Just a small update

Some of you have added me as a favorite to your facebook page (thank you for your support) and have seen that I put updates on there once in a while. For those of you that are not on facebook I wanted to pass on an update that the weather is said to be bad today and tomorrow and the sidewalk names will have to be on hold for a few days. Please feel free to continue to send requests, just know there is a bit of a delay.

Also I'm not sure how much longer I'll physically be able to get down on hands and knees to write names since I am close to 9 months pregnant. (Im sorry I know this is not the news most of you want to hear but its so you understand why Im only able to do so much right now) Yesterday I had what I thought might be early labor pains and had to take it easy so no names were written yesterday. I'll do my best to write as many names as I can before baby is here. When baby does decide to arrive I will be taking a few weeks off though, I will post when this happens. Until then, keep the requests coming. I'm happy to remember our little ones.

Sending you parents lots of love!

Little Angels

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with the death of one small child Who does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,
So He picks a rosebud, before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but few
To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,
The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye." So when a little child departs, we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find. --~Author Unknown

You are forever loved and missed my sweet baby.

Thank you for your patience

I am new to the whole name request thing, so I am still getting used to the flow of how this works. I am also just starting to write names so I will experiment a little with it and see what looks best. I appreciate your patience while I find my groove. Add to the mix that I am a single mama to a toddler and VERY pregnant with a new babe and you will see that I dont have a whole lot of time so it may take a little bit of time before I can post your child's(ren) name. Again, thanks for understanding. I also wanted to add that I dont mind if you have specific requests to include things like hearts or flowers or whatever may remind you of your angel, but know that I am no artist. So I will try to accommodate all requests but if I'm just not able to draw something then I will do the next best thing.

Also I am very happy to see all the requests pouring in....well not happy in the sense that I know what you have been through, but happy that I have an opportunity to do something special for you. Having said that I find it very time consuming to reply with a personal message to every email. Know that I am very sorry to hear of your loss, I truly am. Each email makes me grieve for you and your child(ren). But at this time all I am able to reply with is a copy of your photo. And even then Im not sure how long I will be able to do that. Again, know that weather I reply with a photo or not I will post it on the blog, so please check for updates.

On a different note, I have been following the blogs of many baby lost parents and I know many of you are expecting again. So on behalf of all the rainbow babies out there this photo is for you:

After having my own rainbow baby, I know what all you parents have riding on this pregnancy and can relate to how you are feeling. May the rainbow help to brighten up the dark clouds you have encountered in your life.

(And for those of you that do not know what a rainbow baby is, I found this on another blog that put it beautifully:

"It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope.")

Welcome to my new blog!

As mentioned on my 'What This Blog is About' section, this blog is dedicated to parents that have lost a child at any stage of life. Weather it be a pregnancy loss, infant or child loss. I am honored that I will have the opportunity to write your dear child's(ren) name for you and help their memory live on.

What inspired me to do this for parents dealing with the loss of a child is losing my first child, a daughter, named Genesis. She was diagnosed with Anencephaly and was stillborn at about 21 weeks gestation. I had no idea how badly I wanted children till my only one was taken away from me. She forever changed my life. I have had many other parents write my baby's name for me and I cant tell you the comfort it has brought me. I hope I can bring you some comfort as well. (To the right you will see the buttons to other blogs that also write children's names for baby lost parents)

So in honor of my daughter the first name will be hers. (I think it's fitting since today is her birthday. She would have been 3.)

Name requests are now open!

Please follow my blog and add my button to your blog to spread the news to other bereaved parents the gift Im offering to them.
