Healing Through Hope

Blanket Set
The Healing Through Hope Campaign was created to help bring hope to families or individuals whom are suffering through a pregnancy or infant loss. I created this campaign in memory of my daughter Taylor. I make tiny blankets and donate them to the hospital that delivered my angel every year on her birthday. The Healing Through Hope Care packages are for families in need of hope.

I created the Healing Through Hope Campaign because of the horrible and indescribable experience I had after the loss of Taylor. I want to share with others what I found as my saving grace… HOPE!!!!

We lost Taylor at 21 weeks of pregnancy because my cervix was too weak to carry her. The hardest words to hear for parents-to-be are “we cannot do anything to save your baby”.  Taylor was my 12th loss but first birth (before Taylor I never got past the first trimester). My experiences after Taylor’s birth were excruciating. Sadly, the better of experiences was making burial arrangements. The Assistant Funeral Director knew how to make me feel like we were not talking about my baby’s arrangements he was sincere and cordial.

Hope is the only thing that got me through those struggling first three months. I had to regain hope for a happy future. Hope that God had more planned for me. Once I found a glimpse of that hope, I began to breathe a little easier. I was able to get through a day without crumbling into a non-functioning ball of goo. I decided I needed to do something to help others not have to go through the same agony of feeling alone.  

During the early stages of this campaign, I became unexpectantly and honestly unwantedly pregnant. I had found out at my pre-operation visit to have my Fallopian Tubes tied. I could not have an abortion (I had little hope this one would make it), I kept hearing that with God all things are possible. My husband and I had kept telling people that if we were meant to be parents God would make it possible and he did.

After losing a twin at nine weeks, I had a procedure to sew my cervix closed, I spent eight months in bed, weekly doctor visits, and shots to keep my hormone levels up, three weeks of hospitalization, and finally my beautiful Miracle Skyler was born healthy and perfect.

Hope even during my pregnancy is what kept me sane. I did not have an easy pregnancy between the stress of “is she going to make it”, morning my Taylor, and trying to keep my marriage together, hope was all I had at times. Hope kept me from going into a deep depression. Hope gave me a reason to wake up each day and try to be productive.

Hope is what I want to share with others who are suffering because where there is hope there is possibility. 
 Warm Wishes to You and Yours
