Blankets


I've been meaning to write this for awhile. When Little Dorrit was in the NICU, we were unable to be with her constantly for various reasons. Living 6 hours away from St. Louis where she was born, only having one car, Trotwood being in school, Mr. Rochester needing to work during the week are just a few of the reasons. We made the trip to St. Louis as often as we could but often there would be a period of several days where neither of us were with Little Dorrit.  When we did return to the NICU, it almost never failed, a new item would have been added to Little Dorrit's room such as a handmade blanket, a new book, or new item of clothing for her. When asked where these things came from the nurses would usually tell us they were items donated to the NICU. Little Dorrit received several beautiful handmade blankets made by groups like Project Linus. These blankets brought color and light to Little Dorrit's hospital room and we are so grateful for them. So, if you are ever looking for a service project, just know, that if you choose to do something for NICU babies, your efforts will definitely not go unnoticed.
