A month or so ago, I shared with you a beautiful yellow crocheted newborn hat that a friend had made for the baskets. A few weeks ago, we met for her to give us more! She had knit 20 more for the baskets!!! They are absolutely beautiful...yellow, blue, white & pink (& I hear that she's done even more in more colors)! They are just perfect! We included them in the most recent baskets that we delivered yesterday to MUSC. I added a little girly touch to the girl's hats...BOWS, of course! Take a look!
Another blessing from another kindred spirit...the "A is for Annabelle: A Doll's Alphabet" children's books! They were also included in the most recent batch! I had not even thought about adding books but as soon as I received them I remembered reading to Annabelle in the ICU when I couldn't hold her...a precious, precious memory of mothering her. She heard lots about being God's Little Princess but I am sure she would have loved this book, too! I know other heart moms will love the books and sharing this beautiful moment with their little girls!
Last summer, I came home to a bag on my front porch FULL of blankets & socks for the Annabelle Baskets! I knew from the adorable stuff in that bag that the generous donor and I would get along very well! She has a babydoll little girl and has been so touched by the heart community that she incorporated her very own classroom at the school where she teaches in raising awareness for CHD! They held their annual Jump Rope for Heart the night before Valentine's and, oh my goodness, look at the impact our little girl has made! I received this picture last week and just laughed & cried all at the same time! These children are PRECIOUS! (Extra points to the guys for wearing pink, too!) Oh, and one of her boys raised the most money of their student body...$1000 (very impressive for a 4th grader)!
My heart is full!
