My 1st daughter Carly was born 12 weeks early weighing only 13 ounces and 10 inches long. She lived in the neonatal intensive care unit for 4 months before passing away from a heart defect on 3/9/08. In her memory I have started a clothing drive to collect preemie sized clothing to donate to the families at the NICU how have sick babies. Please look at my blog and see how you can help. Even if you can't help personally please pass along the information to everyone you know.

Oh yeah I'm Rachel by the way. I'm 27 and only have 2 angel babies. We hope to start TTC again sometime later in the year and start the adoption process by March.

Hi Rachel,
I've seen your blogs as links from Kayleigh's website. I'm so sad for your family. Are you collecting onesies for the hospital where you were, or more generally for nicus around the country?
