We entered the tree in the Florence, Oregon Annual Festival of Trees for the purpose of bringing public awareness to the need for Research for Babies born too soon. We also wanted our local community to be aware of our program.  We are now serving 256 hospitals in 38 states.

WELCOME OLIVER'S CLOSET

Northern Westchester Hospital of Mt. Kisco, New York, has an "OLIVER'S CLOSET", Infant Bereavement program. We have provided special memorial layettes donated in memory of OLIVER COHLAN HUGHES, born sleeping on January 25, 2013.  Appropriate clothing for infants born too soon brings comfort to their unprepared families that have only 'minutes' to say good-bye to their tiny family member. Thanks to Oliver's Grandmother and others for organizing this valuable service.

NEW ITEM: Miscarriage Buntings

This is a valuable tool requested by Emergency Rooms. This comes with a moisture resistant liner and a tiny heart charm that may easily be removed for a keepsake.  Most parents want to see this tiny lost pregnancy. This bunting provides dignity and comfort to the family. Most are crochet in white or variegated colors.

YEAR END TOTALS FOR 2014

Another eventful year of growth and support for our Volunteer Organization.

Adding 23 Hospitals from Alaska, and 10 more including 1 from Hawaii, the new total served: 249
Starting in 1992 with 6 layettes in Woodland CA, the grand total for the 38 states now served: 21,872

Highlights for 2014:

MARCH:  Lifetime TV aired the Real Life story of Sean and Kiley Hanish, writers producers of the movie, RETURN TO ZERO, staring Minnie Driver and Paul Aldenstein. 

APRIL:  After 18 years of making layettes in Salome, AZ, the volunteers had to end their annual contributions. Sadly the workshops there were unable to continue, mostly due to illnesses. Salome was the headquarters for the program from 1996 to 2004.

AUGUST:  Our satellite group in Alaska had to close doors due to health problems.  They had 23 hospitals served. Those hospitals will now be supplied as needed by the Oregon Headquarters.

MEMORIAL LAYETTES: During the year we dedicated 40 layettes to various hospitals donated in honor of babies born sleeping. This helps the grieving families not only to have something appropriate to dress their baby in but help to know they are not alone.
