This site is in honor of our baby girl, Emma Lillian. It is our way of paying it forward and honoring our Angel.

Back in August I was feeling very overwhelmed at how I was going to accomplish my goal of 10 dresses. It seemed like a daunting task since I couldn't sew and I didn't have any supplies. I had a thought to ask a friend in my LDS ward if she could help me sew a dress for Emma. I wanted at least one dress sewn by me. After our discussion we decided to make it into a girls night. That led to two girl's night since we had so many people wanting to help and so many supplies that were donated. I unfortunately didn't have my camera on the first night but we had 6 ladies come and help us sew and we got 5 dresses done. The 2nd girls night we 8 people come and we finished 8 dresses for a total of 14 dresses. It was so fun to get together with friends and to honor my sweet baby. It truly meant a lot to me to have them come and spend time to honor Emma. I also had a college roommate who wanted to help and her whole family helped make dresses. She gave me 3 of them and she told me they have 30 cut out ready to sew. I was shocked she had so many done. I was so thrilled to be able to take 6 dresses to the mortuary, 7 to the hospital and still have 3 in my stash at home to replenish the supplies. I truly hope they don't get used often but I am glad they will be there to ease the burden of a family who was blessed with an angel. Thank you to everyone who helped me accomplish this goal. It would have not happened without all of you so THANK YOU!!
