Cara from Precious Angels Society contacted me last week and asked for a baby blanket for her organisation.
A little bit about Precious Angels Society: A non-profit organization to help grieving family`s who have lost a child. The goal is to place handmade blankets in hospitals for the parents to wrap their infant in at death. The blanket may stay with the parents for remembrance or follow on with their infant.
I was flattered at the thought that one of my blankets will a little bit cover comforting. And I remembered that I made a Baby blanket for a girl few months ago. I have not offered it for sale nor I have given it to one of my friends – what I usually do. Instead I kept it carefully. No idea why. It was as if my blanket had waited for her determination – and here it was.
I remember the day when Hannah was only 2 weeks old and she was very sick. We stayed at the hospital for more than 2 month. There were days when we did not know will she make it through this day or has she to go. It was the hardest time in my life. At the end we made it and I am so thankful for this. But this feeling I had at this time is deep in a little corner in my heart and every time one of my kids getting sick – only a little cold – this feeling comes alive.
And now is my little blanket on its was to a little angel.
