BONNIE BABIES CHARITY
........ Created and named in memory of my own babies.
To lose a baby is heartbreaking for any parent, we were no different, how we cope with it is up to us. My way was to create something so special we could go on to help so many others. To make a tiny outfit for a premature baby, or sadly a burial gown for a little one who didnít make it, knowing we can pass on a keepsake to parents to offer the tiniest of comfort for them to let them know we are all thinking of them and how much their baby was so important too.
I often think of the years I felt sad over the loss of our babies, too many years not talked about, no little names and how a tiny keepsake may have helped. I talk now about my loss through what I am doing here, I have my keepsake now its called BONNIE BABIES because my babies were important too.
I have been joined along the way by some of the kindest people I know, online and off. Giving their help and support in whatever way they can.
