Volunteer Spotlight – Ms. Pat

Pat Lechleiter is a special woman!

Pat sews beautiful handmade quilts for our birth mothers and adoptive families. Each one is unique and embroidered with the verse from Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord; plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.”

At New Life, we love the women we get to work with. One of the many ways we show that love is providing them with a beautiful quilt they can use for the remainder of their pregnancy. At the birth, they are encouraged to bring the quilt to the hospital and gift it to the adoptive family to use for the baby. Many times the baby is comforted by the birth mother’s smell from the quilt, and the birth mother is comforted in knowing such a precious gift will stay with her child over the years.

Thank you Pat for the precious gift you give to each and every birth mother and adoptive family! Thank you for partnering with us to show Christ’s love to those in our community!
