These Magical Lovies were created with love by the group Threads of Love keepsake since May 2012
Words (main body of layout):
When I need inspiration. I look to this little ziplock that holds oh so much. I had never heard of Lovies nor their magic until my Baby Boy was born at 750 grams and 12.25 inches long at 24 weeks gestation. We had a 5 1/2 month stay in NICU which at times was touch and go and I never wanted to leave his side.
When I went to go back to work from maternity leave, my biggest fear was that my Baby Boy would be left alone for longer then ever. One the NICU nurses told me here take these home and sleep with it and bring it to him and we will put it under his little arm because it will give him the sense you are always around. Every other day we would rotate them.
When my son came home so did these loves. I place them back in the original bag they came in. The blanket they are wrapped snuggled in is one of the blankets that he use to lay on for so many days.
When I need to have that extra magic of an inspiration or a day of having my son with me. I will place them in my purse and take them with me on my day so I have my son with me and know that with inspiration, belief and determination even things believed to not be obtainable are reachable because your heart and soul and true belief can move mountains.
These little cloth hand stitched items came into my life during a very difficult time and helped to bring some form of balance and relaxation and now they continue to balance and inspiration. Their magic is more than anyone could know.
I am truly grateful for the person who took the time to sew these items for my little micro-preemie and me because they sewed a forever bond that no words could begin to describe.
