Losing a child is an extremely painful experience for any loving parent. One Missouri couple has taken their pain and they’re using it to ease the pain for others who are going through the same thing.
According to KSHB.com, John Wright and his wife Diane are using donated wedding gowns to create smaller angel gowns for babies who pass away.
John gathers the wedding gowns and his wife then takes them and uses the material to create burial gowns.
“I’ve probably gotten 15 out of one dress,” Diane said. “But most of the time it’s closer to eight and I try to do the four different sizes,.”
She donates the gowns to local hospitals who then distribute the gowns to parents who lose newborn babies.
Diane and John say they’ve lost a child and they understand the pain these parents are going through. They recently lost a son who drowned during a military exercise.
If you have a wedding gown you would like to donate, you can send it to the address below:
Grandview United Methodist Church
