Becoming a mother is scary enough as we all know to well. You wonder am I going to be a good mother? Am I going to know what to do when they cry? How am I going to handle the sleepless nights everyone guarantees me I will have? However many mothers are facing a scarier question. How am I going to provide for the little human I already am completely in love with?
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap…” Luke 6:38
THE DIFFERENCE YOU WILL MAKE
I am sure these homeless mothers in Indianapolis are already experiencing the sleepless nights thinking of the challenges they have in front of them. However you have an opportunity to give more than just baby essentials you have the chance to deliver a Christmas miracle. Homeless mothers that benefit from this baby shower will have a chance to be excited for the arrival of their bundle of joy knowing that they have what they need to care for their little one.
HOW TO GIVE.
Donors can visit the baby shower HERE to shop online for a baby essential gift to be provided to a homeless pregnant mother through local nonprofits The Julian Center, DaySpring Center and Building Families for Children. The Baby shower is ending on January 5, 2014.
WHAT ARE THE STATISTICS?
The shower, planned annually, occurs during winter when the homeless are most vulnerable. “The statistics about homelessness in women and children are startling,” said Keianna Rae Harrison, from Mompreneur Ink. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists indicate that women and families are the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, with women and children making up about a third of that population. “It’s heart-breaking to know that babies are born with no place to call home.” According to the National Institute of Health, pregnancy rates among women in the U.S. who are homeless are much higher than rates among women who are housed.
