The Big Reveal

A few days ago, I hinted at a new adventure I was embarking on. After being hounded to tell, I'm going to reveal this new project a little earlier than I had originally intended--plus I'm so excited I'm about to bust at the seams. I say "hounded" jokingly, but seriously thank you so much for all of you who have been praying over this new mission field for us.

Barrett's Hand print
When Barrett was born, I was so thankful for the camera provided to us by the hospital that allowed me to have the precious pictures of my son that I now treasure so much. However, I had one huge regret. I wish so much that I had taken the blanket my angel was wrapped in when I held him for the first time. I would love to have that in memory of my son. During the last three weeks as I spoke to other angel mommies, I realized that I shared this regret with so many mothers. So, I prayed about it. Then, as I crocheted a blanket for Project Linus, I thought What if I could do these for other angel mommies?. My thinking was that if the hospitals had these handmade blankets especially for angel mommies, it would be a lot easier for them to remember to send the blankets home with the mommies.

Please keep in mind that this is just in the very beginning stages, but we are covering it in prayer and I know that you have been as well. The blankets will go to all angel mommies, no matter what stage of pregnancy they gained their angel. Even if they don't get to hold their baby in the blanket, they will still have it as a reminder of their angel baby. We will also be including Psalm 139:13-16 with the blankets that remind me so much of Barrett.

I am still working with Project Linus--all blankets made and yarn donated thus far will be used for Project Linus blankets, unless you tell us otherwise.
