My Miracle - Giveaway!

This post will stay at the top.  Please scroll down for new posts!

Last week God gave me a miracle.  Here is a quick update: I am 8 weeks pregnant after 2-1/2 years of trying to conceive and two miscarriages.  We began having issues with the pregnancy last Wednesday, if you have not read my full blog post you can find it here.  Thursday we went in for a sonogram and discovered we were having twins, find my updated blog post here.  Unfortunately we did indeed miscarry one, but the other is healthy and on track for a normal pregnancy.  We just knew we were loosing our little blessing and discovering that we still have one and that this one seems to be perfectly normal is truly a miracle! 

To celebrate our miracle and all the wonderful and supportive comments and prayers we've received, I am giving away a batch of sweet goodies. What better things to give away in celebration of a miracle than glimmer mists, glimmer chips and glimmer screens from tattered ANGELS?  I also added in a few more things including flowers and fancy brads from Karen Foster.  I hope you like!!!!



The Glimmer Chips: Creme De Chocolat, Nature, 32 Pcs.

The Glimmer Screens: Fanciful Stencils, 9 Pcs.
The Glimmer Mist Colors - Yellow Daisy, Jazz Blue, and Pink Bubblegum

 

For a chance to win my Miracle Giveaway, all you have to do is:


1. Become or be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post telling me if you have any miracles of your own.
2. Tell everyone on your blog about my giveaway. Don't have a blog? Just tell me how you will spread the word.


I will use random # generator to select the winner on March 31st, 2011. Thanks again to you all for your support and wonderful comments, I personally think my followers and the paper crafting community is the sweetest group of people I have ever met and it just overwhelms me to have so many wonderful new friends and followers, thank you and Good luck to you all!!


Have a fabulous week!
Hugs, Jessica

Jessica I am so excited knowing the wonderful feelings you must be experiencing knowing you are going to be a mother. I have already shared with you my amazing little miracle! Although he is super sick right now, we are glad he is home from the hospital and we are still so grateful for the miracle God blessed us with 5 months ago!

Debby said...

OMG, I am so happy for you! It must have been hard but happy, what mixed feelings! Try to enjoy!
My blessing: Sort of the same as yours. I have a 10yo DS and that took about 3 years to get pregnant and in February 2009 I found out that I was 20 weeks pregnant with DD. Even though they are 8 and a half years apart: They are such blessings to us.
Jessica, congratulations and I hope it will all go well. Your post sure made my tears running! ((((HUGS)))

Carolina said...

A new life is always a miracle. Lots of blessings for you and your family! When I had DD, I was also pregnant with twins but one didn't develop, though we only found out much later in the pregnancy.

Carolina said...

I've posted your giveaway on my sidebar. Great way to celebrate the good news!

deedee.girl said...

Yay for you and your little (BIG!)miracle! I have had many miracles in my life; my 2 kids, who are now grown and have given me 5 beautiful grandchildren! Another personal miracle is being a 3-time cancer survivor. I wish you the very best in your pregnancy!

Kim said...

Jessica, I'm super excited for you! My daughter had 2 miscarriages herself and it was very hard. But her and her husband have a very healthy amazing little boy who is 8 months now!! Many Blessings for your & Family:)

Beth said...

Congratulations Jessica! I am already a follower. I have 2 little "miracles" of my own. Whan I remarried at 38, my dh had never been married before and didn't have any children. I had only one ovary, and had had a tubal ligation about 10 years earlier. We decided to go ahead and try IVF. The second time was much harder than the first as I was 41 years old and it took a lot more meds to produce half as many eggs, but it worked, and we have 2 beautiful children that I never expected to have! Will be thinking about you and look forward to updates. I will post a link to this giveaway to my blog now.

As for our miracle - As you know my 23 year old son was left a quadriplegic following a car accident 3 years ago. But with the miracle of In Vetro his wife and him are expecting their first child. She is 12 weeks along.

Kelly said...

Jessica, your story is so familiar! I know exactly what you are going through...my daughter, who is 15 now :) was also a twin. I lost her twin within the first trimester of my pregnancy! The rest of the pregnancy was great. She is my miracle baby...as you know the emotions, the up and down roller coaster, the hurt, etc,. I was told I was going to lose the second baby too...but she is definitely a fighter...still...lol I wish you all the best on your journey to motherhood.
Oh and such an awesome giveaway to celebrate such wonderful news!

I just became a follower. My own recent miracle is discovering that my car problems could be fixed for $60. I was expecting to pay a few hundred, so this is great for me.

KateB said...

hey there-I was just coming by "just because" and see all this news!!! Am glad you are up to week 10 and yes, it is sad about the other twin but hope & pray that the other one continues to thrive!

I actually have 2 miracles-ONE: I am a twin (fraternal-my sis is in today's layout on my blog with me) and TWO: in addition to my 13 YO daughter, I have a now 6 YO son-who entered this world at 1 lb 8 0z at 25 weeks...he is a miracle! He stayed inthe NICU for 8 months if you can believe and even now, we are still working on things but he does his thing each and every day without complaint :):0

Congratulations!!!!!I am married for 2 years (nearly) and waiting for the miracle to happen. Your testimony was inspiring. Love to win. I'm a new follower

Teresa Davis said...

Jessica, I am so thankful to hear about your miracle! You have been through the fire and you are so joyful and that is so inspirational to me...I have been so tied these last 3 weeks that my dear friend Nancy has been in intensive care and I have not been able to keep up with your blog and your progress. I thought I left a post a minute ago, but I did something wrong and lost it, so if it turns up later I have kinda said the same thing twice..anyway, I am praying for you and thinking of you regularly and am believing it will all be smooth sailing from here...the Lord bless and keep you!
