This is a blanket of mothers’ love. Given by a birth-grandmother to her daughter, the birth-mother. This brave birthmother wrapped her newborn girl in this blanket of love and gave her to her adoptive mother. So honored was this new mother with the miracle of life and love, she shared this girl, wrapped in love, with her new grandmother. She was christened in this blanket under the eyes of her godmother. This is a blanket tying together mothers of Western New York.
