I Love You, Baby Call

Note: I am not pregnant. I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea.

I've bounced this idea off of a few people and I'm still hoping I'm not totally out of line doing this for myself. (Part of me thinks this should be something someone else does ...like a baby shower... The other part of me thinks that people who really would like to be involved will get left out if anyone but me organizes this.)

Anyway, we've received a lot of e-mails, letters, phone calls, notes, and kind words that say how much they love our little one already. The support is overwhelming. We are so loved. Most of all, our little one is so loved.

I saw this idea on another blog a while ago. I didn't bookmark the page, but the idea stuck with me. (If anyone knows where this came from, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!)

I would love to make a blanket for Baby Call. With a piece of fabric from everyone who loves him/her already. It can be a piece of fabric from anything. Clothes, blankets, the fabric store, etc. This will be the blanket our little one comes home in. Our baby will be welcomed and wrapped in the love of all those who prayed and fasted and cried and hoped for his/her arrival.

This is a 2-part project, though. If you decide to send some fabric, please include a little note. I want to record the story behind each square in this blanket. I want your love to be tangible for our little one. I want our baby to know just how much love it took to bring him/her safely home. I want him/her to know that they were worth the wait.

I hope this came across the right way. Please be kind in the comments. This is something very dear to my heart.

If you'd like to be a part of this, please send a small piece of fabric (2"x2" or larger) to us. If you need our address, e-mail me at k.call.design{at}gmail{dot}com.

(And if you're sitting there wondering if it would be "weird" or "not your place" to send something, but you really want to, please do. It's all about love and support right now. Even if I don't know you at all, or have never met you in person, your support means everything to us.)
