People deal with tragedy in different ways. Soon after losing her precious baby Cooper, my friend's sister, Lucinda over at the inspiring luc ends, decided to use her creativity to honor her son and process her grief. Inspired by a friend who made a hundred dresses to honor her mother, she decided to knit and sew birds to honor her son, who they called birdy.
The hospital where her son was treated does 270 pediatric heart surgeries a year and Lucinda decided that she wanted to give every child a bird on the day of his or her surgery to let them and their families know that Cooper was watching over them, and that someone who has walked in their shoes was thinking of them.
she's invited others to participate in her project, so if you can knit or sew, go to her blog for the pattern and more information about joining Cooper's flock.
