East Alabama Mother's Milk Depot is now officially open. With the help of a local family, The Newby's, who lost their daughter at 39 weeks gestation, and Dr Rusty Herring, the owner of Cornerstone Family Chiropractic, it is the second one to open in the state of Alabama. It is located at the Cornerstone Family Chiropractic offices here in Auburn, Alabama.
The clouds were grey and the rain was hitting the pavement, but it did not prevent members of the community from coming out for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. Joy and smiles accompanied everyone who was there. The Newby's oldest son cut the ribbon in honor of his sister, Lyddia. We also had our very first donations of money, and BREASTMILK! It was truly a blessing to be in attendance and hear how the Milk Depot came out.
