Candle Light Ceremony

A few Sunday's back it was a big day for Taylor and I. Mamie was honored at church for All Saint's Day along with the other people who have passed away this year. We were invited to the front of the church to light a candle for her. It was very special. That night St. Vincent's put on their annual candle light service for all the babies lost. We had tons of friends and family come and support us. The service was beautiful with songs of hope as well as a mom who told her story of her loss. I was so amazed by her strength. I hope one day I can do the same. After Carolyn finished speaking they began naming off the babies that have died this year along with later years. When Lynette began the month of June my heart began to pound. We walked to the front to light a candle for Mamie. I felt like I was about to fall to the floor. I never imagined we would be there lighting a candle for our precious baby. She is supposed to be here with us. Taylor and I then walked to the Christmas tree to select an ornament from the tree. We decided on a heart shaped frame. It will be perfect to put her picture in for our tree. The whole night was very emotional. I couldn't believe how many names were called. Amanda was so sweet to take some pictures for me. You know me I have to have everything documented.I want to thank Lynette and St. Vincent's for such a special night. I also want to thank everyone who could be there to support us.- Sarah

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
