Dear Friend of the Life Centers,

In my celebratory excitement after our inspection yesterday I sent out an unfinished message, laden with typos.  Now that I have calmed down let me attempt to coherently convey my heartfelt thanks to you for all your support and prayers as we went through the conversion into a medical clinic.

Just before inspection, we put our effort in the hands of God.  We offered it up to Him, knowing we have done our best.  We pleaded for His favor and for a successful outcome. I know we were joined in prayer by so many people of diverse denominations. We were united in our belief that all human life is sacred. Our prayers were answered.  We were granted our medical clinic license following the inspection by the CA. Dept. of Public Health. I am pleased to report that we passed with "No deficiencies" and so we know that all the hard work and preparation was worth it.

I want to thank the Life Centers board for their vision and perseverance. I thank the many individuals  and groups who supported us from the beginning.  Thank you to Dr. Timothy McNicoll, Dr. Keith Shonnard and Dr. Eric Wallace for their medical expertise. Thank you Susan Jones, R.N. and Amy Schuberg, R.N. and staff members for representing the Life Centers so professionally and  for the meticulous preparation and planning. Next week Susan can begin scanning with our beautiful new ultrasound machine which the Knights of Columbus provided for us.  God is so good to bless us with such help!

While we are immensely grateful for all of our staff, past and present, today cannot pass without acknowledging the efforts of two of our previous Executive Directors, Lisa Gelinas and Emily Raab.  Both served us at times of great need. Lisa helped find and move us into this beautiful, new office and Emily poured herself into the minute details and requirements of licensing and office organization.  We couldn't have done it without them. We are so grateful to these wonderful women. Please remember to keep Emily in your prayers as she continues to recuperate from a motorcycle accident.

Thank you again for the support you have given the Life Centers over the years, especially for your support of this conversion to a medical clinic. Technology is on our side and ultrasounds are an amazing tool in educating women about their pregnancies. It is education which can change minds and hearts. It is education that can save lives.

God bless you always,
Michele Loughman​
Executive Director
