Wilhelm took on the project.
“She and her students did a wonderful job,” Muir said. “I am touched beyond words with the work they put into each one.”
Muir shared her story with Wilhelm’s class at PHS on the day she picked up the 72 stockings. She told the students that they were donating something so special to families they will not meet, babies who are not yet born, and may not survive
By sharing their story, she hopes to erase the taboo that surrounds still birth and infant death.
