My causes

I am currently involved in various causes. The first is a petition to regulate, license, and treat midwives as we would any other health professional.

I have created a Loss Survey as I am rather curious as to what the statistics really say!

Lastly, I am getting started creating birth announcements and birth/death announcements. Announcements are free for bereaved parents. Any proceeds will go towards purchasing casting kits for bereavement programs at local hospitals. My hope is to be able to spread this ministry out and provide these to even more hospitals around the country, and possibly overseas. I would also like to have kits on hand for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Bereavement Photographers. If you are looking for any other type of announcement, Drop me a line and I will work with you. Contact me for more info !

Just an idea

Since I want so badly to be able to donate these impression kits to the hospital, I have to find a way to purchase them. My idea is to create a website offering announcement cards. Since they are hard to find, I would like to do loss ones. I know that one of the hard things for me was that there weren't any little things to do that you normally would. Would it be too morbid to maybe do up It's a Boy or It's a Girl congratulation cards?? I would have to add something to make them sweet. I've thought of buying myself something that says It's a Girl.

Yesterday Mary sent me a sign! It was a tiny white feather that literally just fell from the sky. What makes it even neater is that yesterday was the three month mark. It was on my mind all day.

It's neat when God sends little blessings, like the feather falling from the sky on the 3 month anniversary, to remind you that He is there and that He cares about you.

I think the anounncement card idea is a good one : ) I'm sure there is a way that you can announce a baby's birth, in spite of their death without it being morbid. There life deserves to be recognized.
