Thinking of all the new families out there that don’t have their family around them. You could be isolated from your family because of the COVID restrictions, maybe you are a refugee having had to flee from you home country or perhaps you are an immigrate (like my grandmother in the photo).
Having a new baby is a stressful time in peoples lives. If you have a neighbour, friend, family or work friend in this challenging life period reach out a hand to them, particularly if they don’t have their own family. Make a batch of bikkies, cook a meal, pick some flowers from your garden any small gesture can make a huge difference. Remembering is does take a village to raise a child, the more of us that help the better our society is.
