We want to thank you for the sweet cap you made that was given to us right around this time last Monday; when we delivered our first child. We are so in love with our healthy, beautiful, baby girl, Aura. 
All the little things really made our delivery so special, including your handmade gift. 
What you ladies do is so sweet and that hat will be something we always hold on to and cherish. Best wishes,

Mary Ann Seely and other grandmas,
Thank you so much for the perfect cap for our little girl Bailey. 
She was born at 5lbs 8oz, 18.5 inches on 2/2/17. 
This is the only hat we have had that fits her little head. 
She was born small and hypothermic and 
the cap helped keep her warm through her first days, 
which she really needed. 
I think what you all do is amazing and we have told 
all of our friends and family about this great group. 
Thanks again,
Jason, Michelle and little Bailey

Sea Trail Grandmas Donate Hundreds of Items for NICU Patients
Sea Trail Grandmas visited the Betty H. Cameron Hospital in late October to donate fall outfits for babies in the NICU. The group donates sewn and crocheted items three times each year. The fall donation included pumpkin hats so the hospital's smallest patients had something special to wear on Halloween.
In total 27 volunteers from Sea Trail Plantation in Sunset Beach made 648 outfits, blankets and cuddler dolls for NICU patients.
NICU Manager Brandi Garris was on hand to thank the volunteers. "Our NICU parents are always so excited when they come in and see their baby in a special, hand-made outfit," she said. "This donation is truly appreciated."
Director of Volunteer Services Eileen McConville thanked the group for their 3,003 hours of service on this project. The NHRMC Auxiliary donated $1,000 to the Sea Trail Grandmas last year, and a part of that money was used to purchase a new sewing machine.
