Kandis makes beautiful angel pins, and runs a local chapter of Threads of Love (Threads of Love is a non-profit sewing organization providing handmade memory keepsake items for families facing the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss.). Her chapter is called Isaiah's Chapter, after her son that she lost to Stillbirth in October 2008.
A very dear friend introduced me to a Charity called “Threads of Love” and I was instantly intrigued by the generosity of its members. I then found myself at a crossroads; I could either decide to mope about what had happened or I could get up and do something to try to derive some good from my sad situation. I decided that I would bring honor to Isaiah and do wonderful things in his name. In my heart I had this overwhelming feeling of certainty that I was destined to help this cause.
Kandis makes hats, blankets, burial gowns, and memory boxes. Her chapter is one of the few that makes memory boxes. She decorates them beautifully, knowing oh so well how important they are to the families that receive them. If you are lucky enough to receive one from your hospital, it is usually the one thing that you leave the hospital with. Our mission is to show parents love and compassion at a time when their personal pain is hard to endure and let them know that they are never alone.
