Laulima: Family struggles to care for farm and toddler with baby on the way


A giving and compassionate family is in need of some compassion of their own this holiday season.

They’re trying to make ends meet on their farm, but it’s tough with a toddler and a baby on the way.

Mom, dad and their 10-month-old live on a homestead agricultural farm lot. Mom was the only one in her family to take over her grandfather’s farm when he passed. She is pregnant, so it’s up to dad to work the farm on his own.

Mom regularly takes her daughter to a free non-profit early childhood education program. We’re told that mom is humble, compassionate and a positive role model for her daughter and those around her.

Their referring professional calls their giving spirit a blessing, and would love to see them receive warmth and compassion in return.

Mom could use nursing tops (XL) and a gas card, and many baby things, from a play pen to diapers (size n-1-2), to clothing (n and 12-18 mo), to sippy cups and bowls, plus a forward-facing car seat and a double stroller.

Their 10-month-old enjoys playing musical instruments, books, balls, and walking toys.

In the spirit of Laulima, all our hands working together, we can give this family a warm and bright holiday season.
