I want to help!

So many BLMs have helped me through my grieving process, and I am so very grateful to all of them for what they have done.  Knowing that Bo is being remembered by others really helps me.

And, it has made me want to help.  I know that I cannot do much, but I want to support other BLMs as they have supported me.  I want to offer something to them that will help to soothe their hearts and souls.  But, I don't know what I can do.

So, I am looking for ways to helps other BLMs {but not just mommies, I want to help anyone who has suffered the loss of a pregnancy, baby, or child}.  If you have any ideas on how I can help, please let me know.  I really just want to offer my support and encouragement.

I am also looking for volunteering opportunities.  I know that volunteering is different in all areas, so I am researching this myself,  but if you have any links or suggestions, please leave a comment below.

Again, thank you to all of the wonderful BLMs who have been there for me!


Sidenote:  I have a camera.  It is nothing much, but I am in love with it, and I am in love with photography.  I was thinking of offering unique photographs.  I can add custom art and lettering to them with programs on my computer.  But, I see that so many people already offer this, that I am not sure if anyone would want one.


  1. I would want one! Just anything that has Alanna's name would work. ♥♥♥

    Dropped by to let you know that I have done Bo's ClayNames:
    Also on our Facebook page: (please like or leave a comment to let us know you've seen them)

    If there is anything else I can do, please let me know.

  2. Anna,

    Thank you so much! Bo's name and the photos are beautiful! I really appreciate it! And, I emailed you about the photo of Alanna's name! Can't wait to work on it for you! (:

  3. Kayla, I think it's wonderful that you want to help others in the babyloss community! A few weeks after Gabriel died, God placed Gabriel's Garden on my heart and I kinda just went with it. I knew it was the right choice for me because it not only brought comfort to others but it also helped me to heal.

    At first I was a little discouraged because so few people made requests, but now, just a few short months later, I have so many requests, I can't keep up and I've had to temporarily close requests. Obviously, it saddens me to know that so many people have lost children, but I'm glad I've found a little way to help ease the pain.

    Just know that no matter what you choose to do, nothing is too small. Whatever you do is sure to bring comfort and support to others and I hope that it provides you with healing as well <3

    P.S. I have a gallery with Gabriel's name written by myself and others... feel free to look through it if you need ideas or inspiration.

    Love to you <3

  4. Catherine,

    Thank you so much! I have looked through some of the gallery with Gabriel's name, and everything is so beautiful! I can only hope to bring some comfort and healing to other BLMs. That is my goal! Thanks again! Hugs and love to you as well!
