Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and a very safe New Year!
Thank you all so much for everything you have done for the babies in 2010! We have brought alot of smiles to many parents and nurses faces over the year. We have also brought alot of comfort to those who have lost a child in this past year too. Without your love and care that was put into each item you created for the babies, we couldn't have done this. Thank you so much!!! I look forward to working with all of you in 2011! Thanks again to everyone from the bottom of my heart!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I apologize for the delay in writing on the blog. It's been a very difficult time here at my home. My Mother has been ill and had to have surgery. A simple surgery that turned into a nightmare for her and our family. Almost a month in the hospital and she will be going to rehab for physical therapy. Then getting through our First Christmas without Hayden, was another difficult time for all of us.
On to the deliveries....
My car broke down and Steven, my middle son and preemie back in the day (that's him above!), drove me to make the deliveries to UVA NICU in Charlottesville and then to Winchester NICU. The nurses and staff went nuts over seeing Steven and how he has grown! They love seeing NICU grads come to visit. Was so happy that Steven was able to go with me. The nurses and staff just LOVED everything we made for them! I got alot of oooo's and aaaaah's and thank you's! And....the nurses loved the lotion!!!
I stuffed 84 stockings for the 2 NICU's and had enough for the L&D unit at Winchester. We exceeded the blanket total and had plenty left over for extra babies!!! There were plenty of hats, booties and outfits for the babies.
I was told at Midnight, Santa and Mrs. Claus came to visit the babies in the Winchester NICU and the babies got their picture taken with them! He passed out our stockings and got to see all the beautiful blankets and outfits for the babies! Thanks to Santa for helping pass them all out for us!!!
Thank you so much to EVERYONE who made a family's Christmas bright this holiday! I am so blessed to have such wonderful ladies in my group helping the babies and families. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart - you are wonderful!!!
Hugs and Love and Holiday Blessings to all!!!
