I am looking to help a single mother to be...
To introduce myself - I am new as of yesterday: I live in Colorado, and have a 19 month old son as a first time Mom in my 40's. An acquaintance was asking for help for a single mom, having a baby boy in 5 weeks and doesn't have really anything yet. Turns out that the single mom is her daughter and has spent most of the past year homeless. Grandma is currently unemployed and can't be very much help right now.
I was so blessed with all the baby stuff needed to make a new mom feel secure. I just can't imagine what it would be like to have nothing this close to the due date, and no one to really help out. I feel like I am called to help. My daycare is going to allow me to post a notice for donations, and asking for friends help that I handed down some of our newborn - 9 month to.
I may not have much, but I think I can help her as much as I can. Power of one and all that! I feel like there is a lot of assistance out there for single moms. If anyone has any ideas or advice, I would love to hear from you! If you live in Southern Colorado and would like to help, let me know!
