Message to other loss Mom’s about Mothers Day (video link included) 

I remember so vividly the very first Mothers Day after we lost Averie. I woke up early and sat up in bed and just stared off at the wall in front of me. I didn’t want to wake up that morning. Secretly I hoped I would either sleep through it or maybe not wake up at all. I didn’t get up out of bed from what I can remember and I sure didn’t try to venture outside. I didn’t feel like torturing myself seeing the happy families complete with all their children. 

A few friends and family members text me to tell me happy Mothers Day and that small gesture meant the freaking world to me. 

I was a Mommy, though nobody could visually see it. I know us Moms that are missing a child sometimes want to shout it to the world that we in fact Mothers or Mothers to more children then you can physically see. HUGE pieces of our hearts are missing. That’s why I wanted to make t-shirts because instead of shouting in strangers faces “I’m a Mom I swear!!” I thought it would be a little less invasive and get my point across. 

I’m so excited to say that the shirts are available finally!! You can find them here on my sisters website. Below are the styles available. I’m so excited to wear mine because I’m so proud of both my girls! And honestly, if it gets people asking questions then I get the chance to talk about my Averie, and I love being able to do that. 

Watch my video HERE about the last two Mothers Day without Averie. Thank you to my sweet nephew Trae who edited it. Another big thank you to my sister Vanessa for making these t-shirts a possibility and for supporting me always. I love you ❤❤

    This is a really lovely idea. I just watched your video too. My first mothers day fell only a week after our little girl was born sleeping last month. Friends text to say they were especially thinking of me that day because they obviously could see it would be hard, but one friend sent me a message saying ‘ you are wonderful and strong, you are full of courage and you are kind. You have all the qualities that are written in a mothers day cards and you are one of the best mummies I know.’ I think this message is true for all mummies of angel babies. I am so grateful for that friend who chose to recognise I was now a mum, sensitively and kindly. ‘Happy mothers day’ has the wrong sentiment, but the challenges ‘motherhood’ has thrown at mums of sleeping babies should be acknowledged. Sending you love and happiness and I hope your Tshirts raise awareness and funds for your charity. x
