Friday – getting help

Filed under: Uncategorized — by jeannette4175 @ 9:20 pm

I am very slow at writing on my blog. If anyone is still reading I will continue my story. If no one reads then that is okay too. I want this documented.

Friday the 21st was crazy busy. My Facebook was blowing up with help. I got so many private messages. I was arranging pick ups of a lot of baby items. After I got off of work and picked up my kids from school I went to as friends house. She has an eleven month old baby boy. She gave me about 4 paper bag of baby items. Some were new that she just bought because she realized there as a mom in need. Some items her son no longer used so she was giving those to me. After getting the items I went to my sister in-laws and we went on a baby item shopping spree at target. I had money donated through both paypal and friends so I wanted to get K some extra items. We bought everything from clothes, diapers, to a stroller.

I finally got home close to 8pm that night. I didn’t sleep well even though I was exhausted. I was too excited by what was going on. I still had to go the next day and get more items from friends before meeting up with K the next day. I could not believe the number of people willing to help out a mother, someone they had not met. It was crazy to think that me, little old me was involved with this. I was helping a mom to keep her son. I was helping a mom to keep her children together. I am really involved with a group of people who do more than talk. I am involved with women that will help others. We are from different faiths, some believe in God, some are atheist, some conservative, some liberal. None of those thing matters. Adoption has affected all of us and we are coming together to help the next generation. We are preserving families. We are an army of love.

  2. No matter our backgrounds, we all have common ground – to prevent the lifetime grief of another mother and provide her to the best of our ability with all the support she could hope for. Besides, isn’t that what ‘the village’ is all about? So happy to have connected with you lady. We will make change, even if it is only one baby at a time…..(hugs)
