Swine Flu in Marin Upstages Homeless Single Mom

This in from Tangobaby:  San Francisco ABC affiliate KGO 7 was slated to air Mama K’s story tonight on the 6 O’clock news. Unfortunately, the swine flu in Marin County upstaged her story. Please keep Mama K in your thoughts tonight and remember that it takes a village to raise a child.

Hopefully, her story will air tomorrow night, Wednesday, April 29, 2009, at 6pm on ABC channel 7 news. Please tune in or set the DVR. The segment should be able to stream after it airs.

We’ve been in contact with Tangobaby asking if we can help Kelaya with essential supplies she may need for 2 month old Baby M. The good news is that she now has a refrigerator  (donated by an East Bay blogger) to store breastmilk in her motel room. Can you imagine, being homeless with 2 older children and a 2 month old baby?

What is unique about Mama K’s story is that a perfect stranger, Tangobaby, decided to take it upon herself to help this mother of three on the streets. She passed her on the streets, and then turned back around to help. How many of us can say that we would do that?

Thank you, Tangobaby. You are our hero.

  1. This is why I made friends with Julie (via blogging.) I have been in Julie’s shoes a time or two before. I was captured by Julie and Kelaya’s chance meeting. Most recently, I met a family in Clayton, CA who were without a home. My little friend is Katie Grace Groebner, a 6-year old living with a fatal disease, pulmonary hypertension, eventually requiring a heart/lung transplant. When I first met sweet Katie Grace, the family had just arrived to Clayton, having relocated from Minnesota to be closer to Stanford Hospital. Our local papers have written Katie Grace’s story. I have passed a perfect stranger and felt compelled to help in some small way. People need to reach out to others, sometimes in big ways! Thank God for Julie, and bless the little children.
