Preemie clothes

I began crocheting hats,booties, and kangaroo care blankets several years ago for the Threads of Love group in San Antonio. This is an amazing group who minister to infants in NICU care and there families. This group cares for the many infants who survive often against amazing odds and get to go home. They also help the families of those who do not stay here with us but go on to heaven. I mostly crochet small hats and booties but I have also made some remembrance items.
I was fortunate that my children who were "early birds" did not have to go into the NICU. I have a few friends who have had children in those units though. The staff deserve lots of praise for miracles worked and their dedication to the babies in there care. The families whose children are in NICU's across the US need lots of support and love.
