I had the honor of participating in the launch team for Sarah Philpott’s new book, “Loved Baby: 31 Devotions Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child After Pregnancy Loss.” From the first page, this book touched a part of my heart that I had closed off since late 2015 – the part that I had “locked down” since I lost two of my own babies in April 2015 and November 2015.
The book features 31 chapters of stories, prayers, ideas, insights, and a “soul work” tips that the reader can use on their road of grieving and remembering their baby in Heaven. From chapters such as “Seeking Medical Answers” & “Words Do Hurt,” this book touched on a lot of subjects that severely affected me in my personal miscarriage experiences. It brought me some peace on my search to find answers as to why they happened and the hurtful words people use to describe my losses.
I wish would have had this book two years ago. It could have saved me a lot of pain. But, I’m glad that it made it’s way to me now. I am so happy to be a part of sending this out into the world. As part of my participation, I was given two copies of the book to giveaway. I gave the first copy to my local hospital, “The Foundation at CVPH” to give to a mom who has recently lost her baby or to pass around the local bereavement group. They were so happy to receive it and I was happy to give it to them too.
I would like to give the second copy away to another mom (or dad) in grief via my blog’s Facebook page. Whether you lost your sweet baby 37 years ago or yesterday, this book can help take some of the pain away. I’d like to ask those that think they could benefit from this book to please private message me either their name or the name of a friend/loved one that they’d like to see the book go to. I will collect all of the names and randomly choose a winner to send a copy to via USPS.
In honor of two babies that I lost – who I refer to as Bayley and Charlee – Bay was due on October 28th, 2015 and I got pregnant with Charlee around that time, I’d like to open the contest starting today and I will pick the winner on Saturday, October 28th – for my two sweet angels.
Please private message me with any questions or with your submissions. Please don’t feel that you have to tell me your full story – just a name (first/last) is acceptable. But, as a mom to two angel babies I am always receptive to hearing stories of other angels that have gone to Heaven too soon. <3
