It was a day of bad men. Sorry to say that because we have nothing but good men come into Focus to receive the help that they needed. But today was different, unfortunately.
The first man is the boyfriend of our pregnant client Miss T. who came in for a pregnancy test & was scheduled to go to Compass Care of an ultrasound the very same day but didn't. He is the father of this baby & four other children, with her, but the man is not with it at all. I called many times to talk to Miss T but he wouldn't give her the phone & then when I called days latter he hung up on me twice. I really don't know if she's still pregnant. He came in to get diapers & I spoke sternly to him. One of our volunteers said that when he came in she smelled Marijuana on him, she is an Registered Nurse. I gave him the diapers & he left & he texted me an unkind text.......scary. I did not respond for he pretended to be Miss T.. So sad!!
Then the other man was unkind to Martha. I was in the office & heard what he was saying to her & I got up from my chair & told him he had to leave, as he was going down the stairs, or I would call 911. Hopefully we will not see them again unless they get better. Please God please!!
Otherwise it was a fruitful day helping people in need & they were all grateful.

It was a good day, for I had Martha with me, & Linda came latter on to help. We saw many nice clients that appreciated what we were doing for them. The smile on their faces is priceless.
I worked in the office that looks so much better now for we have put many things away & it looks less messy. Thank you to all who helped me especially Bobbie, she was wonderful.
I went to Holy Hour, at St. Joseph's Church, in the evening instead of the late morning before Focus, it's much more quieter & I did miss the people that were there. It's been awhile.

Early this morning I received a phone call from a young woman who said that her boyfriend & his mother wants her to have an abortion but she doesn't want to. Praise God to hear that. She needed lots of support & we talked for awhile. I called her this afternoon & asked if Jessica could call her to talk to her & she said "yes". Grate!! She was headed to the doctors for she was in pain. She is under so much stress. I told her to call me anytime day or night & to keep in touch & she said that she would. She sounds like a very nice girl. She is working & has her own apartment. She had called the Police on him but they said that they could not help her. She is seeking out an Order of Protection but probably won't get one, for you have to have marks on you first, or be dead....sorry dear girl. The Lord is with her & her precious baby. I emailed all to pray & they will.
Martha, Joan. Lynda, Annette & Frank were here today to work.....hallelujah. I got a lot done in the office today, yeah!!

When I arrived to Focus there was Martha, Frank & Fred helping, it was great! Fred fixed the doorbell. Yeah!! I was in the office mostly for we didn't see many clients today. Latter on Jackie came & we had a meeting for we are going to change the Sign In sheets to Index Cards, trying to get to know our clients better & this should help. We want to be better. We see many people from different countries to assist & clients in pain too.

There was Martha & I all afternoon until Linda came much later but we made out just fine. Trying to have someone volunteer for Tuesdays from 1 pm to 3 pm but it is so difficult. Oh well!!!
I received a call from a man who runs the Perinton Food market & he had many boxes of lactating cookies to give us & I said "okay". He & his volunteers brought them into the center & now we have many boxes of lactating cookies. We never know what we will receive at Focus. Grateful!!
Jackie came into Focus, to instruct us regarding the new Index cards, for our clients, we'll see how this new system will work out.
I was in the office most of the afternoon & Martha worked out in the Main Room, it seems to work. Mike stopped by to see if we had a podium. No we didn't. He asked me to send a paper to Rochester Area Right to Life, & I did.

A good day with so many people helping us out. There was Lynda, Joan, Annette, Roberta (Bobbie) & even Frank came to help.....yeah!! A lot got done & we saw clients to help them out with supplies for their children & themselves. Bobbie wrote the Tax Exempt letters out to our generous donors, God bless them all.
Lynda & I got upset when two Catholics came in with donations & starting talking. The one friend stated that the other friend's daughter went to Planned Parenthood to get contraceptives. The mother said that was fine for she was sexually active & should have them & doesn't agree with the Church's teaching on contraception. Really!! She would not listen to what Lynda & I said about contraceptive drugs. So sad!!!!

Roe vs. Wade
46 years of killing babies in America
We had a very bad winter storm & my car had at least one foot of snow on it & it was completely covered. I cleaned off my car & broke the boom I was using to clean it off. I finally got to Focus at 9:10 am & people were already here. The kitchenette was covered with food, fruits, bagels donuts & coffee. How nice! I saw Fr. Leone & then four other Priests that were here There was Fr. Tony, Fr. Evan Simington, Fr. Mike Mayer & Fr. Jim Hewes. Felt so happy to see them at Focus along with a lot of other Pastors in other Denominations. Pastor Walter Hoye spoke at Focus today & will speak again tonight. It was splendid to be a part of this wonderful presences of good pro lifers. The speakers were informative & I learned so much. Mike lost a cover to the Podium that he rented. Jim was so gracious in his talk & presentation.
Martha's daughter Katie brough so many nice kids things for our clients children. My office was a mess but later on we put everything away. I do not like messes.
I took a picture of a little girl who took the Kitchenette that Martha's grandson gave away. He will be happy to see the picture.
Kathy C. came into Focus with a woman who was with her out in front of Planned Parenthood to counsel. It was a nice visit for Martha & Fred. I was in the office working.
Two clients came in & I spoke to one of the woman who said that she will have her Tubes tied, I talked to her & then gave her a brochure to read & take with her. Also, I gave both of the women some important literature to take with them. Education & Prayer will change people's minds.
Tonight we will be standing, in front of Planned Parenthood from 6 pm to 7:30 pm, with the Rosary & candle lights & speakers. A peaceful prayerful event on this horrible day.

Albany lawmakers passed a reproductive health Bill, late yesterday evening, to have more babies be killed by abortion. Now it's up to, just before you're born, that you can have your baby killed. Babies lives mean nothing to some. How sick & how sad!!
I saw that Spectrum News put our group on air at 1 am Wednesday morning. I looked for it at 9 am & it wasn't on. Media is so corrup & liberal.......we deserve better!!!
There was a big group yesterday evening that came to pray the Rosary & to listen to Pastor Walter Hoye speak the truth about abortion. The next door neighbor, right next to Planned Parenthood, called the police because he is pro choice & doesn't like us. The police came & drove down the street but didn't stop, to his dismay, & he probably called the police again & the same police officer stopped to let us know that we had to stand on the sidewalk & not in the bike ride section of the street.....okay, we want to be safe! Thanks neighbor. Then the neighbor next to Jim Martin came out & honked all the way down his driveway & I stood there saying to him from the car window that we loved him & he gave me his finger. It doesn't bother me for maybe someday he won't. Next was a man walking down the street hollering "pro choice" & I said to him "pro death" & repeated once more then I said "you should be ashamed of yourself & he continued to holler as he walked up the street. Poor misguided man. Abortion is seriously killing off the African American Race just like they planned many years ago. Maafa:21 DVD, please get it & watch it, you will learn a lot.
Saw some clients today with the help from Joan & Annette. Lynda went home after dropping off the 25 cans of baby formula for she was not feeling well & is planning to go to Florida tomorrow for a two week vacation. Hope she will feel better to go.
