    I think its darling. If you are worried about the embroidery sticking up...maybe you could use a micro marker.

    Beautiful!
    Being the mother of a child who was born at 22 weeks and went striaght to the NICU where he lived for only two days. Most people do not know what little things like this means. But to a parent that has lost a child these are the only things that we get to go home with. I was sent home with a small blanket, a bear (I had one and he had one while in the hospital my bear got burried with him and I have his bear) and a hat. The blanket and the hat were both donated items and I don't know how I would have gotten through the first couple months without those
    "personal" items that belonged to him at one time!
    I have since donated many items to the NICU!
    sorry for the book
    From the parent of an angel, Thank You!

    It is a beautiful expressive block that I'm sure any parent of a preemie would treasure.

    I could tell immediately it was an angel. I also see the angel within a heart. Good for you and your mission. Keep up the good work as I am sure it means the world to those who have lost a little one.

    Danni,
    We haven't "spoken" before but I just could not let your post go without replying. It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for laying out so candidly the importance of those items to a bereaved parent.
