For Love of Carleigh -- Stillbirthday

When Stillbirthday highlighted our cause on their website, we provided diapers to the hospital of one of their readers, Holly Haas, angel mama to Carleigh McKenna.
"The mission of the stillbirthday global network is to validate a pregnancy loss as the birth, and death, that it is, and to fill the chasm between the moment darkness falls and when resources are discovered. We do this in part through free online materials including printable birth plans, and through our comprehensive doula training, preparing doulas to support families in person prior to, during, and after birth in any outcome and in any trimester. We aim to come alongside families from the very beginning of their parenting journey, whether through rearing or grieving, and provide support for their journey. The stillbirthday global network is a part of Christian Childbirth Services LLC." (Heidi Faith)

The Northwestern Diaper Dreamers provided 40 diapers for the families served by Clinton Memorial Hospital in Wilmington, Ohio.  Each diaper was donated in memory of little Carleigh McKenna Haas, who was diagnosed with anencephaly in utero on December 15, 2008 and born still on March 28, 2009.
"The time I spent with Carleigh will always be the most treasured of my life. I am blessed to be called her mother." ~Holly, mother to Carleigh
