October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This awesome design of a Momma and Baby Fox was created by Kathleen Riehl of Bloom and Grow Designs. Kathleen and her husband Jim started their shop that features incredible custom designs, jewelry, and other wooden creations in memory of their precious son Nicholas Dean, who left this world a little over one year ago after his courageous fight in the NICU. Kathleen’s perspective, strength, and resilience is incredibly inspiring to me. You can visit their shop at www.BloomandGrowDesigns.com.
Please take a moment to read the following from Kathleen about their boys and how their shop came to be. You can also find Kathleen’s story of Nicholas’ life here, in hopes of remembering him and little ones like him.
