All I have to say is AMAZING!

We decided to go back to Pinky’s to set up. So, we got the van all packed and ready to go. On our way to Manderson, we saw a person walking along the road. We passed her and realized it was a lady carrying diapers, so we slammed on the brakes and kicked it in reverse. We picked her up and she told us that someone dropped her off to at Sharps Corner (gas station). When we picked her up, she had been walking for over 2 hours. Our drive to Manderson was still another 20+ minutes. She would of not made it to her house until dark, if no one picked her up. Just to think that she had to do that for her child, just broke my heart. If any of us needed diapers for our baby’s, then we would just get in our car and have them in 10 minutes top. 

When we dropped her off we gave her more diapers and other baby supplies. So, she didnt have to go back to Sharps Corner for a while. When we were at Maddie’s house, another family came out. Jess approached them and asked if they needed anything. They had a newborn and another little one. So, we gave them clothes, new car seat, clothes, diapers, soap, and lotion. They were very grateful!.It just made me want to cry! I ended up buying a bracelet from Maddie, so I will always remember this special day! 

TO BE CONTINUED!!!! We got to get going to another block party!

Love Always!
