Preemie store

I had noted in an earlier blog how I wanted to get a sweater and some tights for Carleigh from The Preemie Store to finish off her burial outfit. Well, I had a very generous person get me a gift certificate for the website so that I could get those things. Thank you Wendy P. and her family-John, Charles, and Charlotte! I was quite surprised to receive such a gift and it was very kind.

I looked online at the site for the tights and sweater but didn't see what I wanted so I called Pat, the owner. Pat was very, very nice! She is giving me the sweater and the tights for what the gift certificate was and free shipping. The sweater alone would cost more than the gift certificate because a mom from another country made it by hand. I was touched by her thoughtfulness! Pat sent me an email of 3 different sweaters to choose from and below is the one I chose. It got shipped yesterday!

You have such a wonderful group of friends! I love how people have stepped up to help you and Anthony out. It reminds me of all the good that is left in the world after all. I do believe you have been blessed, dear Holly! LoL!

Beautiful sweater.

I'm Misty. I found out at 23 weeks along, that our baby boy, has Anencephaly. I will have a scheduled section the beginning of May, full term. How are you holding up? Do you find yourself feeling anxious, as I do? I'll be thinking of you. It's comforting, yet sorrowful, to find another walking the same road as I.
