These families are forced to choose between buying diapers and essentials like food, utilities and childcare. No government assistance exists for diapers.

Not long ago, we were approached by Little House on the Prairie regarding licensing prints on our diapers. As I considered the opportunity, my daughter brought home the books and began reading the series. As she read, she was filtering those stories through the lens of current political and social events, reflecting wisdom and awareness beyond her years. In her own way, she was reminding her mama about the importance of learning from history through our modern experience and reflecting that learning experience into something purposeful for the future. As we engage with early pioneer history, we find stories to
