Anaira Creations explains why our mission touches their hearts so closely:
We love being able to support such a wonderful organization such as Lift Me Up: Babywearing to Thrive. It truly means a lot for several reasons. We started babywearing more when our daughter Ruthie was born with some special needs. We now have 6 children, and while we had used a carrier before with our older children, when Ruthie was born it became more of a necessity due to her developmental delays. Being able to babywear was such a blessing in getting to doctor appointments and therapy, as well as just doing everyday life sorts of things. Then, with our Miss V we needed to use a wrap or carrier to keep her out of trouble, lol, she is a live wire and has always been full of energy and getting into everything. When Ari was born, she had several special needs and later developmental delays, and babywearing became a way of life for us in many ways. A way to be sure she was breathing okay and keep her close, while still being able to live life with our other 4 children. Carrying her close while we had doctor appointments, therapy appointments and during the many hospital stays helped keep her (and us) calm <3
Babywearing truly has been such a blessing for us, and we want to help bless other families that have children with special needs. Even now, while Ari can now walk or likes to be independent and ride in the wagon to doctor appointments, Ela climbs out of every stroller or wagon, so she is the one in the carrier or wrapped while we go to Ari's therapy and doctor appointments. Having something to use to carry our special babies in is important for everyone, but is a true blessing to families with children that have special needs. We are so honored to be able to help spread the word about Lift Me Up, and do what we can to help get more carriers in to the hands of families that need them!
We started Anaira Creations, llc, after Ariana was born to offer unique one of a kind carriers that truly are pieces of art to wear your sweet baby in. Each carrier is cut, sewn and hand crafted, the applique is designed and cut by hand and then embroidered on with our trusty sewing machine that has been passed down 2 generations in our family. We love working with each family to design something truly meaningful and special for their family. Meeting each of you is one of our favorite parts, and then seeing our carriers in use is truly the thing that makes our hearts melt <3 It is each one of you that has allowed us to help support Lift Me Up and in turn helping so many families, blessing them with carriers to help them live their life and make it a bit easier, for that we are truly grateful.
We are so excited to be able to team up with Vaquero Wovens to offer up this truly one of a kind carrier to put up for auction and raise some funds to help spread the babywearing love to families that have children with special needs. Thank you so much for coming along side of us and helping us do this, without you it wouldn't be possible!
So... go check it out! 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Lift Me Up, and every dollar goes towards furthering our mission of providing carriers to families who have children with special needs.
