We haven’t bought anything for Baby Deng yet because people have been giving us most of the things we need. My landlord gave us a baby crib, we’ve had a mountain of baby clothes given to us, a baby saddle and toys.
Other than marking down some needed items we will get around to buying soon, we decided not to rush to get too many things just yet. It helps to have friends and other folks having kids earlier than us. We’ve been able to take advantage of their pre-loved belongings, experience, wisdom and mistakes!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. We’re increasingly glad for friends, family and being attached to a large Christian community, all who have really made such a difference to us in their love and support. ❤
