A new baby is the beginning of all things- wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. Eda J. Le Shan
We have two new baby boys to love on here in my family, both born within the span of 8 weeks.
Jonah (above) and Keaton (Below) Needless to say, I am completely head over heels...
And, as if things couldn't get any better than this, I will be in total Gramma heaven next week, when the two out-of-town grandbabes arrive for a visit with the cousins, and we have all six of them together!
Now, speaking of babies....A friend at works daughter emailed me this weekend.(did you follow that? I work with a gal...who has a daughter...and that daughter contacted me...) about a friend of hers (Still with me?) named Katlin.
Feeling extra blessed in the baby department around here, I could not help but feel more than a little compelled to share her story here, and hopefully spread the word of the good work they are doing.
Kaitlin founded a very cool non profit called "Haiti Babi" after making
several visits to Haiti. She learned that many children were living in
orphanages not because they didn’t have parents, but because their parents
simply could not afford to care for them. Katlin knew that something could be
done to keep families together. (To read more about Haiti Babi’s story click here).
Haiti Babi’s mission is to give mom’s jobs. The
non-profit “trains, equips, and inspires Haitian mothers to knit high-quality
artisan baby goods in order to earn an income, and care for their families”. Moms
in the U.S. have the opportunity to purchase these products in support of the Haitian
mothers. “Moms helping moms.”
I know. Way cool concept, huh?
They just launched a fabulous online event to build awareness and excitement for Haiti Babi and I just had to share it with you all!

to the thank you cards, Haiti Babi is giving you everything you need to throw a
