For Love of Molly Part #2

Holly M., angel mother to Blake and Shane, donated diapers in memory of a friend's angel baby Molly, who was born sleeping.  These diapers were donated to Hilton Head Hospital on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

"We lost Molly in December 11, 2009. She was perfect in so many ways. She was born sleeping at 24 1/2 weeks. We went for a routine u/s and found that she had no heartbeat. I had no idea, that this could ever happen. I had at that time a 10 y/o daughter and 8 y/o son and step son (they are 6 months apart). 

Teeny Tears was the first thing in over 3 years that made me feel like I was helping other angel parents out. Then I became overwhelmed with my older kids' schedules and my marathon training. This is when I found Holly M. (angel mother to Blake and Shane) who completed the diapers that I started and more with all the fabric that I bought to make in Molly's honor. 

I truly can't express what Teeny Tears has brought me in my healing journey and others in their healing journey." ~Jenn, angel mother to Molly

For Love of Paul and Alexander

"I just mailed out my first diaper donation! Southern Hills Medical Center in Las Vegas, NV will be getting 25 sets (12 large and 13 small). I’ve been making baby items for other charities since 2005 in memory of my nephews: Paul and Alexander Mayo. Baby Paulie was my sister’s first baby. We were happy to be able to spend 30 days with him before he left for heaven. He will always be in our hearts along with Baby Alex who graced this world at 18 weeks in 2006. As I watch my son grow up, it’s hurts my heart to think that his cousin Alex would only be 1 week older if he would have made it to full term. As I continue to mourn the loss of my sister’s babies, it makes me feel good to be able to sew, crochet, knit and decorate memorial items so that other families like mine would have a little comfort during a very sad time. No family should go home empty handed but in sad cases it is important for the family to have something to remember their child no matter how small it is. I want to say thank you to Pinterest since that is how I found Teeny Tears."  ~Elaine, angel auntie to Paul and Alexander

Baby Paulie:

 50 diapers for the families served by Southern Hills Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada

For Love of Lael and Avery

"I found this group in October of 2012 after my sister-in-law lost her baby girl, Lael Gutierrez at 18 weeks. My heart fell & I wanted to do something in her honor. Well, life got the best of me during the holidays and I hadn't even sewn up 1 diaper. 

In January of 2013 I found out I was pregnant. I have 3 beautiful children from a previous marriage but this baby was our first. Brayson was nervous watching my tummy grow (it was his first all together). Our 18 week ultrasound came & my heart fell as we learned I had lost the baby just days before mother's day. Our daughter Avery was born with no nurse or MD in the room, just us & it was peaceful. I was very blessed to have delivered at the only hospital in San Antonio that carried these lil gems. 

Soon after Avery s birth I started sewing. I needed this group so much. It is honestly what has helped me to heal. My children help flip the diapers & even pin them. We talk about sister & how much we love her often. She is forever with me. 

With each donation of diapers, I send it off with a kiss & a prayer in my heart for the angel families and the staff of all these centers."   ~Naomi (mom of Avery Verzella & aunt to Lael Gutierrez)

486 diapers have been donated in memory of Lael and Avery for the families of:

Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas
Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, New Mexico
Methodist Child and Heart/Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas
Renown Regional Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada
University of Maryland  St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, Maryland

Diapers by Edy

These are my photos from the delivery I made to the University Hospital in Tampa, Florida. 20 large and 20 small diaper sets. I had a strong need to get involved with a charitable organization and especially one dealing with infants or children so I contacted several and did not get any response until I contacted Teeny Tears and you got back to me immediately. Currently its just me, sewing for all of the angels who are gone to soon, and I will continue to sew as time allows. It feels so good to be a part of your team, thanks for all you do!   ~Edy Tampa, FL

For Love of Lauren Part #4 - #12

The Watson Family has recently provided donations of Teeny Tears diapers and other clothing items for the families of:

Sanpete Valley Hospital in Mount Pleasant, Utah
Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango, Colorado
Southwest Memorial Hospital in Cortez, Colorado
Sevier Valley Medical Center in Richfield, Utah
Castleview Hospital in Price, Utah
Steele Memorial Hospital in Salmon, Idaho

"Cortez and Durango, Colorado are relatively close to me. I called and offered them diapers and they were very receptive and had never heard of tiny diapers. I mailed off boxes to them" ~Amy

In an effort to reach all hospitals in Utah, we reached out to Richfield and Price hospitals. As we went to visit family for the 4th of July we were able to work these towns into our drive. It was fun to drop off diapers in person, especially for my daughters who help me so much with the project." ~Amy

"I sent two small sets to Steele memorial in Salmon, ID for an 18 week baby being induced.I also sent a large bunting in case it was needed. Although a donation is in the works, this was an immediate need I was so happy to be able to fill. Also included hats, a lay-me-down wrap and blanket with each set."  ~Amy
"Here in our neck of the woods, there are some ladies who take care of any stillbirths that happen. They do hand and foot molds, pictures and dress the babies. The Angel Babies group was running low on tiny clothing, so some of us here made up sets to fill that need. We made diapers, blankets, gowns and  hats. The need is rare but we are ready." ~Amy
And ten more sets of diapers for Sanpete Valley in Mount Pleasant, Utah
Thank you, Watson Family!

Diapers by Barbi

 Volunteer seamstress Barbi has made 84 beautiful diapers for angel families in Arizona.

"A few months ago my cousin's daughter gave birth to a stillborn and I made a bereavement gown for her precious angel baby, Benjamin. A few days later, I came came across Teeny Tears and saw how a tiny little diaper could bring some comfort to angel families. 

Twenty-nine years ago I had a miscarriage. I had an ultrasound done on a Friday morning then a call from the doctors office that evening. The call was to tell me I had miscarried and I would need to go in on Monday for a D&C. The only thing I remember is that everything was handled in such a cold manner and I just tried to be strong. My participation with the TT project has helped heal my heart from my loss. Every diaper is stitched with love and a prayer that the families receiving them will find some comfort in knowing that their precious angel baby is wrapped in warm love." ~Barbi Lopez

For Love of Karter Part #2

"This is the second annual donation in honor of our TTTS angel Karter Maverick Dunn. The diapers were lovingly made by my Aunt Tami and her family as well as by a dear friend of mine's Aunt Mary.

My husband and I vowed to not let Karter’s passing be for nothing. I speak regularly to my now 15-month old Kolton about his guardian angel brother and will continue to tell him how much of a bond they share. We will always be a mommy and daddy of twin boys and I was so blessed to have gotten to feel his little life inside me!  We are so excited to be a part of such an amazing blessing that the Teeny Tears organization is to other families like ourselves!" ~Danielle, mother to TTTS survivor Kolton and angel baby Karter
