In deciding what “Hot Topic” to write about today, the only thing that I couldn’t get out of my mind is the desperate situation happening to all the mommies and babies in Somalia. Yes, the men too, but since this is a mommy site, they are the ones I really relate to.

We all know what it feels like when our child is ill, now imagine your child actually dying from you not being able to feed them or even give them a drink of water! I can’t imagine the horrible guilt any mom would feel along with feeling completely helpless.I have decided to post places where we, here in the U.S. can donate. These are really easy way to do this and won’t break the bank with most of us. Please help the suffering mommies and babies as much as you can.  Also, a reminder to be grateful for all we have!
