For those of you who are new to the blog, you may not know that I run a charity organization in memory of my son, Barrett. (Barrett’s Blankets). There is a separate blog for it that can be found in the page “Barrett’s Blankets” at the top of the home page.
Barrett’s Blankets donates handmade babies to different NICU’s and also to different hospitals for parents who are suffering through miscarriage, still birth, infant loss, or child loss, and send blankets to parents of angels.
For the NICU families we hope they provide a sense of comfort that they are in the thoughts and prayers of someone else. For the families experiencing loss, we hope the blanket serves as a memory of their angel for them.
The appreciation I feel for my volunteers is not something that I can describe. Most of the time I make the blankets myself which is a lot of work because it’s a lot of blankets. So when someone takes the time to make and send us blankets it truly blesses my heart because we are able to reach out to more families.
My volunteers are truly a blessing from God and I do my best to recognize each volunteer and blanket individually. I hope you all know how much you are appreciated!
Yesterday I received a donation of six blankets from a very sweet lady in Mississippi and I was truly moved to tears. Barrett’s Blankets has never had a need that God hasn’t met. A few days ago I posted that we needed blankets for New Orlean’s Children’s Hospital and then yesterday I received the blankets from Betty and another volunteer said she had sent one my way. I also received emails from two other people wanting to start volunteering.
Anytime we have had a need, God has filled it through some amazing, caring people, and my volunteers who I cannot praise enough! Thank you so much!
