Preemie Onesie Drive

There are some things in life that we will just never understand. There are things that happen in people's lives that you know are just so unfair. What always interests me though is how a person comes out of a tragedy. Do they turn the negative into a positive. I was recently contacted by a lady by the name of Rachel Mays. This woman has suffered tremendously. Her daughter was born with a heart defect and lived in the NICU at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC for 4 months before passing away. In memory of her daughter she has started a Preemie Onesie Drive. She is hoping to get enough onesies to give to each family at this NICU. I think it is a wonderful thing that she is doing. When a baby comes early, families are not always prepared for their arrival. And with a baby in the hospital, they are often unable to leave to go shopping for those essentials. A nice blanket or outfit for their baby is a wonderful gift. We are happy to contribute to this cause.
