I have talked briefly before on my experiences in being a young single mom. But, I have never really put much out there over fear of the internet. But, today this post – this cause, is very personal to me.

Help Wipe Out the Diaper Need
When Livia was born I was a single young mom and poor. Beyond poor. We lived off of $600 a month. Life was a game of which bill absolutely needed to be paid that month to prevent cut off. There were many weeks that Ramen was out of budget.

And diapers? I wasn’t able to afford diapers until Livia was into Pre-K (she didn’t potty train until she was 5).

This is part of the reason that I love the Huggies brand. When I couldn’t find more time in my day to work harder to provide, they stepped in and helped through a program run at a local food bank. A program that allowed me to “volunteer” with my daughter around my school hours. A couple years ago that program ran out of funds. It was an amazing program. There are still program addressing the diaper need, helping parents all around the country.

And as I write that I feel like I need to defend the fact that at that stage of my life I needed help. Guilt and perceived judgement tells me I didn’t do enough. But between school, my part time job, and having a special needs child in extensive therapy I was doing all that I could…and you see that? I couldn’t not defend myself to you, even though the odds of me ever knowing you are slim. Amazing how much shame comes with poverty.
