Teeny Diaper Delivery
This past week I took my first group of teeny diapers to one of our local hospitals. In February I did a post that told you about Teeny Tears and their mission to provide preemie and micro preemie diapers for stillborn babies and their family. The baby is dressed in a diaper and then a second, matching diaper goes to the family as a keepsake. Being someone who does not sew, it took me a couple week to get these few done, but it was much fun! Aren't they the cutest? I'm looking forward to sewing up some more, as well as looking forward to seeing flannel go on sale so I can pick up some more.
Just before taking the diapers up to the hospital, the girls and I sat and prayed for the families that would be receiving a diaper. As I was walking out the door Sissy said, "Wouldn't it be neat if a family needed one of these today?" The innocence of a child right? Of course it would not be "neat"...sadness, grief and destroyed dreams accompany these diapers, but yes, it would be neat to fill a void for one of those families. My biggest prayer is that God provide comfort to a family that suffers an infant loss and if the family is not a believer, that somehow, God uses their experience to draw them near to Him.
