Baby blankets and cocoons

Our son's baby was born in the Wesley Prenatal Care facility in Wichita KS. He was premature and they had to stay with him there until he was big enough and well enough to go home in Dighton KS. They stayed at the Ronald McDonald House that is close to the hospital so they could be close to him. RMH was so good to them, so I decided to put my talents to work for them. I send them as many blankets and cocoons as I can get made. I have no idea who they go to, but I know the babies need them and their families enjoy them and are appreciative. Elliot was that baby. He weighed in at 4# 13 oz and had to wear a heart monitor for many months. However he is now 19 mos old, doesn't need the monitor anymore and is doing very well. We are very grateful for the help RMH gave to them, and this is my way of paying forward as much as I can.
