This is a very touching story. I believe that the assitance that St. Anne provides to these teenage mothers will ensure that they and their children have bright futures. However, I question the type of couseling they provide to these young mothers when it comes to teaching their children about values. I could not help but notice the LARGE diamond earring that was on one of the children's left ear. What type of moral values are they teaching this child - one based excess and being materialistic?
