Brides Are Turning Their Wedding Gowns Into Burial Gowns For Babies Who've Died In The NICU

The Angel Gown Program supports families who have lost a baby.

Instead of letting their wedding dresses gather dust for decades, some brides are donating them to the Angel Gown Program, where seamstresses will turn them into gowns for babies in the NICU who have died.

Grubbs said the garment itself is symbolic.

In 2014, the organization received more than 8,000 wedding gowns.

The stories Grubbs shared about the Angel Gown Program are incredibly moving.

Grubbs said the program gives parents permission to grieve openly and honor the life of their child.
