Wishlist #2 – Baby Londynne

We met Sarah, age 24, and her new daughter, Londynne Jade (born July 11) through the Common Pantry.  Sarah is slowly recovering from her c-section surgery while she is adjusting to life as a new, single mom.   Prior to giving birth, Sarah was a waitress at a restaurant which does not offer maternity leave. Her family strongly encouraged adoption and was not very supportive of Sarah’s choice.  Sarah and Londynne are currently staying with a relative, sleeping on a couch.

Sarah is facing some very difficult and uncertain times as she lacks the most basic essentials to provide for her new daughter. We are working in tandem with the Pantry to help Sarah get back on her feet as her needs and Baby Londynne’s needs are plentiful. We are seeking donations of the following items:

*Baby Boppy Nursing Pillow

*Baby Carrier/Wrap

*Bath Products

*Bibs

*Blankets

*Board Books

*Car Seat

*Clothing  – Winter 3-6 months and 6-12 months

*Crib Mobile

*Diapers – size 2 and 3

*Exersaucer or Jumparoo

*First Aid Kit and Thermometer

*Infant Toys

*Lullabye CDs

*Pack ‘N Play Crib and Sheets

*Wipes

A message from Sarah:

“Thank you for thinking of my baby Londynne and I during our hardship. All your help is greatly appreciated in this time of need from us. It is good to know there is still hope out there even at your worst times of desperation. All of your kindness and help is not taken for granted.  Thank you again.”

We are collecting items for Baby Londynne through September 18, 2011.  If you wish to donate any of these items, please contact us.  Thank you!
