Support for Baby Cook-Roberts

Greetings Family and Friends!

I am overjoyed to be announcing the news that my boyfriend, Brandon, and I are expecting our first born to enter this realm March 8, 2021. In preparation for ushering this new being into our community and our transition into parenthood, I am reaching out to galvanize support from you, my family, friends, and network, who we also consider as part of our baby’s village. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has shifted and uprooted all of our lives in ways that have brought opportunity for expanded possibilities and have also presented many unexpected, and some devastating, challenges. Embarking on this journey in the midst of the pandemic has been no different for us. Although we are most certainly excited to be expecting our first child, in such uncertain and trying times, we are also most certainly in need of support financially, mentally, and spiritually.  

Your donation will help us to secure our needs in the following ways:

-Birthing Center/Hospital Expenses
-Prenatal/Postpartum Care
-Doula Support 
-Mental Health Care
-Housing in NYC 

Brandon and I want to Thank you ALL for your love and support in our lives and that of our precious baby boy soon to be joining our ever expanding village. Especially during this time. Thank you! ❤️

Blessings, peace, & much much love to you all.

“they are all ours
that is, why we are here
to hold them close to our hearts
let them run fingers
over the tips of the wheat
lick sunlight from their palms
and find the place without nightmares
in our arms
before dawn
they are all of them ours
our karma and creators
the only test
for our species
over and over given
the air, the food, the water,
their skin, their unique way
their smiles
their smaller hearts
pounding inside our bodies from the moment
we are born
they are ours
they are all of them ours
they are all ours”
