CCBABY Gives Back
CCBABY is committed to giving back to the community. More than anything, we love to support and encourage organizations that help babies, locally, nationally, and around the world.
One cause near and dear to our hearts is Abel Speaks, a non-profit organization that supports families carrying a baby who has received a life-limiting diagnosis in the womb. Abel Speaks was founded by Kelly Crawford, a close friend of CCBABY Founder CC Wood, after Kelly and her husband, Daniel, had a son, Abel, born with Trisomy 18 (Kelly and Abel pictured above).
While Abel was in the womb, Kelly and Daniel learned that Trisomy 18 is "incompatible with life" and that, because Abel's life likely would be shorter than most, much of the medical community and society devalued it. Kelly and Daniel had the privilege of caring for Abel for 9 months in the womb and 15 sweet days after his birth. Through Abel Speaks, they seek to support other families in similar situations who choose life for their babies. In support of Abel Speaks, CCBABY donates The Everything Blanket to be included in each Abel Box, which is a gift given to each client-family, including books, resources, and other helpful and commemorative items.
