There are some special babies that have been on our minds over the past few weeks. Our family and friends mean the world to us and it makes are hearts fight harder if they are the least bit sad.
As we continue to talk to Clara and Garrett about helping others and praying for others, it is heartwarming to think about a new cause each week with #CGPayItForward. Here are some causes that are either near and dear to our hearts or an opportunity to help others that were asking along the way.
