I was on my way to the Ronald McDonald House early this morning as soon as I felt comfortable that morning work traffic would be off the roads.
The House is always warm and inviting and today was no exception. A new House, which will accommodate 65 families, is under construction adjacent to the current location. There is an excitement surrounding the opening of the new house. In 2015, 140 families were turned away, others waited for days, weeks and even a month before getting a room. With completion of the new House, they can say “Yes” to more families.
Today I had the honor and privilege to represent Logan Lap Quilters delivering 18 quilts and 6 crocheted “baby doll” blankets.
One of our Logan members crochets small doll sized blankets for those who bring their doll babies with them to the House or the hospital while receiving treatment.
What a surprise to hear that some of the crocheted baby doll blankets are going to the premature babies. Babies that have their weight measured in grams; precious lives that are so tiny.
And as quilters, we are allowed to be part of providing a small amount of comfort to the family of a hospitalized child.
Have you made a quilt for the Ronald McDonald House?
