(WXIA)In the days and weeks after Lori Beth Blaney’s daughter died, she just wanted to hear her name.
“Her name was music to my ears because I didn’t hear it very often,” Blaney said. “So I loved it when someone said her name because she was constantly on my mind. “
Rachel died when Lori Beth was 8 months pregnant. Through their grief, she and her husband had to bury their daughter.
“He had to go to a baby store and buy an outfit to bury her in, he said that was one of the hardest things he ever had to do,” Blaney said.
As she healed, Lori Beth wanted to do something to help other families going through the same thing. But looking for somewhere to volunteer, she couldn’t find anyone.
“There was a hole there, and God had really laid it on my heart that it needed to be filled,” Blaney said.
