Well, it’s been a WONDERFUL couple of months for Discovering Hope – Sharing the Journey of Healing After Miscarriage, Stillbirth or Infant Loss!
Since the book release in mid-January, more than 100 copies have been sold (or donated :)), word has spread through a few different ministry circles, and there has been an overflowing of positive feedback – Thank You!! – this really keeps me going.
People come up to me and tell me they’ve read my book or are reading my book, I attend a conference out of town and hear the same thing, and women want to know about the book, and I am so speechless – this is so strange to me, so wonderful, and so overwhelming all at the same time. A few have told me the tears flowed so freely as they read the book – I really get that – I cry every time I get past the first page (or the first line!).
This is why it took 10 years to finish it up. So much healing happened on that decade-long journey of writing/publishing Discovering Hope.
I have been connecting with a really cool lady in Northern Ontario who shares in the loss of wee ones, and has turned her grief into something amazing. She works with local medical personnel to distribute Hope Boxes to women/families who experience the loss of a baby.
She got this beautiful idea from Hope Mommies.
And she liked the suncatcher on the cover of Discovering Hope so much that she went ahead and asked her crafty friend to make up a prototype for their local hospital – to hang outside the rooms where families are experiencing stillbirth – just like the hospital did for us when Caleb was born.
What do you think?
Once again I am speechless… good thing I’m typing and not talking…
Honestly… I just love to watch God weave things together in His will.
This is just me… parenting Caleb as best I can… and watching my little boy bless others as only he can…
Thank you so much for blessing my heart Jenita!!!
