We can put aside our political differences for a few minutes to help a local family.
...The McGhees knew they would struggle to afford an instant family of eight. He is a carpet- and upholstery-cleaner; she is leaving her job at JPMorgan Chase to care for the babies....
...Mr. McGhee, who is trying to grow his own carpet-cleaning business, said he doesn't like seeking help. But he knows that Rozonno Jr., Isaac, Josiah, Elijah, Madison and Olivia - who likely will begin leaving Ohio State University Medical Center in the next two weeks - don't care about pride.
He said a woman recently asked how his family was adjusting to all the attention. When he said there hadn't been any, "she cried," Mr. McGhee said. "She couldn't believe it."
Can you imagine bringing home six babies and know that you have just a few provisions for them? Do you remember what it was like bringing home just one child? I know these are tough times, but everyone can help a little.
****Here are some suggestions:
** Please contact the newspaper reporter, Rita Price (firstname.lastname@example.org), to find out how you can help this family with needed diapers, clothing, and other necessities.
> Columbus is the home of one of the largest baby formula manufacturers in the country, and I'm sure that they'd like to be able to help with formula for the infants. (Hint.)
> Those right to life people out there should step up because (1) the mother refused to do "selective reduction" when told how many children she was carrying, (2) you should help these babies.
> Knitters, quilters, and grandmas with crochet needles, could all help with some blankets, hats, sweaters, and booties.
> Macy's and local baby stores, and department stores are needed to help fill the gap for this family. How about some gift cards for baby clothing and baby gear?
> Church groups, clubs, Brownies & Girl Scout groups: Wouldn't it be great to have a few bake sales to help provide strollers, car seats, high chairs, diapers, and other necessities for these little ones?
Don't just sit there!!!! Do something to help!
