To Feed And Diaper Babies

Everyday in Oklahoma 138 babies are born. And of those 138 babies, at least 30 will go to bed hungry. I learned that at the Infant Crisis Services in Oklahoma City the other day as I toured the city.  I was moved when the director said, “Our mission is simple:  To feed and diaper babies.” I don’t think I’ve every heard of a more profound, or more direct, mission statement. With such sad statistics you’d think the staff of this incredible charity would be weary, burdened, sad.  But they weren’t.  Their eyes were filled with unspeakable joy and their hearts were more than excited at how they were helping babies. They have volunteer opportunities that I can’t wait to get involved in.  Just think…serving here with my sons. Could there be a better classroom?
