"This was a very special day for me, as Teeny Tears is very close to my heart. My sister, Megan, is the founder of Teeny Tears, and started it after the birth of my sweet nephews. When Gloria Linerud approached me about doing Teeny Tears for their Youth Conference service project I was very excited. Gloria and her husband, Denny, were incredible and headed up this project with lots of love and enthusiasm for the families that these tiny diapers would bless.
The youth first listened to the Lineruds tell them about their humanitarian mission to Romania, and of the importance of service in our lives, to bless all of God's children. Then they explained to them the need for these little diapers even here in our own country, and then read the touching story of why Teeny Tears was started, in Megan's own words. The youth were deeply touched and anxious to help.
They traced and cut out little diaper patterns with sweet reverence and love for the families that would receive them. I felt very blessed to be there that day with the Lineruds, and with the wonderful youth of our Stake, as we worked together to serve these precious angel babies and their dear families." ~Heather Beauchamp, auntie to angel baby Dex Bradshaw
