An inspiration . . .

Isn't it funny how you get sucked into these blogging groups? I have my adoptive/foster parenting blog circle, then I have my local's blog circle, then I stumbled upon this IVF blog circle. I began reading Mandy's blog when she lost her twin girls during week 19 of her pregnancy.

I have followed Mandy's story as she struggled to make sense of her world without her girls. I have become a regular reader who gets a little stressed if I don't see a blog post from her for a few days. You see, she is once again expecting. I began to pray for Mandy and her family as the new little one is formed within her. I recently decided to make little "Sherbert" a blanket and I crocheted the twins names into the corners with beads. I was so thrilled with the way it turned out.

I mailed it last week and Mandy blogged about it today. Go on over and take a peek and give Mandy some comment love!

Sheri,
What a beautiful gift! I've been reading her blog too and praying for her through this new pregnancy but I never would have thought to do something so beautiful and tangible for a stranger. You have me in tears. I am so blessed to have met you through our blogs. ~Kari

That is so nice that you did that. I'm going to go visit Mandys blog now.

I really can't thank you enough. Did I mention that I want to hold it ALL the time? B had to tell me to put it somewhere safe so Sherbie actually has something to hang onto. :) If it were just me, I would be sleeping with it!

You are an amazing woman, I'm so lucky to have 'met' you! :)

I am soooo pleased you like it Mandy! Sherbert will be one lucky pumpkin to have you two as parents and Karis and Addison looking after him/her.
