What the men of Circle of Hope are saying:"This night always gets to me. It's just so great to get to meet the couples who benefit from my monthly gift. I just love being able to shake his hand and see my wife hug her and tell them both we are praying for them and we are so happy they were able to choose life for their child. It's a great night for this burly, big guy! Thank you for letting us be a part of it!" J.F. (banquet attendee 2019)
"I was once in his shoes. I had no one to guide me and no one to speak into my life. I don't often forget that I ended my first child's life through abortion. Thank you, Hand of Hope, for allowing me to do everything I can to make sure other dads don't make the same wrong choice that I made. It's an honor to stand beside you in this fight." A Grateful Dad (banquet attendee 2020)
