Little Angels

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above

We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love

For no heartache compares with the death of a small child

Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild

Perhaps God tires of calling the aged of his fold,

So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but few

To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view

Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,

The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."

So when a little child departs, we who are left behind

Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

"Afghans for Angels" is an organization made up completely of volunteers who make and distribute baby blankets to local hospitals to give to parents who have suffered the loss of their infant through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death.

The loss of a child is a totally devastating event in a parents life. The founder of this Chapter has found that no parent is ever prepared for such a tragedy. When her granddaughter was taken only minutes after her birth, we realized that the parents of the child, more than ever in their lives, needed something to hold on to. While talking with the Medical Staff at the Hospital where her granddaughter was born and held for those precious few minutes, we have learned that there are many instances where babies are born to be angels. We have learned that caring and supportive services are of great importance to the parents during this difficult time. That is why the CHANDA REANN Chapter of AFGHANS FOR ANGELS was founded.

Our Afghans for Angels are placed lovingly around these infant angels when they are held by their families for the brief time in which bitter sweet hellos and sad good-byes are said. The parents are given these afghans to take home along with the few but precious memories of their little one. In their times of sorrow, just having something soft to hold is often comforting. Through our sources, we have learned that these grieving parents are quite touched by the fact that people they have never met cared enough to make something so beautiful and special for them and their child. It is our belief that anything that can be done to help these families, should be done.


"Afghans for Angels" is always looking for more volunteers to help create these blanket gifts. If you can knit, crochet, quilt, or creatively decorate purchased blankets, we would love to have your help! Most of all, we need your help to get the word out! The more volunteers we have, the more hospitals (and families) can benefit from our serivces. Please help us to help others.


Please make all blankets in baby colors.The average size of an "angel afghan" is about 2 foot square. Blankets are needed in every size from the tiny, preemie-sized 12 X 12 inch size all the way up to full size baby blankets. Any extra special touches are welcome. This is what will make each "angel afghan" so unique.
