Thank you for sharing your truly personal and special story with us. I, too, had an extreme preemie - born at 27 weeks, under 2 lbs.; and spend 10 weeks in the hospital. He's a miraculous little one, with no signs that he was ever premature, soon to turn 8, the day after Christmas. My true blessing in life (as is my 2nd child) - thanks again for the inspirational story. I will work on my card layout this weekend with their special gifts in mind. My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family.

It's nice to see so many supportive people on this website. I really wanted to participate in this challenge. I've been married 9 years, but can't have children. I love all 6 of my nieces and nephews though. I truly appreciate everyone sharing a piece of their lives. Here's my card.

Now THIS is why I love this site so much!!

Jen, you always give us so many awesome challenges -- and you could have just thrown on one quick idea to get us going while you deal with this most intimate day in your life... but - no - you share with all of us the meaning of this day and come up with the most amazing idea for a challenge to inspire us all to be better people!! WOW!! and then, the rest of you could just go to work doing your cards and getting them posted but - no - everyone takes the time to share their hugs and thoughts for Jen and others, share their own stories, and again -- inspire us all to be better people!!

Wow - this is an amazing site with a bunch of amazing people!!

Yeah!!

thank you for sharing about your sons jen. i'm so sorry for your loss. this challenge was an inspiration. i combined it with this week's sketch challenge, and dry embossing which i've never done. it was a real labor of love and as i worked on it i knew it would go to someone pretty special--my mom.

the photo doesn't show the card very well. it looks much prettier IRL. thanks for looking.
