HANDS (Hope After Neonatal Death through Sharing) is a support group for parents who have suffered the death of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or SIDS death.
I learned of this organization from a thread at SCS. It is such a worthwhile and needed organization. Here are a few of the cards I am sending.
Here is a thank you copied and pasted from the thread thanking those that had already sent cards-
I send cards to bereaved families on the anniversary of their baby's death and at other difficult times through out the year to let the parents know that their child is loved and remembered. The bereaved parents who receive these cards are always touched by the kindness of others who donated their time and talent to make these items. Most of the time, these cards are kept for a life time, since there are so few things that are meant to honor and remember the babies who have died.
May God bless each and every one of you!

That is what I have been working on the last few days. Sending them off tomorrow.
Still haven't made it to the grocery store. Maybe later! :) Or sooner, the boys are fighting over the last orange in the fridge. Forget that we have bananas, grapes, cereal, a million other snacks. They both want the same stinkin' orange!
