You may have noticed a new button in my sidebar.
It's a button I wish I wouldn't have to put up, for a reason that is very tragic. A few days ago my friends Sam and her husband Jason lost their daughter. Baby Alice was born still, just a few weeks shy of her due date.
Hopefully you can only imagine that kind of pain. There are few circumstances were there are no words and this is one of them. What can you say or do for someone in a situation like this? How can a community support a family that is grieving such a terrible loss?
Some friends and I have gathered and created a website in honor of Baby Alice. We're hoping to raise funds to help Jason and Sam pay for medical bills, funeral costs and the unexpected expenses that come with losing a baby.
I've got to say I'm pretty moved by the wonderful items, all donated in-kind, that are available for sale. Such cute stuff like this print by Yellow Heart Art, a springy infiniti scarf from Moriah Makes and this pretty headband from Gussy Sews. Everything from sea salt caramels to cooking classes are there-- something for everyone!
Join me in supporting and loving the Piettes through their grief. You can click on the button above or in my sidebar to visit the website.
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." -Psalm 139: 13
Funds that exceed Jason and Sam's needs will be donated to the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep organization, a wonderful company that is dear to my heart.
