You should of arrived here from An'Jenic Gibsons Blog if not, please start at the beginning at Jessica's Blog! 

Today, October 15,  is National Miscarriage and Infant Loss Awareness Day. 

This hop was created for those that have either have Angel Babies, for those that suffered a devastating loss with the loss of their own child or someone in their life that has an Angel baby or lost a child.

15-20% of confirmed pregnancies end in miscarriage
The majority of miscarriages happen in the first trimester
Chromosomal Abnormalities are the most common reason for miscarriages and still births
90,000 children die annually before their first birthday
Nearly 2,500 babies are lost a year in the US due to SIDS
Nearly 30,000 babies are year are born stillborn. This number jumps to 4.5 million worldwide
Stillbirth occurs 10 times more frequently than SIDS
More babies die as a result of stillbirth than all other causes of infant death a year

The above reference statistics can be found on both of the following websites if you would like to find out more information: 

Too many people in this world grieve in silence over the loss of their children. This hop is meant to CELEBRATE them! You will see many different stories from the wonderful ladies in this hop. Some have themselves loss their beautiful babies, some had family members go through a loss, and some are here to show their support for the women who have gone through it.

The theme for this hop is any project centered around Angels, babies, pink and blue ribbons, condolence cards, tributes, and  layouts!

The "Your Own Kind Of Wonderful" stamp set is the prize for today's hop. To be eligible, please visit each blog and make sure to comment and follow along the way. Winners will be announced on the Craftin' and Stampin' blog on 10/18/14.

As you may know, Jessica has 4 angel babies. She was lucky enough to have her friend, Shell, create the beautiful badges on her sidebar that helps her remember her Angel babies ALWAYS! 

I am participating in this hop in honor of my mom and her angel baby and my sweet friend Stacey whom lost her angel baby last November.  When my mom lost her angel baby I was a Senior in High School and I remember it to this day.  Her sadness and pain, she wasn't to far along but I still remember not even knowing she was pregnant, we were in Lake Powell, we had to cut the trip short because mom was sick.  My dad pulled me to the side to explain to me what was happening.  It all happened so fast.  By the time we got home and got her to a doctor she had lost the baby.  It was sad in our home for quite awhile but my mom was and is strong and pulled through.  Even still for her to talk about it, it brings tears to her eyes.

My sweet friend Stacey was further along.  I remember getting the call from her, my heart fell to my stomach and my eyes filled with tears.  My heart broke for my dear friend.  I remember thinking no mother should ever have to go through something like this ever.  As her mom and dad rushed to get here from out of state, I did all that I could to try to comfort my sweet friend.  Pick up kids, get dinner, clean house whatever I could to help her and her family.  It was a heart wrenching watching this sweet family go through loosing their baby. Stacey and her family lost their Angel Baby sweet Ember Rose on November 7th 2013.  I made this necklace for my dear friend I found this quote HERE  and I knew that this was I was looking for! I love you sweet friend! One day you will hold your sweet angel baby once again. 

**I made this necklace with the saying "with brave wings she flies" I knew that this saying was perfect because Stacey's beautiful baby Ember flew with her angel wings back to heaven.
