The 5th Belongs to Calvin: My 2nd Giveaway

Today is a special day, not only for my Calvin Phoenix, but also for Jenna Belle, Franchesca’s sweet little girl. As Calvin is celebrating 14 months in heaven, Jenna is celebrating her 1st birthday there, too — so happy heavenly birthday baby girl! We hope you like your cupcake and enjoyed your birthday with my Calvin and Rainbow.

Something Happened Book Giveaway

Since becoming a part of the babyloss community, I have come to know such amazing people: Parents who are surviving their losses and enduring their grief and the beautiful babies they have carried. These mothers and fathers are such inspirations to me, because their strength does not lie in “getting over it,” but in admitting their moments of weakness, of sharing their heartache, and their desire to look towards joy and hope.

It’s been a while since my first giveaway, so for this month’s The 5th Belongs to Calvin, I would like to have my second giveaway, in honor of my sweet boy, who has stretched my heart and introduced me to a such a special, supportive community.

Watch to video to see the book and find out how to enter. It is my first attempt at vlogging (sort of, since this also has words along with it), so please excuse the weird cracklings, the novice editing, and my voice (is that my voice? is that my voice?).

The winner will be randomly chosen at the end of the month.


My precious Calvin, it’s been 14 months since I last held you, but I miss you as much as ever, and I love you even more. Happy 14 months in heaven, Calvin! Mommy and Daddy love you and Rainbow so much.

  1. Aw, I’m in tears, what a sweet story. They didn’t have anything for my DD when Sam died…well, they had a colouring book called “The Frog Family”…written in 1978 and photocopied (oye)…so I would totally give this to the hospital where I delivered my little guy. Alternately, I would give it to my midwives’ clinic as they have a great library with very little on pregnancy loss…but I think since most people transfer to an OB once their baby is going to be stillborn, the hospital would be a better bet. The social workers at the hospital must have a resource library they can use…

  2. Crystal, this book is absolutely beautiful!! I don’t have anyone who has young children in real life that this would be good for, but I can think of a few BLM’s in the blogsphere who this may help. *hugs*

  3. Hi Crystal! ok so I guess the nursing home sent back the necklace since my G ma was moved to hospice…so it is being sent to you VIA mail 🙁 Im so sorry…can you email me your email address and I will send my grandfathers home address? They did love the necklace and i cant wait for them to see it in person 🙂
