Jordan Whitaker’s Eagle Scout Project for Birth Mothers!
Jordan wanted to make matching quilts for birth mothers and adoptees to share as a way to remember each other. The adoption process can be very stressful and emotional. These quilts could help to heal the emotional loss experienced by the birth mothers as they choose a better life for their children by placing them for adoption. Later in life as the adoptees get older their quilt can serve as a way to connect with their birth mother and know of the love she has for them. Adoption agencies often don’t have the funds to purchase gifts like these.
Jordan held a sewing night on April 6th, 2018 for volunteers to help make the quilts. 51 people participated that night. We completed 61 quilts.
