Still, it never ceases to amaze me how much support and love you can get from your internet buddies.
This weekend, another Nestie passed away just a few hours after she gave birth to her first child. Although she was not part of our board and none of us knew her, it still feels like a punch in the stomach - like losing one of our own.
Her Nest friends have set up a PO Box to collect donations to help the family out:
Gabrielle is doing well and will be released from the NICU this week.
Jewelyn's husband, Philip, is going to need all the help he can get over the coming months and years.
A PO Box has been set up to receive formula checks and diaper coupons. Any and all brands will be accepted, and whatever Philip doesn't use will be donated to the Liz Logelin Foundation.
Formula checks and diaper coupons can be sent to:
Jewelyn Okamoto Memorial Fund
PO Box 235971
Encinitas, CA 92023-5971
Most of all, this family needs your thoughts and prayers - please keep them in mind in the upcoming weeks... they're sure to be rough.
