Folks, it’s the final week of the Loved Baby Shower. Bethany Christian Services sent me an excited email last week saying boxes of baby goodies have been arriving to their main office!
It’s not too late for you to participate. I do pray you’ll consider putting a package in the mail if you haven’t already done so!
WHAT IS THE LOVED BABY SHOWER?
Loved Baby Christian Pregnancy Loss Support & Encouragement group is partnering with Bethany Christian Services–the leading agency for adoption, foster care, and refugee services–to host an online baby shower to bless refugee children in need..
Did you know that many of the refugee children (including those from Syria) and their families have recently been relocated to the United States? Some of these babies are now in foster homes. They’ve lost their homeland and, in many circumstances, their parents.

IF YOU ARE MAKING A DONATION IN HONOR OF A BABY:
Perhaps you are reading this and you haven’t been touched by pregnancy loss or infant death—but you know someone who has. Consider making a donation in honor of this baby. Send a card or make a phone call to the bereaved parents & let them know that you made a Loved Baby Shower donation in memory of their baby.
Many blessings to you all! Thanks for wrapping your arms around these children.
