I am the face... Giveaway

The statistics are astounding...1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. For me, 2 of my 5 did. And while everyone handles loss differently, it is often hard to comprehend when the feelings of elation crash into the realization that the precious expectations you once carried will never be rocked, cuddled, sang to, read to.

But those babies are stilled loved.

Today I want to honor my lost babies--as well as continue to raise awareness for miscarriage/pregnancy loss month--with a giveaway.

My good friend Amy over at Delightful Distractions/Amyj Delightful (BLOG. SHOP.) has made prints for Gracelyn, Jemma and Case. As I was brainstorming my photo/art collage for my office, I realized that I would love to have an Amy print for my other two precious babes. Without hesitation, Amy agreed to design a print for me...and one for the lucky winner of this giveaway. The winner will correspond with Amy in regards to the number of eggs needed in the nest...and of course the watermark will be removed :)

The verse I chose is all about comfort. God is the source of all comfort. He comforts us so that we can comfort others.

God doesn't ask that we remain silent in our hurts...we are asked to share so others can know the same comfort we receive.



The entry system is simple: one entry per person using Rafflecopter...use your facebook sign in or your email, it doesn't matter. You can enter for your own lost babes, or for another's. Win it to keep or give away. I will take entries until midnight Oct. 15 and will announce the winner Oct. 15, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

While it won't earn more entries, please share this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Spread the word, raise awareness and lend comfort.

May the Lord bless and keep you all in his loving care.
