Snowy Owl Baby -- Calypso's Ocean

Snowy Owl Baby made a donation of beautiful designer fabrics for our angel babies!

From their stash, we were able to make 84 diapers in memory of Calypso Paikea Rhyder, the angel inspiration behind Calypso's Ocean.
Serving angel families since 2007, Calypso's Ocean is a two-part organization. One part is supplying an online memorial page for parents whose babies passed away while still in the Hospital or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. A place for other people to read your child's name, see their photo, and take a moment of silence in their memory. The second part is donating bereavement items to NICU and OB wards in Central Indiana, Ohio, and Florida. Trying to help each newly bereaved parent know they are not alone and someone out there does care about their angel and about what they as the parents are going through.

Snowy Owl Baby provided us with several flannels from the Free Spirit Collection by Valori Wells, including  Owl Friends -- Ocean...
Urban Flannel -- Friends/Multi...
Owl Friends -- Blossom..
Elephant March -- Green...
And lots more!  These diapers were made by Vanessa, Megan K. and Megan B., three of the SLC Diaper Divas.  We made boy diapers...
And girlie diapers...

For love of Calypso
We also sent along 16 more diapers to Calypso's Ocean that were donated by the Green Family!
Our diapers will be donated to angel families through Calypso's Ocean with blankets, hats, booties, memory boxes, teddy bears, and books.
Thank you, Snowy Owl Baby, for making this donation possible!  (Go give Snowy Owl Baby some Facebook lovin'!)

I remember being on a parenting board years ago when Calypso's Mom had her. Every time I hear or see 7-7-07, I think if baby Calypso. I'm so happy that I stumbled upon this page. Now I am inspired to make some of these diapers in memory or Calypso.
