First of all, this is not a sponsored post, this is something near and dear to my heart that I know many families have struggled with and would love some closure and something tangible for their angels above.
In January, a friend of mine who has also suffered pregnancy loss of two sweet angels, posted a picture of a necklace with a card. I messaged her about it and found out that there was a non-profit organization called Held Your Whole Life that is making these necklaces and keychains for families who have babies who never took a breath here on Earth. The necklaces are made for free and you only pay a $3.00 shipping fee. You can also donate to the organization so that they can continue to make more necklaces for more families struggling with the loss of their babies.
I immediately jumped all over this. I had to have one. I needed something tangible, something that I could keep close to my heart (because that is where those babies live now). I was lucky enough to make the waitlist for February after only one try and elated when my necklace arrived. I also ordered Jason the keychain version as well, which he loves. I will tell you that I set my alarm for the date listed on the website and had my Paypal ready to go for ordering. I wanted the best chance to make the list and I nailed it! I suggest doing the same if you are interested in this.
Held Your Whole Life is an amazing organization, providing families with something to remember their loved ones when often times these little angels are forgotten. As a mother of 2 angels, I never forget. These two are always on my heart and as time passes I find it easier to state that I actually have 4 children, it is just that two are in heaven. It is something that we should all talk about and support each other with. Pregnancy loss is NOT easy, it should NOT be something to be ashamed of. You created life and although it was only with you for a short time, it was a part of you and you held their whole life. What an amazing gift.
My necklace came yesterday, I have NOT taken it off. I feel a bit more whole. I hope that my friends, family and readers that have suffered the loss of a baby can find that wholeness as well and I hope that you check out Held Your Whole Life on Facebook and their webpage.
