Since September 2009, Angel Home, in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, India has been the home to 5 beautiful children; Nitesh Kumar, Savithra, Yesu Mathi, Suganthi & Santhia. Some of these children came from dysfunctional families while others have been orphaned.
We are also, going to have a list of things we would like to send to the kids, in the box with the pillows. So stay tuned for more information on how you can help Angel Home.
These precious children need to feel the love of God, and the hope there is in Jesus Christ.

Pictured above is my little girl "A". Her bear "Gabrielle" is sick and she made a prayer pillow for the bear using fabric letters I had dropped that day.
My other little girl "L" was looking at a blog with me about a little girl named Lucy yesterday. I asked her what should we do for Lucy since she is very sick. "L" said, "Make her a hospital gown and pillow."
My girls at 5 years old are "getting" that Heartfelt Couture helps sick children feel better.
I am not saying this because I am "The World's Greatest Mom". I am really an average at best mom. My house is a mess, I can get frustrated very easily, we don't eat 100% organic. I never intended to be a stay at home mom, and sometimes I go into my room, shut the door and scream into my pillow. Why am I tell you this? Because I am not perfect. I am normal.
The one thing I want my girls to learn from me is giving. I want it to be second nature to them. We live in a selfish, me driven world, and I struggle with this daily. I want them to rise up and be an example of kindness and a giving heart.
On my fridge we have our family verse,
"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35
I truly believe if we can teach our children to be givers then God's kingdom will grow faster than we ever thought possible. This is only 1/3 of the reason I do Heartfelt Couture. Maybe I will blog more about the other two reasons later!

The New Year will bring some new faces to Heartfelt Couture. The board of directors will be more involved and HC will no longer we a solo effort on my part. I am super excited for a little help! I have been running on fumes and God is giving me the help I need. I was only able to do 2 gown deliveries to Cooks Children's Hospital in 2010. But I am hoping that in 2011 I will be able to do 2 at Cooks Children's Hospital and 2 at Medical City Dallas Children's Hospital. Having help will make this possible.
Here at Heartfelt Couture we hope you have a Happy New Year!
