“Afghans for Angels” is an organization made up completely of volunteers who make and distribute baby blankets to local hospitals to give to parents who have suffered the loss of their infant through miscarriage, stillbirth or
"Afghans for Angels" is looking for volunteers to help create these blanket gifts. Blankets only need to be 2 feet square. Smaller and larger sizes are accepted also! The "fetal demise pouch" pattern is also a nice alternative to a standard blanket for our tiniest angels. These loving blankets will hug Angels from Preemies up to Full Term. If you can crochet, knit, sew, quilt, or decorate purchased blankets, we would LOVE to have your help!
Our “Afghans for Angels” are placed lovingly around these infant angels when they are held by their families for the brief time in which bittersweet hellos and sad good-byes are said. The parents are then allowed to keep these afghans as a token of remembrance of their baby. Just having something soft to hold is often comforting.
We want to acknowledge that these parents did have a baby. Though their child did not live long; we do not want to diminish the fact that they were, and will continue to be, the parents of this “Forever Baby."
