I won something!

Yes, I can't believe it, but I won a .... book!

My blog friend Bethany Kerr (from Happy to be Called Mommy) wrote this book about miscarriage. What it feels like. How much it hurts, physically and emotionally. The books contains her own testimony as well as those of so many others, what to say and what not to say, and pictures of her own baby. It is a book of encouragement; encouragement to grieve in this time of loss, and encouragement to heal. I loved every page of it.

When she finally received her printed copies, she had a giveaway on her blog and I won, here. It was the cutest way to draw the winners. Great idea, Bethany, and thank you so much Ian.

So what have I done this weekend? I read the book. Yep, cover to cover. It's a great book and I highly recommend it to anyone who has lost a baby by miscarriage or knows someone (close) who did. It brought back memories and I decided to write my own story/ies down within the next week or so. I am too emotional right now, but I wanted to get the word out. Hopefully it can help someone, as I only know how alone one can feel during that time.Be strong.

Here is a link to her blog post about the book and within her post, you can find a link to buy the book.

Thank you, Bethany
