Rayah confirmed her pregnancy with an ultrasound at Care Net in December 2021. Two weeks later she met for the first time with her mentor, Maureen Schwarber. Over the next five months, Maureen guided Rayah through several of the classes Care Net offers expectant and new parents. After her son, Maddex, was born, Rayah sent this beautiful photo and the note below to Maureen.

It was a pleasure spending the last five months with you each week. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for teaching, guiding, and believing in me on how to be the best mom that I can possibly be. I will cherish all the wisdom and advice that you have given Mikah and I for a lifetime. You taught me most of all that if I believe and trust in the Lord, then everything else will fall into place. I am so grateful and blessed that He picked you to be my mentor. I will always stay in contact with you.

Rayah’s letter beautifully illustrates the intentional care and relationship we offer our clients. Our mentors walk alongside them, rejoicing together, teaching, listening, encouraging and loving. What a blessing to see the fruits of their service.
