Emma and Taylor

Here's a heartwrenching story:

I have received several emails asking for my address for the purpose of sending flannel for our traveling baby quilts, but today I received the first fabric in the mail.

It is in honor of conjoined twin girls. Emma and Taylor shared a heart. It's a beautiful metaphor, but the logistics of sharing a heart are quite a bit more complicated. This past August, at three years old, they underwent sugery to qualify them for heart transplants.

Neither one of them survived the surgery.


This fabric was donated on behalf of the twins' mother, Mandy, by her sister-in-law, Sara.

Blue and purple were Emma and Taylor's favorite color.

This post goes out in memoriam to honor:

Emma and Taylor Bailey

Born: September 2o, 2006

Died: August 10, 2010

Where do we find the words to say how full of sorrow our hearts are when we hear of a mother's loss of her babies? it must be a heavenly language.
So kind of Sara to honor Emma and Taylor and their mommy.

still working on mine... really, I think this is the hardest thing I've ever written - you might just get flannel with no explanation.
