When we think of the little folk on St Patrick's Day, most of us picture a leprechaun. But not Suzanne and Ralph Regan.
They have your tiny bundle of joy in mind, because they were once in your position. Their daughter Jacqui was born prematurely to a world of tubes and incubators. It all seemed so horribly impersonal, unnecessarily harsh during a very stressful time.
As a talented dressmaker, Suzanne knew that things would appear so much better, if her little daughter was only in proper baby clothes. The wraps of fabric just weren't right. But most stores didn't stock any cute items small enough.
Suzanne made her own baby clothes. As a mother, she knew that the material had to be soft, and able to be opened frequently without disturbing her baby. She made beautiful, wonderful things for her little Jacqui, which made her feel like she was doing something to help as well. It worked. There was no longer a vulnerable mite in that incubator. Jacqui blossomed as a baby, a blessing, a beautiful daughter.
Jacqui Regan is an adult now. Married with children of her own. But her parents are still making the premature baby attire, providing joy and love for those following in their footsteps.
They have St Patrick's Day preemie clothes, so that your little one can wear the green this holiday and carry the luck of the Irish with them.
