Additionally, one of our readers let us know that they decided to sponsor a child! That's HUGE! To be honest, Sean and I were practically giddy with the news that another child is being cared for and given food, water, an education, and being taught about Jesus. Were you thinking about sponsoring a child and didn't get a chance to? It's not too late! Click over and look through some of the faces of the children who are still waiting.
Now onto October's cause!
Alexandra's House. We choose this ministry in honor of our niece, Aubree, who passed away in August after a terminal diagnosis in the womb.
Alexandra's House is a local organization that helps parents continue pregnancies after a fatal diagnosis. They provide a number of services including: perinatal hospice support (for expected losses), infant loss support (for unexpected losses), support for parents who are pregnant after a loss, 3D sonograms, burial services, and a trip to Build-a-Bear for the surviving siblings. And that's only a short list of what this organization tries to offer to families who are in the midst of or are healing from infant loss.
For October, we are supporting this ministry that makes it possible for parents to have the support they need to continue carrying and loving their babies even when they know they will lose them. We hope you will partner with us by leaving lots of comments during the month so that we can send them a good-sized donation at the end!
Remember, for every comment left on a non-giveaway blog post during October, we will donate $0.10 to Alexandra's House!
Thank for being an all around awesome community! You guys bless me so much every day! :)
If you choose to sponsor a child through the link above, Compassion International will give our sponsored child an extra gift. We get nothing beyond that. :) For more info, please see my disclaimer page.
