October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month!
I'm excited to launch this campaign just in time for October which is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
@mybabyexisted is for those moms who maybe hesitant to share their miscarriage or pregnancy loss or may have never honored their babies in heaven. @mybabyexisted is for those moms to show that their babies did exist and now exist forever in their hearts and minds.
Check out mybabyexisted.com and download your Meme then post pictures to your social media of your baby bumps, babies, ultrasounds, or pregnancy tests, and use the hashtag #mybabyexisted. We want to honor our babies because they did exist! @mybabyexisted
This is 33! 1 year ago I started this blog to share my story of miscarriage, infant loss, and infertility and my journey being a special needs mom. I had a bright idea of starting a podcast so I picked up my mic and began recording. What a year chapter 32 has been. I have started ablog, recorded and published over 55 podcast episodes, started a community of Sisters in Loss, hosted a brunch, had my first speaking engagement for Sisters in Loss, opened my LLC, hosted my first course, and made new friends/Sisters for life. My group chat is live now y’all! Above all I truly feel like I’m walking in my purpose. I found me in chapter 32. It took me 5 years after the loss of my son Brandon Jr. to walk in my purpose. I’m thankful to God that this work chose me and I’m able to show other black women that their is purpose after loss.
Cheers to walking into 33 surrendering to God to use me as his vessel to go higher in my walk, my healing journey, and with this ministry of Sisters in Loss.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Pinky Promise Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. It was my first women's christian conference and first time attending Pinky Promise. I'm not affiliated with a local chapter, but I and many of my Sisters in Loss follow the founder, Heather Lindsey, on social media. So, when she announced at the beginning of the year that Sarah Jakes Roberts was the featured speaker I knew I wanted to attend.
We are 22 days into the May Journal Challenge.
Today's prompt is to write about 5 Qualities you love about yourself.
It’s Day 15 of the May Journal Challenge and today’s prompt is to journal what makes you nervous and why. I’m sharing my journal entry with you today and I hope you are open and honest in your journal writing.
I know you wish this day did not exist. You have lost your precious child, and your arms ache to hold them. Of all the days you especially want them on Mother’s Day. You want to celebrate that they did exist. You want to bask in how much they have grown up and not recall who they were. You want to see your baby alive and whole and want to smell that was only theirs. I know. I understand. I get it. You don’t want the flowers, gifts, or “Happy Mother’s Day” messages. You want your baby to be in your arms and say “hey mom, I love you.”
This journal challenge is for us to go from surviving to thriving after loss. It is for us to remember our Angel babies in Heaven during a month where most moms are recognized besides the grieving and bereaved mother. We want to honor you and acknowledge you on Mother's Day and all month long.
This 8 week From Grief to Foundation: Non-Profit Organization formation course is for you. We will break down your "Why" and develop the structure of your Non-profit. You will learn how to file for your 501(c)(3) status and understand how to sustain your non-profit after it is up and running.
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week April 22-28, 2018! I shared this line up of events on Instagram and wanted to make sure links were included on the blog.
It is Sisters in Loss Fertility Awareness Month!
One week is not enough to recognize those who have been diagnosed infertile and have yet to get pregnant, stay pregnant, and bring a baby home.
