I just purchased 5 of the dresses! I have been watching your blog for a while waiting to snatch some up for our girls! I know that every time they wear them, we will think of your sweet Cora! I am so glad we were able to do a small part in helping her playground out! Thanks again for your faith and sharing it with us!

With a granddaughter due in May, I have been checking Cora's everyday, many times a day. Finally, I was able to purchase two dresses and 4 burp cloths. I have told a lot of people about Cora and the playground. I am honor to be able to help and will think of sweet little Cora every time we use one of our purchases. God Bless You for your determination and time. We have fallen in love with little Cora and have been blessed by her and your faith.

where do you get your fabrics? I live in nashville Tn area and love your choices... could you write about where you get them. (sidenote) i forwarded your blog to a friend who had lost her daughter in a car accident about 9 years ago, thought she could maybe send you a note from a mom who understands, she was driving,(someone ran a red light), then i saw your video of the funeral and you played the steven curtis chapman song. he wrote that for families he knew who lost a child, her child was one of them he wrote it for. erin would have been 18 this past january. they had a daughter (5) who lived and have a son and have adopted 2 little girls from china through steven's shaohannah's hope.. God has been good to them. They feel tremendously blessed, but miss their Erin. I am so sorry for your loss of Cora and think of you often. You and your husband are amazing.

Hi! I follow your blog daily, and have been keeping you in my prayers. I love the fabrics you ladies choose....but I was SO unlucky; have been checking the store front a million times this week, and then I was busy with our girls this afternoon and I missed out!!!!! When will the next dresses be available? Will you PLEASE take an order? I REALLY want to order a dress for a baby present as well as two for my daughters. I have tried to write you several times on Etsy, but haven't heard back.
As a sister in Christ, I am deeply moved by your sharing and honesty is all you are going through. I will be honored to meet you one day in eternity.....

Hope to hear back from you on Etsy,

I'm so glad that your store is so popular! I get LOTS of compliments on my daughter Rowan's Cora dress and it is a gift to share your story. Are you still accepting donations for Cora's Playground? I was wondering if you had met your goal yet. I hope that your store is bringing you some joy- keep it up as long as it is fun for you! With all those great fabrics it makes me want to learn how to sew!! Praying always!

I, of course, was too late again. And I desperately want one of those dresses. For many reasons. One because I think my daughter would looks so stinkin' cute in it. Two, I want to make a contribution to Cora's playground. And three, to honor her memory. I hope I am faster when they come around again!

Thinking of you!

I have been following your blog since your sweet Cora went into the hospital - I found your site through little Kayleigh's site. I pray for your family very often and check in to see how you are doing.

I love your Cora dresses and I hope to get one if I'm lucky! I'm too late this time, but maybe the next time. I would love to purchase one for my daughter and everytime she wears it we will think of precious Cora. She has touched my heart.

The dresses are some of the most precious I have ever seen -- I love the style and patterns. You just can't find them anywhere else. So, hopefully next time I will get lucky and log on at just the right time! :)

God Bless you and I can't wait to see pictures of the finished playground one day.

Thank you for sharing your most precious little girl with the world.

I just wanted you to know that I'm thinking about you guys this weekend! I know you're missing Cora. Holidays are hard. I just wanted to share a verse with you. Matthew 28:6 says "He is not here, he has risen, just as he said." Jesus foretold the fact that he will die and come back to life. He fulfilled that promise already. But he also promised the "in the twinkling of an eye" He is going to return. I'm praying that the promise of His return will comfort your hearts and bring peace to your weary souls this weekend. I'm longing for His return too! What a glorious day that will be!
P.S. The dresses sold out too quickly again! I hope Grammy feels like making some more :)
