Bracelet Update

So far we have had far more success with the Green Bean bracelets than I ever imagined!  It’s so wonderful to hear that lots of you would like your very own bracelet! 

Green Bean Bracelets 
Here are some highlights we’ve had over the past month:
Our first international order!  That’s right; the Green Beans are going global!  One of our faithful readers, Emma, purchased one all the way from Orkney,  Scotland!  
The Green Bean bracelet anklet!
My little niece, Avery, came up with the very bright idea to wear her Green Bean bracelet as an anklet.  I think she could be starting a new trend here!
Exceeded $150 in sales!
All of the proceeds from the Green Bean Bracelet sales will be donated to The March of Dimes.  I love how my Green Beans are able to (indirectly) help other babies who are in need through the bracelet sales!  It’s so cool!

I’d love to see pictures of YOU wearing your Green Bean Bracelets, so please email them to me [the @ greenfamily (dot) com].

    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.
