Okay, My cousin and I are making blankets for the local NICU and unfortunately the blankets we are making will be for angel baby's.
I want to make a card to attach to each of the blankets, but I am not sure what to say.
Any ideas, poems, bible versus, or sayings that comforted you in your time of need, please send my way. I want to make various cards, because not everyone finds comfort in God, but I want to be able to comfort these families in some small way.
You help with this project is much appreciated.

  1. I know you said you wanted a saying, but on the ones I donated to the NICU I had a tag (acually my MIL did) that said in loving memory of Kasey James (if I would have done it I would have put) 11.16.08-12.19.08 as well. I guess that doesn't comfort a family... So I wasn't much help :\ I can't think of any phrases right now, I will post again if I do. Good luck with your project!


  2. Here are some great quote/poem sites.

    I have read "From our baby to yours"

    What you are doing is amazing!

  3. I think that any poem, quote, or verse you use will be great. Most of the ones I have seen touch my heart. My favorite quote is:

    The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart. -Helen Keller


    When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. -Unknown

    You should check out Rachel's site at That may be helpful.

  4. Psalm 71:20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.

    Psalm 116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

    Psalm 22: 9,10 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

  5. What a beautiful thing you are doing. I have no phrases or verses to give you but wanted you to know that I greatly admire what you are doing. Hugs

  6. That is just beautiful. My favourite little verse (well 1 of them), was the verse that was on bereavement bears we were given and it is simply: An angel in the book of life wrote down your (our, my) babies birth, and whispered as she closed the book, too beautiful for this Earth.. Then you have the option to add in loving memory of 'Elliot'

  7. I can't think of anything at the moment. I
    ll come back later with something. I think what you are doing is wonderful. Good Luck.

  8. It's hard to know what to write because you don't know the faith traditions of the bereaved families who are receiving the blankets and what comforts some might not comfort others. I love the idea of "from our baby to yours" that Malory suggested and in loving memory of Elliot because that just says so much. I really liked this little saying I saw at "Some people only dream of angels. I held one in my arms." What a wonderful project you're working on. Maybe you could do different tags and leave it to the nursing staff to figure out what would be the most comforting to each particular bereaved mother or couple?
