The response has been overwhelming to a call for wedding dresses that can be re-purposed as 'angel gowns' for babies who never make it home from the hospital.

WFAA launched a collection drive on Monday in the wake of a story broadcast last week about volunteers who are creating the gowns.

Donors are welcome to keep a section of their treasured heirloom for themselves.
