I seriously CANNOT believe that my little baby is ONE today! This picture was taken yesterday by a staff photographer from the Winnipeg Free Press. A follow up article will be printed in today’s newspaper, covering the presentation and donation of the quilts we are taking down today. What better way to celebrate Lawson’s birthday???
After a few more quilts trickled in through out the day, I counted them all as I was sorting them last night, and I have 173 in my house, and another 31 that have been made, but not delivered yet. Our grand total is 204 baby quilts, and 80+ sleepers.
Now, here are two pictures that reminded me about exactly why I began this journey…my heart still hurts when I see it. I remember so profoundly how my heart felt like it would break just looking at him, and feeling so desperate to have him home with me.
To think that he fought so hard to get well, and today he is a VERY BUSY, healthy and happy little boy…I am so thankful and so blessed!
Thank you to all who have contributed to Quilting for Babes, in each and every way, it could not have been done with out you!!!! And Happy Birthday Lawson, I love you more than you will EVER know!!!
