Thank you to our donors

We received this sweet note this morning. As sad as it is to us that others have to receive a Mamie's Poppy Plate, we are thankful when we hear how they might be helping the families who experience this loss.

Sarah, You have been on my mind a lot lately. We have used Mamie's Plates much too often here at Baptist. Yet I am so glad we have them. What a reminder of the tiny lives.........I drove to Cabot and gave a mom hers a few weeks ago. She was going to give her baby up for adoption. She has a 17 month old and a 4 year old. Then her tiny baby "Precious" died and was delivered at 3 lb 12 oz. Her nurse made the plate and the next week I called her at home. She wanted the plate and told me the baby's name. She cried when I handed it to her. She had a shadowbox on the living rm wall in this duplex on a lonely street. She wants to hang the plate next to the momentos of her baby. She wanted me to thank you for honoring her baby by your gift. Please pass this story on to the sweet families who donate to Mamie's. And know you are in my prayers for your baby you are carrying. I pray he will be healthy and beautiful and everything you dream of. Bless you, nancy nurse of SHARE at BHLR

If you have received a plate and would like to share your story you can email us @ If you want it to be a private message to Sarah just let her know and we will not post it.

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…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
