A mother opens the door to her new son or daughter. Her eyes fall on her new child--a stranger--wearing ill-fitting clothes, no coat, and holding a bag with a few worn t-shirts. Both mother and child are confused and overwhelmed. The daunting task of making this little one feel safe, of integrating another person into the family, is the first priority. But other things feel more pressing. The baby needs formula. The toddler needs a teddy like the one forgotten at home. The little boy needs shoes that fit. The sweet girl needs a brush to start pulling through her matted hair. The teenager needs a backpack for the first day back to school. The whole family needs to be fed. The mother needs just a few words of encouragement and a number to call for advice.
