Welcome Message

I’m so glad you’ve found My Very Own Angel; if you haven’t already check out our official website, please take the time to check it out at http://www.myveryownangel.org/ . My Very Own Angel is full of supportive resources and idea to assist women while carrying to term and post the loss of their angel. In addition to support for mothers MVOA also includes supportive resources and idea for everyone that is affected by pregnancy and infant loss, including fathers, grandparents, siblings, friends and family.

My Very Own Angel also heads off the 345 Teddy Bear Project, where every other year we donate 115 7” teddy bears wearing angel necklaces to various hospitals and prenatal diagnostic centers in sets of 3.

My Very Own Angel is also the original creator and designer of the official “I Have My Very Own Angel” T-Shirt and other soon to be announced keepsakes, to encourage women to be proud of their angels and make a statement to the world that often overlooks pregnancy and infant loss as something that “just happens”. The woman herself is a strong being to carry, birth, and take care of children, so what does that say about the unspoken and often forgotten women who suffer the loss of child against the natural order of death? It says that we have already climbed the hardest mountain, there is no sense in going back down, so climb up and keeping climbing doing good deeds, honoring your angel and practicing positive healing after such a tragic situation. Eventually you will reach the highest mountain, and you will hold your child in your arms again.

Thank you for taking the time to follow this blog and see the site, if you are a bereaved parent I can formally say I know how you feel, if you are a friend, family member, or an outsider looking in. Stay for a while check out some of the blogs we follow, view this situation from eyes of the families that have lost, I assure you, you will learn something and find a new sense of compassion.

When Life Happens - Vacation Notification

Vacation Notification

My family and I were originally scheduled for a month long vacation in March. At that time the angel store would be temporary closed for 4 weeks, in the last week my father has become ill and although the details of his illness are somewhat unknown, I’ve made the decision to go to California to be with him and my mother. Due to this unexpected change in events the angel store will be temporarily closed from Feb 1st thru March 31st. Emergency orders may be processed around my husband’s work schedule throughout the month of February. I will be taking a few CTT comfort packs to Ca with me in the event I come across a mother carrying to term.
The angel store will re-open March 31, 2010 in perfect time for any of you who are seeking a shirt for Mothers Day. The website will still be up and running and I will be updating the blog from California.
In May we will celebrate Vayden’s 1st year in Heaven, along with the many accomplishments he’s made in just one year. I will be hosting a 23 day giveaway, where I will be giving items away everyday from May 1st all the way up until Vayden’s 1st angelversary; I am very excited for May.
I apologize greatly for an inconvenience, but my family will always come first. Please keep my father in your prayers as we want a total and complete healing.

Thank you
