Well, I finally did it. I created a website/blog for our Savanna's Sunshine! It is a much needed work in progress but it's going none the less. I can at least mark that off of the to-do list! I am in hopes for it to be a place to sort through my projects and post updates, but also to provide a place for all baby loss parents and families around the world.
I'm going into this blind and just running at it full force. I'm not sure where it will bring me or what path it will take me down but I am sooo excited to share Savanna with the world. I hope to shine her rays of light upon people everywhere. I am in hopes, most of all... to keep her memory alive. I want for people to speak of her name and smile as I do. I want people to know that her death has a reason but her life is MY reason. I hope to give comfort to another and a brace for those heartbroken and torn apart. In this process, I am in hopes that it will somehow help me heal. That it will eventually put the pieces of my heart back together. I know there will always be lines and edges that are missing but to at least be taped and glued together in a jagged mess would be a phenomenon and an improvement in the way it lays tattered and shredded now. Today I was filled with hope. I know that only came from the Lord and my Savanna pushing me along.
I started designing the T-shirts for the Spring for SIDS fundraiser we are doing. After 8 different designs, I finally narrowed it down (with the help of many others) to this one...
I am so blessed for all of those who have shown so much care and appreciation, love and interest in fighting this fight with us. I hope one day, there won't be a need for campaigns such as these. But until then I will fight like hell!
