Something for Seth

(This is a "sticky" post. Scroll down for more.)

I wanted to be able to share a pretty flyer, etc but I'm behind the 8 ball yet again, and I don't want to not do this because I got hung up by my perfectionism!

Seth's 2nd birthday would be March 27th. I really wanted to do something to remember him this year (I didn't last year.. still too out of it, I think). So I'm doing a Donation Drive for our local Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). I figured out the other night, we had Seth for 200 days and he spent 86 of those in the hospital.. almost 80 in PICU. The nurses were a huge support and I want to somehow give back.

So on Saturday, March 27th, I'm taking supplies up to the PICU. I'm collecting the following:

Onesies, in all sizes
Socks, newborn to teen sizes
Pillow cases & Blankies
Bath & body type items for teens

If you would like to help donate "Something for Seth" (and I hope some of you will!), please leave a comment with contact info (or set up your profile so I can email back to you, see here if you don't know what I'm talking about.)

Thank you for your help! Please spread the word.

I would love to celebrate Seth and his precious time on this earth by donating. He continues to be a blessing.

Thank you for allowing others to take part. I'll talk to you Sunday about getting items to you.


Love to Kayleigh - she is such a quiet little sweetheart in SS.

Hi! I am new to your blog! I love what you are doing for your precious son for his 2nd birthday! What a fabulous idea. I have some onesies here that I would love to send to you, if you think they could get to you in time for the donation. We live in Tx. We have 4 daughters ages 5 and under. Our second born daughter, Liberty passed away when she was 5 months old in Oct. of 2007 - the day before my birthday. Her third birthday would be on May 24th - we are TRYING so hard to come up with a fundraiser we are calling "Libertys Wagons" - trying to raise money to buy the hospital wagons for the children to use. She spent 4 of her 5 months in the hospital..taking many wagon rides to and from procedures.

I was looking through your blog and saw that you were blessed to go to Disney! What a wonderful thing. We are planning our very first family vacation to Disney world this Oct - over the week of Liberty's angel day and my birthday. I am sure it will be totally bittersweet for us, but much needed at the same time. Any suggestions for 'special' things we might do to remember our precious girl?? I wanted to get her one of those bricks with her name on it - they aren't doing those right now. Thought about a butterfly release - not doing those right now either. So who know?!?!

Anyway. I am sorry that you too are walking this journey through grief - but you are doing a great job and i LOVE the idea that you have had for your baby's 2nd birthday. I am sure he is smiling down on you from heaven - full of pride for her precious family!

God bless you!
