Caring for Babies

Although I've moved to Texas from Alabama, I still send items to The Caring Hearts group in Tuscaloosa, AL. They're a wonderful group of people, both women and men who get together once a month to gather the items people have made in their spare time for the NCIC unit in the two hospitals in town, the men help with the deliveries. They also make things for the Save a Life group, nursing homes and Dresses for Africa. I've used the Lion Brand Baby soft, Jamie and Vanna's Choice Baby to make hats, blankets, booties. The Preemie hats are so small, they can fit on your fist, and the blankets are the size of table napkins. The group is very friendly and made me feel welcome and needed after moving from Buffalo, NY and going through bad homesickness. The group has been featured in the local newspaper. The nurses are always grateful and parents have written to Caring Hearts expressing their gratitude for helping with both the grieving process and taking the baby home in a new outfit. I'm really glad I found the Caring Hearts for the volunteering effort, putting my craft (crochet and Sewing) to a good cause, and making parents, nursing staff feel better about the little one. Thank you, Lion Brand for the wonderful yarns that help with this great cause. Diane Lloyd
