Let's Reach Out More...

"The path to success is to take massive, determined action."
Anthony Robbins
Robyn, a midwife and some of the LDS Young Women of the Glen Huon Ward, Hobart Australia Stake, Tasmania, Australia. The girls made patchwork baby quilts the size of nappies (diapers) and donated them to the Hobart Private Hospital, a maternity hospital in Hobart, to give to mothers of stillborn babies. 2 of our Laurels had moved on into RS but came along to the hospital. 1-11-08 While making the quilts, we realized that all the YW who were helping with the quilts had come from a home where at least one sibling had been lost through a miscarriage or stillbirth. The girls learned some valuable skills and were able to reach out in a small way to help someone grieving. Submitted by Greta S. Watson, YW President.

* These girls have shown me what compassionate service really is!

Wow! Thanks for sharing Dolly. Having been through a stillbirth, I know how much those mothers would cherish the service of these young women.

Truly inspirational.

This is wonderful. It is important to let these mothers know that there are people who care. m
