Please help me to contribute 100 copies of my memoir "How to love with a healing heart" this Mothers' Day to Care for Families.

Waitakere, Auckland

I am a mama to two beautiful children who were both born premature. Both times we received beautiful care packages from Care for Families - filled with goodies for our baby and for us. Both times it hasn't been just about the gift but the feeling of being supported at such a time as this. Being a SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) parent evokes feelings that are hard to describe, I experienced 100 emotions in a day - overjoyed, torn and heartbroken hearing bad news or seeing my baby connected to all sorts of med tech, going home each day without them and hoping we were next on the "going home" list ...

Please help me to contribute 100 copies of my memoir "How to love with a healing heart" to Care for Families this Mothers' Day. These will be inserted into care packages for families going through difficult situations, many with their babies in neonatal care.

Covering such topics as faith, getting married, antenatal blues, becoming a mother and premature birth, my book is an uplifting and encouraging read for women, especially mothers; a true story told woman-to-woman, heart-to-heart.

Your donation will cover printing costs and the 5% fee charged by Givealittle.

Donations of any amount gratefully accepted. If you donate >NZ$45, email me your address (NZ/worldwide) and I will post you a copy! Happy to gift on your behalf too.
