Helping in an Unexpected Way

I just wanted to take a moment to share with everyone a unique and unexpected opportunity for Grandma's Promise to help a grieving family last week.

A funeral home employee contacted someone associated with Grandma's Promise with a special need.  This employee was aware of what Grandma's Promise has been supplying to hospitals in several states, specifically our Angel Ensembles.

Sadly, a precious set of premature twin girls had been born and only survived one day.  This particular funeral home was in charge of their funeral.  The family was having a difficult time finding something small enough to dress these two precious angels.

The funeral home employee asked this special lady who has crafted for Grandma's Promise from the very beginning if we could help.

She doesn't want any recognition, but I just had to share that she made two matching gowns that evening and delivered them to the funeral home the next morning.

Our hearts grieve along with this family, complete strangers to us, yet we are bonded through our shared experience of loss.  The tragic loss of premature twins.

Please keep this family in your prayers as the coming days are certain to be difficult.

Also, my sincere, heartfelt appreciation is extended to this special lady (she knows who she is) who took the time to quietly minister to a grieving family, complete strangers to her,  using her talent of sewing.

Grandma's Promise continues to touch lives in ways we never dreamed possible when forming this ministry just one short year ago.
