Angel Baby Pins

A selection of Angel Baby Pins.
Sometimes we find our calling through our tragedy.  Angel Baby Pins is the newest part of a great mission of outreach and support.

Kandis is a fellow angel-mom.  Her son, Isaiah, was stillborn on October 23, 2008.  Trying to pull something positive from a nightmare, Kandis turned to her sewing machine, creating hats, blankets, and burial gowns for Threads of Love, a non-profit sewing organization that provides handmade memory keepsakes for families facing the loss of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss.  Isaiah's Chapter (which became official on Isaiah's first Heavenly birthday in 2009) also completes memory boxes, hosts a Day of Remembrance each October, and has a fundraising sale each Spring.  And, now, this amazing lady is also making pins.

New pin designs.
Kandis began making pins for pregnancy and infant loss awareness but has expanded her vision to include pins to raise awareness for other causes, as well.  A pin can be custom-made for anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one and for anyone wanting to raise awareness for a specific disease or ailment.

My custom pin.
But, Angel Baby Pins has another mission, too.  Kandis and her husband dream of adding a living child to their family and are saving the money from the sale of the pins to fund either an adoption or IVF.  A worthy cause in its own right.  So, take a look at Angel Baby Pins.  I know I can't wait for mine to arrive.
