I am a fairly new grieving parent. It has been one month since I heard the words- there is no heartbeat. In efforts to help parents like me, I have been reading through blogs, forums, and support groups. Mostly to find solutions for myself. But one of my "solutions" to lessen this hurt that I carry with me, is to help others. If something I do will make you smile, or turn your day around. I'm going to do it. I will continue to do it.

The idea of creating birthday cards for angel babies sparked from something I read. It was along the lines of- after a month, everyone who isn't perhaps immediate family, will stop talking to you about your baby. They either do not want to bring it up and remind you, or they fear they may upset you. Maybe even some people think that it has been plenty of time for you to just "get over it". But we are parents. We don't forget our babies. We will not "just get over this". What they don't know is we appreciate hearing our baby's name. We love talking about our baby. It's our baby.

These cards were created to help celebrate a milestone. As bereaved parents, we didn't get the normal milestones. We didn't get all the firsts. First time crawling, walking, talking. But we still have birthdays! It may not be the happiest day for us, but even with grief there is room for some happy. On this very emotional day, I want you to have a concrete form of love. A gift of acknowledgment. You need all the love you can get on this particular day.

Nelda's Craft Room specializes in handmade greeting cards. She's also my aunt! This makes for a super special personalized item. Made with so much love. In our survey, we ask for your baby's name and something that reminds you of them- whether it be your nursery theme, comfort objects you have for yourself, a quote, bits of nature, etc. This helps us customize to your liking. I hope that you cherish this enough to add to your baby's memory box or shadow frame. I hope that it brings you so much joy.
