I won this baby quilt in an Instagram auction to benefit little baby Kate and her parents.
|Quilt by Quilt Story Meg|
I am going to sign the back of the quilt with my name and place of residence and a brief message.
Then I am going to send it along to the next person who would like to sign it. And on it will go.
Because Ryker and Amanda lost little baby Kate. Less than two brief months is all they got with her. You can read her story here on a Quilt Story's website, and on Instagram under user @rykerandamanda.
I won this quilt in an Instagram auction to benefit Kate's parents because they had recently lost her and were experiencing devastating hospital bills. They did not know about the auction. They haven't asked for money from anyone. The only thing that is holding them together right now is their love for each other and the love of family and friends.
You can share in this mother's grief and send her kind words and thoughts by viewing her instagram profile @rykerandamanda . It is startling, heartrending, incredibly brave. I honestly do not know how to help her other than to show her that she is not ALONE. That there are others out there who understand, or want to, and who care.
Let's try to get as many signatures, from as many places and people as possible. So that when Amanda wraps herself in this beautiful quilt, she will think of her beautiful baby, and know that we are all there thinking of them, too.
It doesn't have to be fancy. Mine's not. I'm not a fancy kinda gal :)
And so, I am starting a Send Along with this quilt. For Kate. For Ryker and Amanda. For us all.
To enter the Send Along:
Let's all get together and no something kind for a mother who we do not know, but can surely understand.
