Heaven’s Sweet Babies Hop April 30th

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Today we are honoring Jessica our HIMCR sister and her sweet little angles.
We would also like you to hop
to support all women who have had a Miscarriage. I hope that you would hop along with me to honor these women and their sweet angles. You may know a mom, friend or you may have had a Miscarriage.
Here are some facts about Miscarriage & a link for American Pregnancy Association for more information.
---->Miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Chemical pregnancies may account for 50-75% of all miscarriages. This occurs when a pregnancy is lost shortly after implantation, resulting in bleeding that occurs around the time of her expected period. The woman may not realize that she conceived when she experiences a chemical pregnancy.
---->Most miscarriages occur during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. Pregnancy can be such an exciting time, but with the great number of recognized miscarriages that occur, it is beneficial to be informed about miscarriage, in the unfortunate event that you find yourself or someone you know faced with one.
--->Don’t forget there are support groups

What Makes A Mother
I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today
I asked, "What makes a Mother?"
And I know I heard him say
A Mother has a baby
This we know is true
But, God, can you be a mother
When your baby's not with you?

Yes, you can he replied
With confidence in his voice
I give many women babies
When they leave it is not their choice
Some I send for a lifetime
And others for the day
And some I send to feel your womb
But there's no need to stay.
I just don't understand this God
I want my baby here
He took a breath
and cleared his throat
And then I saw a tear
I wish I could show you
What your child is doing Here
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say
"We go to earth to learn our lessons
of love and life and fear,
but My mommy loved me so much
I got to come straight here!"
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who
had so much love for me
I learned my lessons very quickly
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow is where I lay
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear
"Mommy, Please don't be sad today
I'm your baby and I am here"
So you see my dear sweet one
Your children are okay
Your babies are here in My home
And this is where they'll stay
They'll wait for you with Me
Until your lessons there are through
And on the day that you come home
they'll be at the gates waiting for you
So now you see
What makes a Mother
It's the feeling in your heart
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start

I decide to make a Thinking of you card and use a butterfly off the Hannah Montana cartridge and add lots of different colors of Stickles on the butterfly.  I used 3 shades of purple from my scrapbook.  Thinking of you is from a CTMH stamp set.  I used the Scallop Stitch Border Maker from Creative Memories along the bottom of the card. 
I have decide to give away some blog candy for my first hop to be part of.  You must become a follwer of my blog and leave a comment all of my HIMCR Sister blog.  I will pick the winner on Friday and announce the winner on Monday.
If you have come here from AJ Scrapbooking and Cards then you are in the right place!! If not, why not start from the beginning at AJ Scrapbooking and Cards.
Here is the Hop: 
Thanks and have a great day!
