Many Mommies do wonderful things with their grief, they turn it into blessings for others!
“Many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.”
I have been planing on what I want to do to in remembrance of Jonathan. I definitely want to take a donation to our hospital. When Jonathan was born we received a cardboard box with some literature about grief, nothing personal for Jonathan or myself. Thank the Lord I had a handmade blanket I brought with me. I know one mommy the went into early labor at 20 weeks and had nothing for her son. When she took the hospital blanket he was wrapped in (for a memento) they actually sent her a bill. (BIG SIGH) How very sad. Many mommies have started donations to their local hospitals. here are a few FABULOUS friends that have done them lately. The link will take you to their donation, so you can get some ideas!
From the moment I saw the Tenny Tears web sight I was in love! I thought of how blessed I would of felt to receive one of these lovely handmade diapers.
This is a part of their admirable mission statement:
Teeny Tears diapers are soft against delicate skin and can be used to enhance photographic memories as well as offer dignity and modesty for the tiniest angels. Our wish is to bless families that suffer the same heartache, providing their angel with a soft, beautiful diaper in which to be photographed and laid to rest. We provide two matching diapers per family, one for the baby and one for the family to keep in a memory box.
It would have been wonderful to have one of these sweet diapers to put on Jonathan and one to take home. I know first hand that every item I have, is cherished. Mommies that received these gifts of love will be so blessed. They have lots of ways you can be involved. Visit their sight and get started! I personally want to sew our donation myself. I am hoping my MIL will help me SHHH I haven't asked her yet :)
Teeny Tears will contact your hospital and let you know how many diapers they need. They will also provide a (In memory of) card with your babies name on it .Here is the
You do not have to sew. You can go on the waiting list to get them sent to your hospital in honor of your baby. There are many ways to participate so check it out!
“Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.”
