Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

Holiday Ornament Swap

Jumping in at the last minute here with news of this holiday ornament swap for babyloss parents. Jenni, of Demeter's Feet, is organizing this swap of handmade holiday ornaments, made by a babyloss parent for a babyloss parent.

Here's what Jenni wrote on the website, Remembering Together Swap: "Sometimes our “in real life” people don’t understand how much extra TLC we need at this season, or they fail to remember our missing children at those holiday gatherings. The gift-giving, child-centric nature of Christmas and Hanukkah can be particularly painful when you are missing a little one. Marking the end of the year and the passage of time without your baby can also be incredibly difficult. For some, the spiritual or religious elements of this season can be trying, when struggling with faith in the face of tragedy.

Our ornament swap is one way for babyloss families to give and receive support during this tough time of year."

Head on over to her site by THIS Monday, November 15th, to sign up to receive, and create, an ornament.
