Her gown must have taken one heck of a trip around the hospital, the mail system, the country and goodness knows anywhere else because it was mailed in early 2014 and didn't arrive back to us until mid-2015. So we have no idea where it went/ended up in the in between, but somewhere down the line it finally made it's way back to us.
We e-mailed her family about re-sending the gown and that is when we learned Lacey had passed away. We then created a special angel bear gown that had a monkey just for Lacey's family. Once they received it her mom called me and then e-mailed me as well about creating some special gowns for Christmas in honor of Lacey.
Collectively we came up with a unique embroidery design just for the project and then went to work on the gowns you can see below. We used up some more of our extra older-style gowns in both sizes and genders, with each one picked out by Lacey's mom as well.
