For Love of Abigail, Handful of Hope -- Quilted Castle

We recently made a donation of 96 diapers for the families served by Handful of Hope and the DuBois Regional Medical Center in Dubois, Pennsylvania. These little diapers were handcrafted in memory of Abigail Elizabeth.

"Abigail was born at 26 weeks. She was born July 9, 2006. She was born weighing 1 pound and 12 inches. She was born early due to complications of preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome.  She lived for an hour and forty-seven minutes before she died in her mother's arms. This photo was taken during the few precious moments she was alive. She is being cradled in her Daddy's hands.


We created Handful of Hope as a way of sharing God's love and as a way of offering hope. God helped us through our darkest days and blessed us with our two rainbow babies. Our youngest daughter Leah was born at 26 weeks, 3 days weighing 1 pound, 3 ounces. She was given a 10% chance of survival. Whenever Leah was born, we relived our experience with Abigail and we were afraid we were going to lose another baby. Through much pray, God healed our daughter and she will be turning 4 in February. We hope through Handful of Hope that people realize that God still answers prayers and even if their prayers don't turn out the way they expected that He will be there to carry them through their darkest days." ~Kristen, Handful of Hope
These little girlie diapers were made by Bailey and her friends and family for her senior project as well as the SLC Diaper Divas.  The flannel had been donated to our headquarters by The Quilted Castle.


And these little boy diapers were sewn up by the Jana Hudspeth of the SLC Diaper Divas (AKA, our headquarters team!)
