There is nothing more vulnerable than a small baby, and no one more fearful than parents of a newborn who is struggling. We hope that the little things we make provide the families they are given to some comfort during an extremely difficult time.
To provide a piece of comfort and tenderness to infants staying in the neo-natal intensive care unit and their families during a time of immense stress.

Onward . . .
This lovely bit of graphic design is now hanging at Starbucks waiting for other neighbourhood mommies to decide to make a difference.
As the creator of williamGEORGE products, I am constantly looking for ways to create things of meaning for others.
The GracieJane Project is named for my niece who came into this world at 37 weeks, but only 3lbs 14oz. While she spent a very short time in a neo-natal unit, she was and continues to be a strong and healthy girl.
As a the mother of a healthy from the start almost 4 year old, and new baby, I can't imagine the fear that must go with having a child in medical distress.
It is my hope that The GracieJane Project will bring a little comfort to families in an uncertain time.
