This is beautiful! That kid has a wonderful heart, and his dad is clearly raising him right.

But Marilyn, you need to issue a "tissue alert" before I read these!! :D

I'm with Sally, that made me cry, I felt so proud of that sweet young man, and so sad at the loss of his momma. What a cool gift for that nurse, to see that once, tiny little infant struggling to hang onto life, now so vibrant, sweet and good.

AWWWW! So sweet!

What a beautiful story, it brought tears to my eyes.

Yes, tissue alert would have been good. I balled! What a sweet, sweet story. Thank you for sharing that.

what a good and thoughtful young man.

March 25th, 2014, 02:28 AM
WOW. Yes on the tissue alert. We know in our hearts what we provide, but seeing it is such a blessing

This was an amazing story !! What a brilliant kid. His Father is so right to be proud, and his Mother would be smiling down on him. Such a sad yet uplifting story.

Wonderful story and his mom and dad have very good reason to be proud of him.

I'm going to forward it to a friend who told me she hasn't been quilting for quite awhile as there have been no new births in the family and everyone has a quilt or two, She can make many mini quilts from her stash for local hospitals NICU's.

Oh my gosh, you guys are laying some tearful stuff on us today. What a sweet kid and how wonderful that he's "paying it forward" as they say.

What a cool story about a very smart kid who knows the meaning of life itself. Thanks for sharing this, Marilyn!

Wow, serious tissue alert! What a wonderful story. A future forum member, maybe? ;)

Made me tear up, too...

Members of my quilting club regularly attends a large group that meets in a local church.... They make quilts for a hospital NICU, and PNICU.... I HAVEN't been able to attend, but plan to become active in it....

We also make lots of Project Linus quilts....

Yes.... We, as quilters, DO make a difference.....

Yes, a tissue alert would be in order. What a wonderful story.

What a wonderful segment!

What a great boy! Yup, I cried too. So sad about his mom.

I seldom tear up but this story did it for me. I think of all the little blankets I've made and don't know if they are being used for a dog bed (hope not) or left in the cupboard under all the other stuff of life. This story brings me hope that all that ripping and love and struggle has not been in vain. Thank you for posting!!

How touching. What a wonderful young man!

That was incredibly inspiring. I've pretty much decided that I like to make quilts. When I very quickly run out of people that I want to give them to, I will remember this story and recognize that even if I never get to meet a little recipient years later - making these quilts matters to someone, somewhere.

I just had a bad feeling when they were only interviewing the Dad - that maybe the mom hadn't survived the birth, but thankfully she obviously spent the short time she had to be a mom, being a good one. Both parents should definitely be proud of their son.

Wonderful heartwarming story. Thank you for sharing Marilyn.....

March 25th, 2014, 01:07 PM
Beautiful story........the boys dad has every right to be proud!

March 25th, 2014, 06:52 PM
Thank you for sharing. What a wonderful story. Must run now - no tissues in the sewing room and I can barely see the computer.

March 25th, 2014, 07:25 PM
A sad, beautiful and inspiring story all in one: definitely needed a tissue.

What a wonderful, heart-warming story.

What a wonderful story and what a great child.

I don't know what to say, I cried my eyes out. Jackson turned into such an amazing young man. His father has so much to be proud of. I know his mother is looking down on him and she is beaming with pride and saying, he is my son.
I'm not good with showing my feelings and I hope I didn't sound too corny but, this really hit me.
Marilyn, what you are doing is so wonderful, you should be proud of yourself too.

March 26th, 2014, 02:38 AM
Where are those darn tissues when you need them! A wonderful story.
