After her wedding, Justi Underwood Bates wanted her wedding gown in pieces. 17 pieces, to be exact.
And don't worry, it's not because she hated the dress. Quite the opposite, actually.
Bates loved what her dress meant to her so much that she decided to pass along the feeling of love to people who need it most--mothers who give birth to babies who don't survive. She took to Facebook explaining just how she planned to do that.
"Today I received my wedding gown back," Bates wrote. "I sent it off earlier this year to be made into angel gowns for babies that don't make it home from the hospital."
Bates wrote that the gowns would be donated to the NICU at Vanderbilt.
"And as beautiful as they are I pray they are never needed," Bates wrote.
