that's certainly a valid question. Since we are a non-profit organization primarily funded by donations, we want to be very cautious of our expenses and be good stewards of the support we are given. The move has enabled us to lower the overhead of the ministry as we now have operating expenses for one building instead of two and has allowed us to utilize every inch of space in the building on a daily basis. In addition, we now have the opportunity to interact several times a day with the LGH staff and residents, which has already provided greater unity for the ministry staff as a whole. Change is always hard, but these are good changes. Feel free to drop by and tour our new place during office hours!
