The First Christmas Family with Michelle Fletcher
A long journey will often start a new life in another place. And that’s what happened to Mary and Joseph. We make it sound as pretty as a picture, every Christmas. But it wasn’t all snow and starry skies for the young couple.
Hear about the scope of their problems in this eye-opening interview about the first Christmas family, from a social worker’s perspective:
- Teenage mother
- Long trip overland during 3rd trimester
- No home
- No food
- Inexperienced parents
- No extended family to help
- Unsavoury birthing place
- And more!
