My 100th Post

It's been such a short time, I can't believe that I have made 100 posts on this blog already. It has been therapeutic, to say the least. I have felt love and support from so many of you. I have noticed that a lot of other angel mommies do little giveaways on their blogs. In honor of my 100th post, I decided to steal the idea ;-)
I will leave this "open" for one week, at that time, I will take the names of everyone that comments and put them in Dayne's Chuck E Cheese hat (he asked to help.) The name I draw will win a special gift from Alexandra.
If the winner is an angel mommy, she will get to choose one of two personalized necklaces from Kristi at Bugaboo Jewelry.
If the winner is not an angel mommy she will receive a piece of jewelry from fjj_creations, a store that makes awareness jewelry. The piece will be for pregnancy and infant loss awareness.

For the angel mommies, from here are your choices:

For the women that aren't angel mommies, from, here are your choices:

Good luck to everyone, I hope that whoever wins, loves their extra special gift from Alexandra!


  1. I am so happy that having your blog and posting has helped you. 100 Posts, that was quick! Keeping you in my prayers. I do not want to be entered in the contest. Actually I recently won one recently. I have a post coming next week on For Your Tears. Please give it to a babylost mother. Hugs

  2. WOW 100 posts?! That's great. I'm glad it's been healing for you and I can't wait til I'm at 100 posts! I'd love to see how things have changed (or not) within that time period. Thinking of you and Alexandra always.

  10. Hi Melissa,

    I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate the raw beauty in your posts. I started reading your blog just days before I was due to have my son, and my heart ached for you. I have read every single post since then. Your boldness in writing your feelings has caused many mothers to stop and remember to not take life for granted. Thank you for sharing your story, and please know that your precious little angel baby will not be forgotten by myself, and many others.


  11. Melissa,

    I came across your blog recently and agree with the poster above. The honest way you write about things we are thinking but not always sure who we should tell out loud to. You have given me so many "YES!" moments that have happened to me (only child, tell classmates). It is nice to read real live stories about how our losses affect our family members. Thank you! Paige

  12. Thanks for sharing the jewelry ideas, I've been looking for something like that.
