I hold a special place in my have for parents who have lost a child. Having lost 5 babies to miscarriage, and having one sister who was stillborn, I have been try to help other mothers’ deal with those feelings. I started a ministry last year that donates preemie blankets to hospitals. They can give those blankets to mothers who will leave the hospital with nothing but empty arms.

Here is a preemie afghan pattern I designed. Feel free to use it for any donation that will bring someone comfort. If you’re looking to donate to Wrapped In Love, you can use the contact button to contact me, or click the picture. The site will give you all the info there.
