Dylan Rose was born sleeping on November 9, 2010. She was the infant daughter of Brad and Angie Matthiesen.
Even though Dylan's eyes never opened, she opened the eyes
of a group of ladies from Midkiff and St. Lawrence, Texas. It was through the passing of this angel that these ladies became aware of the great need of grief support for bereaved couples that
experience the loss of a child.
...and so began ABC Ministry on March 1, 2011.
Angel baby creations (handmade):
Gowns, booties, bonnets
Fetal demise pouches (for babies too small to dress)
Other items provided:
Early Miscarriage "Butterfly Bags"
Baby toys (for pictures with baby)
White rosebuds (for pictures)
HUG bears (for mothers to hold when leaving the hospital)
Plaster (for imprints of baby's hands & feet)
Small New Testament Bibles
ABC Ministry also provides ANGEL BEARS
(at no charge).
These bears contain the actual "heartbeat" of an angel.
(Please see our ANGEL BEAR page for more info)
Cards – ABC sends Remembrance Cards to the parents on the 1st anniversary of
their angel’s death.
Most importantly, ABC provides PRAYER. While the women are creating their personal item for the ministry, they pray for the family who will be receiving it.
The best and the most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.
