The Cox Family

On the 5th May 2014 my husband and I did the hardest and saddest thing in our whole life. We bought our baby girl Annabelle into this world at just 20weeks and 3 days of age. When we made this heart wrenching decision, I thought to myself what will I dress her in? She only weighed 290 grams.

I was fortunate to have heard about Angel Gowns and contacted them to see if they could make a gown for my Angel Annabelle to sleep for eternity in.

Heather (Act Branch Manager) and Fiona (Founder and Manager) both contacted me to arrange to pick up my dress. Fiona came to my house and together we decided what part of my gown to use. I then delivered Annabelle and was able to spend time with her.

Her 2 big sisters, my husband and I got to make memories for us to hang on too. We took photos of our angel, in her gown so the world could see how beautiful she is, (I look at it in the way, she will never get her own wedding gown, so this is her version). Annabelle was dressed in her gown by our amazing funeral director and laid to rest in style, with grace and dignity.

I can't thank enough what these ladies enabled us to do for our Annabelle, their amazingly big hearts and love for what they do is mind-blowing. Thank you ladies and the Angel gown team for making our Annabelle this gown. Fiona was even so sweet as to make a replica gown for me to keep, it will be framed with Annabelle’s hand and foot moulds and take pride of place on our wall.

Please everyone get behind this amazing organisation, donate your wedding gowns, bridesmaids gowns, flower girl dresses, also cotton/thread, sewing needles, un-pickers, lace, ribbon and pre-paid postage bags so they can send gown to all the other beautiful Angel babies out there, it really makes a difference.

Thanks again to Angel Gowns Australia Family, with love Jaye, Matthew, Charlotte, Sophie and Annabelle Cox
