Diapers Bring U.S. Mom to Tears

Changing a baby’s diaper sometimes involves tears – usually from the little one who doesn’t want their tushie wiped.

In the work we do, however, it’s not uncommon that a clean diaper would bring tears of joy to a parent’s eyes.

For example, one mom who benefitted from our national Direct Aid loan program let us know how the donation transformed her diaper changing experience.

“You sent use diapers a few weeks ago,” she said. “ I was in shock at the box and then in tears seeing inside. Every time I change my daughter, I feel so much love knowing so many people cared enough to help me put clean, comfortable diapers on my daughter. Even my older children love the diapers. Such cute and beautiful colors.”

With these cloth diapers in hand, she and her family were able to participate in a birthday party that was otherwise out of reach.

“I was able to attend a birthday party that weekend that I would have had to miss since I didn’t have enough diapers to go that long away from home,” she said.

We hope everyone had a great time, and we can’t say enough thanks to the supporters who helped this family in need.
