In the months that followed Shayla's loss, she decided that she could help parents with similar circumstances - whether it be stillbirth, miscarriage. So Shayla formed a non-profit organization called Owl Love You Forever whose purpose is to prepare and circulate (to hospitals) boxes containing care or therapy type items to parents who find themselves in this situation. What's in a box?
To kick-off her non-profit, Shayla is having a "birthday party" on the day that would have been the twins' first birthday. At the party, many people across the Valley (we all live in the Phoenix area) will gather to put the boxes together. Those boxes will be donated to local hospitals and used to help others.
What's up with the stack of flannel up there in the picture? I am making blanket sets to contribute for the boxes - and they have to be made with flannel. Each blanket set has a regular size receiving blanket and a premie size one. So, if this suits your fancy and you too want to participate, you can get more information here: How you can help and if you have questions: Who to Contact
I'll post again once my blankets are complete! :) I'm hoping to make it to the box prep party in May because I always love hanging with the girls from Sassy Soirees and Modern Cupcake (they're both contributing to the big event!)
...and in the meantime, give your kiddos a special squeeze!
