There is a group here in New Orleans doing an amazing act of kindness. Because our infant mortality rate is so high (high number of teenage mothers) and frequently these children come from poverty, a group of ladies started making tiny gowns to bury the babies in. This may seem incredible but all too often the mother goes to the hospital with nothing to take the baby home in. When the baby is stillborn, they are buried in just a diaper. The gowns cost next to nothing made out of a tiny amount of fabric and decorated with bits of lace. But the emotional help to the mothers is immeasurable. If you know how to sew (even a beginner) and would like to do something like this in your town, contact your local charity hospital. They would probably welcome the kindness.
