Honoring Babyloss Mothers Project - Day Three




It's Day Three of our project! Did you read the letters from Day Two?

For this project, we'll be posting notes and letters to babyloss mothers, written by the friends and family who love them. Learn about it HERE. Each day, we'll be posting more of the letters we received for these beautiful mamas.

We will be accepting new letters up until Saturday, May 10th, if you'd like to write a letter to the special Babyloss Mother in your life.

To Jennifer Harris Dault, Mother to Benjamin Charles and Avelyn Grace
(Submitted by Paula Belousek)

Jennifer,
I am remembering you, Allyn, and your beautiful babies. You are an amazing mother and you have honored Benjamin and Avelyn well in your willingness to share your story and to minister to others out of your place of pain and loss. i am so grateful to have met you this winter and for the beautiful gift of the remembrance and communion service you planned for our children.
I pray our holy Mother would be close to you on this day and bring you comfort in knowing that she holds, cradles and rocks your little ones while you cannot. I hold hope with you for the day when you will see these little ones face to face. May our great Mother continue to hold you in the promise and hope that there is no where we can go that God is not.
Much love,
Paula

To Chantel Keller, Mother to Acheron
(Submitted by Sara Vogt)

I've never met Chantel, but Acheron's dad is how I know her, I took the death of Acheron personally because I have known his daddy for years. Chantel is a very strong woman, she of course has her hard days but she has her good days too. I want her to know that even though Acheron is gone, he's not forgotten and she's still his mommy, she will always be his mommy. She always has a kind word to say, and she loves talking about Acheron, which I love hearing about the little man. She has hope, she has unconditional love, and she's not letting his passing stop her from living her life. I'm thankful that I've made a new friend, even though the circumstances are sad, but as I tell her, we walk side by side, hand in hand, in this journey of grief. I will always be here for her, day or night when she needs a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen to her.

Hang in there Chantel! You're doing great. You're strong, you're beautiful!

Love always,
Sara

To Amanda Garcia de Paredes, Mother to Juliana Violet
(Submitted by Jennifer Shea)

Amanda is one of the most giving, caring and amazing women I know. As a social worker she devotes her life to helping others, especially children. Amanda was forced to do the hardest thing any mother needs to endure and this was to give her little angel Juliana Violet back. Her strength inspires me, and I smile every time her and Auggie honour Juliana's memory whether it be collecting supplies for the less fortunate or swimming with dolphins to remember milestones. Amanda you are loved and many are thinking of you today and always, and most importantly your little angel is smiling down on you. Xoxo

To Laurene Mercantini, Mother to Hunter Henry Hoffman
(Submitted by Erica Rauch)

Laurene, I know this Mother's Day will be so difficult for you without your precious Hunter. You are, and will always be his mommy. Hunter's life may have been short but he has touched so many lives in his brief time here. Hunter will never be forgotten.

Love,
Erica

To Margaret Applegate Pilon, Mother to Madelynn
(Submitted by Erica Rauch)

Margaret, this Mother's Day I honor you and your sweet angel Madelynn. I am so thankful for both you and Madelynn for being such an important part of my life and for helping me and so many other women along in their grief process. By helping others, you honor Madelynn and keep her memory alive.

Love,
Erica

To Stacey Nichols, Mother to Emma Grace
(Submitted by Erica Rauch)

Stacey,
This Mother's Day I think of you and your beautiful baby girl Emma Grace. Somehow, you and I and Emma and Avery were meant to be connected. We have a long journey ahead of us, but I'm thankful to have you to walk by my side so we can help each other through this journey. I wish you warm sunshine and loving thoughts of Emma this Mother's Day.

Love,
Erica

To Stacey Patterson Lauzon, Mother to Justin Case
(Submitted by Erica Rauch)

Stacey,
I will be thinking of you and your sweet baby boy Justin this Mother's Day. As you prepare to welcome a new life into this world, I know Justin is watching over you and guiding you along the way. He will always be your first born and will never be forgotten. I am thankful for your friendship as we navigate this grief process together.

Love,
Erica

To Tess McVey Mullan, Mother to Brayleigh Elizabeth
(Submitted by Erica Rauch)

Tess,
I will be thinking of you and Brayleigh this Mother's Day. I know your angel must be so proud of you and and the help you are providing others in Brayleigh's honor. You are amazing mother and Brayleigh will always be your bright shining star, guiding you along the way.

Love,
Erica

To Carly Marie Dudley, Mother to Christian

Carly,
While you don't know me personally and we live thousands of miles apart, I honor you this Mother's Day. I am so thankful for the beautiful work you do and the kindness you show others. The photo that you made of my daughter's name written in the sand with the sunset shining on Avery's name is invaluable to us. The photo hangs in our hallway and is a beautiful reminder of our baby girl. Project Heal has been a huge source of help and healing to me, and other babyloss moms, and for that I can't thank you enough. You have given us these beautiful blessings in memory of Christian. I hope this Mother's Day, you take some time out for yourself and that you have beautiful reminders of your son Christian. I wish you love and healing that you have provided so many mothers across the world.

Love,
Erica Rauch
