Show and Tell: Angel

Show and Tell

For this week's Show and Tell, I'm showing the Pink Angel that I won from Kristin's giveaway at Once A Mother.  Kristin is one of the strongest women I know.  She lost her beautiful baby girl, Peyton to infant leukemia 28 days after she was born.  Once A Mother is a tribute to Peyton, and a mother's journey in life without her precious angel.  Please stop by her blog and say hi.

This beautiful angel that I won is made out of pink lace and must have been handmade because it is so delicate.  There is tulip in the middle of the angel's body.

I am adding this to my collection of Christmas ornaments.  I have a few different angel ornaments, but this one is special.  I will always think of Peyton, and remember the ALI (adoption, loss, infertility) community every year when we put up our Christmas tree.  As my Babe and I become parents in the future, whether it is through having our own biological children or adoption, we will never forget our infertility journey because infertility will always be a part of us.

Thanks Kristin for this beautiful pink angel.  I'm hoping that this may be a sign of a baby girl (pink!) in the future for us!

Now, please go check out what the rest of the class is showing at Mel's.

p/s  I will be hosting a giveaway of my own in the next few days, so please check back often!
