In Memory of..

I would like to introduce you to something that has had great impact on my life and the lives of many others. A sweet friend of mine over at Bits of Splendor started something called Project Hope. You can read all about it here. 

This project is designed to help women who have lost precious babies. To go to a hospital to have a baby and not come home with anything is devastating. My friends own experience of loss and hope has inspired her to give back. We are getting together to make boxes full of sweet mementos to honor and remember the child that was lost. Women who are in the hospital will receive these boxes. While these can never replace their child, we are praying that it will give some sort of peace to the heart of the mother. 

This is something that you can get involved with no matter where you are.

Here is a list of what she still needs for the memory boxes:
30 hand stamped HOPE charms.
85 sets of booties and hats {these should be small enough to fit a preemie}
approx. 85 lovies
4x6 frames {for the prints}

If you can give any of the above items that would be awesome. You can also give a monetary donation. Just click here to give to Project Hope. It will direct you to paypal. You don't have to have a paypal account to give. You can simply use your debit or credit card.

 What's really cool about giving a donation is you will receive a 5x7 print to either keep or give to someone who has lost a baby. To honor that memory. I know that for me, right now, I have nothing tangible to honor our angel baby. This would be such a great thing to have to remember our sweet baby.
