Shaina is a sweet mama I have had the pleasure of meeting long ago before we both experienced loss. She has just started a new outreach for loss moms and I wanted to share it with you. It's called Rows for Remembrance. This is what Shaina says about her new ministry...
I want to minister to families who have had a miscarriage, or suffered the death of a baby while pregnant. Sadly, I know several women who fit this niche, and I know there are thousands more out there. I want to give them a blanket, an "unfinished blanket", to represent their babies sweet lives.
Each blanket will have rows that represent the weeks of their little ones lives. Our blankets will start out with a specified amount of rows (20) and then will have an additional row for every week that you carried your baby. If you had a miscarriage at eight weeks, like me, then your blanket will be 28 rows long. If you had a baby born sleeping at 34 weeks, then your blanket will be 54 weeks. Each row signifies those memories you have of your sweet babe.
Shaina has asked for help too. If you can knit or crochet, she is asking for some help. So go over and visit her blog and leave her some kind comments while you are there!
