Baby Loss Community
"When a baby is born, it's a mother's instinct to protect the baby. When a baby dies, it's the mother's instinct to protect their memory." ~ Author Unknown.
My heart goes out to you in the warmest way, as you find yourself reading this blog entry. Whether you have suffered the loss of a pregnancy, an infant, or child - - the loss is unimaginable to those who have not walked in your shoes, I'm simply sorry for your hurt.
One thing I made for Isaac, was his baby board. Although you cannot clearly see below, the writing through his name reads "loved now and through all eternity". There was something very soothing to me to see his name displayed in our home, it was a simple expression of love and remembrance.
I am now offering a (smaller) similar product to those who have suffered a loss. The baby board is 100% custom made to your liking. This product is offered to you at a 20% discount, I only wish I could offer more. Your child's name will appear in the larger vinyl lettering, and you are able to choose the custom wording that will run through the middle of your child's name.
Some ideas for the custom wording are:
- beloved son, daughter, etc.
- fearfully and wonderfully made
- birth stats, example: April 8, 2009 4.16 lbs 16 inches
- for this child I prayed
- your child's nickname or a few words that describe him/her
Here are a couple examples of baby boards I've made:
The normal price for a baby board is $15.00, plus $7.00 shipping. As a bereaved parent, your discounted price is $12.00, plus $5.50 shipping. The size of a baby board is appx. 3.5 inches tall by 10 inches long. *12 inches long if needed for a longer name.
I wish I could offer these boards at no cost, but I am unable to. I'm hoping at some point in the future, we are able to lower the price more or through fund raising or donations, offer even more assistance to those who cannot afford these boards on their own. I know how important it is to be able to find affordable ways to remember those sweet ones that we have lost.
Please contact me should you be interested in a baby board. I am so deeply sorry for your loss:
