I want to share a very special story with you. Today I was delivering a supply of “Our Babies” packs to Maternity services. It’s always amazing doing this but today was super special as I got to personally deliver one of the packs for the first time to a young family with a new and precious baby.
Meet little Promise. Just one day old. Her parents were grateful and humbled by the gift. The mother read the message on the front “a gift for your baby from a community that cares” “hold me.love me.nurture me”.
We talked about the merino wrap and how useful it would be and how great natural fibres are. Mum was keen to know about the merino wrap and I explained how she could use it in different ways. The family did not have any woollen items so these packs mean a lot to them.
Proud Daddy cradled his daughter as we chatted.
I felt so privileged to be able to present this pack to this family. Knowing they needed it and that they appreciated it.❤️ As I looked at this precious little baby with such an appropriate name …I hoped that I can “promise” to carry on this initiative and help every baby like her. What a precious moment that solidifies what I do every day and why I strive to make things better for those who need a helping hand… and why you all see my pleas for help raising funds for more merino …because days like this make it all worth it.
Thanks, beautiful family and I will never forget you sweet little Promise. ( photos published with permission gained) xxx Gabby
