We share these "reviews" with you not to boast, but to give our volunteers every single thank you, shout out and kudos they deserve. We cannot and will not do what we do with out all of you. "Because a person's a person, no matter how small."
Thank you again for you recent donations. Everything is so exquisite and lovely and oh, so appreciated!!
Thank you all for thinking of us and the bereaved couples and families we care for here at Northwestern Memorial/Prentice Women’s Hospital. Your team graciously reached out to me via email in February and it felt like almost instantaneously there were multiple packets arriving from all of you. Your generosity and kindness is so humbling, awesome, and amazing! The same day one of your packages was received in my office, a set of the grey elephants and the blue stars and moons patterns were selected by bereaved parents as they this is what they selected for their twin boys to be wrapped in after delivery as they were memory making and following their time bathing their boys. Thanks to all of you and your volunteers this was a so special for this couple.
It was such a privilege to receive these handmade bereavement sets that are all so colorful, soft, beautiful, and made with such care and love. As you may very well know, many times couples are not prepared with that special something for their baby or babies to be covered with and as we have these loving items of caps, blankets, and tiny diapers, to offer from all of you, they are so relieved, touched, and grateful. It was so very kind of you to again remember our patients and their families we serve here at Northwestern Medicine. Thank you so very much again for your generosity and thoughtfulness and for sharing your creative sewing skills with our families. I know very well that many of your volunteers are giving back in honor of their babies that they have themselves lost and we keep all of you close to our hearts as your honor and remember your little ones. We will make the best use of these precious items and please know how well they are received and how appreciated they will always be!

I’m a nurse at (Army Hospital) involved with bereavement services. I would like to say thank you on behalf of our military families that suffer a loss. Currently we can not purchase bereavement items. So everything that we are able to give our military families comes in the form of donations from organizations like yours. So thank you!
My husband and I received a diaper set for our Ronan who was born sleeping. we keep them in his memory box always and every time I look at them I feel so loved by the individuals who take their time to create such beautiful things for families going through what I and so many others have.
I wish you could see mom's face when we show her that not only does her baby have a cloth diaper but that there is a matching one for her to keep......what you have done and created and make happen provides no small amount of comfort to the parents. Thank you.

I had a little brother pass away, as an angel baby this last summer. In the hospital my mom received a blanket and hat from your foundation. This little blanket and hat mean so much to my family. They have helped us keep little Robinson close in our hearts. I would like to help share this blessing with others going through a similar heartbreak as ours.
I had to lose my first baby boy at 23 weeks and 1 day. The work of your program gave me something tangible to hold and remember my sweet little boy by. Your mission helped me grieve and heal in ways I could have never imagined. Thank you so, so much for doing what you do.

Our team just went through the box and we are BLOWN AWAY! These layettes are PERFECT for our Bereavement needs. I am almost in tears…We love the little cards enclosed that provide comfort to parents. It’s just overwhelming. We cannot thank you enough!

I am the Perinatal Loss Specialist at Holy Redeemer Hospital in Meadowbrook, PA. I absolutely love putting your precious diapers on the babies that I dress. Parents love to see their baby with a beautiful diaper on and it serves as a lovely linking object to put in the memory box.
Holy Redeemer Hospital
My granddaughter was just born, Sunday, July 19, at 20 weeks. After my daughter gave birth, her doctor brought her daughter to her in the most preciously tiny diaper and blanket that we have ever seen. This has been a Godsend to her and has given her great comfort as she and her husband begin their journey to heal.

I just wanted to send a HUGE thank you for the order I received today! As always, the flannel bereavement sets are just amazing.
Thank you for the work you do!
Alaina Health - Minneapolis, MN
Thank you so so much! I hope you know how much people like you and your program are appreciated. I know that we are the ones that are in direct contact with the families that get these things, so you might not get to see the reaction that much, but just know that the families are so happy, thankful, and appreciative of the time, effort, and love that is put in all of this, right down to the little cloth diaper. :) When their world just came crashing down around them, it could be that little cloth diaper that will mean everything to them in the weeks to come. We couldn't make these horrible situations the best we possibly could without people like you. So THANK YOU!
IU North - Carmel, Indiana
We received your bereavement diaper sets in 2013. We have used the 2 small sets. They are such a precious gift to parents who experience the unexpected loss of a preterm baby. I believe it makes them feel cared for. The little sets help the staff as well. They often feel so helpless. It makes them feel good to be able to offer this gesture to the grieving parents.
Thank you so much for the unexpected patient and staff support.
William Bee Ririe Hospital
Thank you so much!! We treasure these donations and our parents do appreciate having the personal touch.
It’s just nice to know someone cares.
Nacagdoches Memorial Health
Just like you said, we received two shipments of the precious baby diapers awhile ago. My delay in writing to you was so staff had a chance to start using them and provide feedback.
"These are PERFECT..."
"Ahh, they are so cute..."
"That's what I need for a baby!"
"Oh my gosh, my Mother started to cry when she learned it was made just for her baby."
"Where did you find them, this is great... just what we need."
There has been a lot of recognition by families who can't find words and are just overwhelmed with everything. I know it means a lot to them because you see it in their eyes. In fact, I'm not sure what to say either - a simple gesture that has added so much value to our Precious Memories Program here at Maine Medical Center. I am so grateful to your group!
ET Family Birth Center and NICU
Maine Medical Center
Thank you so much for the beautiful diapers, hats, and blankets you make for babies. We received a donation of diapers and the families who’ve received them are always deeply touched by your thoughtfulness. I regularly hear comments like “Oh, I didn’t know anyone could make something so small!” or simply see a stream of tears accompanied by a tender smile as a mother gazes lovingly at her baby. The staff members are also grateful; it helps them to process the sadness as they dress a baby before posing him or her for sweet photos.
Oklahoma City, OK
Every time I place a teeny tears diaper on an angel, it moves the family to tears. I love that I can leave the diaper on the angel and place the one with your card into the memory box for the family.
Frames of Love
I wanted to thank you so very much for the tiny flannel bereavement diaper sets that we received. They are absolutely perfect! Our staff is always commenting that we do not have many supplies for our tiniest patients in these situations and these are exactly what we were needing! Your services are appreciated so very much and I know our patients will love these as well. Our colleagues from our sister hospital were by this morning and loved them as well - they may be contacting you!
Also, so very in love with your quote - "A person's a person, no matter how small" - Dr. Seuss.
Again, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts!
Women's Pavilion and Birthplace
The staff and I have had the wonderful opportunity to provide our families of loss with some of your amazing blankets, hats, and diapers... each crafted with such precision and care. Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts. You have no idea how much we (and nurses all over) appreciate your donations. Your beautiful donations help each and every one of our families grieve a little easier.

Thank you so much!! The diapers arrived yesterday. They are amazing and I’m sure will be a wonderful addition to the photos that I do for the families. I will be honored to tell them of your “gift” for their child. Thank you again, your thoughtfulness is and will be appreciated.
Just wanted to write an official thank you to you, your family & Teeny Tears for the cutest items to dress our poor babies in! A very experienced nurse who just joined us here at UCSF & found your hats / diapers etc. & was so impressed with their usefulness with our smallest babies.
UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital
I just received the diapers, blankets, and tunics. I am filled with joy right now!! I am excited to getting everything together. I know that whoever receives these beautiful items for their angel will love love them. It will bring joy in a time when it is scarce. Your organization is amazing. I appreciate each person who takes the time to remember our baby angels. I love everything, it is all so beautiful!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
In memory of Sylvia Edilia
I would like to thank you for all of your baby clothing. I am a volunteer perinatal loss doula with Hospice. The social worker there found your clothing. Our hospice has a group of people who sew but the clothing from you is so much better. The diapers bring tears to my eyes every time I pull out a pair. Previously we were fashioning tiny diapers out of 4X4s. It worked but was not beautiful.
You must know how much your gift of clothing touches the hearts of the parents. It makes such a difference to them.

Thank you so much for following through with our order for more diapers and blankets. The items we received were each so perfectly sewn and assembled. Our families and staff appreciate having these unique and adorable items for our very special babies. In particular, I like to take the time to let them know that they are not alone, and that each unique diaper and blanket came with the memory of a precious baby who is loved and remembered just like theirs. It helps. Every compassionate thought and deed helps the healing begin. Thank you for all you do.

I just wanted to say thank you, I was forced to induce at 16 weeks so I received a box from the hospital. The diaper is honestly one of my favorite parts because someone made it out of the kindness of their heart. So thank you. <3
From - a mother to an angel
Thank you for the adorable diaper sets and tiny blanket wraps. We have never had these types of keepsakes here before. They are very unique and special. Our nurses and staff especially appreciate all of the different prints and colors provided. We are able to offer our patients a choice in how they would like to clothe their baby. It is a satisfying experience to watch a parent dress and wrap their baby in their first and last outfit of their choosing. Your donations have enabled our families a moment of peace amidst such extreme grief. Thank you for all that you do!
Sincerely - Memorial Med Center
I can’t thank you enough for your compassion and generosity to our hospital. I have loved dressing the babies in your beautiful, hand-crafted diapers and I can assure you that the families are so appreciative to have their babies dressed properly and lovingly. Moreover, they love taking the tiny diapers home in their Memory Boxes as a linking object to their baby. I always take a close-up photo of the baby’s diaper because it is just so darn cute!!
I hope that God will bless you and the other volunteers for giving of your hearts to love these precious babies.
Holy Redeemer Hospital
I'd like to sincerely thank you again for the service you provide. This is such a tragic event and we are very lucky to have wonderful people, like yourselves, supporting our efforts to care for our moms and angel babies.
Oh my goodness, I just received your package and it is amazing. What beautiful little blankets , diapers, hats and so well organized. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity to serve our families with extra care and compassion.

Regional Medical Center
What a wonderful service you supply. I’m sure that you don’t always hear the stories of how your efforts touch lives, but I know that they do. We have so few demises, but when we can dress these little ones, we feel so much more compassionate. It helps both the parents and the nurses. Thank you!

As the bereavement coordinator I use the diapers for so many families in different ways. They make loss or a birth defect a "Teeny" bit better. Thanks again for all you do!
San Antonio Regional Hospital
The Teeny Tears layettes have been a wonderful addition to our perinatal palliative care program. Nurses and families express much appreciation for the kid-friendly patterns and pattern design that make dressing a bit easier.
St. John's Hospital
The package arrived today. The pictures you sent of her love-made layettes were beautiful… but when I opened then box — oh my goodness they are really really precious and beautiful. As a sewer myself I know how hard it is to make such tiny garments. She has done a beautiful job and Teeny Tears is really privileged to have her on their team. They are individually packaged and labeled which will insure no matter what the storage facilities are at the hospital that each one will be fresh for their angel family. Thank you so much for all of the work, resources, time and love that went into making this possible.
Long Island, New York
I just wanted to send a HUGE thank you from our unit for the amazing, beautiful donations we have received from your organization. They are such a blessing to our unit and our sweet babies and their parents. We appreciate your support so much! The mini-blankets, diapers and hats are just precious and so perfect for some of our early losses we care for. May God bless all the hands involved in the efforts to provide these for us!
Thank you again!!

My husband and I received a package of your diapers for our sweet baby Ophelia this year. Our daughter fit perfectly into your diapers and we were happy to have something that actually fit her tiny body.
An angel mother in Colorado
I was overwhelmed with emotions today as I received the amazing donations of tunics, blankets, diapers and hats! All I can think about is how many families will be able to see their angel babies all clothed and perfect. Thank you! Our hospital will be well stocked for a long time and it is all thanks to teeny tears! Keep doing what you are doing, you are blessing these families that are going through a hard hard time in their lives. You are all angels. Thank you so much again!
I have never seen such beautiful and creative work like yours before! I just received your package on Wednesday...WOW! Each little set of diapers war made with LOVE! Thank you so much for everything you sent!!! It brought such a warm feeling to all of us on our unit...you are amazing.

When doing parent interviews for my doctoral work, one of the moms made special note of the work you do, not just the beautiful and thoughtful teeny diapers, but the idea that someone sat at a sewing machine to create something so special for her, a grieving mom. She was very moved by your incredible program and so are we at Rush University.
Rush University Medical Center
I wanted to thank you for what you are doing for families who have lost babies. Three years ago today I lost my baby girl, Violet, when I was 5.5 months pregnant. One does not prepare for a situation like that - I would have had nothing to put on her, no blanket to wrap her in. Thanks to your organization, my hospital put her in a diaper and hat and wrapped her in a blanket. These items bring me so much comfort. Knowing they were with her then and I can cuddle with them now when I'm feeling really sad or having a hard time, like today on her third birthday, is invaluable. What you do is incredible and I just wanted to thank you!
I was recently admitted to woman's hospital after losing my identical twin girls at 17 weeks gestation. When they were born April 13th,15 I was amazed by all of the amazing gifts that had been donated to the hospital, including teeny tears diapers... I will never forget how touched I was by the tiny little diapers I got to hold and play with and most importantly it was the first and only diaper each of my girls will ever wear. I would like to be a part of teeny tears and make diapers for others who have to go through the tragedy I experienced...I didn't know anything like this existed until I had to experience it and all the little baby items were such an inspiration and a light amidst the tragedy. I will never forget the name of the child who the diapers I received were donated in honor of... I can't even describe how much the gifts meant to me.

We received our first shipment. I love them. Thank you so much. Those will go perfect with our boxes. God Bless you all.

I just started handling the bereavement program at my hospital, PIH Health Downey. My director just showed me the precious sets today that you sent us. First of all I am sorry for the person that started this that lost their little angel. What a blessing that you used your grief and turned into such a wonderful thing.

We love the quality of your donation to our facility. It puts a little smile on the grieving mother's face when they see how pretty and nicely dressed their baby looks, as one mom said 'she looks as though she is asleep.' Wonderful words to hear. Thanks again for your donations for our teeny demises; we really appreciate it and so do the grieving mothers.
Moreno Valley, California
I love to put the diapers on the babies and photograph their tiny body dressed in the specially sized diapers. I also love the products that you have for the tiniest of babies. I keep a supply of the very tiny ones in the Emergency Room for people that have miscarriages. It is so lovely to have something appropriate for their babies.
I have received mini blankets in the past with the stockinette hats and they are fantastic! The hats fit just right and they provide an excellent way to present the babies to the parents. Thank you so much in providing this service.
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you that have worked so hard to fill the needs of my Angel Closet. I have had 3 large requests from my local hospitals this week and the donations would not be possible without you all. I have been brought to tears as I have been packaging these sets first because of the love that has gone into each item. Second because I was blessed twice last year with precious things for my angels because of this group. My heart is full. I am so grateful for all of you and want you to know these Items are cherished by the families that receive them. Please know how grateful I am for all of your love and help. You are giving a gift that will be cherished forever. Thank you.
Love on Angel wings to all of you.

Thank you for all that you do. I lost my baby last week at 21 weeks and didn't know what to expect after delivery. It was very comforting to know that someone had taken the time to make my darling baby a diaper to cover him during our short time together. Thank you!
Everything is sooo beautiful and perfect! I received three boxes!!!! Amazing!!!
I used my first layette set for a 23 weeker this week and it was absolutely perfect.
Thank you so much! The difference it makes for our nurses and families is tremendous! Again, thank you so much! My heart is so full!
Thanks are not enough for providing the hospital & families the array of Teeny Tears diapers! Everyone to whom I have shown them have been moved to tears! I am so energized by your enthusiasm & positivity. There are few who can take the darkest hour & turn it into a positive! ...

I received the box of tiny blankets and hats! Thank you so very much! These are made with such love and I can see it in each little seam. They came from a sweet lady in Iowa.

I have been working in labor and delivery at UPMC Magee Women's Hospital for the last few months. I saw your diapers at the nurse's station as I left the room of a lovely women experiencing a fetal death. They were set in a lovely box with a card. I quickly figured out what they were for, and I just wanted to come here and let you know how touched I was at this gesture. Thank you for your efforts.
Our funeral home received a shipment of items from you all and we are so appreciative.
Thank you so much for making such heartfelt items for both the angel babies and their families. I love the special touch of providing 2 identical items one for the baby and one for the family. We know that this will be a comfort to them during this most difficult time.
Please let everyone know who makes these garments how much we appreciate them!
