Crochet and Sew for babies

I am disabled, and I like to sew and crochet, since I have the spare time.
It is hard for me to get the materials I need sometimes, but I do what I can. I joined a group on my computer, called, "Heartfelt Angels", and I
have crocheted baby hats,booties,preemie quilts and burial pouches.
I do not have photos of the baby quilts I made, I did make about 30.
We are to make and send whatever we can to our group leader, every 6 mos.
We have a good sized group, and we try to stay dedicated to the babies.
The group donates to 13 hospitals in West Virginia.
Our leader shares the thankyou letters,notes and comments that come from the hospital staff,social workers,nurses and grateful parents! They are so thrilled to see and get all the beautful baby items! My heart is happy!
I have just sat and crocheted for myself or family...until I came across this group, if I am going to crochet, it is good therapy for me and it is
being made for someone that can really use the item.
It's hard to explain, but it is just a great feeling to do this for those babies! And the parents really appreciate it very much!
God bless them all!
