Kimberly Saldana, my friend, fellow card maker, and Hero Arts Sales Director, has created a charity for mothers who have lost a child to miscarriage. Many of us have experienced the pain of losing an unborn baby yet we speak very little about this unbearable pain. I have experienced this pain. It’s a tragic loss. The grieving is unbearable and any resource to help us through the grieving process is a welcomed gift. Kimberly had a friend who gave her the book “You are the Mother of all Mothers” by Angela Miller. Kimberly notes, “After only reading a few pages, I finally let myself accept for the first time that what happened to us was not my fault and that I did have the strength to continue to be a better mom and wife. The book’s encouraging message is conveyed in a way that is thoughtful, uplifting, compassionate and relatable.”
In an effort to help other mothers who have experienced this pain, Kimberly is working to purchase and distribute this wonderful book right into the medical offices where it is needed. Her goal is to put a handmade card into each book. Let’s pull together and help make this happen!
Thanks to Jennifer McGuire for bringing us all together for a good cause!
