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.")
