After my step-daughter, Lauren, passed away in 2001, I began searching online for charities to donate to and found the internet to be very resourceful.  Unfortunately, I was unable to begin any projects at that time.  But, the desire still burned in my heart to use my talent to benefit others.

 

After the birth of my daughter, Leah Rose, in 2003, I felt even more strongly about making items to donate.  In particular, donating to the babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.  My daughter spent 10 days in the NICU when she was born and 16 days in the PICU after surgery in 2004.  My day was always brightened to find little gifts left in her bed.  It's the little things that mean so much.

 

On 1/3/06, I came across Bev's Country Cottage, and I decided that this was my opportunity to begin what I have yearned to do for so long.  I posted my pledge and by 4/24/06, I had exceeded my goal of 100 items.  I elected not to participate in 2007 and 2008 because I moved from Florida to Georgia and did not have the time or energy to crochet for a goal.  However, this year, in 2009, I have decided to return to Bev's Charity Challenge and again, work towards a goal, (which I have set very low... lol), and which I'm very confident that I will exceed the number of items made again.
