A Very Special Post - Blogging for Babies

At the start of a new year, it's nice to look back at the previous year and reminisce. However, the previous year wasn't that great - for a lot of us on BOTB. I know my complaints are small compared to what some of those women have gone through.

Which brings me to a very special lady on BOTB - and her very special post. She issued a challenge a couple days ago, and although it has taken me a couple days, I'm stepping up to the plate.

Here is her original post. She pledged to donate a dollar to the March of Dimes for every comment she received in the next ten days. She also pledged to donate a dollar for every comment we receive if we do an additional blog post and link to it in her comment section.

So, here is mine! I will also donate a dollar for every comment I receive in the next ten days. I will also have to cap my donations - hopefully I will make it to my cap and have that problem though!

Even though I've only been a part of BOTB for a short time, I absolutely love having a place I can go and talk about (almost) anything, and get out the fears and questions that I have surrounding what will likely be the biggest challenge and joy of my life. In that short time, I have gotten to know (as well as you can through internet stalking) a group of wonderful women whose struggles have been heartbreaking, but have shown the greatest strength and grace I have seen. This one's for you.

Also for all the mommies I have known in real life and on The Nest who have lost beloved children. Some of them may not have had names, and some of them were here long enough to touch all of us (including her siblings!) so this is also for them!

What a great idea. I'm not on BOTB, but I do know of many others that have lost their little ones.
