“When I think of St Mary’s Center, I think of the process of growing a beautiful flower. You need a pot, soil, a seed, water, and sunlight. St. Mary’s Center is the pot, and I’m the seed…
Today, I have blossomed into a strong, independent Mother. Without my flower pot, my soil, my water, and my Sun that is St. Mary’s Center— my own growing process would have been rough, but instead I have grown. I only wish that others can blossom as beautifully as me. I’m confident that with the wisdom I took with me shall forever shine inside my heart, and I thank St Mary’s Center for taking the time to care for a seed like me.”
