Tonight was the first meeting of our support group Parents of Preemies (PoP). It went much better than I was expecting (I always expect the worst) and I almost burst into tears at numerous occasions because I'm so happy that it's actually happening. I'm so lucky to be working with a great group of parents who are offering their advice and perspective. This project means so much to me and I'm overjoyed at watching it get off the ground.
And now a request :) As part of our project we are giving new parents gift baskets to congratulate them on the birth of their child (which regardless of how scary it is, all children are still a blessing) and we're including a small gift, a journal and information for them. If you have any (new) baby blankets, outfits (preemie) or hats that you'd like to donate, we'd LOVE to take them. We haven't figured out the fundraising portion yet so we're doing this solely based on donations. Also if you knit and are looking for a project, we would love to feature your creations in our baskets.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement as I put myself out there to make this happen!
