Love Doing Laundry

What? You don’t like doing laundry?

Every new parent getting ready for their first child buys clothing and then washes it all to prepare for the big event. Some of the outfits look so tiny and one knows their child will outgrow them far too quickly. The clothes always smell so good coming out of the dryer, and parents look at the outfits and just imagine holding their new child.

Well, that’s what I got to do today – four loads of new clothes for our babies at the Anhui Cleft Healing Home. We are down to the final stages of preparation, and very soon seven tiny babies with cleft will be moved to our home in Hefei.

The clothes I washed were gifts from a Baby Shower held by Abiding Presence Lutheran Church in Burke VA. We HOPE the babies will outgrow the clothes quickly because that will mean we are doing our job. But we know they will get lots of use. All of the clothes are precious, but here are two of my favorites!

This should be our slogan! We know all of the babies coming to the home are fighters who think big.

Look for this shirt on a Christmas gift card next year!

Now if I only could get this excited from my own children’s dirty laundry…
