New Website for Annabelle Baskets!!!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to PROSPER you and not to harm you, plans to give you a HOPE and a FUTURE." Jeremiah 29:11

Upon the request of so many family & friends, we have created a website specifically for the Annabelle Baskets! I have added the link along the righthand side of this page for you.

We continue to be amazed and humbled by the outpouring of love and support. When I first shared our plans for the baskets with a dear friend she told me to "just watch...this will blow up in your face!". Boy, was she right! My guest bedroom has been converted to store and assemble the baskets and we have a business account set up for all the generous financial contributions! God is so good! His plans are not the plans that I would have chosen but I have been blessed beyond words by being able to share His love through my grief.

Check it out!!!

I feel horrible. I wrote on your site a few months ago, you emailed me back, and then I wrote back to you....a fairly long missive detailing my thoughts and prayers for these precious heart babies. Our son, Sam, is from China and has HLHS. I feel like I turned you off with what I wrote and want to apologize if I offended you in anyway. Your family is constantly in our prayers, and we still wish to reach out in some way through Annabelle Baskets. Again, I'm so sorry if my email was too...raw? difficult?

Jeremiah 29:11 is my life verse. I live by that. I am so glad that you are able to reach so many with the baskets. May those parents see Jesus in you and your work.

Your new site looks wonderful! I'm just amazed at how one idea can bring such joy to others and such honor to Annabelle. I hope and pray that this does "blow up" into a huge ministry for you! It's awesome! The pictures of the recipients of the baskets shows how wonderful they are!

Hi Rebecca,

I was so happy to meet you at the heartwalk this weekend. I almost didn't come up and talk to you but I am so glad that I did!I really hope that we can keep in contact because reading your posts and now meeting you has been such a blessing. Here is the poem I told you about.

The Chosen One

I had a dream the other night
It came to me so clear
I stood before the throne of God
Afraid to come too near.
God said to me,I hear your prayers,
There you cannot find,
I asked you here to talk to me,
And help to ease your mind.
I said well yes God, I am upset
About my special one
That punishment is awfully harsh,
Whatever have I done?
God looked at me and shook his head
And said you've got it wrong.
I sent this special child to you
Because you are so strong.
I searched and searched to try to find
Someone with love so rare
A parent so unselfish they could,
Give that special care.
I try and save my specail gifts
Like those your speaking of
For special kinds of parents
I call the "Chosen Ones"
Of all the ones to choose from
I think this I have done
A parent who deserves My best,
An honor you have won!


I just love this and I think it says it all!Take care and I will keep in touch with what happens with Craven and we will keep you guys in our thoughts and prayers.I am including his carepage although I haven't updated in sometime...however the closer it gets to his next surgery I will be using it more often.

Hi- my name is Mimi and my daughter is Mia. She is currently waiting for a heart here in Seattle. I just received an Annabelle Basket and want to tell you how much I love it!! What an amazing thing you are doing. All of the cute girly things totally made my day.

Thank you so much for sharing your daughters legacy with us. What a special heart mommy you are! I would love to help with your organization- let me know what I can do.

Thanks again so much- I have the bow in her hair right now! I will take a pic and post it on my blog :-)

Annabelle Baskets will surely bring smiles for year to come!!
