Late Night

We had a really good night. Taylor came home and started working on the front yard while I got dinner ready. He kept yelling for me to come out to see all the turtles he was finding. We saw a baby turtle and he was high tailing it for cover. I have never seen a turtle move that fast. He was so cute. We invited my parents over for dinner and they arrived about the same time Alyson did. Just minutes after the timer went off on the oven. I have never timed dinner so perfectly. After dinner we all set out on the deck. After my parents went home Alyson and I decided to stay outside and keep talking. She is such an amazing person and is like a sister to me. We have known each other since 7th grade and the day we meet I knew we would be life long friends. While we were talking Taylor came out to see if I had checked my email lately. Our bereavement support group "Journey" is this Sunday. We had received an email of reminder and to let us know that there was a new couple that just had a stillborn................................. I am sitting here now because I can't sleep. My heart is hurting so bad. I know exactly what they are feeling. I don't even know them and I want to go to the hospital right now to hug them and cry with them. I feel sick to my stomach knowing the pain that they are feeling right now. Why does this happen? Why can't we have our babies? It just isn't fair! All I can do is pray....

  2. I found your blog through Kelly's and have been drawn to it since. I have not had a stillbirth but was so drawn to your story. The completely surreal thing is that one of my best friends is giving birth to her stillborn baby tonight. We have been with her at the hospital and it has been a true journey. Right after I received her phone call I had a strong urge to email you to see what we could do for her. I couldn't believe that you had just posted the saint charm necklace because she is catholic and I thought what a perfect charm for the charm bracelet that she wears daily. Thank you for sharing your beautiful story of Mamie. Saying special prayers for you and all of the families that have been affected by stillbirths.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah

My good friend Meredith also has her story with Miller in the magazine so be sure to pick one up if you can. I will get her article and post it here in a couple of days. - Sarah
