Our annual donation drive was a wonderful success. We want to sincerely thank you to everyone who donated items, money, time and support! We already can’t wait for next year.
Losing a pregnancy is among one of the more difficult moments in one’s life. The loss is often placated by well meaning phrases of support, but people still feel alone. Thankfully, we live in a city with multiple resources. Including the Pregnancy Loss Organization. This organization has been providing support for neonatal loss for over 35 years.
They offer telephone peer counseling by highly trained volunteers who have themselves suffered a loss and have been counseled through their program. Following the one-on-one counseling, clients may join a support group. There is no fee for the counseling other than a voluntary donation of $75 for the support group. More about their program is on their website:www.preganancyloss.org.
Remember you are not alone.
Come join us for another year of giving. All proceeds will be going to Hour Children. We hope to see all of you there. Tell your friends, neighbors, families, and anyone else who will listen.

The Birth of Baby Hawk
I can’t believe 2 months have passed. But May 16th is a day I replay in my mind frequently; the day we added our 3rd little boy to the clan.
I always knew that birthing in a hospital would not be comfortable for me Continue reading “Hawk’s Birth Story”
It is Thursday and this is a shit storm. My blood pressure is high again and so I am having to go back to the hospital. Maybe I’ll be induced. Let’s see. I’m hysterical inside, but what am I going to do? Continue reading “Musa’s Birth Story”
