    Lately I have helped a young lady make her first quilt. This quilt is to be given to the adoptive parents when her baby is born. The plan is for the new parents to be in the delivery room and to let the new dad cut the cord. The baby is due on thursday. All she has left to do is to sew on the label (notice the pins) and then wash it. I think it is a wonderful thing she is doing for her son, giving him to a family who will love and cherish him. Allison was able to pick the family out herself after reviewing several who met her hopes on how she wants the child raised. She will be able to stay in contact and receive updates and pictures as he grows.

    Thank you so much for such a beautiful story. You have given this girl a precious gift helping her with this quilt, and i love psalm 139, it is one of my favourites, it says i knew you when you were in your mothers womb, before you were born, and it also says that all the days ordained for you were written in my book, before you were even born. I'm sorry, im getty mushy here, because my memory isnt that good any more, but when i saw psalm 139 written on the label, i was just flooded with the memory of those words. So very very beautiful! And so glad it will be an open adoption, bless Allie :)

    At first she said that this would be her only quilt, but I told her that now she has to make some for her future children or they will be jealous. Allison will be returning to college in September, she has 3 semesters to go, maybe during next summer I can get her to make something for herself with the leftover fabrics from this quilt. Thank you for all your wonderful comments. Yes, Psalm 139 has a very special meaning for her and I as well.

    I agree wholeheartedly! Please send her our love and admiration for doing such an unselfish thing! She really loves that baby, that's for sure.

    It's a beautiful quilt, and it's true, she should make more!!!
