(Originally aired May 24, 2018) Guest: Diane Dione, Founder and Executive Director of Angel Gowns Foundation (angelgownsbydiane.org) When Diane Dione’s daughter lost a baby who only lived one day, part of the heartbreak was having to shop for a dress to bury the tiny girl in. They nearly didn’t find anything small enough for her, and the trauma of those hours spent shopping in the happy, bubbly world of baby clothes stuck with Dione. So she turned her personal tragedy into a blessing for others with her non-profit “Angel Gowns,” where she and 300-some volunteers transform donated wedding dresses into tiny burial gowns that are given to parents who have lost a baby.
