By Lidia Wasowicz – Catholic San Francisco

A teen whose baby united a family that had pressed her  to  abort him,  a  young woman whose toddler returned  home from foster care just in time for Christmas, an  aban- doned new mom whose infant opened the door to a loving friendship – all believe the Gabriel Project “angels” who took them under their wing can work miracles.
