Please help us welcome Adiba’s Baby Girl into the world. We are volunteers, gathering baby items to help this refugee mother prepare for her new baby, and we’ve made it easy for you to help. Just go to Adiba’s baby registry at Target, checkout online by May 18, select “deliver to Adiba’s address” and we will get it, wrap it, and deliver it in time for the baby shower.

The mother-to-be is Adiba, a bright-spirited, funny woman from the Middle East who arrived here two and a half years ago with her husband, two small kids and nothing else. Forced to seek refuge for political reasons, Adiba manages to maintain a great sense of humor, having started over in her new home and learned a new language, all while caring for her young family. She dreams of attending college here and becoming a nurse. This little girl will be their third child, but the first in the United States. They have no baby items, so anything helps!
We are also grateful for any gently used baby items. Leave your item on my front porch by May 18 and we will take it from there. PM me for my address.
Thank you for participating! The Gateway of Grace is the largest refugee outreach program in North Texas. Gateway helps refugees start over, many of them survivors of severe trauma, with donated furniture, pocket money, groceries, baby showers, job assistance, language lessons, and more. Most important, perhaps, Gateway trains volunteers and churches to adopt refugee families, the point where friendships form and assimilation begins.
