"When I looked down to see the spots—pink and too bright and red—covering the stark, white soft paper my soul plummeted into the water below me with a splash.
Death is so quick, and grief is the price for such love." [Read full excerpt].
In honor of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month, we are hosting a few giveaways on Instagram through the month of October.
This week, Tuesday through Thursday, a giveaway with The Knotted Nest will be live. Bethany is giving away a custom necklace with or without the heart bar — you can see our little heart bar in honor of the baby we lost. Winner will receive their custom necklace and a signed copy of This Undeserved Life. You can enter to win beginning tomorrow on my Instagram.
We are also running a contest to win:
- 8x10 canvas of either quote pictured below
- an additional copy of This Undeserved Life, signed
- a 20 minute call with me to talk about being stuck in your grief or pain and how to get unstuck (can be for you or also as a gift)
- $15 coffee card, because we all know a little treat coffee helps most days
Each year, approximately a million pregnancies in the United States end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of the newborn child. (source).
The reality is, we all know at least one person who has experienced this tragic loss. This Undeserved Life is the absolute best gift to send that friend, letting them know you're thinking of them and remembering their little one(s).
Be sure you've signed up to be a part of my email community — you never know what you'll see and not see on social media. If you want to ensure you see each of these giveaways posted each week, join my community and you'll have a reminder when they're live.
It's such an honor walking alongside each of you during these pain-filled realities. Our journeys are never the same, not usually easy, but we can all relate on a number of levels when we choose to be vulnerably honest.
Thank you for joining me and helping me live a fuller life.
