In December 2011 I was on line chatting with a group of TTTS loss mom’s. We were all about 1-2 years removed from our loss; out of that dark hole of mourning but still missing our angels and wanting to do something to help. I forget the exact discussion now, but we all agreed that sending packages was a great and personal way to be there for the new moms and I volunteered to head up the group.
Our group is one year old now and has grown to about 29 active members and three members who donate their handiwork but do not send packages. We have members from all over the world and every possible T.T.T.S outcome.
Several members have been able to use their special talents for the good of the group such as designing our pamphlet or creating and donating hand made items to include in the packages.
No two packages are exactly alike. Each package is a labor of love put together and paid for by a TTTS parent and sent with a personal hand written card. We try to establish a relationship with the person we are sending to so they know they have a friend to talk to whenever they feel down or need to vent.
If you are interested in receiving a care package, please send your snail mail address, angel(s) name(s) and date(s) to me at Christina Russo Sporer on facebook or firstname.lastname@example.org. Put TTTS support team in the title of your e-mail.
If you are interested in donating a craft, book etc. to our team or becoming a package sender you can contact me at the same locations.
Jason held my hand as I lay on the table surrounded by Dr. Aroldi and several of his assistants. I couldn’t look at the screen or the needle so we changed the subject at talked about our favorite vacation destinations. I also spent a lot of time praying.
During these weeks I learned who my true friends were. People who I never expected to come through came to visit me. They brought home made meals and presents but most importantly they brought themselves. They gave of their time to care for me.
