A new year is upon us and we know you're probably thinking that it feels like just yesterday we were ringing in 2013. With yet another year under our belts, it's time to start planning ahead for all that is to come in 2014. The challenges, the triumphs, and most of all, the memories, are ones we take with us to help guide us on our journey to a new beginning.
For most of you, we know a new year may mean a new baby or growing little ones. As you begin to prepare yourselves and your family for the changes that are certain to occur, rest assured that with change comes unforgettable moments and ones that will be cherished forever. After all, as we look back on 2013, we can't help but share five of our most life changing moments that we always hold dear to our hearts.
1. Meet Our Sponsored Child
Through Be Free Revolution, we sponsor Natasha, a child who lives in a slum outside of Noaribi, Kenya. Our donation provides her with life's necessities and basic supplies as well as a mentor to serve as a stable role model and help guide her through all of life's challenges.

2. Giving Back Locally
We learned of one of our expecting mommies who was without her husband during the holidays due to his service in the U.S. military, which led him overseas. Moved by her testimony, we felt the need to bless her and her family with a special gift to help lift their spirits by giving her a much needed item from her registry, the MamaRoo

4. Registry Success
Thanks to all of the wonderful mommies and the beautiful little joys that they have welcomed, or will soon be welcoming, into the world, we are privileged to say that 2013 exceeded our registry expectations and has given us the most active registries that we've ever had.

5. Our Store Manager
She's been with us since the very beginning and stuck by our side through thick and thin and this year, we were honored to promote Kathryn (also known and referred to as Kat), to our store manager on behalf of all her hard work and dedication to both the store and our wonderful customers
We have been blessed to have been given the opportunity to meet and get to know so many wonderful families and truly can not thank you enough for allowing us to walk alongside your life's journey. One of the most treasured occurrences in life is the birth of a baby and there is no better joy than to see what the beautiful gift of a child brings to a family. We are honored to have been apart of all that 2013 brought with it and welcome 2014 with open arms as we are sure it will bring even more of God's greatest gifts.
So, as we enter into another year of the unexpected, look ahead with vision for only the best, hope for even greater circumstances, encouragement to get through even the toughest of challenges, and faith for a life full of blessings for you, your family, and your little ones.
Here's to the happiest of new years yet!
