This is so sad, but beautiful. I’m sorry to share such a sweet, precious thing amongst…..well…..um, filth……but I just had to.
We lost a baby too…..much earlier than what could have been dressed or cuddled, but it was still very hard. My heart absolutely bleeds for people who go through it, and they deserve nothing less than to be able to dress their little angels and love on them for the time they have them. So so sad. I don’t know if there is anything like this in Australia. I need to check on that.
In the meantime, please reblog. Xx
Hey guys & dolls,
As many of you already know, I gave birth to my daughter who was born sleeping in September 2010. We were given a ‘bereavement suite’ away from all new parents and babies on the wards. Our baby girl was born at 20weeks and 5days gestation and taken from me straight away, when she was given back she was bought to us in a wicker flower basket. There was no crib, blankets or clothing small enough to fit her tiny body so we had to make do with a giant blanket. We got to spend a few hours with our beauty before finally having to say our goodbyes and proceed to arrange her funeral.
Unfortunately, not everyone that goes through this awful situation is as ‘lucky’ as we were and get the treatment we got. I know of many families that have had their children given to them in sick bowls, shoe boxes and some were not even given the chance to hold their angels. On top of that many families, like us, are unable to dress their babies as nowhere caters for tiny little ones like ours. We want to change this, stop this, and make the awful experience as pain free, comfortable and memorable as possible.
My mother in law has started creating these little premature baby cribs and clothing. I also make premature baby hats too. These beautiful little creations are currently being donated to local hospitals in order to help other families that are going through what we have. We are also looking to sell these to people who are preparing to go through something so devastating and/or as a keepsake. Each crib and piece of clothing is handmade and carefully created with love, care and time and each is custom made to the order.
As everything does, this project costs. We are only able to fund so much ourselves as we also have families and other arrangements that need to be taken care of. Now, please do not panic, we are NOT asking for your money and this is no scam, scheme or anything else. We are simply trying to raise awareness and need your help doing so. My mother in law has made a Facebook page in order to support this worthy cause, and I am now sharing this with you. The Facebook page is called ‘Nanna Pam’s Corner’ and the link will be at the bottom of this post.
All we ask is if you have any unwanted wool, stuffing and/or oval ice cream tubs such as ‘Carte D’or’ or ‘ASDA (Walmart) own brand’ (tubs must be OVAL SHAPE) please think about donating those to us. I am more than happy to pay for shipping costs and so on.
I would also be more than appreciative if you were able to help us spread the word by liking and sharing our Facebook page, and sharing this post anywhere you can. We want other families to know about this, to know we are trying to help, and to know we are willing to support them in anyway we possibly can!
