Hope From Emma's Heart: An Organization to Honor HLHS Babies

Hope From Emma’s Heart

Family, Friends, & Prayer Warriors:

We have been truly blessed to have so many wonderful family and friends supporting us every step of the way of Emma’s journey.  Whether we needed food, laundry done, supplies, bows J, encouragement, or especially prayers, you all were there.  However, there are many families that do not have that support.

We would like to begin early with Emma in teaching her how to give to those in need, so we are starting an organization called: Hope From Emma’s Heart.  This organization will collect items to put in care packages for babies in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit in Dallas with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. 

How can you help?  We will be collecting the following items to put in care packages for the HLHS babies.  All items must be new!

1.    Blankets (receiving) for boys and girls
2.   Newborn socks for boys and girls
3.   Johnson & Johnson Baby Bedtime Lotion and Body Wash (15 fl oz)
4.   Wash cloths for boys and girls
5.   Pink or blue gift bags (medium size)
6.   Pink or blue baby mittens
7.   Walmart or Target Gift Cards
8.   Money for special bows/headbands for the little girls and caps for the little boys       
that we are having made!  (We are going to have special bows made for the girls and caps made for the boys, so if you want to help with this then monetary donation would be the best route)

Each care package will include a special note about Emma and the love and support we have been shown.  We pray that this little package will be uplifting to the families as they go through the journey of mending their baby’s heart. 

If you would like to help it would be greatly appreciated.  This would be a great service-learning project for a school or business organizations J.  We will deliver the packages to Children’s Medical Center around Emma’s first birthday (October 4th).  I have a goal of 15 packages for girls and 15 packages for boys!  I have no doubt that our wonderful family and friends will help make this possible. 

Address to send monetary gifts or package items:
Sarah Stewart
13710 CR 3660
Allen, Ok 74825

If your school or business organization would like to collect items, we could possibly arrange a pick-up in or around Ada, Oklahoma City, or Dallas.

Thank you again,

Scott, Sarah, and Emma Stewart

We have been so blessed!  Please consider helping us shower other families with blessings to help celebrate Emma’s first birthday.


  1. So proud of you and Scott. I think this is a great idea to return the many blessings. Count me in. John and I would like to contribute to the baskets. Thank you for doing this. Emma is one very blessed little girl to have a mom and dad like ya'll. Cindy Aldridge

  2. What a wonderful idea!! I am going to share the blog and see if I can't get some people here to help as well.

  3. This is a fantastic way to teach Emma about sharing! She is surrounded with so much love and support and by so many prayers, which have all been a great part of Emma's will to fight and of her parents' strength and faith.

    Still, we have all seen the lonely parents and babies in the C-ICU, and we think your idea is sure to be of benefit to them in their time of need, while at the same time giving back some of the love that has surrounded you three constantly.

    May God bless the "Hope FROM Emma's Heart" project just as much as He has blessed this "Hope FOR Emma's Heart" blogspot. We love you 3 and miss you so much!

    Hugs from Nana, PaPa, and Auntie <3 <3 <3

  4. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this great giving. I am thrilled to be able to give something that may help ease the suffering of the families of these precious babies and hopefully show them that people do care. If you need a drop off place in Ada I would be glad to use my salon for that. Then we could get the packages to you. I am located on Mississippi and 14th if you choose to do this. Thank you.
