My best friend and I have been friends for a long time but it wasn't until we were both diagnosed with autoimmune diseases that we became the very dearest of friends. We were the girls that were making something out of life while being sick. We often spoke of our paths in life and how motherhood was not for us. So imagine my surprise when last June she walked into my house crying and said "I am pregnant." She was happier than I had ever seen her, it was a beautiful moment that I will treasure forever. I immediately got onboard and came up with a bunch of crafts for us to make together. We were having a great time getting ready for Shane (baby's name) when Jen (my best friend) found out Shane is very sick and may not live past birth.
I felt so helpless in the face of her heartbreak I didn't know what to do at first. Then I remembered I believe in miracles, I believe that anything is possible with God and I believe in the power of prayer. With this in mind, I went to work on putting Shane on prayer lists around the world. I also decided that as Jen's best friend it was my job to make sure she keeps hope alive. I was immediately inspired to make a series of postcards that I could send to her for the rest of her pregnancy. I had no idea how many I was going to make but I decided as I made them I would pray for Shane. It turns out the magic number was 10 postcards. I named them a Series of Hope.
#4 Shane's initials are SEA
The first one was sent today.
Thanks for looking
