** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

WEDNESDAYS FOR WYATT- Week 2

This is the second week of
'WEDNESDAYS FOR WYATT'!!
Go HERE to read about Wyatt's story,
and HERE to sign the petition.


Here we go! Our second Wednesday for Wyatt! It’s quite simple to participate. All you have to do is copy and paste this post to your blog, and then go here to link up with Danielle's MckLinky! Once you do that, you're entered to win a great giveaway! Kristi, one of the dear women who has been following this family's story, has generously donated some handmade buckeye's jewelry for today's give-away. Thank you so much Kristi!

FROM DANIELLE ~

Over the last week we have gotten 123 new signatures! Over 100 of those we got last Wednesday alone. And we had 34 wonderful bloggers link up... I can't wait to see how much Wednesdays for Wyatt will grow this week!

For those of you who are not familiar with my family and what we are trying to achieve, here’s a brief run down...

Our son Wyatt was diagnosed with a fatal condition at our 18 week ultrasound, but chose to carry him to term. We waited to meet our son with love, all the time praying we would get to see him alive.

On June 1, 2009, Wyatt made his way into the world by c-section. To our amazement he had a faint heartbeat and was breathing! He died two minutes later, but I’ve clung to the two minutes my son and I breathed the same air since his passing.

Upon calling to get a copy of Wyatt’s birth certificate, I found out he was listed as a stillborn. You would assume it was a mistake (like I did), but there was no mistake. According to the definition of live birth in Tennessee my son was not “alive enough” to be deemed a live born baby. His two minutes of life has gone unrecognized by my state, and I intend to change this piece of legislation so I can solidify the validity of my son’s short life.

Wednesdays for Wyatt was created to help spread awareness for a law that needs to be changed, as well as to generate more traffic to my petition. So if you’re reading this, thanks for taking the time to help our family!

This contest will be open today only. I will close MckLinky down sometime before midnight, so make sure you get linked up ASAP to make sure you are entered to win this giveaway! Thanks for helping everyone, and good luck.


UPDATE: I wanted to let you all know that my grandson, Big Boy, is doing much better and is back in school. However, his younger brother, Little Bit, who is almost 23 months old, has also been quite sick. They both appear to be recovering well, however, I would very much appreciate your continued prayers. Thanks so very much! t

Teresa,
I am so sorry it has taken me so long to come by and visit! What a sad story for Wyatt! I will be sure to come back on Wednesday so I can link up. It looked like it said it was only open that day (I could be wrong). I hope your grandsons get better soon. It is no fun to have a sick child, let alone two of them! Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Halloween!
