A true story



There once was a baby girl born, just after the year became Spring. She had blonde hair and blue eyes and was not unpleasant to look at. But her mother didn't want her and she was taken away to another place to be cared for. She left the hospital in borrowed clothes and a worn out blanket and didn't even have a name to call her own. She was taken to an orphanage to be left alone, cold and hungry. A bottle was propped in her mouth to feed her, but soon she became to weak to eat and only had an Angel to watch over her and keep her alive. This girl was adopted at the age of two months and her life was saved, but what about the other babies who are unwanted and have nothing to call their own...no loving family, not even a warm blanket. Won't you please make or buy a blanket or an outfit of clothing and donate it to your local hospital and specify it is for a child who has been given away. Somehow, that child will feel the love and know, and that love will come back to you multiplied!
