A Tiny Piece of Joy!

No blog post has touched me like the one from Kari's at U Create today. As many of you know around this time last year Adam and lost a baby girl. I delivered her at just 17 weeks. She was lovely and very tiny. The night before we had to deliver her Adam and I got into an argument about whether or not to bring a baby blanket to the hospital. For me it was letting her know we loved her, but for him it was just too much to think about. I remember this like it was yesterday...maybe it is the regret of not bringing a blanket. The closer I get to delivering Adelyn, the more I think about the baby I lost... and then to stumble upon this post only to find out the hospital in need is in my own backyard tells me God is listening and offering me a tiny piece of joy. I am going to be making a blanket or two and sending it to Greyson's Gift and I hope you will, too!
Please look at Greyson's Gift for more details about the 12 X 12 or 24 X 24 blankets and where to send them!


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I'll have to check it out. I'm so sorry you had to go through all that you have. But it's just going to make Adelyn an even greater treasure.

  2. Got me crying. I sent that link to my mom. Maybe we can donate some blankets.

  3. Now I am crying. I have to look into this... hugs to you!


Let's go make something,
