KNWC/Sioux Falls (Life 96.5) listeners donated hundreds of new baby items valuing thousands of dollars to help fill the Baby Boutique for young moms choosing life for their unborn babies. The Baby Botique is located at the Alpha Center in Sioux Falls. Thanks to local business partners Lewis Drug Stores and AMaVo Women’s Apparel and Lifestyle, over 1,300 beautiful new baby necessities will be filling the shelves and making a difference locally for women cared for by the Alpha Center staff. Among the blessings received are 167 packages of diapers, 117 packages of baby wipes, 110 onesies, 103 blankets, and several larger items like strollers, pack-n-plays, a crib, and a changing table.
Many gave gifts out of their joy, but others through their pain. Jennifer, who experienced devastating loss and suffering through multiple miscarriages, chose to give items she longed to buy for a child of her own. She said, “Although my children in heaven still outnumber those with us on earth, we recently celebrated the birth of our second child and give praise for all God’s gifts in our lives.”
