"THE BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD CANNOT BE SEEN OR EVEN TOUCHED. THEY MUST BE FELT WITH THE HEART."
- HELEN KELLER
My beautiful triplets were born on March 2, 2007 at 23 weeks 6 days gestation. My sweet Colin and Courtney passed away after 6 short days. My sweet Jaxon fought really hard but too lost his battle after 89 days in the NICU. No words can properly describe the feelings a mother has when holding her child when he/she dies. It is simply undescribeable. I started making micro preemie hats and burial sleepers/wraps to donate to other families who are going through this horrible journey. My love goes out to each and every one of them... My stitches may be crooked and my knitting not so straight, but the love put into each item is very great!
Where have the burial wraps been sent to???
So far the wraps have been donated to hospitals in...
-Thousand Oaks, CA
-Los Angeles, CA
-Cedar Rapids, IA
