My mother came all the way to Washington State to be with me for three weeks before the birth of my son. I had a lot of preterm labour scares, and was terrified. So she dropped everything and came to be with me.

Last year while I was off work and going to school, my sister and mom got together and paypal'd hubby and I funds for grocery shopping for the month. And when hubby was laid off, a couple wonderful ladies here at DST each sent me a little gift.

I do want to share how awesome one of my friends is, I hadn't seen her in a quite a long while, after she had her son, we grew apart, and then when I got pregnant, we became a little closer, but she had moved about 3 hours away.
On the day of my baby shower, she knew that my family lived in another state and wouldn't be "showering" me with gifts and she knew that we were struggling with money for this surprise baby (my sweet baby Yorick), so she called me on her way to my shower and asked me if there were any big boxes at the shower. I said, "No, why?"
She showed up with my pack n' play, my travel system, 3 huge boxes full of clothes, and a Large Lansinoh gift basket. She said that someone had done something similar for her when she was pregnant and felt the need to pass it on and that she knew I really had no family but my friends to rely on.
I was so touched, I sat and cried for half an hour at my own shower! I will never forget that she did such a thing for me.
I just wanted to share!
I do love the green kit, but I don't mind if I was late on this RAK, I just liked the thread.
Thanks for giving us opportunity to feel so grateful!

When we adopted my first child we didn't really prepare very well. I think we weren't sure it was really going to happen so we didn't invest alot. While we were gone my parents got furniture, painted the room, hung borders, and put up pictures. It was a wonderful gift and I was so glad to have a nice room to bring him home to.
Also a very good friend of ours left a whole bunch of toys right in the middle of the living room for us. Such good friends and family supporting us through our first adoption.
And I love the pink!

I would have to say that some of the nicest things happened to me, through this community, after our son died last Sept. I can't express to you how much I was touched by the generousity of ppl that had never met me, never laid eyes on me, and a lot didn't even know my name... but they gave. And they gave generously.
Thanks ALL of you... you know who you are. You have given in time, creativity, prayer. May all that you have done come back to you here, or when you get to Heaven.

I'd say the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me was something my Grandmother did. I remember being a senior in high school and one of our class trips was to England, Scotland, and Wales. In passing I told my grandma that someday I would love to go on a trip like that (I'm a total Anglophile). On her birthday, October 20th, 1986, she pulled me aside and said to me, "Your grandfather and I have talked about this and we are going to send you on this trip." I was floored. I come from an ordinary middle class family. We don't do Europe...lol. So they saved my grandmother's social security checks so that I can do.
They were the BEST grandparents. So selfless.....when I needed an additional $2,000 for closing on my house they gave it. No questions asked. If I got B's in college they would pay for 2/3's and me 1/3. Really the best, most giving, selfless and loving people I've ever known.
(green) and this so sweet of you....whoever you pick.

My husband and I were going through an IVF cycle and since we are military we have to pay for everything out of pocket as the military insurance doesn't cover things like that. The dr we were working with did one of the procedures for us for free, that saved us $500. We didn't get pregnant, but the gesture of the dr reminds me that there are people in the world who care.
I love the green kit!
