“When we expressed the values of our Brigid’s Path in 2019, we felt it was right to say, ‘We are brave.’ “After all, there has never been a unique, more knowledgeable book that we can go back to,” says Kingston. “Creating a new way to care for drug-infants and their families requires courage. Willingness to adapt. To try new things. This is exactly what we did against the backdrop of the global epidemic. We still welcomed families in crisis, but we wore masks, even more cleansing than normal, and kept working. We continued to love families and lead them. And we will continue to do so because our community needs us. ”

She is doing this to honor her mother, who passed away in 2017. I found the donor compassionate և he created my day. There are some very generous, kind individuals in our community who are really making a difference. Thank you! “
