We also need baby clothes and other baby things. We know that we need at least 1 crib. Maybe we can find someone whose kids are older but saved the cribs they used when their kids were babies. I am working on that but the more hands we get on this the more we can do this. My church also has a ministry called the mothers room. They give away things babies need. Working on that angle as well as my energy, exhaustion, and nauseious stomack allows me.

Anyway we can do this. I live only a few blocks away from the apt complex and knew a family that lived there. It's time to rally around these people.
