this is SO overdue....
I wanted to share with you that our friend HolaMom is the winner of the Pampers $500 giveaway to help with her little miracle expenses.
It was so hard to choose because all were such perfect entries.
"Marcela and Pampers thanks for this giveaway! My baby is a miracle baby for many reasons, here is our story: After a year of trying to get pregnant I had given up hope on having another child. I assumed that if it wasn’t happening naturally, I wasn’t going to force it (meaning going to fertility treatments etc) I thought there was a reason why I shouldn’t have more kids and I was at peace with the idea of having only one child.
We got pregnant unexpectedly and were so excited!! I knew this baby was supposed to teach us something and it didn’t take us long to find out what. Financial trouble got only worse, my husband and I work on contract basis with a couple of entities (county based) in LA and of course budget cuts affected us tremendously! A big contract that was potentially going to help us stay afloat didn't happened and as up to date we’re pretty much done for the year with our other contracts without any hopes of renewing any of them. This little life inside of me is giving me the strength to face every day with hope of a brighter future, he or she (as we are not finding out the gender) has taught me that asking for help is not a bad thing. Asking for help has been a learning process that has given me back the faith in humankind and it also has reminded me that Dios aprieta pero no ahorca!"
I also want to share that this lovely lady is an extended breastfeeder as I am. She breastfed her first for 3 years and 10 months and through our emails I found out that she will be giving birth to this new little one at home. She new I would love this... I do!
I can't wait to hear her homebirth story...maybe she might be up for sharing it here with all of us!?!?
Congrats to you!! A thank you to all the entrants and all the lovely people that took the time to read all the beautiful stories.
A special thanks to Pampers. I would love it if you took the time to like Pampers Latino on Facebook! They are making miracles happen... and are such sweet people.
The mom that will be honored with a very special baby shower by Pampers will be seen on Todo Bebé in November and I will be sure to give you all the details when the time gets closer so our online community can support her!
