I love the Internet. We have a great relationship. It’s completely taken the place of TV in my life -I probably watch about 30 minutes of Television a week. (There’s just not much on that’s good anymore!) I read all my news and keep current by getting online (yo, Twitter).
*UPDATED* Thank you for sharing your stories of loss and hope. This is so much more than a contest for jewelry and I appreciate your comments. I started a thread in my BlogFrog community about our forever children. Please feel free to continue to encourage each other. The random winner is ~Alison~ Under the Big Oak Tree.
My Forever Child is graciously offering a 10% discount on their special jewelry to my readers who use the code THATFAMILY until May 31.
I tried to get pregnant with my first child for three long years.
I had a miscarriage.
I hated Mother’s Day for many years.
I know the pain of infertility and loss.
That’s why when My Forever Child contacted me about their unique ministry to Moms who have known loss, I knew I needed to share it with you.
My Forever Child creates personalized jewelry from the heart, rich with symbolism and meaning. Specializing in tangible reminders to honor and acknowledge our loved ones, while celebrating their life and the love they have bestowed to us. We believe that jewelry should tell a story and be meaningful for the wearer. Our personalized keepsakes are handcrafted upon order in our studio and customized to your specifications. Treasured memories will always be in your heart forever.
~Most of the pieces are handcrafted by Susan Mosquera, jewelry artisan and mother of 4 young children and 1 stillborn baby boy. Her journey of grief, healing, and hope was the inspiration for My Forever Child. Susan’s passion is to be able to help other’s through their life’s journeys with jewelry pieces meaningful for them.
~Custom engraved handprint jewelry and footprint jewelry from your child’s actual prints. This is a special and unique way to celebrate your child`s life, and to carry with you a treasured keepsake made from their creation!
