"I received your package today. Oh my, it made me cry how beautiful the layettes are. How can I thank you for this great work and including us as part of your family of hospitals. God bless the makers of these layettes for their gift of love and compassion." —Rosemary

"I appreciate having beautiful coordinated layettes and keepsakes in all the appropriate sizes to offer to each patient and her family as these sets do not exist to be purchased on short notice." —L & D Nurse

"I can't believe that someone made this with such thought, care and perfect workmanship. It has taken a lot of worry off me to see my baby boy cared for so respectfully." —Anonymous Parent

"I am on the front line providing care to patients so I witness the impact of this ministry on families. The layettes and keepsakes are given to families from every walk of life who find themselves thrust unexpectedly into one of life’s most distressing situations—the death of their baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth. They rarely have any warning or time to prepare. The layettes serve a vital need and the keepsakes are treasured by the families for a lifetime."
—Bonnie Tincher, RNC, CNS, MSN (Now a board member of Angel Layettes)

"I care for families who have experienced the loss of an infant through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death and can provide an appropriately sized, beautifully crafted layette created by caring volunteers. They are so touched and relieved. Infant clothing in these small sizes is not readily available in the retail market. The layettes provide the family with treasured keepsakes that acknowledges and honors the infant’s life." —Grateful Labor & Delivery Nurse

"Angel Layettes add a beautiful lasting memory to a life event that is permeated with profound grief." —Susan S., R.N.

"Our box arrived! It felt like Christmas! I opened each one. Absolutely beautiful! I am so happy to have them. I like how they velcro in the front. It will make handling these little ones easier. I especially like the lavender sleeves as a keepsake 'box.' I will prepare them to hand out with all of the information the parents will need. I know they will be so appreciated. I will keep you up to date on their use and outcomes. Your ladies do beautiful work. Please share with them our appreciation."
—Amy G., RN

Make a Donation or Memorial Gift to Angel Layettes

Through your gifts to Angel Layettes, you become instrumental in providing comfort at the moment a family is experiencing overwhelming grief. In addition, your gift carries that comfort into the future as the memory of the child's life is preserved and cherished.

With your help, Angel Layettes will be there to bring honor, dignity, and love as the parents hold their child for the first and last time. The pain of losing a child should not be compounded by having to go on a fruitless search for burial garments appropriate in both size and style.

You see, hospitals are not prepared to meet the needs of a family suffering this type of loss. Budget restraints and logistic issues make it impossible for them to have on hand a supply of garments suited for this need. In addition, stores specializing in baby clothing do not have sizes or styles of clothing that are suitable for the fragile bodies of the little angels.

Each day in hospitals across America families are faced with the devastating loss of a child. It is the goal of Angel Layettes to be there in every case to meet this critical need, but the fact of the matter is that we depend on regular support from generous donors like yourself. That is why we ask you to prayerfully consider supporting Angel Layettes today.
