The babies were rushed away to be cared for by the doctors and nurses. Once they were settled into the NICU, I was allowed to make my first visit. As I looked over each of my newest grandchildren, my eyes were immediately drawn to the fact that the crocheted hats were too large for their little heads which were 22 centimeters around to be exact. The nurses had placed a pale yellow hat on Morgan's head. It was too large for him but not outrageously so. Yet, the hat on Meghan's head was a totally different story. :) Her little cream hat with a red center was so big on her tiny head that I smiled and immediately said "Grandma promises to make you new hats that will fit you perfectly in pretty little girl colors" and because I'm the type of Grandma that makes sure everything is always equal between my grandchildren, I stepped back over to Morgan's incubator and promised him that I would make him new hats in stylish little boy colors that fit his head properly also.
When I made those simple promises to Morgan and Meghan, in no way did I ever imagine that night that their lives would plant a seed in my heart to create a ministry to supply needed items to other preemies that will be the proper size for even the smallest of God's creation...a ministry that naturally had to be named "GRANDMA'S PROMISE".
