Diapers From Washington

My awesome sister Heather is where all this diaper business began. She originally introduced me to her friends Emily and Arah; since then, she has been all kinds of supportive as this idea has simmered in my heart and mind. In honor of Dex's birthday, she and her daughters made a whopping 96 diapers! 48 complete sets of diapers for 48 little angels gone too soon. Heather's two beautiful daughters heavily assisted in this great effort. Also, several ladies in their congregation enthusiastically offered their services when they learned what they were doing...

...even taking home stacks and stacks of diapers to turn and prep for finishing.

I am so touched by their love for our son and their enthusiasm for Teeny Tears and the families that will benefit from their sacrifice.

Thank you so much to the entire Beauchamp Family!



Utah Valley Regional Medical Center (UVRMC)

Our boys were born at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in November of 2008. Heather Walker, tender grief specialist extraordinaire, arrived at the hospital before the sun rose to care for our family in our time of shock and grief. She dressed our beautiful Dex in a handmade itsy bitsy blue gown and took photographs for us. To our great pleasure and surprise, she managed to get a few pictures of Dex in an isolette with his twin brother, Crew. They are the only photos we will ever have of them together in this life. We count these precious pictures and the gown he wore among our greatest family treasures.

Because of our experience that morning and throughout our 3-month NICU adventure, we have always wanted to donate to UVRMC. Today we make that personal promise a reality.

We sewed 28 tiny little boy diapers, 20 tiny little girl diapers, 14 large boy diapers and 14 large girl diapers
