Spoken Word Blog Round Up

Here it is, my participation in Angie's spoken word blog round up! I was incredibly nervous to do this, but wanted to, especially today, they day River would be two and a half.

That's it! Forgive my pauses and reading from the screen, I am very glad I took part in this. The blog post I read was from March 6th, 2011 if you would like to see the pictures.

Friends and Fundraising

I think that the people that River brought into my life are the best people in the world. They have been there for me, shown me lots of love and most importantly...remembered my little boy.

Well, I have been behind, really really really behind in just about everything. I wanted to take a minute today to remember Julius. His mommy, Tiffany, and I got to meet this summer and we both battle with the loss of our babies to SIDS. She has been wonderful in supporting me. Thank you sweet friend, we are remembering your little boy with you.

Another dear friend's little girl, Ellie, is also on my mind. Tiffany and I also got to meet this summer. I really connect with her honesty and openness when it comes to the feelings. We share a lot about the things we have to deal with mothering an angel. I don't know what I would do without you ladies!

Also, I have been meaning to do this forever! A very kind person contacted me regarding helping her fundraise for the CJ Foundation. I had to get some reassurance since we all know how cruel people can be... but even more so we know there are individuals who prey on grieving families. She was completely willing to give me whatever I needed to help her out. So here goes, visit Amber at and she will donate 25% of her profits to the CJ Foundation until Halloween! I have a copy of a letter from this organization verifying Amber's desire to donate, if you have questions let me know and I can share that with you.

Lastly, I am very excited to go to Madison this weekend for the Forever In Our Hearts Remembrance Day and to see some lovely friends. I couldn't think of a better way to spend October 15th, remembering all of our babies with love. Thank you Alissa and Melissa for putting this together, I can't wait to see you!
