Holy Sews, a loving ministry at Our Lady of the Holy Souls Catholic Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, extends an invitation to you and your hospital to be recipients of our special gifts.
A young mother in our parish experienced the painful loss of a baby son at seventeen weeks gestation. She had the opportunity to hold her precious son Ryan, and remembers that the gown he was dressed and photographed in, while beautiful in appearance, was much too large. Following this experience, she made the decision to honor the tiniest of angels by making clothing specifically for infants who pass away during early second trimester. These babies are usually about 7-10 inches long and weigh only a few ounces—too small for even preemie size gowns.
Her act of generosity and love leads us to you.
Holy Sews is reaching out to all hospitals in Arkansas, offering to provide a special layette to their patients who have experienced such a loss. The layette would consist of a small fleece blanket, a hooded wrap with a matching tunic, a cap, a tiny teddy bear and a prayer card. The layettes are provided at no charge to the hospital. They are given from the hearts and loving hands of our volunteers who want to show grieving parents that God is faithful and that people (even people they don’t know) care about them and their babies.
The following businesses have partnered with Holy Sews in a fundraising effort.
A portion of the proceeds of sales made through the liks below will be donated to Holy Sews to help fund a documentary film!

I have shared the gowns and layettes with our OB nurses and we were all bowled over by the generosity of your group. The layettes are precious.
We have a average of 144 births a year at our small rural hospital. Thankfully 4 gowns will last a long time. Thanks again for including us.

Thank you so much for the layettes, they are GREAT. Everyone is talking about them. Hopefully these will last us for a long time.
I was on vacation last week, so that's why you have not heard from me. We really do appreciate this, we have been needing this size.
