My daughter is 8 months pregnant shes 22. Everything was going well. We were all excited about the new baby. Its a boy, Brantley. Well now the dad has left my daughter and she all alone in this. I am going threw a hard time myself with a recent divorce. I help when I can but its not enough. Brantley is due soon. And we have hardly anything for his arrival. Example 3 blankets, and very few clothing items. Anything would be a help. I am so stressed dealing with all of this and helping her threw a broken heart is just too much. I can barely sleep worrying about my daughter and grandson. Please help!

PROM AND TEENS
Being a single parent is especially hard at prom time. When my daughter graduated , there was a dress , transportation issues ( we didn't have a car) , flowers , restaurant bill , and more. Guess what ? No money . A very special person payed for some of this . The dress we got was from a church 'prom program'. They had a special closet with dresses , and we picked one for free ! Following is a link to more programs like the one that helped us. Thank you for yet another GREAT link Elaine from TSA ! ! ! ( PS They have tuxedos too.)
IN GENERAL :
Try Craigslist , a great source for all kinds of needs , wants , dreams and desires . Hint: find a listing in your area , then click on "free" listed under "For Sale"
Also try http://www.freecycle.org/ , an organization that I am personally familiar with . Freecycle people share more than clothes . Yes they do share clothing , but in my group , also formula , baby food , food in general , furniture, books , dishes , cameras , computer accessories , and so so much more ! Check it out !
