Nineteen-year-old Anglyna is what we at Infant Crisis Services like to call a “Wonder Mom.” After giving birth at 18 to her beautiful baby boy, Zaedyn, Anglyna has taken on motherhood like a professional. Despite her surprise pregnancy, Anglyna has continued her studies at Southwestern Oklahoma State University and maintained a part-time job. All while doing her best to make sure Zaedyn has everything he needs to grow big and strong.
With so much on her plate, Anglyna needs a little extra help every once in a while. Money is tight. There is hardly enough to go around, and Zaedyn’s specialty formula is very expensive.
Zaedyn is lactose intolerant, so he can only digest plant-based formula. A can of plant-based formula costs anywhere from $20-30 dollars, sometimes adding up to $200 a month. Anglyna found herself stuck, having to choose between eating dinner herself or purchasing formula for Zaedyn. Like any mother would do, she chose to prioritize her son.
When our BabyMobile visited her hometown of Weatherford, Anglyna was able to receive the essentials – a week’s worth of diapers and formula – for Zaedyn. She was so relieved that the BabyMobile even had Zaedyn’s specialty formula, so she didn’t have to search for it elsewhere. After placing these items in her car, Anglyna said,

“Words cannot even describe what this means to me.”

Just a little extra help can make ends meet for families who are struggling. Clean diapers and new cans of formula mean more giggles. More smiling faces. Less stress for mothers who are doing their best to provide for their children.
Anglyna told us how much she loves being a mom and that she wouldn’t trade it for the world. She also told us that motherhood has taught her incredible patience. Even at the end of a long, trying week, Anglyna can see the bigger picture:

Mission Moment with Miki

The start of a new year means a lot at Infant Crisis Services. It means the renewal of visits for our clients and a major influx of babies and toddlers who need our services. Each child can visit Infant Crisis Services up to four times each year until their fourth birthday. Yearly visits renew every January, so as you can imagine, it’s our busiest month of the year. This January alone, we served over 2,000 clients. That’s about 40% higher than the average number of clients served monthly in 2021!

With the astounding client numbers we see in January, I can’t help but wonder about the families who rush to our doors when visits are renewed. How many months have these families struggled to make ends meet? Are there toddlers with hungry bellies and panicked parents willing for January 1st to come quicker? My heart breaks thinking of these families.

The start of a new year also means the opportunity to raise the bar. In 2021, you helped us provide food, formula, and diapers to nearly 17,000 little ones, and we could not be more grateful for your support. This year at Infant Crisis Services, we want to serve even more babies and toddlers and reach these families who struggle to make ends meet. And we can’t do it without you. We have so much growth ahead of us here at Infant Crisis Services, and it will take all of us working together to build a successful future for the babies and toddlers we serve. Thank you for helping us grow and providing hope to the little ones we serve. Your continued support is changing lives.

Always for the babies,

Miki Farris, Executive Director & Co-Founder
