Showering Love’s Baby Shower

Baby Shower Plans Begin

Some time ago we had the opportunity to throw a surprise baby shower for one of our guests.  We met Bridget when she and her boyfriend, Justin, came to Sunset Presbyterian for a shower.  She confided in us that she was pregnant!!  What wonderful news!  But, unfortunately, she was homeless!  That’s not the way you want to go through a pregnancy and birth of your baby!

Baby Shower for Bridget

So, Showering Love got busy – and boy! Did things change for Bridget!  Jeanne Albaugh, our founder and CEO, knew just where Bridget should go.  She sent her to a facility that specializes in helping women who are pregnant and/or mothers, and homeless and/or addicts.  Jeanne knew that they would take care of Bridget throughout her pregnancy.

Showering Love Helps Out

Bridget was able to live there until after her baby was born.  But she didn’t have all the things that are necessary to care for a newborn baby!  So, Showering Love got busy again!!  Jeanne put out the word on Facebook that we needed baby items – and then the flood began!  It was so heartwarming to see the community come together for the benefit of a young, homeless, pregnant woman and her little unborn baby boy.

Surprise!

Surprise Baby Shower

Bridget was so surprised when she walked into the room and saw all those baby shower gifts!!  It was a sight to behold!  The community came together, bringing gifts to Showering Love for weeks before and even after the shower!!  They provided big things like a car seat, a stroller, a swing. And also clothes, toys and bathing items.  It was amazing!!

To Be Continued……

And finally, Bridget gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy!!  What a blessing!!  And you all, in the community helped make it happen.  Bridget took the steps she needed to in order to begin living a healthy, productive life and continues on her journey back – all with help from Showering Love’s Baby Shower!!
