My greatest JOY of 2017!

My greatest JOY of 2017!

January 03, 2018 2 Comments

The greatest joy that Baby Octopi brought me in 2017 was the opportunity to walk along side so many amazing mamma's and their miracle babies. Being a part of these journeys has been such a privilege and the most pleasant surprise. 

I have said from the beginning that we are so much more than just baby products. We are on a mission to spread a message, employ moms in our community, support non profit organizations and bring comfort to as many babies as we can. Along with all those things, and because of you, we are also able to be part of creating a culture that values life and celebrates the babies that so many parents never thought they would have the chance to know. 

As I sift through orders each night, I pour over stories of answered prayers. Stories of infertility, surrogacy, adoption, childhood cancer, angels in our midst and miracles. My husband, Eric and I carefully designed our verse blankets, knowing that the meaning would run deep for so many, but nothing could have prepared me for the impact that they would have on families all over the world who are literally wrapping up their babies in words that speak life and love all over them. 

Each family that I hear from grabs a hold of my heart and I am almost bursting at the seams keeping the amazing news of the blessings that they've experienced to myself—that is why I started this blog! Every Monday, I am going to be sharing a story of life! I've been gathering videos, photos and words straight from the hearts of moms and dads who have taken a look at our blankets and known that it was made for their little one. So get your Kleenex ready because I know that the joy that has been brought to these families through their little miracle is going to overflow in to your heart, just like it has to mine! 

Stay tuned for our first Monday Miracle coming January 8th!

The beauty in this story is that we could never have written it on our own, and yet we are so thankful for every step that brought us to this place.

It was a long, emotional ride to become a legal family, but I wouldn't change any part of our journey because it led us to the most perfect version of my childhood dreams.

Welcoming our beautiful son into the world in the same hospital we said goodbye to our daughter, Paisley just 11 months ago was such an emotional, yet victorious moment for our family.
