“The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service and the fruit of service is peace.” Mother Teresa of Calcutta  
We Are Expanding!
Indeed, prayer, faith, love, and service are daily testimonies at Mater Filius Dallas. These fruits have made possible to advance our plans for expansion, and soon our house will have additional 700 sq. Ft. of living space!
This much-needed area will provide the mothers and babies residing at the house with a multipurpose room for work and parental workshops, early childhood stimulation, and community sharing.
Architect Laura Vargas-Baiamonte , the project leader, has dedicated many hours designing, planning, and envisioning the North Wing at Mater Filius, and finally, construction will begin in a couple of weeks!
Proceeds from the 2017 Sips for Life Ladies Afternoon Tea , and a substantial contribution from two generous donors have made possible the realization of this project.
We could not have come so far without the many supporters that believe in our cause. Thank you!

First Year Milestones
We are so blessed to see our first babies grow with so much love and care!
Dorian's First Birthday - January 14, 2018
Daniel's First Birthday - May 15, 2018
Love is Stronger and the Home is Happier
Our family is also expanding. We are expecting two new babies this summer!
Jennifer's baby is due July 15, and Natacha's baby is due August 20. 
Let's pray for their wellness and a future full of health and love.
Babies come with needs, and one of the main ones at the house is to provide car-seats and strollers. We found that the most convenient ones are the travel system where you can place the car-seat on the stroller base. Samples
