|Andrew is a precious little angel who
was born weighing only 1 pound 9 ounces...
He is a little fighter and his parents couldn't bear to leave his side
when he was born so he didn't have any clothes. Though I do not know this
family personally I have heard updates on his status regularly and just
had to make him something. Below are what I've made so far and others
have made things for him also. As of 12/14/00, little Andrew weighed 2
pounds, 2 ounces and is doing ok. If you know of any free micro-preemie
patterns online that could be used for this little angel, or if you know
of any support groups or assistance the family could benefit from please
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much and may God bless you and your family!
I would like to thank everyone who has emailed me regarding patterns
and information for little Andrew.
A Special Thank You to Carol Schwaderer Dickinson... she sent
a care package for Andrew which contained 19 different little outfits
ranging in size... all of which she lovingly made herself. I'm told
that the nurses changed the little fellow about 3 times a day just so
he could wear them all.
As of January 13, 2001 little Andrew is off of the ventilator and breathing
on his own...
he now weighs 3 pounds, 3 ounces.
Here's a photo of little Andrew... I'm not sure exactly how old he was
this photo or what he weighed at the time but you can see how tiny he
was in relationship to his Dad's hand.
Andrew celebrated his first
birthday in November, 2001!
Thanks for all of your thoughts & prayers for him and his family.
at him now... March 2002
I made this afghan for Brayden,
my cousin's little boy
who was born in September.
I've ended up making these for just about every baby I know :o)
