"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."

How Can I Help?

VolunteersAngel Layettes is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization and as such depends heavily on the donation of time, resources and financial assistance from individuals, other organizations and sponsors.

Our newly remodeled headquarters (The Angel House), are nestled in the countryside just outside Tyler, Texas. All supplies are furnished through tax-deductible funding, and “state-of-the-art” equipment is available for the making of the layettes.

VolunteerSewing Volunteers

Every layette produced by Angel Layettes is destined for a very special purpose. With that in mind, they are made with only the finest materials. But that is only part of the story, for it is the love and compassion of the Angel Layettes' volunteers that truly make them special.

They choose each piece of fabric and lace, each little embellishment, with love. The hands that put them together are motivated by the awareness that the finished piece will bring honor to a baby, and comfort to a family.

Angel Layettes volunteers' do not know where their work will go, or who might need it. However, they do know that it will soon touch the body of a little one, and touch the hearts of families suffering grief.

Non-Sewing Volunteers

VolunteerQuite often we are asked if there are things that non-sewers can do as well. The answer is wholeheartedly—Yes! Over two-thirds of our production involves non-sewing, so there is a place for everyone.

There are opportunities such as cutting material, sorting, color coordinating, adding embellishments, counting, packing and much more.

All of these tasks are vital in the production and delivery of these special garments.
