We are a family of soon to be 6. Two of our kids attend North Pole middle school, one attends midnight sun. We are due with a surprise baby in January. He have been in alaska for 2 years and absolutely love it. We had been stationed in Texas for a while, and Japan and Germany before that. While in Texas, we had two surrogate babies, for two different families. We thought we were done having kids of our own, so we wanted to help other families complete their own. Fast forward to this summer, and we were surprised with the news, that another baby would be arriving We are excited and nervous. We live off base, and now that heating oil season has started, and the holidays are upon us, budgeting is more important than ever. Beginning of the month though, we were informed, that military members would receive a reduction of cost of living allowance. For our family it’s a bit over 300$ a month, which makes a big difference. That was money we hoped we’d be able to spend on baby supplies, seeing we are starting all over again. Our other kids are 12,11&8, so we have nothing baby related left. Thanksgiving and Christmas will have to be planned out more diligently as well, to be able to make up for the loss. We would be honored and excited to be chosen for any baby related supplies. We are not picky at all.
