Hope Squared Quilt Giving





Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of delivering 75 of the Hope Squared quilts to the Salvation Army in Grand Rapids. These pictures are of the teen moms who live there. They are ages 13-17 and are either pregnant or a mom to a little one or two. Can you imagine the amount of support, love and hope they need to keep trying everyday? It is my prayer that these quilts will be a concrete symbol of hope and determination. They loved their quilts and rumor has it (from a Salvation Army employee) that this morning some of the girls were still wrapped in thier quilts!

Is there anything else we can do for the young moms-to-be?
