Knitting for Project Hope and Threads of Love

I'm busy knitting away on some very special, purposeful, tiny hats for a great cause. Enter Laura, of Splendor, a lovely woman and mother with a beautiful heart. She has spearheaded an awesome project called Project Hope

Laura is collecting items to be placed in boxes made by a wonderful organization called Threads of Love. They provide clothing, blankets and other handmade articles for tiny premature and sick infants, as well as for parents facing the death of an infant through miscarriage, infant death or stillbirth. Here's their mission statement:

"We desire to show God's love to the parents and loved ones of these babies in their time of uncertainty. Perhaps those who are experiencing incomprehensible pain may know a peace and serenity that extends beyond the situation. We want to simply be there to bring the unsaid message of God's presence and His infinite love and compassion."

You can read more about Laura's personal story and her special mementos here. What specifically are in these boxes you may ask? Here is a more concrete list from Laura of items that will be contained in the boxes:

-Tiny crochet hats and booties for shadow boxes {25 sets of blue or 25 sets of pink}
-Small teddy bear
-Small cross charm to be worn on a necklace or bracelet
-Small token coins with word Hope hand stamped.
-Christmas ornament
-Small lovie blanket
-Small bag with pink or blue ribbon for a lock of hair {25 of each color}
-Tags for hair lock bags with scripture verse- Matthew 10:30 "For even the very hairs on your head are numbered" 
-A small print with the verse Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to bring you HOPE and a future"
-Each box will include a printed prayer as well that has been donated. Moms can frame this prayer as a memory as well.  
-Burial gowns are also made for the baby and put into the box.

Being a mother and a NICU nurse, this project hit very near to my heart, and I immediately wanted to be involved. I pray that God uses everyone involved to collectively be a comfort and a ministry to each recipient.
