  1. My wife and I had a great experience when we visited the Shrine in early Feb., 2020.We discovered the Shrine by accident but we had recently met a young couple at a wedding in Ft. Lauderdale who told us how depressed she was because she had 3 or 4 miscarriages . She was so afraid they would never have a child. When we got back to Phila. we were so excited to send her somethings we bought at the Shrine, a beautiful necklace, a candle and a lovely prayer card . She wrote us a beautiful letter telling us how grateful she was and how it inspired her . The best part of the story is that she recently sent us a letter telling us she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl .I now carry Our Lady of LaLeche prayer cards with me and love to share them when I meet someone who is having the same problem or is expecting a baby. My wife and I had a life changing experience when we visited the Shrine, we are very grateful we discovered the Shrine.
