There’s obviously something in the water here at Arcare Sanctuary Manors!
We all have something to celebrate as 3 personal support workers at our residence are pregnant and due around the same time.
In order to celebrate their journey as a mother, team members and clients got together to put on a special baby shower for the three of them.
There were beautiful gift baskets put together by donations from the clients and team members. Whether its nappies, blankets or toys, we’ve got them covered!
No baby shower is complete without some fun! So we organised some baby shower games where everyone got involved and had so much fun.
Our residence chef even made pretty pink and blue cupcakes! The question of “Is it a girl or a boy?” was on everyone’s lips and minds.
The residence knitters group also contributed by knitting adorable little baby jackets and bonnets for the babies.
The mums-to-be were in awe of everyone’s generosity and kindness, especially after being pampered with so much love and so many beautiful gifts!
It was such a great day celebrating the new life that is about to enter this world. Here’s to the mothers to have loved and cared for their child in more ways than anyone ever could.
We look forward to meeting the babies when they arrive! And congratulations to our friends Jessica, Parul and Leandra.
