Wee Care Delivery....

(A sampling of the 54 gowns the ladies in our local chapter made.)


Yesterday several ladies from our local SAGA chapter and I delivered Wee Care gowns to our local hospital's NICU and Labor and Delivery (L&D). I had the privilege of preparing and ironing all of the gowns the night before. I enjoyed seeing all the stitches made with love from the sweet ladies in our group for the precious babies and their families. As I ironed each and every gown I found myself praying for the baby and the family that would be blessed by this small gift.

In addition to meeting with some of the NICU and L&D nurses to deliver the gowns, we were also given a tour of the NICU facility. This was my second tour of the facility and I am always so struck by how tiny the babies really are.....and how incredible the nursing staff is with the babies. I feel so blessed to be able to make this tiny contribution. And it never fails to inspire me to get busy making more. This afternoon found me leaning over the kitchen table cutting out yet more....lovely little Wee Care gowns!!!

So my Mom wasn't crazy back in 1962 when she offered to make preemie clothes for the hospital that had cared for me! Sadly, the turned her down....even for free. The gowns are absolutely LOVELY!

Those Wee care gowns are so appreciated. My granddaughter was 17 oz. when she was born....so tiny! She's now a happy and healthy 3 year old!

The love stitched into those little gowns will be such a blessing to those who receive them.

I have tried repeatedly to contact someone-anyone at our local hospital to offer my services and gowns but no one will return a single phone call. It is so depressing.

I guess I am going to have to corner one of the nuns with my gowns in hand and see if the personal touch works any better.

God bless you for the gifts of time and talent shared.

Thanks ladies. You all are so kind. Our group turned in 54 gowns...but I only made about 10 of those.

Karen....I say keep trying to give the gowns to a hospital. They are so appreciated and needed!!!
