earrings

One of my blog followers, Janet, makes custom jewelery and sent me earrings that she made in remembrance of my Green Beans.  It was a very generous offer, and I love what she made!  The earrings have the baby's birth stones; one garnet stone for Heidi (born on 1/31) and three amethyst stones for Lily, Paige, and Rylan (born 2/23).  You can see more of her jewelery on her website at www.ellascottjewels.etsy.com

Janet, thanks again for making these for me.  It's something to remember my babies by, and I will forever cherish them.

  7. They are very nice. I think jewelry is a beautiful way to show remembrance of our babies. When my son passed I had a necklace made (link below) by this woman who handstamps jewelry with whatever words and symbols you would like--names, initial, birthdates, etc. She has some beautiful examples on her website.

  10. I just noticed that you have my favorite bible verse posted on your blog. Doesn't that just totally sum up faith as it pertains to bad things that happen?

  11. I just wanted to tell you that I'm so glad you could make a praise comment after all that you have been through. You have been on my mind so much. I can't express how sad I've been for you but I'm glad to see you getting out with your husband and doing okay. I pray God blesses you immensely in the future. Ya'll are a beautiful couple!

  12. Lauren, I just wanted you to know that there are still people praying for you. I know (or imagine) you are being alone with your grief, and I respect that, just wanted to say "Still praying." The photos in the sidebar are so heartbreakingly beautiful. (((hugs & prayers)))

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
