I threw out the HUGE dry cleaners box last year but – just couldn’t throw out the dress.
I loved wearing it but, it’s time for it to go. No daughters to wear it and even if there were, I don’t think they’d want to wear it.
So – I found this awesome, incredible organization that uses donated wedding dresses to make burial gowns for new born infants, who have died before going home.
Take the time to go read about them and their mission. It’s really quite nice.
For those who didn’t know us 37 years ago, our first born started in NICU. It wasn’t fun. He just turned 37 in June and he’s okay. The NICU can be an amazing place and a very sad place. Reading how parents whose infant died, looking through a box of donated baby clothes, so their child would be clothed before a burial – – – well, this organization makes a terrible situation just a little bit more bearable.
If your dress is still taking up space and you want to donate it, here’s the website.
Take the time to watch one or more of the news videos while you’re there.
And yes, the Angel Gowns are sent at no cost to any family who requests one.
