I recently made this baby cape. I think it turned out rather well. In my church we dedicate our children to God publicly. It is a wonderful blessing…My children never had that chance until recently. I didnt prepare special things for them, because they arent babies.
My friends wife is a great organizer for special things in her girls’ lives. I get jealous of women who plan parties and go all out for their kids. My poor children havent had a mother like that.
But dedicating them to God is an awesome responsibility to all parents. I so dream of how I want my children to grow and the kind of men I wish them to be. It is sometimes overwhelming to raise children in the right path. Only God can make sure it is the best one.
I see glimpses of what my boys will be like, I just hope all my prayers and wishes come true for them!
At the moment it has been so hot here in Korea. I did finish a charity gift for a charity for families that have lost babies and children. It is called Precious Angels Society. They are on facebook.
I made a little Cocoon and some slippers.
Why did I choose this one? I lost my little girl 14 years ago. My first baby. This month of July is a hard month. I have these strange feelings and cry often. I do have two handsome and beautiful boys…but nothing will ever erase the memories and dreams I had for my little Hannah Dawn…she would have been loved beyond measure.
I know for many people they may say they understand, but it is something that only those who go through it understand. I want to share with a mother and father a little something that will wrap and hold their precious little one close until they can meet again. It is never easy, but I pray that the family that receive my gift will be able to wrap their precious angel and know someone truely understands.
My experience here in Korea was a bit of a horror for me. I was never allowed to see or hold her, but for a glance. Then they coldly put her on a cold cart amongst the bloody clothes. Those were her wraps. Then my husband had to sign for her cremation. I slept in a hot enclosed room on a hard bed with my husband on a hard cot beside me on the floor. I had nightmares and woke up crying. I had those nightmares for two years.
When my sons came along especially my eldest..I was a mess of anxiety and tears. I went to the doctor for every little thing. Because I told my husband the doctors had to listen and care. Now I know I passed many of those things onto my son. But I had no support system per-say here in Korea.
There are many sad families in this world. Perhaps my small donation will make a difference in their lives and give them a sense of peace, even if they can’t feel it in the moment or even many years from that moment.
