God is doing amazing things with this cloth diapering project. A month ago when I was thinking up all of this I never would have imagined it to become what it has and for all of the details to work themselves out! I told Adam before I started that I wanted to get enough diapers to give to 25 babies! I am getting enough diapers to diaper hundreds of babies!!!!! We still NEED your help!!!
There is this blog that I follow from time to time. She and her husband are in Ethiopia right now for their first visit. They were at Hannah's Hope (AGCI's transition home)...This is what she wrote in her post...
"Hannah's Hope needs cloth diapers!!! They are literally rinsing out disposable diapers and hanging them out to dry! Today Addison had one such diaper on. It only had one tab remaining. They had placed a cloth diaper ( the decorative kind like we use as burp cloths) inside of the reused diaper. Of course we had brought them all of those donations, but guess they know that they have to ration them out with over 30 babies in diapers" http://betsyandtheboys.blogspot.com/
WOW! I had no idea that diapers were even in such great need at our agencies transition home! This is where a lot of these diapers that I am getting donated are now going to go!
Think about this...If your child is at Hannah's Hope, is going to be at Hannah's hope, or even if your child is at another orphanage/transition home can you just close your eyes right now and imagine your child in this situation...
I told my husband tonight that if we were there to get Zek and this was the situation I would take him and stay in Ethiopia until the embassy appointment. There is no way that I would want to leave my child where there weren't any clean diapers! The special mothers there are doing the best they can with what they've got, I know. The special mothers are awesome individuals and really take loving care of these babies. The diaper situation just makes me sad.
God placed this diaper ministry on my heart and he is finding donations for me and finding me lots of places to send them!
When I heard I was getting 1400 pocket diaper shells donated amongst all of the other donations that are coming in I had no clue where all of them were going to go. Then Kristi posted about her agency being in need of diapers and now I hear news of Hannah's Hope being in such great need. And the many orphanages Adam will be helping at during his mission trip that are in such great need and the government orphanage that Zek was at before going to Hannah's Hope. We are going to get lots of babies lots of diapers!!!!!
I still have to have your help! I need prefold diapers, flat diapers, or microfiber inserts for these pocket diapers! Please let me know if you have any of these to donate. Even if its a small amount! Anything helps. If you don't have any diapers but want to donate for us to buy some please click donate on my sidebar of my blog. Remember anything helps! WE NEED to get these diapers to these babies in Ethiopia!!!!! If you have covers/wraps we need those too!!!!!
This ministry is going to be ongoing so remember whatever cannot be sent over at this moment will get sent over. There are always lots of families traveling and people going on mission trips so we will always find way to take babies some diapers!
