VOA Today: 200 Healthy Freedom House Babies

200 is a number worth celebrating -- On July 24, Veronica, who is recovering from substance use disorder in our Freedom House program, gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Julian. Julian is also the 200th healthy baby born at Freedom House. Julian joins two older siblings. Veronica can't wait for her entire family to be reunited upon her graduation from Freedom House. Veronica said that she enjoyed her time at Freedom House and that she plans to come back and visit often to see the staff who made her experience so great. "Coming here was the best decision I ever made," said Veronica.

We are so excited to celebrate this milestone, all of the healthy babies and women who have graduated from Freedom House, and the staff who work so hard to  help them achieve sobriety and lead healthy lives. We can't wait to deliver even more healthy babies in the future.
