Today, 12 of the baby quilts that our volunteers have made traveled to new homes.
Each was chosen by a dad who is currently in prison at the Western Youth Institution in Morganton North Carolina. Each quilt was carefully wrapped around a baby that spent 6 precious hours with a father they hardly know.
Each quilt became a special gift to a child--a concrete symbol of comfort and love.
I was unable to go to the prison this time but I know that Forgiven Ministries, who went into the prison to share Jesus' love with 12 young dads (this prison houses 13-22 year olds) told them about Margaret's Hope Chest and our story of pain, forgiveness and HOPE.
We do accept baby quilts for uses such as this--we are running a little low right now so please consider donating one to us. E-mail Carin if you need a mailing address.
