This week we are sharing a poem with you instead of a quote. It’s a poem that has caused many tears. My amazing sister wrote it so we could give it to those who are receiving our Angel Gowns. She said as she wrote it, tears just fell, and as I read it, tears just fell. Neither of us have lost a baby that we’ve had to bury, but our mommy hearts felt the pain for those who have had to endure just a heart wrenching loss.
Our Angel Gowns project has been incredible! Our angel gowns and wraps are made by our incredible volunteers, from beautiful donated wedding dresses. We give them to hospitals so that they are available to families who lose their sweet babies too soon. This allows the parents another opportunity to celebrate their baby, as well as grieve their loss properly.
Our POWER CHALLENGE this week is to reach out to someone you know who has lost a baby or child. The pain never goes away, people just learn to function with it. Send a text, email, or card their way. Or drop off a little treat with the “Imprinted in My Heart” poem. Let them know you are thinking about them. If you don’t specifically know anyone who has lost a child, say a specific prayer for those who have. The Lord will bless them and help lift their burdens.
Thanks Imprinters for helping us spread love and hope to those with broken hearts.
