Tomorrow I ship out my first two boxes of donated breast milk, over two hundred ounces.
When it arrives safely, it will be tested, processed, and pasturized. It will be proven safe. And then my body will help nourish a child who's mother could not. My body will help a premature baby live. My body will touch the lives of others.
I hope that when a worried mama watching her baby eat and grow and thrive my milk, that she knows it was given with love. I would hope someone would do the same for my own children.
As we near Mothers Day, I pray the gift from my body will ease the grief and worry in anothers.
I only wish I could do more.
