{Giveaway} Boxed Cards from Small Bird Studio

It’s an honor and a privilege to share this month’s giveaway. October is Pregnancy/Infant Loss Month. For many of our NICU families, they come home with empty arms. And, many mothers have felt the pain of miscarriage and stillbirth. Fellow PreemieBabies101 Contributor and NICU mom, Franchesca Cox, shares that pain.
After we lost our first child, a little girl in 2009, my worst fear was forgetting her completely. Three years out from losing her, I know now that is impossible. Those 13 days God gave us with her in the NICU were priceless and some of the best days of my life. 

Small Bird Studio is named after Jenna Belle, Franchesca’s small bird, and is a way for her to share the things Jenna Belle has inspired since she left this world. You can learn more about the projects that she has inspired on Franchesca’s blog. This month, we will be honoring all those angels with a giveaway from Small Bird Studio. Below are a few samples of the cards Franchesca creates. The winner may choose any boxed set from the site. If you have lost a child, or you know someone who has, these cards may be the perfect way to reach out.
