Angel Care Packages to be delivered!!!

And the countdown has begun. 

Two days left until we make our trip up to the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia (CHOP) to deliver not one, but three, Angel Care Packages.  I am so excited I can hardly wait.  Delivering these boxes and being able to see some of the nurses who helped with Wyatt will be wonderful.  But knowing how much the contents of the boxes will mean to the families receiving them means so much more.

When finding out everything that was wrong with Wyatt in May 2010, we weren't given much time to be able to come home and get items for him.  Luckily, we remembered to grab the blanket I had made from him and an outfit.  While at the hospital, Brian got Wyatt a stuffed monkey.  Today, I hold onto memories and those very few items that once touched my sons skin. 

That is the purpose of the Angel Care Packages from Wyatt's Wishes, to ensure that the parents will have something to go home with and something to hold onto.  I am so proud of the fact that in just two days, three Angel Care Packages will be delivered to CHOP.  The packages will be provided to families going through the same terrible tradgey that we experienced not even one year ago. 

These are the three Angel Care Packages that are ready to be delivered to CHOP on Tuesday, March 22.

Angel Care Package number one!

Angel Care Package number 2!

Angel Care Package number 3!

A Challenge for a Good Cause!

Do you want to participate in something that will touch the hearts of many families and leave them with something to hold after their baby is gone? 

If so, consider helping Wyatt's Wishes meet our challenge of donating 20 Angel Care Packages to local hospitals by June 6 (Wyatt's first birthday). 

The Angel Care Packages include a stuffed animal, a handmade baby blanket, and a handmade card.  All items are placed in a decorated keepsake box, which can be used after leaving the hospital to hold photos and all keepsakes.

This was the first Angel Care Package that Wyatt's Wishes donated
to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in 2010.

Currently, I am crocheting blankets, but each blanket takes about 4-6 weeks to make.  If anyone would like to donate handmade blankets for this wonderful cause, please leave a comment or contact me at  Blankets can be knitted or crocheted. 

Additionally, if anyone would like to donate new stuffed animals that measure under 12 inches, please feel free to contact me at the same email address that is listed above. 

If 20 Angel Care Packages can be made by Wyatt's first birthday, we will have touched 20 families.  We will provide 20 mothers with something to take home from the hospital so their arms are not fully empty, as mine where when I left the hospital on June 7, 2010. 

Please help Wyatt's Wishes with this challenge! 

There is an angel looking down over us ensure we achieve our goal!
