this and that..and a little getting to know you.. and me..

First of all, thanks to Fran, Jenna's mommy @ small bird studio for the new look! I love it! She does such a great job for way cheaper than any other I've ever seen and to make it even better, its for a good cause..go check her out :)


Second, I have seen a few people asking their lurkers to come out and reveal themselves..and I would LOVE to know who reads my blog..and how did you find me? Have you followed very long?  This is for anyone and everyone..baby lost and otherwise, even if I know you in real life..let me know! Because sometimes I question if its read by anyone..(during my random pity party sessions of course..)

Lastly, I have seen a few people do a Q&A post.. questions you may have, about my life, my family, my loss, my relationships, anything..if you are curious about something, just let me know :)
Question Marks Pictures, Images and Photos



I look forward to hearing from you!!

Also.. I still have Ella's name gallery (on the left side of the screen)..if anyone has one that you would like to share, please email it me @jennygrl1026@yahoo.com..I love to see her name written.. I guess because I cannot get any new pics of her, her name works.. :)

I have been reading your blog for a few months. I am sorry for your loss of Ella. I am not sure how i originally came across your blog, but I check it often.

Hi! My name's Kelly, and I am a lurker. I'm from Texas, and just moved back in Sept. For two years I lived in Tulsa as well. I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I've been reading it for awhile now. My heart aches for you and your family as you deal with the loss of your sweet little girl. She was and is so precious. I have an 18 month old little girl, and my mommy heart goes out to you and all the other moms dealing with the loss of their children. I have been, and will continue to pray for you.

Hi Jenny, I hate to think of myself as a lurker but I check in every night. I need to know you are ok. I read Cayden's reviews and enjoy them very much. I think of you everyday, wish you had come back to work in the office with us. Galen and I are watching Alice and I have to say that unless Johnny appears very soon I am not liking it very much. We also thought that Where the Wild Things Are was really not very good. We watched Hatchi last weekend camping with the girls and it made little Ceci well up, she was so upset that the man passed away and left the dog waiting for him to come back. Anna said " it has been 10 years and the dog still doesn't get it?" Difference between 2 personalities. Anna's remark was something that Tiff would have come up with. Poor Ceci, she said "I can't watch this movie anymore" eyes all welled up with tears and then said to the puppy we took with us, " don't worry Bisquit, you won't have to go anywhere for 10 years, we won't forget you"
My sister is a artist and I am going to see if she can come up with something nice to write Ella's name on.

Hi Jen,

I too am new to your blog and found you by jumping from one babyloss blog to another.

I am sorry that we had to "meet" because we have both lost a baby however I find comfort knowing that you are out here sharing Ella's story and offering support.

Hi! I'm Brandi...from AL...I've been reading your blog for so long that I don't even remember how I happened upon it. But I check on you every day!

How did you pick Ella's name? That's such a gorgeous name and really had never heard it until this past year.

Hi Jen,

I don't believe I have ever commented on your blog, but have been reading for about 4 months. I can't remember how I found you.....you know, from one blog we get to another to another. I lost my daughter Hannah at 18w4d in September 2009. Your story breaks my heart as I see the face of your beautiful daughter and hear the words you write.

You are always in my prayers.

Love,
Katy

Hey, Jen...I'm a Jen, too. I found your blog from another blog I read and decided to post instead of just "lurk". I lost my son, Logan, almost 6 years ago due to a respiratory disorder known as tracheal atresia. He went to be with Jesus only 30 minutes here with us. We have since had two beautiful rainbow babies, but there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about my sweet boy. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious girl. She is absolutely gorgeous!

Annie said...

Hi Jen, I learned of you through the Gittlemens on FB on a link to pray for you and mito. I have been ever since. I check all the time to see how you're doing and to see how I can pray for you and your sweet family. Nice meeting you virtually :) Annie Green

I not really sure how long I've been reading. I started finding all these BLM in the community and hoped around from page to page. Love the new look by the way, it looks great! I usually ask the same questions on these q&a's but I like reading all the differnt answers. How is your coping with grief different from Ella's daddy's way?

Michelle said...

Hi Jen, I am a lurker! My name is Michelle.. I have no idea how long I have been following your blog for now!! But my sister in law is Lisa Vanderven. I hope and pray that all is well with you!! I LOVE your daughters name!!

Karen said...

Hi. I am a new follower. I am sorry about your precious Ella. I have enjoyed reading through your posts.

Heidi said...

WOW Jen, LOVE the new blog! She did a great job. Like you, Ive been doing all my own stuff. Thanks for your comments, as you can tell Im still learning and working on my new template. One of these days Ill hire someone real creative to do something cool with it! Theres just so much to learn when trying to customize it yourself (thank-you google!)

Im glad you added your "ella" button again. I was lucky enough to snag your old one a while back but this one is so much easier to read:) I love seeing her face everytime I open my page. Oh, I noticed the "Ella in the clouds" pic isnt showing up? (wheres ella been) Is what I sent you OK?
As always, hugs and continued prayers for you & your family.
Heidi & Jack.

Hi, I'm Shannon. I've been reading awhile, can't remember how I found your blog. My daughter Marie Isabel passed in August 09 from mito (Leigh's Disease)... I like reading because we often feel the same things:)

I just found your blog from Franchesca's blog. She is so amazing and talented. I am so sorry to have to meet you this way. I wish things could be different for us. Stay strong!

Hello!
I am a total lurker. I think I found you from Angie Smith..... I think. I honestly can't remember. My heart aches for you. I am truely sorry for your loss.

I lost my Annaliese going on 7 years on May 14th due to holoprosencephaly. I think I spelled it right. I was 23 weeks along when I had her. I now have a 14month old little girl Allison.

I don't even know you and I wish I could take the pain. i just remember how difficult the first few years were after I lost her and I didnt even get to watch her grow up any.

Well I guess I am not really a lurker anymore.

Jennifer

My Name is Cindy. I started reading your blog after seeing you on the news. My heart went out to you after hearing Ella's story. I don't know you personally but just from reading your blog I can tell you are an amazing woman and mother. I pray for you because I can only imagine the hurt you must feel. I just wanted to let you know that I think you have so much strength and God will continue to carry you through this journey.

Hi Jen~
I'm a lurker coming out to say hi! I believe I came across your blog from another blog; possibly Kelly's Korner or I came across learning of Ella from Safe Haven. I'm not quite sure, but I read your blog almost daily and followed along learning about your family and your special Ella. Your family had been in my thoughts and prayers daily once I found out about Ella. She was such a beautiful little girl; I love all of the pictures. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through as I have not lost a child. I have 2 boys; ages 13 yo and 11 yo. I still have you and your family in my daily thoughts and prayers since Ella became an angel. Btw, I LOVE the name 'Ella'; it's such a beautiful girl's name. I'll try to not be a lurker and start to comment:o)
God Bless you and your family!

Hi, I just found your blog today and I cried. I lost my son at 16w3days on 3/23/06. It is still hard to deal with. I grew up in Tulsa and am now in FL, I thought the OK connection was "cute" lol!
