I have had this source of sanity since March-ish of 2010, just after Sam passed away. It’s my online support group. I have checked in with that group almost every single day since I joined. We share about grief issues, marriage, friendships, pregnancy after loss, faith, and even things as trivial as recipes and preferred diaper brands. It’s all about life after loss, “moving forward” but never “moving on.” I have met one of these women in real life, and the rest I know only through cyberspace, but each member of our little private online group has become precious to me.
So when I learned I was pregnant with Ezra, my rainbow after the storm, I knew I wanted some sort of keepsake in connection with my support group. It just so happens that the group owner, Heidi, is an amazing seamstress and quilter. Requesting that quilt was one of the first of many steps of faith and hope that I took during my pregnancy with Ezra. I had so much hope that I would bring a healthy baby home. And, now, here he is playing on his biscuit quilt, made with love by Heidi.
I do believe Heidi is taking orders for her business currently. If you would like to see more of her beautiful creations and read about her sweet angel Jamie, visit her blog, Boys, Buttons, and Butterflies.
