"On Her Wings" Memory Box Project

     So, thanks to my mom and her great ideas, this memory box project might really happen!  I'm so excited to get started!  I think I'm only going to do 10 for now, 5 for boys and 5 for girls.  We're going to include seed packets, candles, Certificates of Life, footprint kits and hopefully some more little things.  All of these will be donated to the hospital where Addie was born.  I just wish I knew how to crochet because I would donate that kind of stuff too.  I can't believe how excited I am!  It feels so right to finally be doing some good all in the name of my baby girl!  Stay tuned for more updates and, hopefully soon, pictures! (the name is just a working title for now, we'll see what else comes along) 
     I just began a new blog today to chronicle the making of these boxes.  There are not posts yet, but I hope to get a start on them soon.  You can use this link to check it out.

Great idea! I'm actually working on some hospital care packages as well and hope to deliver the first batch to the hospital my daughter, Lily Katherine, was born at. She was also born sleeping, two days after her due date. Hopefully I can get those delivered by her birthday, March 16th. Can't wait to see what you include in yours!
