To recap: Pat in IL got this ball rolling when a Navy Ombudsman asked if any Navy moms could help a Navy wife in western NC who is expecting a baby on July 4th. We will PM you the expectant mom's address upon request.
Update on Monday 4/30:
Quote from our expectant mom - "You have no idea how much this means to me! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!"
She lives about an hour and a half from any military resources. Also she has two other little girls. She is an ex-Marine. She is a very nice young woman and a pleasure to talk to. She asked Pat, "Why did you all think to do this?" Pat told her, "Beause we are all Navy Family."
Ladies, I want you to know that you are making a difference in this young woman's life! NAVY MOMS ROCK!!!!!
I thought about gifts for the sisters also so they wouldn't feel left out. Does anyone know approx ages of sisters? Or names so we could tag their gifts.
Have learned that the girls are 10; six going on seven; and four turning five and starting kindergarten in July.
I'll mail the week of the 21st
any week is fine with me
I will send a gift in Aug anyone know about the daddy needing support too? care package ?
AbbyBlue - Great idea to send a care package to dad and his shipmates. I am sending my package out this week. I will include a note for M to see if she is comfortable sending me his address. I will let you know what she says.
