Hattie’s Hope

Hattie Story Image

When little Hattie was in the NICU, her mom Ambria found comfort in little things that made life seem normal. She dressed Hattie in cute bows and matching blankets. Everyone would stop by to see what her little fashionista was wearing. When Hattie passed away at just 10 weeks old, Ambria started an organization that donates handmade hair bows and receiving blankets to babies in the NICU to provide their parents with the same comfort and simple joy.
