Where do we begin, at the beginning
Thank you for visiting my new blog site, so let me tell you what it's all about.
Lately, I've had this yearning to "go big" in doing something for someone else with my greatest inspiration being my daughter(pictured). I prayed about it, and lo and behold, this idea came to me in a dream. Why not collect baby clothes for the women of Haiti?!? Brillant.
Since my husband is from there and we are now parents, I had been paying more attention to their issues and have much sympathy. Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, and just recently got ravished by hurricanes. The people have next to nothing. My idea was to simply collect baby clothes and products and send it to the new moms. I now know first hand how tough it is as a mom when you “have”, so I can’t imagine those who don’t. I know those women would be so grateful.
So my plan is to just pool together the resources I already have sorors, line sisters, nursing moms group at the hospital, Mocha Moms, the church, etc. I didn't want to reinvent the wheel, so I found something that already existed to donate to them. A special thanks to Marie Arnode Thelemaque for getting me the information. And now here we are.
