A few weeks ago I came across a page on Facebook: Human Milk for Human Babies. The one I found was for Oregon (The Move) so I joined the page and began reading about moms who needed milk and moms who had milk to share. I still didn't think I would ever do it.

But if my milk is good enough for my babies why not another hungry baby?
I sought out the FB HM4HB for Texas. I checked it ever so often for new updates. Then there she was: a momma in need right in my area. I contacted her and started pumping that day. A few days later she pick up the milk. It wasn't much because as soon as I started pumping Lily decided she wanted to start nursing more! But it was enough to help another momma and baby out.
I fell good about it and hope I can help another momma and baby one day. I'm pretty sure Miss Lily will not be weaning any time soon so I will have plenty of milk to share!
