    Love your beautiful jewelry. My beautiful 2 year old daughter is my constant reminder of being marked by love. :)

  2. Karah says:

    My best friend lost her baby girl at birth about 1 1/2 years ago. I would love to win this necklace for her. Her name was Makenna.

  3. Karah says:

    I am tweeting about this giveaway. @karahsfa06

  4. Karah says:

    I am also facebooking about this giveaway. Thanks for doing this. I know if I won this necklace it would be so special to her :)

  5. Michelle says:

    We also lost our sweet baby girl….We were marked by her love between the love of our two precious boys whom we get to enjoy here on earth…..our EmmaMay is “yet to hold, always to love” Thanks for creating this keepsake for all us moms…in honor of Audrey.

  6. Erin says:

    my husband ordered the Family Tree necklace from you for my birthday! I love that it has all 4 of my kids names on it. However it does’nt…. it is missing the name of the baby we lost. Although we lost him or her at 11 weeks that baby is a part of me…. I think I need the Audrey necklace now as a reminder of my liitle angel…. Maybe I will drop a hint to my hubby for Mothers Day!!!!

  7. Sheri Maple says:

    What a special piece. I have been marked by love by a tiny little boy who lived within me for 13 weeks and who left such a hole in my heart but one that is filled by joy that there will be a someday.

  8. Tiffany says:

    What a beautiful necklace! I recently lost my dear grandma to breast cancer…and I was touched by her amazing love. This necklace would be a wonderful reminder of her love.

  9. Charity says:

    I would love to win this necklace and give it to my mother-in-law. She had a stillborn baby and never got to mourn his loss. I know that it would mean so much to her to have that little reminder of him.
    As much as we love our children and have been marked by them, our Father in heaven loves us ever more and continuously seeks to remind us that we have been marked by love. We are sealed by Him until His glorious return.

  10. Angela says:

    I was blessed with the best kind of love when I gave birth to my son two years ago. He has showed me what true love and totally letting your guard down does to your soul. This necklace is beautiful and will be a daily reminder (besides his sweet face) of how truly blessed I am.

  11. Rebecca says:

    I was marked by love when the doctors told me that I wouldn’t be able to have children, but God healed me of PCOS and has given me TWO beautiful babies. They have marked my heart with an everlasting love!

    This necklace is truly a remarkable piece of handiwork. Y’all did a fabulous job in designing it!

    Prayers and blessings,

  12. Amy says:

    Love love love you designs. I’m hoping that I will be getting a special necklace from my honey for my birthday. The seed has been planted! If I win, I’d love to send something special to my mom.

  13. angie says:

    angie is such an inspiration to read, and i absolutely love your beautiful necklaces.


  14. Elise says:

    Three of my little ones flew away to Jesus too early… two of them before we hardly had time to celebrate even knowing they were on their way, the third at fourteen weeks in the womb, when I gave birth to it alone and held it in the palm of my hand before saying goodbye. This necklace would be such a joy to own and wear and remember… thank you.

  15. Kelly says:

    I was always told that I would never be able to have children. I have Katelyn now. She has taught me more about love that I can even express. Thank you for creating this beautiful piece. I’ve followed Audrey’s story and love how this looks. Whatta great reminder.

  16. Jennifer says:

    Fortunately I have not lost a child, though I almost lost my life (and that of my unborn girl) with my last pregnancy, but I do have a dear friend who lost a baby boy. What a beautiful necklace.

  17. Gina says:

    I am so lucky to still have my son. He has taught me to love more deeply and with purpose. Because of him, I am a better person.

  18. Ani says:

    Our children joined our family through adoption… We are forever marked by the love their birthmothers had for each of them, which resulted in their quest to find them a family to love and cherish them as they were unable to do at the time. We are forever marked by the overwhelming love we feel for these little souls entrusted to us by God.
    Happy Tuesday!

  19. Holly says:

    We have a sweet daughter also lost shortly before her birth, Sela Mae. We lost her in 2006 and I have found a lot of resonance in reading Angie’s blog since I found it in 2007 after Audrey passed away. We have also been blessed with two beautiful boys as well but I think of my sweet daughter every day. What a precious way to remember these sweet babies who we are physically separated from but that we will meet one sweet day………

  20. Chelsea says:

    This necklace is precious. We had a miscarriage our 1st pregnancy and the Lord gave us another baby. We found out yesterday we are having a boy. We are so thankful for God’s love to us.

  21. Patricia says:

    Our beautiful daughter has joined us through adoption and we are forever marked with love and happiness by her sweet self & joyful spirit. We are humbled everyday that we have the honor and privilege to be her parents. A gorgeous necklace & symbol of unending love.

  22. Jenn H. says:

    I have been blessed with three beautiful children who have marked my life with love. But I would really like to be able to share this necklace with a dear friend who lost her baby boy last fall. What a beautiful tribute to Audrey Caroline. Thanks!

  23. Kristy says:

    I have never lost a child, but would love to give this as a gift to a friends who has.

  24. Taylor says:

    I lost my sweet Nathan shortly after Audrey died and have been blessed with a daughter since then. I followed Angie’s blog through my whole pregnancy and her words would bring me such strength. I would love to have this necklace with my babies names on it. It is simply beautiful.

  25. Brooke says:

    I have a friend who I would like to “enter” to win this necklace for. She is the most beautiful, Godly woman I have ever had the priviledge of knowing. Every day she inspires and encourages me! She lost her first born son 3 years ago. Every day she misses her sweet little Samuel and yet she has chosen not to grow bitter but to use her experience to minister to others!

    This is a beautiful necklace and such a fantastic idea! I hope that it will bring comfort to lots of mommy’s who miss their sweet little ones.

  26. Julie says:

    I have never lost a child, but I read the blogs of women who have and feel hurt and love for them. I pray that they always find peace and comfort and that they are always marked by God’s love!

  27. Sonya says:

    I’m blessed beyond measure with my husband and three children that have marked me by their love. I have no tragedy. Like I said, I am blessed!! I’m a pastor’s wife and love my little town and my little life here in SC. I love Angie’s blog and her story is absolutley amazing and inspiring … your creation is beautiful and I’d love to have one!

  28. I lost my husband in 2006… this is beautiful.

  29. Kelli Davis says:

    My oldest friend, Brooke, and her husband, Alan, tried for 3 years to have a baby. In the process, she’s lost two sweet unborn babes. Next month, she’ll give birth to a tiny angel- Violet Marie. Brooke is definitely marked by love, with love.

    Beautiful pieces.

  30. Amanda Mohr says:

    I have been marked by love through the adoption of my sweet nephew! My brother and sister in law began the adoption process after trying for a few years to have a baby…my sister in law lived with my nephew in Guatemala for 8 months waiting to bring him home to the states. I am forever changed by the faith and love that my brother and sister in law showed through that whole experience!! They had so many challenges to go through during their adoption. They have now had Eliot home for almost 3 years!!! That little boy is the love of this Aunt’s life!! Everytime I see his smiling face or hear stories of things he has been doing it reminds me of ALL that GOD has given us through this precious little gift.

    Everyone said how much better Eliot life would be living here instead of in Guatemala…well it is not just his life that is better, our lives have been changed for the better since that little man has come to be apart of our family!!

  31. Jeannine says:

    We just found out yesterday that we are in the midst of our third miscarriage. Three pregnancies and three miscarriages in under four years. Many years of trying and still no babies here at home but all will be remembered and LOVED forever. Wonderful necklace, Lisa.

  32. Becky says:

    This necklace is beautiful and so filled with meaning. I have been marked by love through the loss of our first child to miscarriage and yet marked by love through the gift of two beautiful twin boys less than a year later and further marked by love of the Lord’s gracious and never ending love and mercy to us.

  33. Joanne Martinson says:

    My niece Maryah, has been battling bone cancer (Ewings Sarcoma) for over 6 years. She has recently been told there is nothing more they can do for her medically. She is almost 16 years old, and the most special young woman I know! Although my sister has not lost her yet…it is close and we are feeling the pain of watching her slip away. I have lost my mother, grandmother, uncles, and cousin…but nothing has felt this low before. My sister and I are extremely close, as well as Maryah and I. It feels as though I am losing my own child.

    You can see her here:

    I would love to see this beautiful piece on my sister. What an extremely thoughtful sentiment Lisa!! You truely have a gift with your jewelry as well as your family!!

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  34. linsleyd says:

    I am a first time mom and the birth of my daughter as marked me forever. The tiny little soul that has been trusted to my care fills me with love every day!
    Beautiful necklace!

  35. Lauren says:

    I lost my sweet baby, Opal, 2 years ago last month and my heart still aches for her every single day. This necklace is absolutely beautiful and I love the fact that it is heavy, to show the weight our babies had on this world. Thank you so much for creating it!

  36. Jane says:

    I am reminded daily in the midst of the chaos that I am marked with love. It is through the love my Father has for me and my family that I am reminded I am never alone.

  37. Heather says:

    I lost my cousin on Christmas day, from Leukemia. Yesterday would have been her 30th birthday. I am so fortunate to have had her for so many years, and have many wonderful memories of growing up together. I miss her SO much. I think my aunt would love this necklace.

  38. Stacy Kennedy says:

    My husband and I have been walking for five years down a road, named by some, as “infertility”. The grief and grieving of an empty womb is indescribable. If grieving miscarriage is grieving death, then grieving infertility must be like grieving the loss of a limb. We are learning to live with this amputation, of all that I have dreamed since I was a little girl…. pregnancy, nursing, looking into eyes that look like mine & his….

    Finally, in year five, we have re-named our tear-stained road “opportunity”… opportunity to strengthen our marriage (the foundation of the legacy of our family), opportunity to recognize pain in others’ eyes like never before, opportunity for compassion in others’ suffering, opportunity to know the heart of Jesus, opportunity to trust God with our family and our future….

    Our verses:
    “Understand, therefore, that the LORD your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps His covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes His unfailing love on those who love Him and obey His commands.”
    ~Deuteronomy 7:9~

    “But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.” (NIV)
    “But me, I’m not giving up. I’m sticking around to see what God will do. I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.” (Msg)
    ~Micah 7:7~

    Two Truths:

    One: We need Jesus. Jesus is our breath, our Life, our Provision, our Rock… the Breather of Life… “The power of believing in who Jesus is and what He did does not give you the power to not need Him.” from ‘Grace is for Sinners’, by Serena Woods

    Gratefulness is the antidote to suffering. Not “more stuff”, not “pity parties”, not “blaming others for our troubles”…. just gratitude. Give thanks in everything… it is a choice. Paul teaches this truth in his letters over and over and over.

    Thank you for your giveaway, for sharing your heart on your blog Lisa… Thank you:)

  39. Ashley Bourg says:

    If I won this I would give it do a dear friend who just lost her 21 year old daughter. She died unexpectedly a week & a half ago. That girl was FULL of LOVE for everyone. She didn’t care who you were or where you came from. A huge hole has been left in this family due to her death. We are all certain Britan is dancing with the angels as she loved nothing more than to dance.

  40. Alicia says:

    What a beautiful necklace and way to remember. I lost my sweet Abigail after 6 days here on earth. She came to us early (31 weeks) while we were in Russia adopting our oldest son. She was beautiful, a light and hope and God used her short life to accomplish much and touch many. Thank you for working to find a way to help so many remember. It’s beautiful!

  41. Ashley says:

    I’m blessed to have a happy 15 month old, but I know so many friends who never got to bring their babies home or lost them within the 1st year home. Death is so tragic, but I know that this necklace will bless those moms who have little ones in heaven and be a great reminder of their angels.

  42. Kate says:

    That is beautiful.

    I have been marked by love in so many remarkable ways, thanks to the Lord. I was honored to be friends with a girl who had a heart condition. After living life relatively normal, she passed away. But she taught me so much about love and God, through her example to her doctors, nurses and caregivers.

  43. Stacy Kennedy says:

    shared on facebook:)

  44. Tricia M. says:

    So beautiful. We have been blessed by so much love and have friends that have experienced the sorrow of losing a precious little one. What a beautiful gift!

  45. bettyann says:

    My Aunt Helen is marked by Love. She lost her daughter Lynn at 34 to Overian Cancer. She is in the midst of adopting her grand-daughter. This necklace will help her grief. Thank you for the lovely giveaway. Peace Be With You..

  46. Jamie says:

    I have been marked with love, once 6 years ago when I lost my sweet Chandler at 23 weeks and again 2 years ago when I miscarried a sweet angel at 8 weeks. I have also been marked by love by our biological little girl (now 4) and a sweet little adopted baby boy (8 months). Life has been filled with sadness and happiness and through it all I am forever marked by the many different types of love! God has walked me through it all and I will forever be marked with love!

  47. Becky says:

    My sweet little Deklan lived for 4 months and 12 days and in that short time he changed my life more than I even have the words to articulate. He is in everything. I see reminders of him everywhere and seeing him in life makes it beautiful. Seeing the beauty in a life that could seem so bleak without him can only be explained by love.

  48. Kara says:

    This necklace and the story that goes with it are beautiful. Although I have no children, I have been blessed to be a part of many childrens lives and will forever be marked by their sweet innocent love.

  49. txelz says:

    Audrey’s story touched so many people; she really is marked by love. I am marked by my parent’s love in my journey as a child and marked by my family’s love now. How I live, make decisions, everything comes from that place of love for my family, my husband, my children, my God.

  50. Robyn says:

    My sister lost her sweet baby boy, Case, about a year ago. I would absolutely love to bless her with this beautiful necklace.

  51. I lost our 2nd child do to an ectopic pregnancy.

    Our story is posted here:

  52. Kathryn says:

    We were marked by love by a precious little girl named Madison. She was born sleeping on August 26, 1996. I have always wanted a necklace that I could wear specifically in memory of her. She is always on my heart, always in my mind, and I have definitely been marked by having had her in my life…

  53. ellee says:

    my sister in law just lost her 9 month old. she was a downs baby with heart problems. she just passed away last month.

  54. also facebooked about it.

  55. kerry says:

    i’m not sure what to say, or how to say it. but first of all, this necklace is perfect. i love it. lisa, you are SO talented!

    i would love to wear it in honor of my sweet baby girl sadie, who was born still almost a year ago now at 37 weeks. i would love to wear and hold this ‘weighty’ necklace as i remember the precious moments that i held my sweet girl. i love that it is called ‘marked by love’. i will forever be marked by the love i have for sadie.

    thanks to you and angie for doing this!! it is so special and so important…and beautiful.

  56. Leslie says:

    What a beautiful necklace! My husband and I have been married for 14 years and have not been able to have children of our own. By the grace of God, we have hope for our future, and we are grateful to be marked by love.

  57. Lisa Martin says:

    Beautiful! Can’t wait to have one! :)

  58. Mommy Bee says:

    What a beautiful necklace. I have a friend who lost a baby a little over a year ago. This would be a wonderful gift for her to remember him by.

  59. Ashlee says:

    As much as I’d love to keep this for myself (if I win), I know someone who needs it to be reminded that her daughter had weight in this world, even if she only lived a few short days.

    It is beautiful.

  60. christy a says:

    That necklace is gorgeous and the story even more amazing. It is a beautiful gift for anyone that has lost a child. I was marked by love the first time I met my first child and fell even deeper into love the next time I met my second child. There is nothing like feeling that baby inside of you for 9 months and then meeting them for the first time. I have fallen even more in love with my babies this past year as I have been home with them, because of job loss. God has truly been closer than ever and has made something beautiful out of tragedy, just like the necklace.

  61. April says:

    Fortunately I haven’t lost a child, but I have a lot of family and friends that have. Thank you for making something special for them. I can’t wait to buy one!

  62. Katie says:

    It’s beautiful and so perfect. I would be honored to wear it in remembrance of the journey I, too, took to motherhood.

  63. Chris says:

    Our family has been marked by love many times over…with 6 grandchildren here on earth, and by 2 precious babies now with Jesus in heaven. Our sweet Aidan lived for 4 months,dying from complications due to his many birth defects…what an amazing mark he has left on so many lives!! Then this past April, our granddaughter Sadie was born still at 37 weeks gestation. She was amazingly beautiful, perfect in every way except that her little heart stopped beating. I would love to win this beautiful necklace and have both their names engraved on the back…their lives are still marking mine with love!

  64. I have been marked by love in so, so many ways… but this necklace reminds me of a sweet friend who recently lost her third born. I just can’t imagine the pain she deals with daily, and I know something like this would be so precious to her!

  65. Jen says:

    My mom is marked by love. 34 years of unconditional love. She lost her husband 7 months ago, my brother and I lost our father, and our friends and family lost the most wonderful man god made for us. I was lucky to have him for 24 years, and my mom knew him for 40. We miss him everyday, but my dads love has marked my moms heart for all eternity, and all of our hearts as well. This is a beautiful necklace!!

  66. Lori Wilson says:

    I haven’t lost a child, but I really never wanted children. God blessed me with a beautiful wonderful son that I didn’t think I wanted. So I have be marked by Love with my son. I have had several illnesses that if it wouldn’t have been for my son I would not have fought the battles to get well. God works in mysterious ways.

  67. Julia Fortenberry says:

    I have been marked by love by a loving Father, a precious husband, two sweet little girls and one more on the way! God is so good!!

  68. Melody says:

    That is so beautiful. What an awesome and beautiful way to honor those precious babies that are in the arms of the Lord.

    I have lost 3 babies and it totally rocked my world. The first one was the hardest because it was a completely unexpected pregnancy, and I lost my baby right as I began to be excited and appreciate the gift God was giving me. I was so so hard for me. But it also help me grow up. I have two beautiful children for whom I am so thankful, and those losses helped me appreciate my life with them even more. I am so thankful for the way God has used my heartbreak.

  69. Katie S says:

    By my sweet family :) They are so wonderful!!

  70. Jaime says:

    Oh, Lisa and Angie… it’s beautiful!

    Angie, I am so sorry for your loss… what a beautiful tribute you and Lisa have come up with in honour of Audrey. She is a lucky little girl to have such a caring mommy and “auntie”.

    I too have been marked by love… twice. I lost my first baby to an ectopic pregnancy in 2004 and most recently gave birth to our Sweet Baby Claire at 17 weeks gestation on Oct 1st, 2009.

    Lisa, you continue to amaze me with all of your creations. Thank you for taking the time to add yet another piece that has has such deep meaning.


  71. Katie says:

    We lost a baby to miscarriage last summer, and Angie’s blog gave me so much encouragement as I grieved that loss. We still cling to the hope that we will have a family someday…

  72. MrsBagley says:

    I am so inspired by parents who have lost their babies. Audrey, Layla Grace, Madalyn Spohr- Heaven must be full of giggles these days.

    It’s just beautiful, Lisa. You’ve got a real winner here.

  73. Anna Sanford says:

    By God’s constant grace…

  74. Tara says:

    I have a friend who lost her baby son last year due to a genetic disorder. He was born at about 29 weeks and they didn’t even know he had the disorder until after he was born. I would LOVE to win one of these necklaces to give to her. Beautiful.

  75. Karen H says:

    I love that Angie talks about the feeling of weightthe weight and warmth of this necklace. Having lost 3 babies in early pregnancy I understand that feeling.

  76. Julie says:

    I have not lost a child, but I know the weight of coming close. When death whispers by, and God allows you to experience being marked by love in a different way. I have read all of Angie’s story. Our ladies bible study is praying for her and her family. Her story has touched many people whom I have passed it along to. I WOULD BE HONORED to own this very special necklace.

  77. Tara says:

    After four years of trying, we were so excited to be expecting a baby….then we lost that precious little one. One year later, God finally granted our request and gave us a beautiful baby girl. Praise His Name!

    The necklace is beautiful!

  78. Stephanie Lawry says:

    I am marked by love by my sweet baby boy Kyle. Though I am blesse to still have him here with me. I know others who have lost children and friends who want a child so badly but have infertility.

  79. Stephanie says:

    Seeing this necklace makes me think of my own mom and how I have been forever changed by her love. I am not only marked by her care for me and my sisters but am continually filled by it.

  80. Karen L says:

    I’ve been marked by love when my darling Mother passed away 02 Aug 1998. I’ve learnt to live with the grief but never gotten over loosing her. She is missed dearly. This neclace would be a constant reminder close to my heart that she is never far away, every!

    Holding thumbs all the way from South Africa.

  81. jule1916 says:

    My husband wanted more children for years before I finally began to think that maybe it would be okay. I got pregnant and had a miscarriage 3 days after I found out, barely time to experience joy. So soon, that I called the Dr. and begged them to tell me that they made a mistake. That I was never really pregnant and as such didn’t have a miscarriage. They wouldn’t make that statement and the guilt of not being sure if I wanted a baby made me think that I caused the miscarriage. I became pregnant again and one day shy of the anniversary of my miscarriage, my son was born. My first boy, and the most joyful baby one could ask for. He has been a blessing beyong measure.

  82. Tara says:

  83. Susan says:

    Absolutely beautiful.

    I had 2 miscarriages after giving birth to four healthy sons. My second miscarriage was a daughter who had Turner’s Syndrome. I was never able to get pregnant again after losing her and ultimately had to have a hysterectomy 2 years later.

    This is a lovely reminder of the daughter that waits in heaven for me to rock.

  84. Sarah P says:

    This necklace is just so beautiful!

  85. Michelle says:

    I have not lost a child but I am in the process of hurting over not getting pregnant. A year and 8 months and still nothing. Still waiting to have that mark of love.

  86. Jaime Bradford says:

    This necklace is beautiful. I have had 2 miscarriages. One I knew was a baby girl. So terribly hard. I have been blessed with children however! God is good. I have a friend who lost her baby boy at 1 year of age. So tragic. Thank you for this gift Lisa.

  87. catherine s. says:

    We have been marked by love through our Heavenly Father…He blessed us with a little girl (now 3) after we lost twins 12 weeks into our first pregnancy…His love has gotten us through many challenges and we’re thankful for his blessings.

    What a wonderful idea for a necklace – I’m sure you’ve touched the hearts of many with this…I was moved by the featured story…thanks for the warning to get tissues – I needed them!

    catherine s.

  88. Julie says:

    blogged this… :)

  89. Kristie says:

    I love this necklace, it is beautiful. I have lost my first child by miscarriage but thankfully I have 4 healthy children but still think about the child I lost, was it a boy or a girl, did he/she have blonde hair, brown hair, blue eyes, brown eyes? I will find that out when I get in heaven with that child though and I am so thankful for that and I get to meet sweet Audrey!! YAY!!!!!

  90. amber d. says:

    I have been marked by love with our miracle baby who is now 5. There is nothing more that I could ever love as much as him!

  91. stephanie says:

    i would like this to give as a gift to my mother in law, who lost her youngest son in a tragic accident 2 years ago. even though he was in his 20’s, she still relies on God’s strength and new mercies to get her through each day.

  92. Kristen says:

    I have a friend that lost her unborn baby six months ago, in a car crash just two short weeks before her due date. Oh to be so close to meeting her daughter and holding that little baby’s warm body. But by the time the medical team could get the baby out, she was already gone. This necklace would be a special token for this grieving mama. I sit here in awe thinking of it’s special design and the way it gets warm. To my dear friend, that warmth, even symbolic, is all she would know of her baby in this world. In addition to that, the weight of it holds a significant symbolism too. I’ve heard my friend express over and over the grief she feels that her baby was not recognized in this life. She’s told me about the way our government has written the laws, allowing the insurance companies to not claim their baby’s medical bills because she never took a breath in this world. To a mother’s heart, it made her grief even greater to know her baby was not recognized as an individual person. I wonder if the special weight of the necklace could bring her some healing, as it represents that her dear Miranda did have weight in this world, regardless of what any law says.

  93. Susan says:

    Just tweeted it…

  94. Michele says:

    For four long years we struggled to conceive….having 3 miscarriages along the way….I never gave up hope that the Lord was there with me…and finally we were blessed with 3 miracles. I have read about Audrey and my heart breaks for her mother….what a beautiful way to remember her….I would be honored to win this necklace

  95. Cheri says:

    I have not lost a biological child to death….but I have lost a foster son to a crippled system. I miss him every day.

    It’s so so sad to read about parents loosing their babies.
    I can’t even imagine anything more painful.
    I’m blessed with love since I’ve met the most wonderful man of the world :)
    The man I share live + home with.

  99. Marcie Noonan says:

    This is an amazing necklace….I lost one of my twins, who was also my only daughter, 3 years ago this May. This would be so special for her anniversary, a beautiful way to keep her memory close. Thank you for this opportunity!!

  100. Casondra says:

    I have been following Angie’s blog since the beginning. The necklace is just beautiful, and has even more of a beautiful meaning. Our Story: Our little princess, Breanna, was born in September of 2007 (at 32 weeks) with D-Transposition of the Great Arteries, an ASD, VSD, and an incomplete atrioventricular canal. She has her 1st open heart surgery at 16 days. A month after we were released from Riley’s, we learned that she has post op stenosis of the pulmonary valve, which would require another surgery, but that they wouldn’t do it until absolutely necessary. At 16 months, we had some testing run on her and found out that she has sleep apnea due to enlarged adenoids/tonsils caused by medication from her first surgery. And that she had negative pressure and hearing loss in her right ear due to prematurity issues. She had her 2nd surgery in February of 2009..just a few days shy of 17 months. In July of 2007, at her annual cardiology appt we found out that she has valve leakage now as well, and in the future will require a valve transplant. We go back to the cardiologist again in 3 months to see where we stand with a date for that surgery. She’s absolutely the light of our life!!!

    I am reminded daily that I am marked by love in how our Lord and Savior gave His life for us. Beautiful necklace with such a powerful meaning behind it.

  102. Julie says:

    I put this on facebook too.

  103. Lisa Arnold says:

    I couldn’t possilbly tell you my story and the stories of the other women I have ministered to without drowing in my own tears. What I can tell you is that I truly believe God used my pain and lonliness to bring Him glory by lifting me up, marking me for His greater purposes and giving me boldness to speak on pregnancy and infant loss.

    I would love to give this gorgeous and yet tender necklace to a woman who’s 5 month old son died in 2008 of unknown causes. They had spent 2 weeks in the PICU were he had his 5 month “birthday” on July 5th and then left this earth less than 48 hours later. This courageous family have grieved over their son as you might expect but have also stepped out of their comfort zone to raise money for a foundation that helps counsel families with similar losses.

    This family lives two hours from me and the mother has heard some painful things from well meaning Christians about her needing salvation in order to ever see her baby again. I have refused to let the distance be a barrier and try to be more loving and understanding – possibly because of my own story. I have the tremendous honor to say that I now have the privilege of praying for their new baby boy…due on July 5th. Tell me God isn’t there!

    I have been marked by love and I try to the best of my ability to share it with those I come in contact with. What joy it would bring to my heart to see the mother of the family I have grown to love these past two years, wearing your jewlery – literally and figuratively marked by love.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read. May healing be felt by the little type written words of other women telling their stories for the very first time, or even those who can’t muster the courage to say anything at all. May blessings pour out on whoever wins the jewlery and yourself Lisa for using your God given talent to touch the lives of others. May the stories bring God all deserved glory :)

  104. Katrina says:

    I am marked by love every day with my wonderful husband and beautiful baby boy! I lost a pregnancy early on, but couldn’t imagine losing a baby later in pregnancy or after birth. It would be so hard!

  105. Gin says:

    Simple. Absolutely love it!

  106. Kristin says:

    I have been searching for a way to create a memory for a dear friend who has had her heart broken twice with the loss of a babe. She has three beautiful children and 22 weeks into her fourth pregnancy the baby died. Eighteen months later they conceived again. Sweet Ian stopped moving at 34 weeks — on Valentine’s Day. He was born perfect in form, but lost to a cord issue a couple of weeks later. They just saw the one year passing of that anniversary. They love the Lord and know their babies are in heaven with him. Still, it aches and confuses and we weep with them. I had recently thought that a necklace with all of her children’s names on it would be a sweet, personal way to remember them and keep them close. This one is beautiful!

  107. Susan says:

    …and I’ve now blogged about it. :)

  108. Julie says:

    tweeted this at twitter as well… guess that does it for my entries… I do so hope I win!!

  109. how precious.

    how have i been marked by love? so many ways! our God is good, isn’t He? He has brought so much love into our lives. and as to the ones we have lost, our precious babies nicholas, kamea, and gloria are in heaven, along with our sweet almost-adopted amanda.

  110. Becky says:

    My husband and I have 3 beautiful boys and one precious baby in heaven. They have all marked us with love and helped us not to take any moment for granted with them and remember how God has allowed us to care for them while they are here on earth. This necklace is beautiful! Love this one!

  111. Lisa says:

    I am marked by His unfailing love……..the blessings God has given me…the amazing Mom I had, the amazing son I am privileged to mother….and the 2 babies in heaven that I will meet one day.

  112. Christina says:

    This necklace reminds me of the Smith family’s strength and how important it is to remember that we all have a story to tell and a purpose. I feel blessed that I came across Angie’s blog and have been able to read Audrey’s story.

    For years, I didn’t know what TRUE love was. I grew up in an abusive household and love was my father being physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive and for my mother, love was keeping her mouth shut. I learned that love meant physical and emotional pain that ran very deep but unspoken of. Because of this, I started to cut myself when I was 12 years old and hid it very well from everybody till I was 15, when I met a woman who has become my best friend, second mother, and formally known as my therapist, JC. She has been with me through thick and thin. She has never hurt me, always been honest with me, and most importantly, shown me what unconditional love truly is. When I was cutting 6-8 times a day for a year, she still loved me. When I was angry at her, for whatever reason, she still loved me. When I made mistakes, she still loved me. This love was very new to me but greatly needed.

    Now, I am 21 years old, 2-3 years safe, and JC still loves me. Through this love, I have been able to learn and gain the most important love of all, loving myself. I know now that without love for myself, I would not be able to truly love others. My intention of writing this comment was to enter to win Audrey’s necklace for myself. However, after writing all of this and looking back, I’d like to receive this necklace and give it to my best friend and therapist, JC. I have been one of her toughest, if not THE toughest client she has ever had. This necklace will help to remind her to continue to do the amazing work that she does, teach LOVE, and give her an extra boost of inspiration when she has another tough client and then can have the necklace and remember that it’s all worth it. She went through several miscarriages many years ago and therefore, was never able to have her own children. She too struggled with love, feeling as though she wasn’t good enough to carry a child. Now, she knows that she is SURROUNDED by children because she was able to love herself through all of that suffering.

    Thanks to the Smith Family for THEIR unconditional love and Lisa, this is a BEAUTIFUL necklace.

  113. Cheri Estle says:

    One of my very best friends is the mother of one of the boys who died as a result of the Bluffton University bus crash 3 years ago. As a matter of fact, she and her family buried that son 3 years ago today. She is an amazing woman of faith, but I have to say, something like this shakes even the faith of the saints! She is growing stronger every day, but will never outlive this loss. She has been touched by love in so many ways; ways that increase her faith with every passing day. She definitely needs one of these necklaces and I will see that she gets one somehow. Thanks for putting your heart and soul into this.

  114. Krystle says:

    I lost my baby just before Christmas, but that will always be a part of me. I’m marked by that love and the love Christ has given me. These are just beautiful Lisa!

  115. Erica says:

    This necklace is so beautiful. If I am chosen, I plan on giving this necklace to my husband’s best friend’s mother. Curtis was killed in a car accident just over 2 years ago and I know this would touch her heart. My prayers is that it would remind her of God’s peace and that she will indeed see Curtis again someday.

  116. Krystle says:

    I put this link on my facebook for an extra entry!! Crossing my fingers! :) :)

  117. Kellan says:

    My sweet Au-b-rey, was born in August of 2009, and is the light of our lives. I got hooked on Angie’s blog early on in my pregnancy last year, and was so moved by her honesty and willingness to be used by God. I love that she is open and honest about her life’s journey and struggles, and that she’s been led to share it with others. What a gift!
    I had not picked out a name yet, but I think it was God’s little hint on what to name my daughter. So through the sweet name of Audrey Caroline, came Aubrey Virginia.

  118. Ang says:

    I love the open heart design. It reminds me that while my heart will always have an empty spot for my brother, it is filled with love from his two young boys who I am raising with my own children. What a lovely sentiment!

  119. JenFlen says:

    I have the most sweet, precious, little boy to hold, kiss and tuck into bed every night. And each night as he’s blowing me kisses, I remember to never, NEVER take it for granted. We lost our first child, and that pain and sorrow never goes away. But we know our first baby is at peace and our second child has restored the love in our hearts. What a truly special necklace!

  120. miracle says:

    I’m in early labor right now with my second child. So grateful that he appears healthy and so inspired by the love of all the babies who have not made it. Marked by love….it’s perfect. I’d love to wear this myself.

  121. Krystle says:

    I blogged about this for an extra entry!! I HOPE I WIN!! :)

  123. Lori says:

    My amazing husband and my precious daughter mark me with their love every day.

    Your work is beautiful! Many thanks for offering this giveaway.


  124. Kat says:

    I just came over here from Angie’s page, and the necklace (especially the sentiment behind it) is absolutely beautiful. I guess my “connection” to Angie would be that I too have been marked by the tragedy and absolute pure and perfect love of saying goodbye to a baby too, too soon. Our firstborn son Dylan died 6 days after birth. I feel his presence and love in my heart every day; I have forever been marked by this loss and the love that I feel for my son.

  125. Linda w says:

    I have just spent the last 4 months helping my son’s ex-girlfriend through her loss. Unfortunately they are not together any more, he chose not to grieve with her so I stepped in. She has had a very rough 4 months with many complications and is finally starting to feel better. So last year I lost 2 grand babies. One at 5 months and one at 2 months along. I wish I could give this necklace to each of the moms. Unfortunately times are tough and I can’t do that. Winning one would be so important to me. I could share in their healing process. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  126. Ang says:

    Tweeted via ang4prez: “Marked by love” necklace with a message by Lisa Leonard. So lovely AND she’s giving two away!

  127. Jennifer says:

    I am marked by love by my sweet daughter, Hannah Claire. My husband and I tried for a long time to get pregnant, and Hannah was definitely worth the wait! :)

  128. stephanie says:

    I am forever marked by the love my children have shown to my husband. He has battled cancer and it’s like my children can feel it. They want to surround him all the time and never leave his side. I will never forget their innocence and love they show.

  129. Alycia Rega says:

    Just beautiful. I absolutely love this piece! My husband and I have been blessed with three living children and four precious babies in heaven. Most recently, we miscarried this past November for the fourth time. We have been marked by love in ways that I would have never known had we not walked these paths. It’s not paths “I” would have chosen, but I am grateful for the depth of love that the Lord has shown to us. We are forever grateful for our living children and have never and will never take a moment of their lives for granted. I have been searching for a jewelry piece to wear that symbolizes our babies in heaven. This is perfect!

  130. Bobbi says:

    Yes, I have suffered loss in my life, but I’m not entering for myself. I’ve been reading the blog of a young woman for a while now. Back in December she lost her little girl to SMARD. This beautiful necklace would allow Kendra to keep her daughter close to her heart at all times.

    This is Kenra’s blog – She and I have never met, nor have we ever spoke. I am just incredibly heart broken for what she and other mother’s go through regarding the loss of a child.

  131. Sue says:

    I did not lose a baby, but I did lose a teenager. She was 17 years old when she was killed in a car accident in 1985. A day does not go by that i don’t think about her!!! I am so sorry for your friends loss!!

  132. Jaime says:

    “Facebooked” it…

  133. Jaime says:

    Sent it to all of my Babyloss Blogger Mamas…
    Thank you over and over and over. xo

  134. Timmarie says:

    My friend lost her sweet 8 month old son almost 2 years ago. I would love to give her this necklace.

  135. Mary Jo says:

    I can’t even begin to list the ways that God has completely marked my life with love….the biggest way is our sweet little boy who turned 2 in December. Shortly after his birth, and after scoring 9s and 10s on his Agpgar tests, both of his lungs spontaneously collapsed. Grayson spent 4 days in the NICU with countless prayers being said for him. He was “miraculously healed” – according to the neonatalogist…who (to our knowledge) was not a believer. Our God is a BIG and gracious God!

  136. Kelly says:

    Lisa, I have forever been touched by two of my babies. One we adopoted out in high school to a great family. The other was a baby I lost 10 years and love just as much as my others. I love this necklace and the idea that you and the necklace are combined and you warm it! I love all your work, you do it so well :)

  137. Stephanie says:

    In memory of “Eden” – miscarried July 2006

  138. dawn says:

    I absolutely love this, Lisa. Thanks for making it.

    I have been marked by love by my sweet son Aidan, who died at age 4 months, 6 days. I cannot begin to explain all the ways he has made his mark on me. God has used his short life in to touch many.

    I would love one of these necklaces!

  139. kelly says:

    facebooked it!

  140. Lisa says:

    My sweet Victoria Michelle was stillborn at 26 weeks. I learned so much through my experience and hope to one day be able to help and give to others who are going through similar experiences.

  141. Makila says:

    I love it!

  142. Brianne says:

    The comments here are so filled with love – it is warming my heart reading all the stories.
    I have the most amazing mom. She is my best friend, she is always there for me, and the most supportive person I know. I would LOVE to win one of these to give to her for Mother’s Day this year.
    She is my biggest fan, and I couldn’t love her more.
    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  143. Sarah K says:

    What a gorgeous necklace and tribute! I would love to get one of these necklaces as a gift for my cousin who has lost two babies, Ryan and Hope, before they had a chance to be born. You better believe I’ll be putting in every entry I can. Thank you Lisa!

  144. Sarah K says:

    Blogging this giveaway and keeping my fingers crossed!

  145. dawn says:

    tweeted about this awesome giveaway!

  146. kelly says:

    blogged about it :)

  147. Jennifer says:

    I have never been marked by love in the ways that so many of the ladies above have been mentioned. But I have been marked by the ring that is on my left hand and the two sweet children that have left my body far from perfect but my heart fuller with love.

    I have a friend that just lost her 5 year old son and as much as I would love to win this necklace and keep if for myself, I would even more love to give it to Nicki for her sweet Isaiah.

  148. Faith says:

    I was marked by love in my son, Aaron, born February 18, 2008, died April 8, 2008.

  149. dawn says:

    just facebooked it!

  150. Erin M. says:

    So blessed to have two healthy little boys that light up our lives- what a reminder to cherish what we have!

  151. Erin M. says:

    OH! and our first little boy would have been “Audrey Caroline” if HE had been a girl! (we didn’t find out gender beforehand) What a coincidence.

  152. Oh how I would love to gift this to my sweet friend who just lost her three week old, Khaleb. I’ts absolutely beautiful!

  153. Lindsay says:

    I have 4 beautiful daughters that I cherish each so deeply! I wanted and prayed for the first 3, and prayed that in the years to come we would have a 4th. God choose that I needed that 4th sooner! So when my 3rd was 13 months old, I found out we were granted the priveldge to have one more! Thank you God for baby Reese! What a gift to share her with me!

  154. Claire says:

    My mom has been marked by love. Her first pregnancy was twins, one night she went in to check on them and one had stopped breathing. She lost one of her first borns that night. 6 years later, her husband, my father, got very sick and died, leaving her to raise me and my two brothers alone. She put all her love into taking care of us and raising us. Now that my older brother is married and moved away, and myself and younger brother are in college, she is experiencing her life for the first time in years.

  155. Angela says:

    I lost a little one too and it probably wasn’t much bigger than this necklace when I did, so I’d like to enter to win please.

    I love this by the way…

  156. Stacey says:

    We lost our third child due do miscarriage, and it just really leaves a mark on a person. The pregnancy had been a total surprise, and it took me a long time to get used to the idea of a third child, only to find out that our little one was gone. That just really affirmed to me that I DID want another child, and our little Emery Shae was conceived a few months later.

  157. Aimee W. says:

    I have been marked by love by my precious husband and children! I hope i win because I know just who I would give this to!

  158. Kristin says:

    I’ve had a super rough couple of years emotionally… DH has been so supportive and there for me…he has been an example of Christ’s love to me in many ways.

  159. Suzy Jennings says:

    I am Suzy Jennings. I have been marked by love by reading the stories of several families that have lost their babies. One was a sunday school member. I reminded me how I have been marked by love by my own precious children and my husband. God has truly marked me by love in all He does!

  160. Sonya says:

    I have been marked by love with the birth of my stillborn son Carson. He was born at 22 weeks and will forever remain in my heart. What a wonderful tribute to Audrey. I follow Angie’s blog and was so touched by the story of Audrey and the love this family has.

  161. Karen says:

    I have been marked by love by my sweet daughter Faith that was stillborn on 10/28/08. She has forever touched my life and I would love a necklace with her name on it. Thank you for this opportunity!


  162. angela says:

    Would love one in memory of my stillborn son Joel born at 32 weeks.

  163. STEPHANIE says:


  164. On October 19, 2009 I learned what real love was. My son was born still at 37 weeks. We do not have any answers as to why this happened. I would do it all over again just to feel the way I feel about him. He impacted my life forever. He taught me more in the nine months I had him, then I have learned in my whole life. I am no longer the same person. Your necklace is beautiful. I love the fact that it warms against your skin. I have followed Angie’s journey for a couple years and thought “I could never do that” and here I am. I know we have a loveing God who looks out for us and is aware of our situations. If it is possible to feel this much pain, I know it is possible to feel happiness to this extreme.

  165. Christina says:

    I have been marked by love by my maternal grandparents. My grandfather died when I was in 2nd grade, and my grandmother battled Alzeimer’s and passed when I was a sophomore in high school I think of them all the time.

  166. I’ve been marked by love through the loss of my daughter, Rayin. I had only 7 weeks left in my pregnancy when she died. Finding Angie’s blog was therapeutic for me. The Lord is higher and knows more than I do and through this death, I found an amazing Father and know that I will one day hold her once again, but this time she will be warm!

  167. Sallie says:

    I have been marked by love in more ways than I can count. The fact that God loves me more than anyone on earth ever could is so remarkable. I just can’t wrap my head around it.

  168. Ashley says:

    I was marked by love when my son Deacon was born 19 months ago. It is overwhelming to feel the love that God gives us for our children. Then just a few months ago I had an ectopic pregnancy. To lose a baby that you had wanted and prayed for is a terrible experience, but at the same time it was faith building time. My husband got me the original necklace with my sons name on it around Christmas, but I would love to have a necklace for the memory of the baby that would have been born this summer.

  169. Sallie says:

    Facebooked about the contest too.

  170. I have been marked by love by my entire extended family. The love and support they show one another is amazing!

  171. I love this necklace. I’d wear it to remind me how lucky I am and how marked by God’s love I am to have two healthy children. There’s no greater gift.

  172. My two daughters are how I’ve been marked by love. It’s amazing how God can show us Himself through our children. Love. Love. Love. this new piece.

  173. Jenna says:

    wow, such beautiful touching stories. my mark of love is simple and common, but it was still hard to go through. we lost our baby at 7 weeks just 3 days before christmas this past year. i didn’t realize how much it affected me until we found out we got pregnant again 2 weeks later (accidently). we didn’t know until i was already 7 weeks along. and you the questions like why then? why me? why does this have to be part of my story now? but i know that god has a purpose and a plan for everything. and we are so blessed and thankful that “god gave us another baby in mommy’s tummy” as my 5 year old daughter tells everybody.

  174. Amy says:


  175. Hailey says:

    My cousin was marked by love one week ago tomorrow by her sweet little boy, Cash, who was never meant to play on this earth. He was a perfect, precious little boy who was given to us for a reason & taken away for reasons that we may never understand. I would love to give this beautiful necklace to her in remembrance of his life, even though he never took a breath outside of his sweet Mama’s womb.

  176. My sweet friend has had two early miscarriages while everyone around her is giving birth. I’d love to have this necklace for her.

    I bear the mark of the cross and I hope I show that every day!


  177. I lost one of my best friends when he was 17, in a car accident. Years later, there’s still not a day that I don’t think about him, and I would love to have such a beautiful necklace to wear in his honour.

  178. Well, on January 6, 2010, at 11:16pm, my husband and I gave birth to our first child, a beautiful baby girl we named Layla. Then at 11:50 pm she was welcomed back to her heavenly Father. She was born without kidneys just like Angie’s daughter Audrey. We have been marked by the love of others, often complete strangers. There have been SO MANY, who have shared their pain with us, but also their joy and peace that God has surrounded them with. We finally were able to have our beach paddle out service this past Saturday and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! The sun was shining, we were surrounded by friends and family and several dolphins came along to share in our moment!!!
    We have been marked by the LOVE OF CHRIST!!! Our ultimate sacrifice, the one who gave His life that we may have eternal life so that we will one day see our daughter again!!!!!!!

  179. Sharalyn says:

    While I myself could use this necklace (4 miscarriages), I am thinking of my cousin and his wife. While they have 6 children present here on earth, their second daughter was stillborn from Turner’s Syndrome. I know Sheri would love something like this to remind her of of their sweet Katelyn Joelle.

  180. Coral says:

    I would love to win this for my friend who lost her sweet baby boy Noah.
    thank you!

  181. Jean Marie says:

    What a beautiful and sweet necklace…I love that it retains heat, and reminds you that it’s there….that it holds a meaning…like your heart holds your baby…

    I would love to give this to one of my dear friends who lost her baby at 20wks…..

  182. suzanne wunnenberg says:

    I love this necklace. It is beautiful and meaningful. I have been marked by love after years of infertility my heart has been changed by 7 beautiful babies. Four of my children are with Jesus. I have one biological daughter and an adopted daughter and adoted son that have changed and marked m heart forever. This necklace that God has marked my heart in His way for His glory!

  183. What a beautiful necklace. Your jewellery is amazing, so beautiful and so meaning ful. each piece seems to be made with love.

  184. Kristen says:

    SO beautiful. I am marked by love and by grace alone through the birth and placement of my birthdaughter, Hannah.

  185. Lindsay says:

    This is an absolutely beautiful necklace and so wonderful for Angie. Her story has been so poignant to read and has touched so deeply on how a mother honors and loves her child. What a wonderful tribute.

  186. Sara says:

    Wow, I love reading about this story and this necklace is amazing. I have several people I would love to give it to! :)

  187. Sonya says:

    Here is the link to my blog with the post about it. I LOVE this necklace! Thanks Lisa, for ALL your beautiful designs!

  188. Gillie says:

    I have lost two babies but still feel very blessed to have had them even for such a short time. Each of them has forever marked my heart.

  189. Tina says:

    13 years ago I welcomed my beautiful daughter Hailey Grace into the world to olny have to give her back 3 weeks later, I know I will be with her again one day in heaven and I am reminded everyday of Gods love when I look at my second daughter SofiaGrace. I would love to have their names together on a necklace…

  190. That is absolutely beautiful. My 3 children mark my life by love every day. I am so grateful that even though it isn’t always easy….it is always worth it! God makes beauty out of so many of the ashes of my life and I am eternally thankfull!

    Thanks for the chance to win!!


  191. Jenifer T. says:

    I had a little one go home to be with Jesus at 15 wks gestation. My heart goes out to any woman who has experienced the same thing. My dear friend had a premature birth at 23 wks and her little boy Noah lived for 22 days and then went home to be with the Lord. Another friend miscarried her little baby Jed at 15 wks as well. I would have you do one of their names for them. Whether joy or sorrow there is comfort knowing the Lord works everything for our good. ♥

  192. Beautiful, touching story. Beautiful, touching jewelry.
    I have two beautiful children. My first ‘baby’ will be turning 12 soon.
    I was marked by love first by my parents. Then my husband. Now my children carry that on.
    Enjoy the day!

  193. Melanie Y says:

    I miscarried twice in my first trimester…and then finally I made it past my first trimester with my third pregnancy and I thought wow, I get to keep this little miracle. I was forced to terminate pregnancy in at 22 1/2 weeks because of an in utero infection that would have killed both of us. Teresa Isabella was born sleeping January 12, 2008. My heart aches for her. God is great though, and six months later I became pregnant for the fourth time and this time my little miracle Kara was born alive and healthy! She just turned one two weeks ago! This necklace would signify a peice of both of them in my heart.

    I tweeted about this give away @aswegrow

  195. And Tweeted it (@grownupteenager)

  196. Fontaine says:

    So, so beautiful. I would love to win one for my little sister and the angel she has waiting in heaven. Thank you-

  197. April says:

    Almost 5 years ago I had a miscarriage with my first pregnancy – it was hard, but I know there will be a day that I meet that precious child. And it makes me all the more cherish my two boys!

  198. Stephanie Tyler says:

    My cousin lost twin boys, Will and Wyatt, this time last year. They were born at 21 weeks. Will lived 6 weeks and Wyatt lived 8 weeks. They are precious to our family and will be forever loved. They touched so many lives through their short lives. This necklace would be a priceless gift for her to remember her little angel babies. It took her 3 years to conceive these little miracles…they are her only children she has been able to hold in her arms and over her heart….

  199. Kelly Isaacson says:

    My name is Kelly and I have cerebral palsy, and, although I would love the necklace for myself, I can think of someone who would love it more. Her name is Natasha, and she is one of my best friends. She also has cerebral palsy. About a month ago, at 20 weeks, she and her husband went in to find out the gender of the baby, and instead found out that their sweet little boy had passed away several weeks earlier. He had spina bifida, and the doctors believe that the fluid on and around little Jeremiah’s brain compressed on the part that controls heart function. I would love to be able to give this necklace as a gift to her, as a reminder that she, her husband, and little Jeremiah is still in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for the opportunity!

  200. Amy says:

    In 2009, my husband and I were touched by love not once, but twice. We lost our pregnancy in February and I lost my father, my hero, in September. We have been on an incredible journey to conceive again equipped with pills, injections, ultrasounds, bloodwork…you name it. My father is sitting beside our Lord and meeting our hopeful future child. Sharing stories and endeavors of what’s to come. In 2009 I was re-shaped as a person. In 2009 I was touched by love.

  201. Brittany says:

    My 5 great children have not only made me a mom, but have taught me what it’s like to love unconditionally!
    What a beautiful piece of jewelry the Marked by Love necklace is! I wouldn’t expect anything less though as all your pieces are gorgeous!

  203. Amie says:

    My dear friend’s baby was born-still on Saturday. The outpouring of love for her and her family has been just amazing. She is not the first person in our circle of friends to have experienced a loss (in fact, more of us have than have not at this point) and every time I am amazed by the love we have for each other. God is so good. He placed each of us right here where we needed to be so we could love and support our friend. If I were to win this necklace I would give it to her, with her baby’s name on the back. Rest in peace, sweet baby girl Hosanna Rest.

  204. Tara says:

    Three of my beautiful babies were sent to Jesus before we were able to meet them. Thankfully, our Ultimate Physician, our Lord and Savior, has since blessed us with an amazing 1 year old boy who we love and cherish each and every day. Thank you Lisa for this wonderful opportunity to have a necklace that symbolizes the love that we have for our little angels.

  205. My brother-in-law and his wife lost their son three days after his 21st birthday. He was their only child. I would so love to give my sister-in-law this necklace with his name etched on the back.

  206. lauren says:

    what a beautiful and powerful piece! i’ve been marked by love. i became a single mother at the age of 16, and i always longed for another child. to my surprise, 11 years later, i had another child, and he is the light of my life! our family (almost) feels complete… maybe we will have one more! <3

  208. Karina says:

    “Marked by love” by two amazing, sweet boys.

  209. I have bloged about how I have been Marked by Love. Here is the post:

  210. Sara says:

    My firstborn was born 14 weeks early – he fought hard for 5 days but eventually went to be with Jesus. He is forever in my heart – watching him fight and endure needle sticks and blood transfusions – more than I have been through as an adult. I now have a baby girl and I know that Samuel watches over us. I know that I will keep his memory alive for Payton.
    This necklace is beautiful. I would love to wear it as a reminder of my little boy’s life.

  211. Rebecca says:

    The Lord who is merciful, faithful, and full of lovingkindness- is marked by love. I’m so thankful for His great salvation!

  212. mandie says:

    Friends of ours lost their 3 year old last week, and I am just so encouraged by how strong they’ve been. If I won, I’d give this to her little mommy with sweet Bethany’s name on it.

  213. Maureen says:

    wow! Its beautiful! I also just lost a precious loved one to the fight of cancer. She was one of my best friends, and I will always be marked with love by her :)

  214. Dava says:

    My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for 4 years now. I finally got pregnant in 2008 with identical twin boys. We lost Joshua at 8 weeks and Christian at 18 weeks. I also lost another baby last summer at just 6 weeks so we never knew his/her gender. I have considered making my “mark” with a tattoo of Christian’s footprints (the only ones I have) but I love the idea of a necklace to represent all of them. And I know my husband really prefers the idea of a necklace to a tattoo. 😉
    Your jewelry is very beautiful. Thank you for adding something for those of us who have lost our little ones.

  215. Ada says:

    I have lost two babies by miscarriage. One was just last November. I am pregnant again (5weeks Praise God) and we are praying and praying that we get to hold this baby and kiss its sweet face.

    God has blessed me with a beautiful daughter and a handsome son. His goodness and His blessings amaze me every day.

    I would love to have a necklace to remind me of my two angel babies that I will kiss someday in Heaven.

    Your jewelry is amazing…I will send my husband to your store for Mothers Day!

  216. Ruth Ann says:

    I was marked by love when my {dear} friend had a baby early and he lived for only a short time. I will forever remember him. :)

  217. STEPHANIE says:


  218. Georgianne says:

    What a precious necklace! It is a beautiful way to remember.

  219. Mia says:

    I am marked by the love & life of my own sweet Alexa Rose, who was stillborn in June of 2008. I love your work, Lisa, and would love to win a piece. Thanks for the opportunity and for honoring Audrey & Angie in this way. Her blog has been a blessing to me in my own journey in grief. Bless you.

  220. Sarah T. says:

    Since my son Cylas passed away, I’ve been looking for something to remember him by. I’ve got a bracelet but it just doesn’t seem like it’s enough. My son was born 12/24/07 and was with me for 3 precious weeks before he died of sepsis. My heart and life have totally been changed because of his death. I am determined not to forget him or let anyone else forget my son was here. He was here, he was real. I held him in my arms and soothed him when he cried. Just because he physically is not here doesn’t mean he’s gone for good. He lives on in my life, I carry him in my heart, and miss him everyday.

    My life has been touched by this special little special who entered into Heaven too soon. I have been touched by his love from heaven for 26 months. I would love to have necklace like this one to honor my son, Cylas.

    Thank you for doing this, it’s beautiful.

  221. Tanya Stout says:

    I would love to win this necklace to give to my sister-in-law. Five weeks ago, she lost her sweet 16 year old step-son (my brother’s child from his first marriage) to suicide. It has been such a terrible time for our family. I can’t even begin to imagine what they are going through when what we are going through is so hard. I would love to give this to her as a reminder of the love and relationship she shared with him and that she will have him again one day.

  222. I would give this to my cousin and his wife who lost a baby girl name Chloe 7 years ago in June.

  223. Karina says:

    What a beautiful necklace.

    After 2 years of infertility trying for our 4th child we were able to get pregnant through IVF, and miscarried at 6 weeks, baby Trista. Six months later we were given 5 embryos through a donation program. We transferred 2 embryos and I got pregnant with twins and sadly miscarried again at 7 weeks, babies Sam & David. These losses profoundly changed who I am and how I view life.

    But, I think if I were to win the necklace, I would want it for my niece, Amber, who bravely carried a baby she knew would die because of Trisomy 18. At age 21 she showed more maturity and grace than I think I could have mustered at any age. She got to hold and love her baby Mason for 5 miraculous days before sending him to the arms of Jesus. And even now she recognizes what a gift Mason was because he brought her and her husband to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and changed the course of their lives for all eternity! AMEN!

  224. Samantha says:

    I’d like to pass this on to my friend Amanda who of four children had only one survive birth. It be in honor of the strength and courage she showed losing her boys.

  225. When I laid my son in the arms of Jesus, after 30 hours on life support, I began to grasp the meaning of redemption. Nothing is wasted in God’s economy ~ not even the death of a child. He has promised to redeem back all this fallen world tries to claim as its own. The true mark of love is found in His nail-pierced hands that paid the price to redeem my future, in spite of the tragic loss of my precious son, Scott.

  226. faith says:

    I am a breast cancer survivor. I couldn’t have done it without all
    of my family’s support and the prayers of friends. My two boys were very young at the time,
    and I did not have time to dwell on my own misery. Thank God for needy children.

  227. Stefanie says:

    Gorgeous new piece!! I do love it…and think it is a perfect piece to represent Angie’s daughter, Audrey! I love Angie’s description of the necklace on her blog….beautiful! Great work, ladies!! Another stunning piece…wow!

  228. Christy says:

    Friends of ours lost their 10.5 month old baby girl, Ezri, after the babysitter fell down the stairs while holding her. I would love to win this necklace to give to them to remind them that they are not the only ones who will never forget their sweet baby girl.

  229. I love this!! I have recently found your blog! I hope to owm one of your pieces on day soon!!

    Blessings Tiffany

  230. Lori Taylor says:

    I love love love this necklace. I was marked by love by my special needs son Andrew. It has brought our family closer together especially at the most difficult times.

  231. Angie says:

    I was marked by love when my first daughter, Olivia, was born and shared her short 10 days with us.

  232. I have been so touched by Audrey’s story. What a beautiful, beautiful way to honor her.

    I’ll be blogging (, tweeting (spunkyjmonkey), and Facebooking about this :)

  233. Debbie Kim says:

    So beautiful, in meaning and visually. I am marked by love because I am saved by the grace. :) My miracle heart baby is also proof of that everlasting love. Have a great day!

  234. Megan Crume says:

    My daughter, Naomi Elizabeth was perfct in every way. How I wish she were still with us.

    I would love to win a necklace…

  235. Lori Taylor says:


  236. Danielle says:

    I would love to give this to my friend who has gone through several losses!

  237. what would I do with it? I’m not so giving as some who have commented – I would wear it as a reminder to love, even if I might lose…

  238. Ashley Rainey says:

    gorgeous necklace, I would be honored to wear one.

  239. I tweeted! (@arestlessheart)

  240. I have also facebooked about it! Love your beautiful work!

  241. vicki says:

    Amazing tribute. My three children have forever left their mark on me…

  242. And I posted it on Facebook…

  243. Lindsay says:

    I lost my precious baby Zoe after 19 days of her living on a vent in the N.I.C.U. Having to take her off that machine and hold her until she took her last precious breath was the most painfully beautiful experience I’ve ever had.
    I would love to have the necklace, and like Angie mentioned, remember that yes, she did have weight in this world. I love the design and I love that’s it’s simple and beautiful, like my Zoe.
    I’ve loved your peices, but never seem to have the extra money to purchase one.
    Even if I don’t win, I’m sure that someone will be greatly blessed by winning. Thank you for your great kindness in offering this giveaway..

  244. CarrieAnn Fullington says:

    My name is CarrieAnn Fullington. I am a mom to two children, one here on earth, Corey, who’s 13 and our little Angel Abby Lynn who we lost in December of 2009. Let me tell you about me.
    I met my husband Sean after graduation.We got engaged after a week of dating.We were married shortly later.Then came Corey.We were soo excited. We tried for years for another child. It never happened. I tested positive for Lynch Syndrome Last summer. What that means is that I carry the cancer gene in my body at all times, and unlike others, my chances jump higher then an average person’s chances to develop cancer. Right now, it’s dormant. I was on my final test last year when they found out I was pregnant. We werent even trying. Here I was, 13yrs later, pregnant.I was in total shock.Both of us were actually.After going to the doctor, it was confirmed, I was two months pregnant.
    After we told everyone,a nd started making plans…December rolled around…and Dec 1st…our world was flipped upside down.Went in after noticing there was blood in the tiolet.They couldnt find the heartbeat.They told me not to worry. I knew something was wrong.Then they did the ultrsound.Our precious little child no longer had a heartbeart. Dec 4th, Little Abby Lynn was born into the world. I had to have her naturually.They found out that there is a 8inch fibroid in my cervix that my new doc believes caused the miscarriage. I held my precious child for hours that day until it was her time to leave us. My husband and I named her Abby. Abby Lynn Fullington.She was the little girl we were praying for, hoping for, wishing for in years.My husbands cousin works for a funeral home, he came to get her, and we gave her a proper rest. Noone tells you, or warns you how painful miscarriage or infant loss is. We left there empty handed. They gave us the blanket she had.That,a nd pics of our little girl. To this day, our family is shaken to the core. We had to celebrate christmas with no Abby.New years, No Abby. I keep track of the days. Everyday we visit her.Noone but the women who have lost thiers understand me. My birthday was feb 2nd, and my husband had a stroke. Two weeks later, our son winds up in the hospital.. he dislocated his kneecap,and required a brace that finally has been removed..My husband has lost his job. Everything that can go wrong, has gone wrong. I feel there’s no up anymore..I am hoping to win this necklace. This is my little girls blog, she was born at 3 1/2mos, and we held her for hours. I Blog to her everyday, sometimes twice a day.I will face book this as well.I hope to win it, and really would like something to go right for once in my life.
    Thank you for your time.
    CarrieAnn Fullington, mommy to angel Abby Lynn

  245. jen says:

    i am marked every day by the love and honor it is to be a mother. My girls Gracelyn and Bella have changed my life forever. I never understood the depth and vast beauty of life until I became a mother. I lost my own mother to cancer when I was 15. Having gone through that Im constantly reminded of my own mortality– and to cherish each day I have with those I love. I don’t have a neclace like this yet- but I think it’s a beautiful way to keep them near my heart even when I’m not with them.

  246. Ten days past my due date –
    Just finished our Thanksgiving meal,
    when I felt the first pangs of childbirth.

    After sixteen hours of labor,
    Scott William Redfern came into our world –
    November 23, 1979.

    For sixteen hours I labored to birth him into our family –
    Only son . . . only sibling . . . only grandson.

    Sixteen hours of labor reaped sixteen years of life.
    Today it seems as if those long sixteen hours eclipse
    the short sixteen years of life on earth.

    It is once again, November 23rd, Scott.
    I strain to picture you as a man
    but all I see is your boyish smile.

    It is once again the season of Thanksgiving,
    November –
    and I am once again feeling the pangs of childbirth.

    How I long to hold you, my son.
    How I long to cradle you in my arms,
    to kiss you and tell you how hard it is to once again wait to see you.

    How I, too, long to be born again into that glorious eternal rest
    where you and I shall be reunited together – forever.


  247. AmberK says:

    Sweet Audrey’s life did have weight! This past year I have become friends with our neighbors Aaron and Amber. Such a sweet, faithful family. They tried for years to have a baby and finally with medical help, adorable Hannah was born into this world to light it up! Three years ago, Amber became pregnant again-after miscarriages and more medical failures-and they were ecstatic. Their baby girl, Grace, didn’t live. They have a garden for her out front of their home and it’s a sweet reminder of her life to them…They have, this past summer, adopted a gorgeous baby girl named Nora. I see them out together or see Aaron with his daddy’s girls :) and my heart feels so full for them. Then I think of Grace and how her life has meaning though no one else got to meet her…They are fixing to move to California (We are in MO) and I’m so sad to see them go!! Their light from their log cabin lights up at night and I’m reminded to hug my sons and pray for so many each night. Their friendship and their daughters, all three of them, have made an impact on our life and I’d love to be able to hand this necklace to Amber before they leave for California…(By the way, we share a name! It’s not a typo :) )
    You have a gift in your jewelry making…I’ll be sure to add your site to my favorites and to spread the word!
    Thanks and have a great day

  248. I tweeted it as well! @myluv4flowers Thanks Lisa!

  249. Allison says:

    My friend Rachel just celebrated her son’s first heavenly birthday last week. I would love to give her this beautiful reminder to her to wear proudly. Thank you for the giveaway!

  250. Rachel says:

    Love it… such a beautiful piece.

  251. Heather says:

    I have two precious children on earth and one in Heaven who have left their mark on me. I love them so much!

  252. heather says:

    A beautiful tribute to a beautiful angel. I have not lost a child. But my mother did – she lost my older sister to prematurity and she held that sadness all her life. I would wear this in their memory.

  253. my precious sister died in childbirth 8 years ago yesterday. we are forever marked by her love and her precious son is a reminder to us of her beauty every day.

  254. Teresa says:

    I’ve been marked by the love of my 3 beautiful children.

  255. I lost my daughter Hayden Grace 3 years ago. I would love to have a constant reminder of her.

  256. carla says:

    This is such a lovely piece!!

  257. Suzy Jennings says:

    I just Facebooked about my Marked by Love life!

  258. ANdrea says:

    I would gift this to a friend who lost her adult son last year. So special…

  259. Jesica says:

    What a beautiful, meaningful necklace. I have been marked by love through the love and grace of my heavenly Father and my dear husband and son. Everyday I feel so blessed to have loved so much and lost so little.

  260. Sarah says:

    My son Dylan was stillborn just over five years ago, and this necklace would mean the world to me. I love that it’s a heavier necklace that has “weight” just like our precious babies who have gone before us.

  261. Tina says:

    What a beautiful necklace. I love it!! We lost our first baby to a tubal pregnancy. It was such a hard thing to go through. I know that God loves me and my family so much. And we have been marked by his love by having two wonderful boys.

  262. camille says:

    I am a mother of three boys. One of them has a challenging learning disability. As a mom, I see how he struggles and triumph’s on a given day. On the days he struggles, I pray and hope that he can make it in life on his own someday. On the days where it’s all good and he is happy, it gives me peace of mind that all will be ok for now. It’s our LOVE, and support system in our family that carries him through the difficult times. We are fearful of the future, but face it confidently that LOVE will overcome all obstacles.

    (mommy to michael,aaron, and james)

  263. Crystal says:

    I am touched by love everyday, I have 3 beautiful and wonderful children. My 1st son was born 10 weeks early and show me how strong he was and my heart grew more and more everyday. He is now 14 and has more love then anyone would ever know.
    I had anther son after him 7 years later and he was born healthy and was my big lovey boy. 2 years after that my daughter showed a big lesson on love and life, when I was 5 months along with her we learned she had many medical issues and she would most likely die at birth if not before. The Doctor thought we should stop the pregnancy but I kept going knowing its in Gods hands now. When she was born she was placed in the NICU and we learned she has CHARGE Syndrome, Eva is out butterfly she has really learned to spread her wing and fly and show the world she is here and here to stay. She will be 5 next month and she has taught us so much while she has been here and how strong, determined and that God is with us in so many ways.
    Thank you for all you do for other families,

  264. Christie Tomes says:

    My neice lost a very precious baby boy, we were given the chance to hold him and then he went on to be with God. The pain that my neice has had is unbearable, as it would be for anyone. I would give this necklace to her as a constant reminder of how she has been marked by love, and that his love will be with her forever.

  265. Jenn says:

    Each month for the last 4 1/2 years, I’ve mourned the loss of a child…it’s been a long journey of each month anticipating a POSTIVE test result, months of tests, fertility treatments and finally looking back realizing how much stronger we both are in faith b/c of our storms and trying times. God is good, even in the bad times.
    We are fortunately paper due 4/21, which is exactly what we think God has prepared us for!

  266. CarrieAnn Fullington says:

    I was telling you everything, and here you asked us about love?
    Ok, love to me is waking up to my husband..hearing my son laugh.
    Love is those few hours we were able to hold our daughter in the hospital on Dec 4th.
    Love is unconditional. Love hurts.Love can be painful as well. Love is my inlaws sitting with us that day at the hospital, making those hours with Abby the most ever.
    Love is my best friend helping me through the loss of our little one.
    Love is my dogs, loving me even though after losing Abby I wasnt ready to be near anyone. They sat by me, rested thier heads on my tummy an whined. That is Love. Love is my son missing his little sister. Love….is Love. This is how I’ve been marked by love.
    Thank you, I hope to win this. I just put it on my daughters blog, then to facebook as well.
    CarrieAnn Fullington
    Mommy to angel Abby Lynn Fullington.

  267. Mollie says:

    After years of infertility, my two sweet babies show me Gods grace and love everyday….

  268. Linda says:

    I miscarried a child, and that angel is with me always. I was marked by love by the blessings of God, in that he gave me 2 more beautiful children. Though the birth of my son was difficult, and we both almost died, the scars I bear because of my children give me strength.

  269. Amber says:

    I teared up when I read about this. I have been looking for a piece just like this for over two years! That is when we lost our baby Jordan. I have been marked by love not only by my baby who I wait to see in heaven, but also by my almost 4 year old Lily. The doctor’s told us we would never get get pregnant. Now I have one happy little girl, and one precious baby with the Lord.

  270. Crystal says:

    I facebooked it!! Love your work!!

  271. Melissa says:

    My niece struggles today with the loss of her baby. She is a young, unwed mother who has faced many tragedies in her high school years including losing her best friend in a car accident in which her younger brother was involved and faced serious injuries, and six months later losing her boyfriend in a car accident. Once over the shock of teen pregnancy, she began to have a reason to live again with the baby on the way. When she went to the doctor expecting to have an ultrasound and find out the sex of the baby, she was crushed with news that there were complications. Long story short, she went to Vanderbilt for a second opinion and they confirmed that there was nothing that could be done to save the baby. She was facing another tragic loss in her Senior year of high school. There is not enough time or space to tell you the grief that she has/does deal with everyday. Baby Cohen was born in December weighing a little over a pound. She did get to hold him for a while, but not long enough for any mother. He was a precious “mini” baby whom did not have to face any of the troubles of this world. He already had his wings. Not a day goes by that we don’t miss him and wander how life would be with him. She struggles with making plans for college and all of the normal things a Senior in high school faces. The necklace is beautiful and I think that might be something for her to always have Cohen wrapped around her neck. God Bless each of you.

  272. ANGIE says:

    I have had a miscarriage and then an emergency hysterectomy. Although I will never be blessed with a child of my own, I love my step-daughter as my child.

  273. I am daily marked by my 3 energetic boys but also by my amazing husband who gives me the joy to parent even on tough days:)

  274. Melissa Lankford says:

    Looking at my sweet little family is my constant reminder of love. God has truly blessed me with my family and I am very greatful for his love for me.

  275. Kelly Groves says:

    I am reminded every day that I have been marked by love, when my 2 year old daughter comes up and gives me kisses and tells me “mommy love you”.

  276. Lyna Swanson says:

    My teenager leaves his mark on my heart daily, sometimes its a precious gentle hug or a punch to my soul – either way – it leaves a mark! 😉

  277. Jennifer says:

    I am not entering to win it for myself, but rather for 2 of my HS classmates that lost their daughter last year.

  278. Crystal says:

    I just placed it on my daughter’s blog, thanks again!!

  279. Michelle Miller says:

    God bless you for another great giveaway! I’d be honored to wear this…

  280. Kezia Mullen says:

    This would be a beautiful necklace for my mother as a lovely reminder of her son and my brother who left this life far too soon. I have forever been marked by her love and her strength. I feel so bless to have her and wish everyone was as lucky as me to have an amazing mother. No mother should have to bury their child, and seeing her pain at the loss of my brother breaks my heart over and over.

  281. Corrie says:

    My tiny baby cousin just went to be with Jesus this past week. Her name was Callison “Callie” Anne; she & I shared a middle name AND the same initials (CAM). I was telling my mom I would like to get my aunt a necklace with Callie’s name on it…this would be PERFECT!

  282. Jeannie says:

    I love how little Audrey’s life just keeps on filling the world with love and beauty. Thank you for creating this.

    I lost my first baby but then we were blessed with a miracle in the form of a beautiful little girl. She has marked every moment since with love.

    While I would adore wearing the necklace myself, I have a friend who has recently experienced two losses back to back and she needs to be reminded that joy will come. I think this is the perfect thing to keep her hope alive.

  283. CarrieAnn Fullington says:
    i posted it on my moms group page, an I also Facebooked it!!!

  284. Jenn P. says:

    I would love to win this for my friend who lost a beautiful son at 41 weeks!

  286. Dena says:

    I love your mama necklace.. I am a mother of twin girls age 6, they will be 7 on April 21. They were 3 months premature and had alot of complications when they were born. I just saw your mama necklace on here and I cried…. it made me think of how precious, and the miracles that God has blessed me with. I wish i could afford to buy it.. but at least I got to see it. Hopefull when I am able to go back to work due to my endemetriosis.. then just maybe i will be able to afford one for myself. Thanks for the inspiration, and dont stop. ~:)

  287. Dena says:

    please give me a chance to when one of these beautiful peices of art..

  288. Tricia says:

    Blessed by the love of my husband!

  289. amanda says:

    My three children here on earth leave their mark on me every day. Last year I was touched even more by the loss of our baby girl at 15 weeks gestation. I miss her every day, even more so a year later I think. I love to see/have anything with her name on it, keeps her here with me in some way.

  290. lizibeth says:

    So happy to see this. I first read Audrey’s story when I was 8 months pregnant with our first baby – not a good time to read something so touching! And now I’m pregnant again and was reading through peoples’ comments ….. so sweet. I had to get a tissue just for the comments!!!
    Thank you.

  291. Susan says:

    What a beautiful design & idea.
    If I were to win I would have it made for my friend Julie who lost her infant son Will nearly 2 years ago.

  292. Sue says:

    This may be one of my favorites of yours. Please enter me for a chance to win.

  293. Kristi says:

    Beautiful, Lisa. Like others here, loss has been a big part of my life. I have 8 little ones playing with the angels including 2 boys who we were “sure” we would get to bring home. I’ve also been looking for something special for a friend who chose to place her son for adoption and this speaks volumes for that situation as well. It’s really perfect!

  294. Celie says:

    Love that lives on even once the child is no longer to hold on to.

  295. CarrieAnn Fullington says:

    I posted your button on Abby’s blog…I dont know what else to do! I just know I would love that.
    Thank you!!!!
    Carrie, mommy to angel Abby Lynn.

  296. I am expecting my 3rd child and just found out that she has Spina Bifida. She has the most severe form and will most likely not walk and also has the risk of mental challenges. This was a huge shock, as it does not run in our family and my other two children are perfectly healthy.

    In the two weeks that we’ve known, this precious little angel has already taught me so much about life, love, and faith. She is touching so many others with her story and is bringing many people — especially my family — to their knees. We are rejoicing with God and celebrating this life, even with the challenges ahead. I’m not sure if I have been “marked,” but I have been changed — for the better.

  297. Genie Blazi says:

    My cousin lost her first born almost 7years ago. Maggie was born with major health issues and they had to do an emergency c-section and my cousin had to be put under. Maggie was born and hurriedly transfered to the Eggleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta while my cousin was across town in another hospital. Maggie lived 19 hours and my cousin never got to hold her baby alive….I was there when they brought Maggie’s sweet body to Jamie for her to hold and love…..she was precious and so perfect. Jamie went through so many struggles following her death and has since gone on to have two healthy girls but I know Maggie is never far from her heart. I would love to give this to her as a reminder of her sweet Maggies brief but BIG life!

  298. Laura says:

    My cousin recently lost a baby and I would love to win this for her. What a beautiful necklace.

  299. Kim says:

    I have a very dear friend who lost her daughter at 20 weeks – this was their last try to carry a pregnancy to full term (they had one that made it – she’s one of my daughter’s best buddies). This would be a special way for her to remember Ivy, and to know that Ivy is remembered by others.

  300. This is another beautiful piece. I am going to answer your question in a round-a-bout way. I purchased your fly free necklace recently and had it stamped on the back with a name and a date.

    This necklace was a gift for a friend who had lost her son after a long illness.

    We gathered a group of friends together this past weekend from all over the US to have a little memorial for our friend in honor of her son.

    Your necklace was the gift-of-honor.

    When I presented it to her…she held it to her heart…tears flowing…

    And I think that moment definitely marked my heart with love.

    Thank you.

  301. Melinda says:

    What an amazing piece, and such a touching story!

  302. Rosmarie Bauer says:

    I have been marked by love by my two little blessings, Brandon & Savanah!
    I have ordered one of your necklaces and checking the mail everyday…should
    be here any time now…can hardly wait!

  303. JD says:

    Whether He gives or takes away, we are all marked by His love… We have children on both sides of the veil, and I had been considering the dewdrop necklace for our Samantha, but struggled between needing something tangible and not being sure something “of this world” would be the right choice either… but perhaps I had only been undecided because God knew this necklace would be offered in time for the 11th anniversary of her passing.

    Thank you for sharing, and for collaborating with Angie on this — what a beautiful and meaningful necklace.

  304. Mary Potts says:

    My 18 year old daughter Erin passed away just three months ago after a three year battle with cancer. She was courageous, beautiful, tenacious and a positive force. I’m now taking steps forward in this new life without her.
    Your jewelry is exquisite, your photography peaceful and splendid. Your blog makes me happy.

  305. Serenity says:

    This is beautiful…Outstanding work! :)

  306. Kim Eckels says:

    I lost my 3 month-old daughter, Kristen, 7 months ago tomorrow. I guess I shouldn’t say I “lost” her because I know exactly where she is! She marked my heart the second I knew about her. And God has marked it as well, with a love that knows no boundaries.

  307. Kathy Johnson says:

    I lost my little girl Katie to Brain Cancer 6 years ago. I still feel a piece of me missing everyday. I love this necklace.

  308. Kristin says:

    What a beautiful necklace! I have friend who lost a little girl. I would love to be able to give this to her as a reminder that other people remember too.

  309. hanna says:

    i’m in love w/ the necklace! so touched by it’s meaning & weight. i’m daily marked by love through my dear husband! so undeserving of it~

  310. Heather says:

    On Monday the baby I lost would have been 1 year old. I love how this necklace is described. It put into words how I feel. I want to know my baby had weight. My baby made an imprint on my heart & I will forever love her.

    I went on to have a healthy little girl and while she is just the light of our lives I worry that family & friends (and even my husband, sometimes) have forgotten the baby we lost. My sweet little girl who lives here with us on earth is a blessing & so special to me but she does not replace the baby we lost.

    I would love to win one of these necklaces so I can wear it as a daily reminder that our lovey girl is a real part of our family, even if she lives in Heaven.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  311. conni W says:

    I love your jewelry it is clean and classic! I would love to honor my sister with one…

  312. Darlene Bond says:

    What a beautiful necklace with a touching story. I have been touched by love with the 5 children I have given birth to, but also by the little baby I lost at 13 weeks. I mourn for that baby and my arms ache to be filled by him…some day.

  313. Ashley says:

    I would love to win this beautiful necklace in honor my sweet little girl Olivia.

  314. G says:

    I didn’t grow up with a very loving or encouraging mom. Instead she hurt me and let others do the same. Now that I am grown up God has blessed me by surrounding me with wonderful, loving and amazing women. One in particular has been a huge source of healing my hurts. She has taken me into her life. She has loved and encouraged me in ways I have never received before. She lost her sweet boy when he was 7 months old and could have chosen to lock herself away with her sorrow, but instead she lives a life that not only helps bring healing to others, but brings even more beauty to her sweet boys little life. She has been marked by love. By Gods love and her little boy’s love…and now she is marking me and so many others with that love. I would love to win this necklace for her.

  315. Emily says:

    Just last week, I ordered your heartstrings necklace with all four of my children’s names, including Hickory, who we lost last month when we were 28 weeks pregnant. This new necklace design is so touching. Being able to have a concrete reminder of those who have passed can be an important part of healing and carrying them with us each day. Thank you so much.

    I am writing my way through grief, and have started a blog to share my story of Hickory and all I have learned from him.

  316. Mary says:

    It is beautiful. I have a daughter born on Christmas Eve, whom loves to tell everyone how special that day is…It is much more than that for me….She shows me everyday how to live and love life to its fullest. We tried for the second and lost him/her around 13 weeks. I thought it was the worst thing that could ever happen…there is not a day that goes by I don’t think about what would have been but I do have my family. We now have a wonderful son….you just have to remember that things happen for a reason. I have a beautiful family that has left me marked by the greatest love possible….

  317. Julie B says:

    i have been marked by love with the saving grace of Jesus. as a first generation Christian, i truly feel “marked.” your artwork if breathtaking. thank you.

  318. Jennifer says:

    I lost a baby girl when I was 19 weeks pregnant. Exactly 1 year later, I was blessed with another baby girl! I have been marked by love by her and her big sister!

  319. Melissa Pond says:

    Marked by love by Noelle and Anna Kate

  320. Rachel says:

    My daughter gives me a glimpse of how much God cares for us. She is a constant reminder of his unfailing love & that he will always care for us & protect us. That he is the ultimate Father.

  321. Laure says:

    I have been marked by love with my 3 wonderful children. I would love to wear this necklace to constanly remind me of how lucky I am.

  322. Michelle says:

    I’ve been marked by love 6 times by 6 babies, all from the grace of God.

  323. JenJ says:

    I have been touched by love with all 4 of my children, 3 living, one born into heaven. It has been 3 1/2 years, yet I still think about him every day. Even though I never got to hold him in my arms, I was blessed to carry him.

  324. Deena says:

    I have 6 little ones who have left their stamp of love on my life and leave their finger prints everywhere everyday! I also have one in heaven that I lost and was able to hold in my hand and see how wonderfully and fearfully made they were. I would love to have a reminder of this wee one around my neck. Thank you for doing this! Soo sweet!

  325. Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday I celebrated as a child with Irish heritage, as a wife with a part-Irish husband, and as a Christian commemorating a man of faith. Now I also celebrate tomorrow as a mother whose second son would have been nine. Talking about him in Remembering Griffin.

  326. Rebecca says:

    Angie has such a touching story, very raw and heartwarming at the same time. I was blessed with a healthy baby girl last year, and the moment I held her in my arms was the moment I got an extra glimpse of the way God sees us. For the first time, I met someone I loved wholly and unconditionally. The love of a parent for a child isn’t something you understand until you experience it.

  327. Robyn says:

    Absolutely beautiful and touching piece of jewelry! I have been touched by love by being pregnant three times, but I only have one sweet little face to show for them. I am truly blessed to have my two-year-old son and knowing that my other two angels are in heaven with my mom, watching over us. Both Angie and Lisa’s blogs are inspiring and encouraging and I am a better person for reading them. Thank you both!

  329. Jenni Carlisle says:

    What a heart you have to create this for Audrey and Angie! My sister in law is struggling with the illness of my nephew & I would love to give her this reminder that because Jesus loves her so…she IS marked with love!

  330. Kelly M says:

    My husband and I have been marked by love. We lost our 2nd daughter, McKenna Joy, to a genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy at the age of 7 1/2 months old (2 years ago on March 19th). We found out in November that we were expecting again (completely unplanned). About 2 weeks ago we got results from our amniocentesis which shows that our 3rd baby girl will also have this disease and will most likely not live to see her first birthday. We are beyond devastated, but God has been so good to us through our journey with McKenna and we know he will give us the grace we need to make it through this journey. We have been blessed with amazing family and friends who have come along side us to walk with us.

  331. jodi says:

    beautiful, beautiful jewelry!

  332. Erin Orr says:

    Absolutely beautiful. I miscarried my first little one nearly three weeks ago. The wounds are still so fresh, but I found Angie’s blog, and her words have helped me so much. I’ve found so much encouragement from her and Audrey, and they’ve certainly helped me to walk closer to the Lord. While I know I’ll never forget my precious child, I’ve been trying to think of something that will be a physical reminder of the little life I never got to hold in my arms. You and Angie have created something so special!

  333. Sara says:

    i have a friend who just lost her 7 year old boy last tuesday. the story is so tragic that it doesn’t even seem real. he was playing at home after school and somehow fell out of the second story window and died instantly. the only thing getting her through this horrific ordeal is her faith in God. i read your blog all the time and couldn’t believe the timing of your most recent post. i know she would love to have this necklace in memory of her sweet Dylan.

  334. Chrysta says:

    I love that you have worked with Angie to create Audrey’s necklace. I’m not sure how I came across Angie’s blog but I found it last fall and was so moved by their story that I read all the way back to the beginning.

    Thankfully I’ve never had to experience the loss of a child but I had a cousin who we lost very tragically. Every time I’m with her little girl I can’t imagine what it would be like to grow up without ever really knowing your mom.

  335. Tara says:

    I’ve had two friends who have lost children and their experiences have shaken me to the very core. In fact, lately I’ve been meeting with a therapist because of the anxiety I feel about losing a child. I’ve learned many things, most importantly for me, love does not end with death. My faith allows me to believe our relationships with loved ones and families exist beyond the grave. This knowledge gives me hope and courage to live day to day.

    I would love this necklace as a reminder of what I have struggled with and learned.

  336. Andrea says:

    I am constantly touched my the love of God in my life. I would love to wear this necklace as a reminder of God’s unfailing love no matter what struggles I may be walking through. Thank you!

  337. SANDY says:

    I have been marked by love in many ways but the people who make you stronger, and are not toxic are a great source

  338. hanna says:

    Just blogged about it!

  339. Sarah Marien says:

    You have such beautiful jewelry, and this is just another amazing necklace! I would be honored to gift this to a close friend, who also lost her daughter just after birth.

  340. Haley says:

    I have a friend whose daughter would be 9 today. I would love to give her this necklace!

  341. Lisa B says:

    The necklase is beautiful. I got a tattoo to remember our Isaiah who we lost at 20 weeks in 2008. I was told about Angie’s blog shortly after and have been reading, praying ever since.

  342. Corinna Marcia says:

    As you said, this necklace really does resonate with a variety of women–I’m marked by the love from my sister, without whom I would not have made it through a very dark tunnel.

  343. Katherine says:

    Truly a special reminder to fill the hole left in the heart. I am blessed with three and two that I will hold in heaven. May God richly bless you with His joy for designing something to help heal.

  344. Corinna Marcia says:

    I facebooked about this, as well

  345. Whitney Bray says:

    Forever changed by my two children…Lily and Mitchell.

  346. Kate says:

    Molly Piper, John Piper’s daughter in law, had to deliver a still-born baby daughter, Felicity, just last year. It was and still is heart wrentching, and I think a necklace like this would be a priceless treasure of her memory for Molly. What a beautiful idea.

  347. BelovedAimee says:

    by grace alone, I have never had to face the loss of a child, but I did lose my little sister in 2006 and my mom in 2008. I love your beautiful jewelry Lisa. <3

  348. Shannon Weeks says:

    My friend lost a little boy 30 minutes after he was born. I would love to give this necklace to her. My heart aches for her. It is almost the one year anniversary of his birth and death.

  349. BelovedAimee says:

    I facebooked this giveaway <3

  350. emilywilberg says:

    I would love one of these beautiful necklaces. My son Gabriel was stillborn 8 years ago this May. I wish peace to all of the moms missing their children.

  351. Chris says:

    My precious cousin lost her 2nd child less than 2 months after he was born. It’s been a privelage to watch her walk through the grief and healing (which continues to today). I have learned so much…

    If I were to win the necklace, it would be a gift to her.

    Thanks so much for the chance!

  352. We lost our first son, Samuel, after 20 weeks of pregnancy a little over three years ago. The Lord really brought us comfort and showed us His love in the midst of such a difficult time. We are now blessed with a 22 month old and one on the way! The Lord is good.

  353. Ashley C. says:

    I have been marked by love in so many ways…the top two thoughare the selfless way my true love cared for me while in ICU with the birth of our first…I was paralyzed on the left side after suffering a PIH stroke…he was my arms, my legs, and the rest of my heart :) The second is that my teenage mother choose to give birth to me and raise me even though my bio-father wanted her to abort me…..God is so good!

  354. Becky says:

    I would love to win one for my friend who’s baby Selah died unexpectedly from a rare disease at just 4 months. Thanks for the chance! Cute necklace.

  355. I love the necklace and audrey’s story. They both are so beautiful!

  356. Irene says:

    What a beautiful memory to have a necklace like this. Our daughter died 2 weeks ago at 21 weeks 4 days gestation. We knew she wasn’t likely to make it, but did our best to carry her here until her heart stopped Monday March 1, 2010. March 2 she was born still. Thank you for working with Angie so that us mothers can remember our children in beautiful ways.

  357. Christina says:

    What a sweet necklace to remind me of the love that I still feel for my baby that I lost at 12 weeks. I would love to have this to wear to remind me of God’s love through it all and the love that I have for my 3 children on earth and one who is heaven waiting on me to hold her! Thank you for the oppourtunity to win this!

  358. Jill Dowling says:

    Over the recent holidays, my brother and his wife lost their little son. They were expecting him to arrive this coming April, but went into pre-term labor the day after Christmas. Sweet Baby Jackson came into this world on December 26th, 2009 weighing just over 1lb. He lived for 5 precious days in the NICU at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, passing away on New Year’s Eve. In his brief time on this Earth, Jackson taught us all what LOVE is. If I win this necklace, it will be a gift for my sister-in-law =)

  359. kasey says:

    By my loving family, and the care and support of the ALI community – a constant source of love and inspiration.

  360. Amanda D. says:

    Oh, it’s just gorgeous! Your work is amazing, Lisa!

  361. Alyson says:

    Thank you for ministering to those who have loved and lost – nothing can ever replace, but it is always good to know that people remember.

  362. DARA GATES says:

    I would love this reminder of Fradel

  363. Kim says:

    Your jewelry is beautiful. The relationship I hold with my 12 nieces and nephews is my reminder of being marked by love. They fill the emptiness felt in my home and heart at different times. Thank you

  364. Laurie J says:

    I would love to win this necklace and wear it proudly to honor one of my twin sons who went to heaven when I was 7 months pregnant. Beautiful work!

  365. Jenn says:

    I love your stuff! I, too, lost my baby girl Lily around the time that Angie lost Audrey. What a wonderful gift you have given her to design something special. We never forget our babies, so it’s nice that you gave her something tangible to help others remember. God Bless You Both!

  366. Brittany says:

    I have never lost a child, but I am on the other side of the fence. I lost my mother when I was only 10. That was 11 years ago, and I still miss her and all the wisdom I she could have given me. Yet, through it all God is still good!

    This is a beautiful necklace and idea. Thank you for your sweet heart (and for sharing it with us)!

  367. Jacqueline says:

    I’ve been marked by the love of my wonderful friends and family. Thank you for this generous giveaway!

  368. In May 2005 I after years of trying I found out I was pregnant. At 7 weeks I miscarried. I now have 2 beautiful daughters that God has given me yet I will never forget my angel. My sister also gave brith to her 1st daughter stillborn in May 2007 when I was 7 months pregnant with my first. Charlotte Jo is gone to heaven but not forgotten on earth.

  369. Charity says:

    I lost my son 12 years ago to SIDS. I would love this necklace close to my heart everyday!

  370. K says:

    I have two wonderful boys. Each different. Each unique. Each one with challenges that will cause me to grow in ways I never anticipated.

  371. Jaime says:

    What a lovely reminder & token of sweet Audrey.

  372. Emily says:

    My sister in law’s best friend lost her baby a couple days after she was born. She has found comfort in Audrey’s story and I would love to win a necklace to give to her to help her remember her sweet Samantha. It’s been one year only a few days ago that Sam passed away. Her family and all who know their family have been marked by love.

  373. Jane Anne says:

    Your jewelry is beautiful. I would be delighted to win. I am marked by love. In this season of Lent, I am focusing on how much love I’ve been given when I don’t deserve it. That’s where my thoughts go based on your question. However, when I think about moms, I think about my mom and her mom (my grandmother). I am blessed with a legacy of love. Thanks for the chance to win!

  374. Two years ago I resembled a wounded animal. My emotions were raw, my mind numb, and my nerves were wound up tighter than a tangled ball of yarn. It hadn’t been quite a year since my husband lost his job.

    I was sleep deprived from working night shift. We lost our home. My grandfather passed away during this time. I felt empty, and dead. And even though my faith told me I was supposed to hold onto the cloak of Jesus… I let go.

    I knew I was there. I had read about it before. Studied about it off and on for years. It was my “dark night of the soul.” My time to feel separated from the love of God.

    I barely existed. I started to feel nauseous in the mornings but passed it off as stress and exhaustion. I pretended the signs weren’t there. The pregnancy test was positive.

    I prayed. I had no choice. I couldn’t do this on my own. I was going to have this baby in faith that God would provide… that she had a purpose, regardless of my own situation.

    And suddenly it was over. Gone just like that. I was in the bathroom at work as the miscarriage started… my heart broke.

    And God showed up. Peace flooded. Calm replaced chaos. Hope returned. Amazingly enough, after so much loss packed into such a short amount of time, I am thankful for all of my circumstances.

    And I believe that the very baby that left my womb was sent to save me.

  375. Krista says:

    My life was touched by love the day my twins Brooke and Alexcyn were born. They were only with us a short while, but they touched my heart forever.

  376. emilywilberg says:

    Also facebooked it. Good luck to me, lol

  377. Ashley Allen says:

    I love this necklace so much I too lost a son. I love the part about how it has weight! Thanks for you hard work at making beautiful jewelry! Ashley Allen

  378. Sara says:

    Just commenting to say this is a beautiful giveaway and I know the one who receives it will be blessed. I have six beautiful little grandchildren here to enjoy and four waiting for me in heaven.

  379. Brenda B says:

    I sent this to my friends husband. They lost a baby girl more than 25 yrs ago and we still love her and think of her all the time. He ordered a necklace to give to her. I told him he would remember his baby girl when he saw her momma wearing the necklace. Thank you so muh for this.

  380. Faith says:

    This necklace means so much to me. I’ve looked at your necklaces before, but couldn’t quite find one that fit with losing my daughter 18 months ago, born prematurely at 24 weeks and living one precious week. Thanks for creating it for mothers like me.

  381. Melissa says:

    After 7 years of infertility, we were blessed with two beautiful children from South Korea. They are the light of my life and I love them more than anything.

    The necklace is just beautiful. I’m a big follower of Angie’s blog, and the necklace is a beautiful tribute to Audrey.

  382. Pam says:

    Blessed by my two sweet children whom I never take for granted. I have lost three others, very early in their pregnancies, but I am blessed to have two to hold and love everyday!

  383. Sarah says:

    I have been marked by love….just after Christmas 2009 I miscarried our fourth child. I will forever be marked by love…

  384. Tiffany says:

    I’ve been marked by love for a baby we don’t know yet … I would wear this necklace for the baby we hope to adopt some day.

  385. Danielle says:

    My friend lost her 18 month old son and I would love to win this for her in remembrance of Brady. It is a beautiful necklace and idea!

  386. Danielle says:

    I am posting your giveaway on facebook.

  387. Maribeth Kooiman says:

    I would love to give this necklace to my sister-in-law who lost a son to crib death at 6 weeks old.

  388. Danielle says:

    I am going to blog about it as well. :)

  389. Kristi says:

    I had a miscarriage in October, 2006. Although I never got to meet that baby in the flesh, I miss him/her so much. Both you and Angie have such sweet souls. Thank you so much for the chance to win this gift!

  390. Caitlin says:

    I would love to give this to my friend who lost her baby girl soon after birth. Though its been a few years and two children later, she is very much a part of that family.

  391. Beth says:

    I would love to win this necklace for a friend of mine who lost a baby not too long ago. I think it is beautiful.

  392. Kaira says:

    I’ve been marked by love by the 4 boys I am raising today.

  393. Ashley says:

    My daughter was initially diagnosed with trisomy 18. They told us she probably wouldnt make it through the pregnancy and if she did she probably wouldnt make it through her first year of life. after an emotional few days and an amniocentisis (I am 26), turns out she was just being stubborn. that moment really changed my outlook on my whole pregnancy. i treasured every moment of being pregnant after that. she was born happy and healthy. we are about to celebrate her second birthday. I am still treasuring every moment knowing that it was possible that I could have never had these memories.

  394. paige says:

    What a beautiful necklace! I am marked by love by the sweet baby that I lost during my first pregnancy. I still think about that sweet baby, and it makes me hug my two little guys that much more each day.

  395. Colleen says:

    My son Andrew’s angel date is coming so quickly on March 26th. In some ways I can’t believe it has been three years since he died. And other times it has been an eternity without him. Please feel free to read my story @ Your neclace is beautful. I would love to have something so special to wear in his honor.

  396. Shawn says:

    My sister-in-law has blessed my life in ways that I can’t even begin to explain! I would love to win this for her!

  397. Allison says:

    This is beautiful. I just recently lost my baby at 15 weeks pregnant. This would be perfect.

  398. Courtney says:

    This is beautiful!!! I would love to wear this honoring my three children, one that is to be born in the next couple of weeks:)

  399. Debrah says:

    I would give this to my sister, whom lost her sweet little George, after ten years. She is different now, quiet and withdrawn… and he’s been gone almost six months. Thank you for a beautiful necklace memorial to that sweet little Audrey Caroline.

  400. Alyssa says:

    When I think about love I think about my mom. She recently found a lump in her breast and we’re still waiting for results. I have faith things will work out for good, but it’s scary to think about the possibility of cancer.

  401. conny says:

    also marked by love … 10-17-2002. I will never forget.

  402. Diana says:

    I have been marked by love in so many ways… I feel so truly blessed.

    I have been a fan of Angie’s blog for over 2 years. She is truly a remarkable lady. Thanks for making something so special for her to remember her sweet Audrey by. Thanks also for the giveaway!!

  403. Katie says:

    I would love this necklace to honor my son, Cameron. I lost him at 18 weeks of pregnancy on February 15, 2005. He did have weight in this world and I would love to wear a constant reminder of that.

  404. marijke says:

    so sweet!

  405. Stephanie says:

    It’s just beautiful! We are in the process of adopting a daughter from Ethiopia. I think it would be a special thing to give to our new daughter from her forever mommy and daddy.

  406. Megan Williams says:

    I have been touched by the love of wonderful family, friends, and church members when going through infertility struggles and eventual miscarriage. I am now blessed with two wonderful, energetic boys to touch with my love.

  407. Tricia says:

    We lost our second child in the first trimester. The necklace is a beautiful idea.

  408. I am marked by love each day I look into the eyes of my three year old son, Nehemiah. I will have to look into purchasing one of these necklaces for my sister, who has lost two children. The first child she lost due to an early delivery, and then baby Masen passed away a little over a year ago. He had cerebral palsy and was very sick, but we treasure the few months we got to spend with him. I cannot image the pain of losing a child.

  409. Deana says:

    My husband and I had two miscarriages before God gave us our two healthy children. I have a friend, though, who is struggling with multiple miscarriages and doesn’t know if she’ll ever have a child of her own. I’d love to give this to her as a gift.

  410. catherine says:

    I am entering to win this necklace for my friend. She lost her 2 year old son a month ago in a horrible accident. I think this would be a wonderful reminder of his beautiful life.

  411. Laura says:

    I am a mom to two sweet kiddos, but at the same time I am mourning the loss of a marriage. I have turned a corner, though, and am now looking straight ahead at the future that awaits me and my children.

  412. Danielle M says:

    I am always looking for different ways to remember my girls! What a beautiful way to keep them close to my heart…

  413. Melody B. says:

    Goodness where to begin with how love has touched my life. My husband is one of the most loving and strong men I’ve ever known. We’ve lost 10 babies at various stages of gestation. Our miscarriages began just a few months into our marriage, coincidentally the week of Mother’s Day. He’s seen me struggle now for almost 11 years. He’s been there to love me, hold me and cry with me as we’ve mourned the loss of our dear precious ones. Even though I know he doesn’t understand the feeling a mother of loss has, he does his best to not pressure me and has allowed me to grieve and cope the way I felt appropriate at the time. It’s been hard for me to hold onto the hope and faith that God will bless us with a child. My husband said this a few nights ago, “Let me hold on for you.” I can’t think of a more sincere form of love, next to God himself. My husband is my greatest blessing in life.

  414. Emalee says:

    My husband and I have been married just over 10 years. WE have been trying to conceive for 8 and a half years. I was marked by love a year and a half ago, when our first born Kenner was born. He was born at 22 weeks 4 days. He live for a short 2 hours and 10 min. His life has forever changed me. His death still haunts me. One day I will be a mom to a living baby, as for today I am a mom to an angel!!!

  415. Jessica says:

    Gorgeous! I am marked by love is So many ways! When I was 21, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! Due to circumstances in my life then, I placed the baby for adoption to a very loving family. I will forever be blessed by the miracle of what happened in my life with that baby.
    Since then, I have married and gone on to have 2 more children and even adopted a child of our own. Funny, how my life came “full circle”. Love continually surrounds and supports me every single day!

  416. Carolyn says:

    I lost my son to melanoma cancer……..would love to wear this necklace as a reminder of his life.

  417. Leslie says:

    I was marked by love in April of 2008. It was my second pregnancy, and it ended up being ectopic. I have gone on to have another beautiful daughter who just turned 1 last week, in addition to my 6 year old daughter.

    This is such a beautiful necklace.

  418. Annette Standrod says:

    How beautiful. It is always wonderful to find a way to remember those we love!

  419. Emily says:

    love EVERYTHING!!!

  420. Wendy says:

    I bought one of these necklaces this morning for someone who lost a baby. I would love to win one for myself so that I can put my 2 girls names on it….for they always bring me lots of love and kisses!

  421. Megan Meyer says:

    I have two sisters who both have lost babies recently (one of them has lost 3) and I’d give this to one, and have to buy another for the other. Lisa, you are brilliant.

  422. Kaycee says:

    Marked by love? How can you not be. My family, my husband, my daughter. I am very very blessed by the people in my life.

    This necklace is gorgeous, I follow Angie’s blog and this is such a wonderful tribute to Audrey.

  423. Joy Bishton says:

    So many ways…God is so good, He has poured out blessings, and carried us through the rough waters too.
    I have been blessed with three wonderful sons from my first marriage.
    He carried me through the discovery that my husband was homosexual and the resulting divorce.
    I have been blessed with my second husband, a true man of God, caring husband and devoted step daddy.
    He has carried us through two second trimester losses last year, Michael in January, and Providence in August.
    We have been blessed to become pregnant again. I am 21 weeks, and this little fellow seems to be very healthy. We pray for and praise God daily for this little one.

  424. Shana says:

    This is beautiful and the meaning is makes it even more beautiful … as beautiful as Angie and her family!

    If I won this, I would give it to a very special person – my little sister! She had a very close encounter with death with the birth of her first and only child a year ago. This would be the perfect reminder to count your blessings, to never take anything for granted and to be thankful for God’s miracles, our little Ruby!

    Thanks Angie & Lisa

  425. Leslie says:

    I tweeted! @lesliegbarton

  426. Ashley Keylor says:

    My sweet friend Jenifer lost their 4 month old baby boy this year and I would love to give this to her. They are completely glorifying God through sweet Tyler’s life and are so deserving. This is such a precious thing to make (although I hate that there is even a need).

    Thank you- Ashley Keylor

  427. Sheyenne W says:

    I lost my daughter at birth 4 weeks ago. Reading about Audrey gave me the strength to carry my daughter, Whitney. I love this necklace, especially the weight. No matter how short our little girls’ lives were, they DO matter. They DO make a difference. LOVE this necklace.

  428. Laura Leighninger says:

    My life has been marked by loving my two boys, Ian and Isaac, and by their loving me! My life, like so many other moms, has also been touched by miscarriage. And I’ll be forever grateful for the footprints left on my heart by our “Rose” and others like Angie’s Audrey. Thanks for creating this special momento just for them!

  429. Kelly Clark says:

    I saw another necklace similar to this one, but instead of the “love” on the front, it said “glory baby.” I don’t know if you would think that was cool, but I do!

  430. Jema Ball says:

    My son Solomon died at birth last February. I am now expecting a brother or sister for him in July. This whole experience has been one of learning about love and having to loose things that are precious. We were given the option to terminate the pregnancy at 24 weeks, but decided to carry on, because in order to love our son, we had to be prepared to loose him too, but we knew that only God could be in control of the timing of that. We had 14 more beautiful and heartbreaking weeks with him until he was born at 38 weeks.

    Your jewelery is stunning, and if I was to win, I’d quickly become your biggest fan on the other side of the pond!

    God bless,

    Jema (UK)

  431. Melissa says:

    I would love to win this necklace for my sister-in-law in honor of my angel nephew Benjamin. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  432. Heather says:

    My mother-in-law is my reminder of how I have been marked by love. She has been such a blessing since my husband and I met. I feel God’s love every time I remember the gift He has given me in my husbands family.

  433. Sarah M says:

    i would love to win this to give to a sweet friend who lost her baby girl 3 yrs. ago. thanks so much!

  434. karla says:

    Just so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your God given gifts with all of us.

  435. Traci says:

    I was touched by love, his name was Zachary, and he was my everything. My angel died when he was 5 in my arms. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him. I cannot believe it’s been 9 years. For such a little boy he did such a big job on everyone he knew. I’m so proud! He taught me to love with everything I have and not to take anything for granted!

  436. Shannon says:

    I have lost four children and a necklace like this one is a wonderful way to honor their lives.

  437. Christy says:

    I lost my son 6 years ago (almost to the day). His birthday is March 20th and in the last 6 years I have learned what it means to really love others and how to allow God’s love to penetrate through me. I will never be the same and I never even got to hear him cry. He was still born and so we never got to properly meet him, yet we are so overwhelmed with the love any parent feels for their child. I will always wonder what his life would look like, but am so grateful for the peace of knowing he is in heaven. I would love to have the necklace as a way to remind me daily of what God has done for me and how far he has brought me in the last 6 years.

  438. Jennifer says:

    My cousin just recently found out that her baby boy due this summer will either be still born or will only live only for a short time after birth. I know that if I won this necklace it would be a special reminder to her each day of the love she has now and will continue to have for her son.

  439. Tracei says:

    a joy and blessing to share your stories with all. Thank you. truly, Thank you

  440. Shannon says:

    I retweeted the giveaway! @shannielu

  441. Angie says:

    I have 4 precious ones in Heaven – treasures waiting for me. They all are a part of my heart! Our last little one, a boy, went to be with the Lord mid-pregnancy, in Nov. – baby Graham. What a blessing your jewelry is to so many!

  442. Shelley says:

    I have never experienced the type of loss Angie and Todd suffered. I cannot imagine the pain they have gone through. I did have two miscarriages, and so often wonder how different my life would be with those children in it. I miss them, but know that I have angels watching over me.

  443. Alysa says:

    What a beautiful way to remember our sweet angels. Mine flew to heaven almost five years ago. Thank you for the giveaway.

  444. Elizabeth says:

    I would love to win this necklace to give to a friend who’s son is due in June… he isn’t expected to live beyond birth, but like Audrey’s family his family will be forever marked by love for him.

  445. Heather says:

    Beautiful. I have not lost a child, but have a dear mommy friend that I have met online who recently lost her baby girl at 20 weeks. It breaks my heart for her. This necklace would be a great rememberance of her sweet Sadie.

  446. Maggie says:

    Would love to have this necklace as a reminder of my son William who was stillborn. Beautiful!

  447. chantry says:

    what a beautiful piece to remind us of our precious babies who are now being held in the arms of Jesus. my sweet baby joined Him at just 9 weeks – and although i never got to hold him/her i am blessed to have been “loaned” that life for a short time. we are approaching the “birth day” for our little one, May 15, which also happens to be my birthday. i continue to struggle on a daily/hourly basis but will choose not to “waste the pain” – hoping to share and be of an encouragement to others.

    “For the mountains may fall and the hills turn to dust, but even then my faithful love for you will remain.” Is. 54:10

  448. jennifer says:

    I would LOVE to win this for my friend Jana. She lost her little girl ‘Whitney” in Decemeber. Whitney wasnt even 3 weeks old when she passed away. Jana is really struggling right now through it all. I would love to have you simply mail her one 😉 thanks, jen

  449. Rebekah says:

    I would like to give this to my sweet friend who lost her baby boy a few weeks after his birth a couple years ago. She is now pregnant with her second and very anxious that things will be smooth, this time around. This would be a beautiful reminder of her first son….

  450. Jeniffer Smith says:

    Wow. Just…wow. May 1, 2009, I lost my first baby at around 8 weeks. Though I never met my baby, I knew she was someone special. Someone God created for a purpose. It broke my heart, but I was reminded that God had a plan. I grieved…and I moved on. Then, on September 21, I found out I was pregnant again! I was so thankful that God had given my husband and I a second chance…until I miscarried again six days later. To say that I was bitter is an understatement, and I am just now able to trust in God and His love for me again. Sweet Abiah and Ronan taught me something that nothing else in this life has–no matter what God does to prune me, no matter how different His plans are from mine, He loves me. He has marked all of us with His love.

  451. Beth says:

    Lisa, this is a beautiful necklace. I love the idea of it being heavier than your other necklaces. We lost a little girl almost two years ago at 17 weeks, and sometimes I feel as though I’m the only one who remembers her. Her short life had meaning and weight–this would be a special way to remember her every day.

  452. Neile says:

    My dear friends Sarah and Peter lost their precious daughter, Annie, at the age of 6 months last September. They are holding on to the Lord and trusting in Him. I would love to win this for Sarah, in memory of her sweet Annie.

  453. Kelaughter says:

    I am marked by love when I look in my little boy’s sweet faces or hear them say they love me. They are such a blessing and in them I see God’s love. I have not lost a child, but I know several people that have had miscarriages and I have read the blogs of several that have lost children. I cannot imagine what they go through just to make it through a day. I know that it is only by God’s grace. Being able to see how they have gotten through is a true mark of God’s of love as well.

  454. denise says:

    overwhelmed by all your comments from mommies, who like me have a child that was born into heaven. and though i mourn with them their loss, i am comforted by their comments, and rejoice that they are held by our good Father, fully living in “God’s love better than life.”

    my caleb would have been 9 today.

    losing a child, then telling the world you have 3, when you are mommy of 4 is lonely.

    i do wear a ring with caleb’s name on it. i don’t need to win this beautiful, thoughtful necklace.

    but i do want to thank you lisa, for tenderness and a offering a place to share our stories.

  455. Caryn Smith says:

    I have the perfect friend to give this to. She is expecting triplets but will only be bringing home two of her precious babies. What a perfect reminder of the weight that Trip will always have in the world!

  456. Kathryn says:

    First of all, your work is beautiful!! While I’ve never lost a child, when my son was born he almost didn’t make it. I think all mothers are marked by love. I love this piece adn the tought and meaning behind it. Thanks for such a beautiful giveaway!

  457. Lisa says:

    Just knowing the Father has marked me by His love.

  458. Stef says:

    I’m entering to win it for my sweet Aunt Lisa. Almost 4 years ago her ONLY 19yr old daughter Emily was driving back to college and drove into oncoming traffic and was killed instantly. She was wearing her seat belt and she was a safe driver!! They found her cell phone in her hand – DO NOT USE YOUR CELL PHONE WHEN YOU DRIVE!


  459. Abbey says:

    Marked by love in March 2005 and again the next March…and my sister experienced her loss in December …

  460. Marie says:

    marked by love since becoming a daughter to the King and then a wife and a mom. I’m very blessed.

  461. Jennifer says:

    My Eli went home to be with Jesus three weeks ago. He was born Feb. 21 at 4:47 pm and was welcomed into Jesus’ arms two short hours later. As he left my arms for the arms of Jesus, he forever marked my heart and soul!

  462. Angie says:

    Oh, how beautiful. I just love this and how much meaning there is behind it. We lost our baby when I was 22 weeks along, just 2 1/2 years ago – it was devastating. We had been looking forward to meeting him – our first boy after two girls – but the Lord had other plans. Oh, how we were marked by love the day I delivered him. We held him for 3 hours and felt surrounded by God’s blessings, even though they didn’t present themselves as we had dreamed.

    This necklace is perfect. On the back, I’d want it to say “Joshua Dale” – we named him that so that his name alone could bring glory to God and forever bless others. Joshua means “The Lord is my Salvation” and Dale means “valley” – so even in the darkest valley, we knew the Lord was near. I’d love the chance to share that story through a necklace!

  463. Steph says:

    I have been marked by the love of my Holy Father, who shows me that even though I keep messing up here in my earthly body, he has way bigger plans for me than I can ever hope to imagine. Just because I’m me.

  464. Candi says:

    What a beautiful memorial to the way Jesus makes all things new, how He brings life from death and meaning from profound sorrow. He is a good Savior.

  465. I can think of lots of mommies that deserve this necklace. I know 31 of them personally. I am a photographer for Now I Lay me down to sleep. My first Angel was Aug 8, 2009.

    I feel that I am being so selfish wanting it for me….lol :) but I would love this to be a token to the 31 Angels I have held, love and miss.

    What a amazing thing your doing..

    Thank you!!!

  466. Colleen says:

    I love this necklace I know I have been marked by love!

  467. Genny says:

    My sweet friends Jeff and Marsha have lost 3 beautiful babies, actually birthing 2 of them. The last sweet baby boy was born on Audrey Carolines birthday. I know they would be so touched by this beautiful necklace. Thank you.

  468. Colleen says:

    I am tweeting about this giveaway on @colleensamantha

  469. Lynda says:

    We lost our sweet daughter … Gracelyn Jean Victoria … at 14 weeks. She was called home before entering this world … our hearts were willing to surrender her to the Lord if that is what would bring Him glory, but the loss is still deep and painful. I often symbolize her absence with a crown … a reminder to me that she has already won the race set before her … she has her crown. This neclace is precious … what a perfect way for us to keep her close to our hearts and continually thank the Lord that we were able to “know” her at all.

  470. Alana says:

    marked by love as a mother of three beautiful children. so, so blessed.

  471. Karen Pope says:

    Aren’t we all “Marked by Love”? Our heavenly Father has so marked us! :)

    I was particularly drawn to Angie’s website as a friend (Laura & Jay) whom Angie and Todd have met at Jay’s church in North Augusta, SC right after Laura’s father was shot and killed and Angie and Todd shared many tears with my dear friends. I read an article in a Focus on the Family magazine about Audrey Caroline and how Angie and Todd have handled and coped with things. Then I shared the article with Laura b/c Laura & Jay recently (in Dec.) lost their 40 week old daughter when Laura’s placenta ruptured just 5 days before she was to be induced. It was devastating to all who know them, and God has been their only constant source of strength. He has carried them through this and now, even through her sister Beth’s same struggle with a clotting placenta at 10 weeks pregnant. When I read about the giveaway today on Angie’s blog, I first thought, “Wow!! I’d love to give one to Laura in memory of their little Campbell Nicole who will continually live on in their hearts and minds!”

    Thanks to Angie and Lisa for providing this opportunity and for the awareness and support it raises for these little lives gone too soon, but still all in the hand of God. Our protector!

  472. Amanda says:

    I lost my son, Elliott, when I was 33 weeks pregnant on October 30, 2009. I was blessed to have 33 weeks with him and this necklace would mean a lot to me.

  473. Kim says:

    I am now marked by love. Not by a husband or boyfriend or a worldy father. I am now marked with love by my heavenly father and a son who have taught me what love is suppose to be.

  474. I lost my Dad two years ago April 19. He showed me what unconditional love looked like. He definitely left his mark of love on me and all of my siblings…I miss him deeply.

  475. Lily says:

    I have an experience very similar to Angie’s, except my daughter had a chromosome disorder with her 3rd chromosome. I carried her for 36 weeks before she passed straight into heaven. I have three sons with me on earth, who I love and adore so much. I can’t wait to hold my daughter again one day…

    Audrey’s story has helped me so much through the past few months. That necklace is absolutely perfect. =)

  476. Tracey says:

    Beautiful…marked by Love by my sweet Savior who has gotten me through the past 18 months since my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer!

  477. Nicole says:

    This would be such a blessing. Saying a prayer for each and every other Momma who has a “heavy heart.” God bless.

  478. Colleen says:

    Also will be facebook’d thanks for this great giveaway Lisa!

  479. MommaKiss says:

    Lisa, your work and generosity amaze me!

    Marked by love? Every time my husband grabs my hand (without me asking :p ) and undeniably my children.

    I’ve lost loved ones. A baby. A brother. A father. Loss and grief are never ever easy. But for me, I live and love in their memories.

  480. Candi says:

    I posted the giveaway as my Facebook status today:!/candi.dickerson?ref=nf

  481. Suzanne Petty says:

    I am commenting on the new “marked by love” necklace. What a beautiful gesture – and what a lovely reminder to those who’ve lost a child. I cannot imagine. I have a friend who I haven’t spoken to in many years. We became friends in third grade. She lost a baby girl about 12 years ago. She was never the same after losing that baby girl. She took a picture of the baby – and she keeps that picture in a box. She has three healthy beautiful children, but will always remember the little girl she lost. I would love for her to have this necklace as a special reminder of the little girl she’ll always love and hold near to her heart! Thank you for sharing such an inspirational story with us!


  482. Jackie says:

    My husband and daughter remind me everyday of how wonderful earthly love can be. I recently had a miscarriage. It was very early, but I often think about how much joy that child would have brought us as well. I know we’ll experience that joy again, hopefully soon! Beautiful necklace…I JUST ordered one of your necklaces last night for a dear friend fighting a cancer that (without a miracle) will most likely take her life. I can’t wait to give it to her!

  483. Emily Stout says:

    Our journey to parenthood was long. We endured His plans all along praying that He would bless us with a child. Three years later, via in-vitro we were blessed with a beautiful baby boy. We will be celebrating his first birthday next month. He will forever remind me of God’s unconditional, enduring love and plans.

  484. Kristen says:

    I have been marked by the love of 2 little boys and 2 little girls who are teaching me things I never dreamed I needed to know. These 2 sweet boys are my stepsons. While I was hesitant to let them into my life, they have never been hesitant about their love for me. I will be forever indebted to them for all that they have taught me. My little girls are teaching me things as well…and the love that I have for all of them is indescribable. I recently bought the”fly free ” necklace. Everyone asks me what it is and what it means. I try to live as fully as possible every day!

  485. Tiffany says:

    I would LOVE to win one of these precious necklaces! It is just absolutely BEAUTIFUL and the meaning is incredible!!

  486. Lynda says:

    I will forever be marked by the love of my own family! Your creations are stunning!

  487. aimymichelle says:

    i am marked by Gods love also with what hes recently shown me in my best friend.

  488. Shannon says:

    I met Barb only twice, but the mark she left on me is indelible. The woman was a phenom. She was involved in any organization she would get involved with. She was a very central figure in AA, she shared her whole heart and soul with everyone. She opened her hands and her arms to anyone who needed them. She was completely selfless and giving and caring.

    Unfortunately, her life was taken just two short weeks ago and she is missed by an entire community as well as her friends and family.

  489. Denette says:

    As a mother thats lost two little angels myself, what a precious reminder.

  490. Candi says:

    Just tweeted the giveaway: @candijd

  491. Lourdes says:

    It almost feels impossible to choose only one way in which I am marked by love, because God is so very generous to me, even if I sometimes seem to forget some of the many blessings that are always around me. Having a loving husband and 3 children… my family is a great gift from God and i am marked by love every day thanks to them, Joyful days, easy days, difficult days, EVERY DAY!
    Thanks for the lovely giveaway. Reading only a few comments, it is obvious how many are touched by “life” and marked by love.

  492. sherry says:

    This is absolutely precious. Love love love your jewelry.

  493. MommaKiss says:

    And? I’m wearing my ‘initials’ necklace today! The one my husband gave me from your site last year (for Mother’s Day). I had to link him and tell him how long it may take to ship :p I get so many compliments on it.

  494. Alyson Minx says:

    Your jewelry is so beautiful, it reminds me of how much I love my baby girl, I never knew what true love was until I held her in my arms.

  495. Joy B says:

    This is a beautiful necklace and would make such a beautiful tribute to my daughter. I love holds-warmth feature.

  496. Sara says:

    I have 4 beautiful babies that have definitely made me “marked by love” However I think that if I win this necklace I will give this to a friend that had lost 2 babies to miscarraige one at 26 weeks. She is currently 15 weeks pregnant again and we are praying for a miracle baby.

  497. Joy B says:

    I tweeted this giveaway under @reesesPBC.

    My salvation, my wonderful family, my beautiful children….so many ways I have been Marked by Love. I love your work, and what a wonderful honoring of Audrey…her precious life has touched so many.

  501. Shelley says:

    I have been marked by love by my daughter Elliana, who lived 27 precious days.

  502. Shelley says:

    Tweeted about it!

  503. Katy says:

    I would LOVE to win one! My sweet girl–Cicely Grace was stillborn March 13, 2003–we just celebrated her 7th birthday–7th year that we have mourned her life and yet praised God for the huge impact her little life made on us and this world!

  504. Anne says:

    I have always admired your necklaces. I am marked by love everytime I feel and experience God’s grace. He presents Himself in so many ways: when I look at my husband, children, those I teach and learn from. . .

  505. My husband Clif and I had troubles getting pregnant for a year or more. I found a doctor, and went on fertility meds. After the third round, I became pregnant with out little girl…Lillian Joy Smith. Pregnancy went fine till towards the end when I had unexplained high blood pressure. Still, things were good. Went on bedrest for several months…had a scheduled induction, went to the hospital to deliver, when we showed up…we were told that there was no heartbeat. We had just been to the doctor the day before. So at 40 weeks 5 days,on November 13,2009, I delivered our baby girl, Lilly Bean, born still. 5 pounds 9 1/2. Beautiful…we still don’t know to this day what happened in those short hours between doctors visit and arriving at the hospital. But we know that God has a plan. We are now, once again trying to conceive. I am currently back on fertility meds. =)

  506. Joy B says:

    I blogged about this necklace here:

    Thank you for giving away two of these! They are beautiful.

  507. Melissa Souder says:

    Simply beautiful. God bless you.

  508. Whitney says:

    My dear, sweet Grandpa passed away 3 1/2 years ago. There isn’t much time that goes by when I don’t think about his laugh, his jokes, his zeal for life. I can’t wait to give him a hug up in heaven someday!

  509. Jenny says:

    I love this necklace Lisa. I know Audrey’s story. This post brought tears to my eyes. I am marked by a loving husband and four beautiful children… three here and one in Heaven. I miscarried my second pregnancy almost 4 years ago. My daughter had wanted a baby sister so badly, I became pregnant and she was sure it was a girl. Not long after I lost that baby and it broke all of our hearts. Abby and I named the baby, and though we never did find out the sex of the baby, we named her Clara. I went on to have two sons after that who are such a joy to me, but I will never stop wondering about what Clara would have been like. I long for the day when I meet her in Heaven.

  510. Emily C. says:

    I am in tears over the possibility of having a tangible way to remember my angels.

    A good friend of mine, my living daughter’s godfather, often reminds me that he is praying for us, and that he has enlisted prayer warriors on our behalf as well. That is a huge way that I feel loved!

    my good friends had twin baby girls about a month ago. they were 12 weeks early, and one of them was twice as small as the other. they were both doing pretty good for about 2 weeks, when the little one got an infection and passed away instantly. this little family has only been a family for not even a year. these twins were honeymoon babies. anyway, it’s been such a crazy ride for them, and i would love to get my friend Jess, a necklace with her little girl’s name on it. her name is paetyn. but they called her Sweet P. the other baby is still going to be in the hospital for a while! but is doing good!

    the reason i want to get her one is because my little sister passed away when she was 2 months old of SIDS. me and my twin sister were 2 at the time..and my little sister that passed away also had a twin brother. it was very hard on my mom. we were so little and didn’t understand, but my mom got a necklace 20 years ago with “bailey jane” engraved on it. she still wears it to this day and i always thought it was so neat. i would love to get one for my friend so she can always carry her little girl with her!

    love your are so talented..

  513. Courtney says:

    I lost two babies last year, both at 8 weeks – one to miscarriage, one to an ectopic pregnancy – and never got to hold them or even see them on an ultrasound. I want them to have weight, too. I miss them desperately.

  514. Lesley says:

    I love it!

  515. Erin Harper says:

    We were marked by love on Feb. 26th, 2001, when our beautiful son Quinn Thomas was born still. What a beautiful way to hold him close to my heart. LOVE IT!!

  516. MelindaV says:

    I was marked by love when, at 21 weeks along in my pregnancy, I was blessed to find out I was having twins.

  517. Tiffany C. says:

    Wow! Love has led our family to adopt a baby. I would really love one of these necklaces to give to the birth mother!

  518. shelly says:

    Love the new necklace! Wow, what a tribute to Audrey!

  519. Karen says:

    This is so beautiful! My wonderful son is in heaven–we have all been marked by love through his 18 years of life here. Bless you

  520. Tiffany Day says:

    Hi Lisa! What a wonderful necklace! I have read Angie’s story – truly heartbreaking and touching. I appreciate so much what she shares.

    I am marked by love by Ricky, Travis & Sydney! I am humbled everyday by their unconditional love – my heart is forever marked by them! As it is also marked by my truly amazing and wonderful extended family who is ALWAYS there for me and has helped create me into the person I am. My heart is also marked by their unconditional love!

    Love this and what it stands for! Please consider giving the necklace to someone else IF by chance you draw my number – I would of course LOVE to have it but I honestly want someone else to receive such a lovely reminder of their mark of love!

    Have a great day!

  521. Lisa Copenhaver says:

    I lost a daughter when she was 13 days old due to complications related to prematurity. Her twin is 4 years old now. When you lose a child, it changes you. Without the love and grace of Christ, I don’t know how we would have made it through. This is a beautiful piece. If I were to win, I would wear it with honor to remember my sweet girl in heaven and to honor my amazing daughter who survived.

  522. Renee Wall says:

    Since our marriage 3 years ago, my husband and I have lost 3 in early pregnancy. We’re due to have our first in early July! Our journey to begin our family has made my marriage, heart and ability to persevere stronger than I ever imagined! We’re grateful for each gift each loss has given to us and will not forget our journey or the little ones whose hands we’ve longed to touch.

  523. Lauren says:

    My first two pregnancies ended in miscarriage. My babes in heaven are named Moriah and Samuel. Between them we adopted our beautiful daughter, Izzy. My third pregnancy was tumultuous but my babe survived eventhough she was born with a VERY rare chromosomal disorder called Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome. Norrah has many special needs and at 20 months is non-verbal, immobile and requires many therapies. Still she is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I love and cherish every minute with her. (except maybe sleepless nights with her… my heart cherishes them but my brain and body would say otherwise!)

  524. Lauren says:

    facebooked it.

    I just found out that I am going to be the proud grandma of TWINS!!

  526. Gina says:

    Marked by love is a wonderful concept. I can’t imagine a better way to name it. Having lost a child myself, this is something I think will be of great benefit to many. Thank you for your work!

  527. Shay says:

    My beautiful children. I never knew real unconditional love until them.

  528. We have three angels in heaven and three beautiful, healthy children here with us. My husband has held my hand and lived it all with me. What greater expression of love is there?

  529. I could “tweet”, facebook, or blog… but I have found after reading these comments that are so many people hurting like my husband and I hurting. =) You have created a BEAUTIFUL necklace in rememberance of a precious story. Just reading the story, and these comments is enough for me. God bless you.

  530. Kim says:

    For my Dear Sweet Friend who lost her little girl before it was time.

  531. Michelle says:

    I love the necklace, the design, the concept. My nephew died 10 short days before his first birthday due to a heart defect. I miss him terribly, but am reminded, daily, of how good God is. The doctors thought he wouldn’t make it through the first surgery, two surgeries later he smiled in spite of pain, loved to cuddle, and drew thousands to their knees in prayer. Just under a year of life and that little boy had more of a profound impact on the kingdom of God than anyone I’ve ever know. And I’m better for knowing him and loving him.

  532. I sit here with tears in my eyes, tears for my own loss and tears for others’ losses. Even though time makes the pain lessen, there’s always the scar of loss. (And right now I am praying for all who enter here, that God will comfort them and work mightily in their lives.) Thank you for reaching out to touch us with the give-aways. Of course I want to be entered, please!

    I lost our first pregnancy at 10 weeks, after four years of infertility. I got to see the scrap of the little life my husband and I had created. What a blessing! My baby was about the length of a quarter. I could see some of its face and could even count its fingers and toes (20 in all!). Baby footprints have since become very poignant to me. We were later blessed by God with a baby girl by adoption and then a biological baby boy.


  533. rachael s says:

    i have been marked by love in so many ways…through family and friends, my husband and children. but it took me a long time to learn that i was worthy of accepting it.

  534. Stephanie says:

    What a beautiful reminder you’ve created. I lost two precious babies, both at about 6 weeks gestation. Though not a day goes by without my missing them greatly, I hold tightly to the hope that I will one day cradle them both in my arms.

  535. Lisa Miklas says:

    I am lucky enough to be marked by love in many ways. What a beautiful necklace and a wonderful tribute to Audrey.

  536. sara clement says:

    Last spring I gave birth to my stillborn son Alexander on Earth day. Six weeks later, I found myself bleeding to death ( I died and was recovered) when they discovered that I had been pregnant with another sweet baby that we named Simon who was also dead. My twins have marked my heart with huge love…and huge loss. I will never be the woman I was before. Changed forever by their beauty…changed forever from losing them. If I were to win, it would be a precious reminder that they were made from love…and knew nothing by love. I would have treasured my sweet twins…our family would have celebrated them every day…this piece would remind us that treasuring them is possible in spirit…it would offer a reminder of the endurance of love. Thank you…

  537. 20 years ago my daughter Jacquelyn was still born. I would be blessed to be able to have this necklace in memory of her.

  538. Amanda J says:

    I miscarried my fourth child in August 2005…can’t wait to see him in Heaven!

  539. Tracy says:

    After being pregnant 7 times and having three wonderful boys and losing four babies, I have definitely been marked by love! Some of that love is here with me and some of it is waiting for me in Heaven!

  540. Laura Dellicker says:

    I have been eternally marked by love. I am a follower of Christ and a strong Christian because of a sweet girl named Haley. I never met Haley, but her life has forever impacted mine. She died when she was only 11 years old after fighting autoimmune hepatitis and pediatric lupus (only 4 other people in the world have this combination of diseases) for almost 5 long years. Not only did she take it on, but she did it with joy. She sang. Haley wrote songs about her disease in order to cope (songs like “Dirty Rotten Liver Blues”) and then started to write worship music. You can read more about her at or at It was her words, her sweet voice, her life of joy and the love of God in her life that led me to be dedicate my life to Christ completely. I will forever be eternally marked by Haley’s love.

  541. Holly says:

    Oh what a gorgeous necklace. I love all your designs and this one is even more special!

  542. Belinda Pennings says:

    My second son out of 5 precious children has cancer for the second time. He is not going to be healed here on earth unless God chooses a miracle. This necklace would be a beautiful necklace to wear to until we are reunited in the arms of Jesus.

  543. Jennifer says:

    I would love to have one of these precious necklaces.

  544. kelli says:

    10 years ago this month I lost a child. We never got to find out if this child was a girl or a boy. I was only a few weeks along. This really was a blow to our marriage. My husband was working long hours, gone or sleeping all the time. I really thought that our marriage would end. A year later, I got pregnant again. Things began to get better gradually and now we have a beautiful marriage with three beautiful sons.

  545. Kenda Bilberry says:

    I was marked by love many years ago when I accepted Christ as my savior but I didn’t quite know the extent of that love (probably still have much more to learn I’m sure) until my precious niece was born in September. Seeing her tiny body struggling so hard to live and looking at her now a thriving nearly 6 month old amazes me.

  546. Robin says:

    I lost a baby due to miscarraige. I never even was able to know if I had a son or a daughter. This child will forever be a part of me.

  547. linda says:

    Lisa, thank you for once again creating such a beautiful work of art, this time together with Angie in memory of her sweet Audrey. My life has been richly blessed and deeply marked by the love of all of my four amazing children. This necklace not only reminds me of my three whose lives still grace this world, but it also reminds me of their baby brother who died waiting for a heart that never came and now lives in heaven.

  548. Jessica says:

    I have been marked by love 6 ways, my hubby, my 3 living children and 2 miscarried babies. Awesome giveaway!!

  549. Mary says:

    What a beautiful and thoughtful piece! My heart was marked by love on October 03, 2008 when my beautiful and amazing son was born!

  550. Sally says:

    I would love to gift this to my Mum, it’s beautiful. Her first and last babies died at four days old, 34 and 12 years ago.

  551. richele says:

    this would make an amazing gift for our birth mom. we are eternally grateful that her loss allowed us to be marked by love.

  552. Kacie says:

    I’ve been marked by love by my family – I am the oldest of six children. We’ve been dragged across the world by missionary parents, and we now live in five different cities – so far away from each other. We’re all watching the youngest – a teenager with Downs Syndrome – grow up. We wonder how life will go for him and how we’ll be a part of that life. Love is heavy, and beautiful.

  553. Jennifer Mc says:

    I could not be more exicted for this line….I have so many I want to show this necklace to. Sometimes words cannot express what the heart feels, but what a touching way to remember those lost…..or even those dreamed about (in my case). I hope I win one to show off to all those who could use an extra special touch in life. God bless you!!


  554. Michelle S. says:

    I work in adoptions, and my life is daily marked by an intense love both on the part of mothers who are unable to parent the child that they love, and adoptive families who are given the gift of a child that they’ve dreamed of. I think these necklaces would be an amazing gift for the beautiful, selfless women that I work with everyday.

  555. Tonya says:

    Oh I love it!!! I’ve followed Angie’s story since before Audrey was born… sad yet so inspiring!

    My life was marked by love when my son was stillborn at 20 weeks. Christian would be 16 years old now and not a day goes by that I don’t think about him in some way. About a year after he died, I took his tiny footprints to a tattoo artist and now have his tiny feet on my ankle. I love having him with me everywhere I go.

  556. Laura {{* *}} says:

    It was April 1990 after 6 years of infertility, surgeries, inseminations, monthly ovulation testing, temperature readings, scientific sex, emotional havoc, and waiting at in-vitro’s door
    that God removed all man’s efforts and
    Gabriel was born~
    and I was saved by the Father’s love for me.

    It was such a thorny way, but faith grew
    and I know now that I was saved by His love all along.
    I look at the names of women who have commented here who are in the grip of infertility
    and will pray for them, that they will not attach that condition to their worth, or being.
    Man said I would have none without intervention and today I have 3.
    All by God’s timing and hand.

    Learn to wait with a heart of thanksgiving.
    Be intentional about it.
    Cultivate it. Water it. Harvest that which can’t be learned any other way.
    Accept what His hand gives.
    Live in peace. Love your husband.

  558. Anne W says:

    My oldest daughter, has been marked by love of four precious children. Her oldest love baby, Ellie, was born with multiple heart defects, and suffered with severe cerebral palsy. Our dear Ellie, went home to be with Jesus in October of 2008 when she was 8 years and 8 months old. All in her family and all who knew her loved and enjoyed her, but none more than her mom and dad. They gave her a lot of love, time, and energy; and they would do it all again, gladly! I would love to be able to give my daughter, this beautiful necklace to wear and remember the love of her first born child.

  559. Mandi says:

    Your necklace is so beautiful! I lost a baby 2 years ago at 28 weeks. His name was Cash. I started having contractions and when I got to the hospital they couldn’t find a heartbeat..he was already gone. I was blessed with another baby boy almost 6 months ago, but I still miss and think about my first baby everyday. Angie’s story has really touched my heart.

  560. Lisa, your jewelry is goergous! I read Angie’s blog faithfully and I began to when I found out last July that my baby was going to die shortly after birth. Mason Asher was born on September 29th, 2009 and he died 25 minutes later. I have never felt a love so powerful as one for a child. This is the only child that my husband and I have had and we have been so blessed to meet him. Thanks for showing that you care!

  561. Lisa McGriff says:

    I have been marked by love in many ways, my daughters Ashley and Savannah are so very precious to me. My dachshund girls Sophie and Lucy bring me so much love. My husband, Lan, has been a late in life blessing, such a wonderful man. GOD has marked by life with Love by bestowing all the above blessings on me..

  562. Jennifer says:

    One of my best friends lost her baby girl at birth a few months ago. I am reminded every day how blessed I am to have a healthy three year old. I would love to win this for her.

  563. Sarah B says:

    By being able to be a mommy to my 3 kids. My middle child, my daughter, has a seizure disorder and is profoundly disabled. My experience of being her mommy has taught me to reach out for help and that there is beauty in vulnerability.

    This necklace is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win.

  564. I would love to give this to a friend of mine who lost her son prior to his birth! His name is Oliver.

  565. Rachel says:

    I have been marked by my Savior who has loved me, forgiven me and called me His own.

  566. Jessica says:

    Gorgeous piece of jewelry! I’d be honored to win one!:)

  567. Holli says:

    What a beautiful necklace. I would love to be able to honor my Grace with this piece of jewelry.

  568. Amanda Upchurch says:

    Hi Lisa! I’m not entering this drawing for myself, but for my cousin. She lost her baby girl after having her for 19 days on this earth. This necklace would be a beautiful way to honor her sweet baby girl!

  569. Laura on Wren :) says:

    I am blessed to be marked by the love of my sweet daughter, Caroline, whom we adopted at three days old and who continues to bring joy to every day of my life. I am also marked by the love of my Father in heaven, and I am reminded of His love daily, particularly during this Lenten season.

  570. Karen says:

    We lost our son, Brandon, to a miscarriage. It has been a difficult and painful experience, but we have learned a lot and grown closer to God through the whole experience.

  571. Carolee says:

    I have a really good friend who lost her 11 year old son. I would love ot win this for her. Everyone who knew Zachary has been forever marked by love.

  572. amy says:

    I lost a girl at 20 weeks 3/8/99.

  573. Debra L says:

    So many heartfelt and heart wrenching stories… mine no more special than the last, but definitely the way I have been marked by love. I lost my son Noah a day before his first birthday to a degenerative brain disorder… have been thinking for a long time about getting one of your necklaces engraved with his name but hadn’t decided on one until now… this one is simply perfect.

  574. heatherly says:

    Gorgeous necklace. I have spent all afternoon reading Audrey’s story. I am so in love with my three little girls.

  575. Amy Gleason says:

    Our first pregnancy ended in the premature birth of our son, Quincy Monroe. We watch him kick his legs, flip around, and suck his thumb while in my belly. Then one day he was gone. We got to hold him, take pictures, and love on him before we handed him back to the nurses. He was perfect all the way down to his little fingers and toes. He was our first son, and he DEFINITELY marked us with his love. We have since had six more children (four girls and two boys), but our first son is never far from our thoughts and always in our hearts! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  576. Brittany says:

    I would to win this for my twin sister who lost her little boy a little over a year ago. It would be a perfect way to remember him.

  577. sheila says:

    So beautiful. Would love to win one for my sister. In God’s Love, sheila

  578. Bethany says:

    That is absolutely precious. What a sweet reminder. We lost a sweet baby boy in our first trimester. And are now pregnant with another sweet baby boy. We have been marked by love… through Him, by His love, healing, and redemption. Blessings and Joy…

  579. I don’t have kids yet, but I have followed Angie’s blog (and yours) for a long time now. In a non-creepy way. :) I have been affected indirectly by miscarriage with family and friends losing their babies, and it is such a deeply sad situation. But each loss has been eventually followed with an amazing miracle baby. So I guess that is how I’ve been marked by love — that God’s love is so great and perfect, and with each loss His perfect plan is always shown.

  580. Cynthia says:

    The way I choose to live my life is my celebration of my children, one living child and six children who died in their first trimester. My love for them, my loss of them, infuses everything I do. I honor my children in the way I caress my son’s cheek when he is sad and in the special smile reserved for my beloved. I honor my children when I take care of myself and when I give of myself to others. I honor my children when I’m generous and when I forgive. I honor my children when I feed someone who’s hungry, give someone a gift just because, and when I am grateful. I honor my children when I extend a helping hand to a stranger, when I smile at a child, and when I tell the living how I feel about them. I know my children would be proud of me and of the life I’ve created.

  581. Candi says:

    Your new necklace design has me thinking. I blogged about it here:

  582. Katy Reitz says:

    Thank you for honoring Sweet Audrey. You continue her story & allow her life to continue! I am so in love with my man & my two boys! I don’t take life for granted.

  583. julie says:

    What a beautiful story!

  584. Cara says:

    My husband and I lost Colten Robert on May 9, 2009. I was 36 weeks pregnant. He will be forever in our hearts. What a beautiful necklace! We are also marked by love with our oldest son Chase who is 3.

  585. Courtney C. says:

    What an amazing way to show that sweet Audrey’s life did have meaning. I know all too well how important it is for the children we have lost to have meaning in this world. I went into labor last year with our sweet baby Nate at 23 1/2 weeks. Our sweet baby did not make it and our lives have been completely changed since. I’ve been looking for a necklace to honor his memory but NOTHING has compared to this. I wish I had the money to just go ahead and purchase this necklace but I don’t right now. We have had another miscarriage since losing him. People don’t understand that making Nate’s small and short life matter and have meaning is so healing for us.

    Thank you for taking the time to create this beautiful necklace. I would loved to be considered in this giveaway.

  586. Jaysi says:

    I love the new necklace! The significance is absolutely beautiful!

  587. Stephanie says:

    Angie’s description for this necklace made my heart cry. I have 2 beautiful girls but have also lost 2 babies. Not having anything tangible to remember them by is the hardest part, especially when you need to talk about it. This necklace is a beautiful way to start that conversation, but also keep the lost little ones close to your heart.

  588. Courtney C. says:

    I am also going to post this on my blog. Thank you again.

  589. RA says:

    my life is a reminder that I am marked by love

  590. hmmm … I suppose reading these comments might be theraputic for me and help me not feel so along.

    I had a miscarriage in October 2009 and am still reeling in it.

    this necklace is beautiful.

    every time I go to hit the link to buy one … i cry.

    i think because i’m sad that i am someone who “can” buy one. that i am a mother without a child.

    thank you for making such beautiful jewelry.

    love – lisa xoxo

  591. Debra L says:

    Just facebooked about the giveaway.

  592. Marked by love – I have two of the most beautiful children in the world! Both were complicated pregnancies, but both are healthy and fill me with joy every single day!

    Beautiful necklace and such a beautiful way to remember life.

  593. Celeste says:

    I am lucky to be loved by a man who has stuck by my side through so many things – loss of parents, a failed business, depression, bankruptcy, challenge after challenge – yet our marraige is stronger than ever. This life has brought us rain, but as the song says “if that’s what it takes to praise You, Jesus bring the rain!”.

  594. Gretchen T says:

    It’s not me, but my amazing husband who has a mark on his cheek from when he was born. When the surgeon was performing the c-section, he hit my husband on the cheek with his scalpel so he has a small scar there. I love looking at it, especially now that his mother has passed away because it always reminds me of her and the relationship he had with her.

  595. AmyW says:

    Marked by love=my three beautiful children. Thank you for doing this!

  596. Jenny says:

    I love your necklaces!

    I have been marked by the love of God, my husband, my children, my family, and unexpected friends found in unexpected places. I have been marked by the love I felt for the 2 unborn children I never got the chance to meet in this life. I am constantly amazed by the impact those two tiny lives had on mine, although they never lived outside my body. I recently discovered Angie’s blog and have started working through it, crying tears of healing along the way.

  597. glau says:

    simply, adorable!!
    can I? :O))

  598. Care says:

    What a beautiful piece. I have a team of 11 babies in heaven waiting for me. Their Coach sent them to homebase to be safe. They are missed. This necklace would be a sweet reminder of the Lord’s grace and faithfulness. Thank you!

  599. Traci says:

    I just got done doing a blog post about this giveaway. This is a beautiful necklace that I would love to share with my mom.

  600. Lindsay says:

    I have been marked by love by reading stories of heart ache and tragedy. I read blogs and listen to other mothers and can’t help but to squeeze my little girl a little tighter, sing to her a little longer and speak to her a little softer.

  601. Hannah says:

    I love this necklace, so beautiful! I have a dear friend who lost her daughter last year and it has been so hard on her. I would love to have this necklace to give to her a a reminder of that precious girl.

  602. Kerrie says:

    My sweet little 20 months old, Gracie, is my daily reminder of being marked by love. Angie and Audrey Caroline’s story inspire me to enjoy every God given moment with all of my loved ones.

  603. Kristin D says:

    I have been marked by love by my two amazing, beautiful children, and one angel in Heaven. Our first is our angel. Then we were incredibly blessed with a daughter and a son. They make me smile and laugh every single day, and I can’t imagine life without them. I am so thankful that they came to me at God’s perfect timing, even though I may not have always thought that it was my perfect timing, I know that God had it all under control, and He picked the most incredible time to bless us with these wonderful children.

  604. Helen says:

    The love of my God, a good man, and two precious little boys!

  605. Heather says:

    I’ve been marked by love in so many ways. . . both happy ways (my 3 precious children who I love so much) to the sad ways (I lost my middle child’s twin early, early on; we lost my sister-in-law to a rare form of cancer; my husband’s cousin was violently killed in the presence of her young son by his father). How blessed I am to have been marked by love in so many ways.

  606. Megan says:

    My sweet (almost ten month old!) son reminds me every day of the love in my life! :)

  607. Traci says:

    LOVE IT! So beautiful!

  608. Heather says:

    I would love to give this piece to my sweet sister-in-law. She and my brother lost their first baby when he was 6 months old. It’s truly affected them and they don’t think they’ll have more kids. Having a reminder of Alan would be so meaningful to her, I’m sure.

  609. Jane says:

    I love it. We lost our third child, Asa, in pregnancy. I was marked in a new way on that day. Love touched with grief . . . no words can accurately describe it. Above all I have been marked by the love of a Savior who will work all things for my good and His glory.

  610. Ashley says:

    I have been marked by the love of my beautiful 3 year old daughter. She reminds me every day of God’s unending grace and love.

  611. rani says:

    What a deep, heartfelt story! Thanks for sharing that! I feel I am marked by love by my two girls, Isara and Tamra, along with their wonderful father, Trevis! I am cherishing my family right now!

  612. faith says:

    Love the necklace!

  613. Our Angel Baby got his wings on April 15th, 2009 when he was born still. My little man is responsible for so many great things in my life. I appreciate my life and the people in it so much more and my faith and relationship with God has changed so much. It’s amazing how such an incredible loss can have such a positive impact on faith, love, and family. Maeson is Our Sweet Angel Baby!

  614. Laura Frazier says:

    My greatest joy in life is being a mother. I have four children. One that died in the womb early in the pregnancy, a precious little boy, Jonathan who also died in the womb at 16 1/2 weeks, a beautiful daughter, Christy who is 21 and a wonderful son, Adam who was born 12 weeks premature 18 years ago. I have a beautiful mother’s ring with Christy and Adam on it along with their birthstones. I always secretly wanted to add Jonathan and Baby Frazier but I wasn’t so sure it would be appropriate. I don’t want them to be forgotten but it’s still hard to answer questions about our loss. Perhaps Audrey’s necklace, marked by love would be a way to honor my precious children in heaven. Thanks for creating keepsakes for mother’s marked by love.

  615. rani says:

    Just facebooked!

  616. Shelly Goguen says:

    What beautiful jewelry and what a special necklace to honor Audrey. I would love to win one.

  617. rani says:

    And just tweeted!!!

  618. Amanda S. says:

    I am marked by the Love of Jesus!!! It sounds sooo cheesy. I know. But it really is what has marked me. I haven’t lost a child, but I have been marked by Love because of the death of Jesus.

  619. Sally Yost says:

    The necklace is beautiful!!!

    I have been held by love for the last 12 1/2 years as we have been blessed with 3 healthy children, the youngest of which turns 6 tomorrow (St. Patrick’s Day) and an angel to watch over us. Each of my children mean something different to me:

    Hannah (7/18/97) – made me a mom and is now making me pay for all my teenage antics.
    Jacob Albright (given to God on 1/27/00 at 20 weeks gestation) – showed me that I could love someone without ever meeting them. I didn’t know I had so much love in me!!
    Davis (7/2/01) – he healed me and continues to be sugar!!
    Matthew (3/17/04) – proved that cancer didn’t break my body.

    We have had many hills to climb, but with each other and the grace of God, we keep making it.

    Thank you for making such a wonderful tribute!!

  620. Lisa says:

    We were marked by love with all four of our beautiful daughters! But our baby daughter, Addison Belle, who now plays in heaven, gave us enough joy in her 3 short years to last us a lifetime….although we can’t compare the loss of a miscarriage, stillbirth, infant, or child, all are a great loss, my heart truly goes out to those mom’s that never held or knew their babies. ♥

  621. I’d love one of Audrey’s necklaces in order to open more doors to help others. When we lost our baby, I knew God had a plan and a reason. It wasn’t until later that I realized I went through our loss in order to help other women dealing with the same loss. What an amazing journey this life is!

  622. Angi Jackson says:

    My life was marked by love almost 8 yrs ago when we found out we were pregnant with our first child. We had tried to conceive for 7 yrs & finally our prayers had been answered. We went in for a routine exam at 8 to 10 weeks to find out that our little angel had not made it. Due to some tests that were ran on our baby we found out that we would have had a precious daughter. We named her Elizabeth Abigail. Again four years later our lives were marked by love with the birth of our second daughter Emily Faith. Your jewelry is beautiful & I would be so proud to own a piece.

  623. Maria says:

    Our daughter, Holly, lived one short day ten years ago. Her short life forever changed ours. I love how the necklace has weight and warmth. Simply brilliant, and so very touching!

  624. Alissa says:

    I am marked by the love of my sweet sister. She manages to say the right things at the right time & she moved almost 10 hours away and I miss her.

  625. Kelli says:

    I am marked by my parents love! They have sacrificed much to give me much. My mother lost a baby before I was born, but she never talks about it. If I win this, I think I’ll give it to my mom, and hopefully remind her that her miscarried child is still remembered.

  626. Lisa Jungheim says:

    I am marked with love by my daughter, Grace, who was stillborn in April, 2004, as well as by her four living siblings. Thanks for this opportunity.

  627. Stacy says:

    April 13th would have been my precious Amy Jo’s 14th birthday. Amy was born and died five days before her due date. She was beautiful! Her grave marker says, “Safe in the arms of Jesus”. My husband and I are so happy that she is marked by His love!

  628. Maeghan says:

    I am marked by the love of my husband and 2 sons. I love being a mom and wife and am thankful to the Lord every day for the job he has blessed me with. I know I am not the best at the job but I learn something new everyday.

  629. Eileen says:

    I have been marked by love by my children—a daughter almost 9, a son 5 1/2 and our angel whom we lost 7 years ago March 10th.

  630. Alissa says:

    Facebooked it too!

  631. Charmaine says:

    I have not lost a child, but I have adopted 3 out of my five children and I think it would represent our family in an amazing way.

  632. Kate Owens says:

    My son Jesse Clate is our miracle baby. After two years of appointments, tests, and negative tests, we finally got our miracle. He’s 7 months old now and I am constantly in awe of what an intricate little person God weaved in my belly when he made him. I am still baffeled. He’s such a happy little guy and everyone comments on that when they meet him. I am forever changed. I never knew how much I was capable of loving.

  633. Sarah says:

    I lost my beautiful son, Luke on January 4, 2010 a few short hours after he was born. He changed my life for the better and I am and will forever be marked by my love for him. I love this necklace and the inspiration behind it- what a beautiful, beautiful idea. Thank you, Lisa!

  634. Julie K says:

    I am marked by the love of my husband and children.

  635. Tessa says:

    I have been marked my love by my family – my husband who returned to me five years ago after being separated for many years, my amazing son, and the hope of another child someday (struggling with secondary infertility). Beautiful necklace!

  636. Mandy says:

    It’s beautiful, just so beautiful.

  637. Diane says:

    It would be such a blessing to have a necklace to help honor my sweet girl’s life. Thank you for the opportunity to have one.

  638. Jewel says:

    I feel like everyone who has come into my life in a close way has marked me in some way. Especially my children, from my oldest step-daughter, my three middle daughters and my baby boy. Through joy and pain they are a big part of my story and my heart.

  639. jenlar3 says:

    I have been marked by love for my first grand-baby, who I will meet one day in heaven.

  640. Julie says:

    Absolutely beautiful and stunning to wear the ones we remember in life until we meet them in eternity with our Creator around our necks. Wow!

  641. Jodi says:

    It is very beautiful and a great reminder of how Jesus loves us.

  642. Kelly says:

    I have 2 beautiful boys and had 1 miscarriage. Always wanted something to remember that life that was lost as well as the busy life of my boys. What a wonderfully beautiful idea!

  643. robyn says:

    I don’t want to be entered into this contest because there are so many people more approriate. I just want to say that I think that this is a wonderful thing you’ve come up with and I’ve admired Angie’s strength for a long time. Thank you again!

  644. Hope says:

    My children are my mark of love. I have 2 beautiful daughters here with me and our precious Zach who is waiting in heaven for us.

  645. Mrs. H says:

    I too have been marked by love, by my sweet baby boy in heaven. Beautiful jewelry.

  646. Julie Downing says:

    We lost our first son, Sammy several years ago – but Jesus has faithfully brought healing and growth from such a sad and painful experience. So many women share this road – I was amazed at how many who have known this heartache rallied around me with love and support.
    Thank you for creating a way to keep the memory of our sweet ones with us – your necklaces are both beautiful and touching.

  647. Kendra says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this and what it stands for!

  648. sarah says:

    my precious big brother was killed in an accident when i was a little girl. i don’t remember him, but i am marked by stories of him and my mother’s undying love for her little boy. i am going to buy this necklace for my mom. the anniversary of his death is friday.

  649. Lisa Macfarlane says:

    My life has been so impacted by Angie’s story. It has changed the way I parent our beautiful blessings Jesse (6), Aysia (4) and Brianna (2). Your new piece “marked by love” is absolutely beautiful!!

  650. Merilee says:

    I have been marked by the love of my tiny baby Hope who left us much too soon and the two miracle babies who later joined our family through adoption and birth.

  651. Megan Davis says:

    I remember the 20 some pregnancy tests I took waiting for more than 1 line to appear. I remember when I finally saw 2 lines. I remember that as the moment I fell head over heels, unconditionally in love with my baby. I remember dreaming of my baby growing peacefully inside me. My baby needed me, and I needed it. I remember the doctor’s visit when we heard the heartbeat for the first time. Tears streamed down our faces at the thought of how real our baby was now, and that we could make that little heart out of our love for each other. I remember them changing due dates for the 2nd time because baby kept measuring small, I remember being concerned and not questioning it. I remember we didn’t have another ultrasound scheduled until 20 weeks and that is when we would find out the sex of the baby. I remember thinking that was too far away. We heard the heartbeat at 7 weeks and 5 days. To wait until 20 weeks just wouldn’t do. I remember making the appointment at the 3d ultrasound place that told me they could tell us what we were having at my current gestation which was 14 weeks at the time. I remember the happiness when I first saw our baby on the screen. The tech had a hard time determining what sex the baby was but after flipping me and baby, side to side a few times she determined we were having a GIRL! I remember being amazed how much she had grown since 7 weeks. She had hands, feet, legs, arms, elbows, and everything else. Her heart beat was music to our ears. I remember crying with happiness as we watched her bouncing around within in me. She needed me to live, and I needed her too. I remember the tech asking me a million times if I was sure I was 14 weeks along. Of course I was sure. Every day that went by was an accomplishment and one day closer to us meeting our beautiful baby. I knew exactly how far along I was. In fact, I was actually 15 weeks along based on my LMP but the due date kept changing. I remember the happiness so vaguely now. I remember the tech saying she was seeing things that were “concerning.” I remember I wished at that time that I could rewind life and never have to hear what she was going to say. I remember her saying our baby had hydrops and possible hydrocephalus. She, like everyone else, said baby was measuring small. I remember her saying things like “if she makes it term.” I remember how it felt to have my happiness ripped from me like I had stolen it from another and never deserved it anyway. I remember the short lived denial, and the quick entrance of sadness. I remember her saying she would talk to the doctor and call me that night. She never called, she didn’t call the next day either. I remember when the phone rang on Jan 2nd. I remember how lightly she told me our baby had hydrops and hydrocephalous. I remember making a doctor’s appointment and thinking that the sonographer had some nerve lying to me about my own baby. I remember the doctor at the office scanning my belly. I remember seeing our baby girl in there bouncing around as usual. I remember the doctor saying “fetal cystic hygroma,” and, “we’re sending you to the specialist right now.” I remember crying so hard in the office of the maternal fetal medicine doctor’s that they let me in a back door away from the waiting room and other pregnant bellies. I remember them scanning my belly again and telling me “this isn’t good.” I remember the burn of the amnio while they were discussing the multiple chromosomal abnormalities that this could be. I remember condtions such as Triploidy, Trisomy 13, and Trisomy 18 being possiblities. I remember them saying they would call in a few days. I remember the ride home in the car with my husband and my baby pleading to be back in the denial phase so this wouldn’t hurt so badly for just this second. The days waiting for the amnio results, those I don’t remember. I remember the genetic counselor calling on Jan 6th and saying he was sorry. I remember the words: “Trisomy 18.” I’ll always remember those words. I remember different people’s words and other doctors saying, “Incompatible with life.” There was talk of termination. I remember we had to make a decision. I remember how cruel I felt as I prayed to God to take our baby girl into his arms so that a decision wouldn’t have to be made by us. I remember thinking that I would never have thought I would ever pray for the death of my child. I did pray, I do remember that. As a week went by, we named our baby girl Grace Willow. We went to the 3D ultrasound place for the last time to get a good look at our baby girl. You could already tell she had her daddy’s nose and her mommy’s cheek bones and feet. We got a recording of her heartbeat put into a stuffed bunny. We also got a DVD of her movement and a CD of all of the ultrasound pictures. I remember the days going by feeling her little flutters here and there. I remember the day of our last ultrasound on Thurs the 14th. We sat in the waiting room forever, today was the day to make a decision. Again I found myself pleading with God to take my beautiful girl into his arms. I remember using words with him like “NOW,” when discussing when I needed him to take her. I hadn’t felt my baby kick yet, she was only 16 weeks. 16 weeks on that day. (17 weeks based on my LMP before the due date changes). However, while pleading with God, my hand on my belly, I remember the one kick like feeling that I felt. The first and last. When they placed the ultrasound on my belly, the doctor said the hydrops had gotten way worse. I looked at her for the last time as he held the machine over her chest and said, “oh honey she’s passed. There is no decision that needs to be made.” I was thankful she never had to suffer and I was horrified that she had left us. I remember being told not to eat after midnight for surgery the next day. I remember the dilators they put in my cervix to prepare for surgery. I remember Jan 15th, the day I woke for surgery, putting my hands on my belly in the shower and crying. For a day, she was in two places at once. I remember the car ride to the hospital thinking I can’t do this. I can’t be separated from her. She needs me, and I need her. I remember knowing I was being unreasonable. I remember not caring. I remember the oxygen mask over my face while they tried to put me to sleep. I remember the burn in my arm. I remember not breathing in the oxygen from the mask because I was too busy screaming and crying “I love you Grace.” Over and over again. I remember the nurse hugging me and crying with me as I fell asleep. I remember waking up without her. I remember reaching to my belly for her and finding emptiness. I remember the pain in my heart, I remember it so well because it hasn’t left. They gave me her tiny footprints, and small keepsakes to remember her by, and it’s not enough. My body and heart aches to hold her, and I can’t. I barely remember the happiness I felt before my baby died. I’ll get there someday I’m sure. But now, 3 days later, it hurts even more. I’ll always be her mommy and she’ll always be my daughter. We never got to hear her laugh or see her first steps. We listen to her heartbeat in the stuffed bunny multiple times a day. Just a reminder that she was real, and she was ours. I am trying to take comfort in the fact that she has grown wings and is flying with angels now. As for me, my tears haven’t stopped, my feet remain on the ground, and I’m wingless. I remember Grace Willow

  652. Jessica says:

    Would love to win this for a friend……

  653. Emily says:

    Love the necklace, and my head is throbbing from crying while reading Aubrey’s touching blog.

  654. Gretta says:

    My children are how I have been marked by love…because doctors told me I would never have any and now I am a Mom! :)

  655. Sharon says:

    I shared on this blog recently how my son died during birth on his due date and how God surprised me with a pregnancy 2 months later and now I am three months along. Lisa’s blog has been such a Godly encouragement and inspiration to me. I often feel alone, forgotten and have trouble trusting God like I did when the pain was most immediate.
    Reading everyone’s comments today was such a blessing, to know I am not alone and so many women are faithfully following God and praising Him in the midst of such intense pain! There is such strength in our Lord’s body of believers and so much love in His presence. When I want more from Him or have trouble hearing Him He just tells me He loves me, and this is what this necklace will mean to me – His love etched into my heart and I plan to surround it with the names of my children.
    I had been trying to decide which necklace to get with my children’s names on it. I needed to be able to wear Joshua’s name around my neck to show that he is real even though I can’t wear him in the sling I planned to carry him in. I am so glad this one will hold heat and feel heavy against my neck, I am crying just thinking of it, Thank you Lisa and Angie for knowing that is what we need!
    Please don’t enter me into the giveaway, my husband was already planning to get me a necklace but I will be blogging about this necklace to hopefully spread the encouragement to friends I know who have recently lost babies –

  656. Laury Booy Hoganson says:

    We had a miscarriage before our son and daughter were born. Having already been at 13 weeks and hearing it’s heart beat, I just did not think we would miscarry. My husband and I were heart broken. All we have ever known was it’s heartbeat, and this necklace being a heart, would really be a great token for us. Where there is great love, there is great loss.

  657. Laury Booy Hoganson says:

    Facebooked it!!

  658. Laury Booy Hoganson says:

    Shared with my community too :)

  659. Kari says:

    WOW!!! What a neat necklace!!

  660. jamie says:

    i love audrey’s story. her parents are such amazing souls. i read audrey’s story {probably last year} and it touched me so that i told some friends and family. thank you for making this gorgeous necklace to remember audrey.

  661. Tara E. says:

    I have been blessed continually by Angie’s blog and the necklace is just as touching! What a sweet physical reminder of a precious life. I’d love to have one of my own in honor of my two sweet kiddos and another sweet baby of mine I’ll meet in Heaven some day.

  662. Andrea says:

    It is my mission on earth to honor life from conception to natural death. We are ALL marked by love.

  663. missy says:

    the other day while running errands my daughter says ‘mommy what are those big rocks’ i answer ‘gravestones – its a cemetery where people are put when they pass away’ – ‘you mean die mommy’ – ‘yes, when they die’ – she goes on ‘is that where grandpa clair is’ (she’s named after him) and i say ‘yes, but his stone is at another cemetery’ she says ‘can we go there sometime to see his stone and take him a note and a picture of me and carter (her baby brother) so he can see what we look like’ – ‘of course we can, but he all ready knows b/c God lets him see you’ (insert tons of tears and happy thoughts through out… and we’re taking flowers too!)

  664. Shannan says:

    For the past (almost) 5 years, my husband & I have struggled with infertility. While God has used us and grown us many times, we were certain the arrival of our first neice was going to be the dawning of a new day. In the early morning hours of July 7, 2009, my beloved sister gave birth to the sweetest baby girl I’ve ever seen, Sydney Caroline. She unexpectedly went home to live with Jesus just 61 minutes later. What this necklace can share (among other things like Angie shared on her blog) is the greatest story of love & hope… Jesus tells us the greatest gift is love…Sydney did nothing but bring love to our lives & the lives of others & through the sharing of her story, we’ve been able to share the gift of hope ~ Jesus! I would love to give this gift to my sister as Sydney’s 1-year birthday is just 4 short months away. What a beautiful necklace & line you’ve created.

  665. Ann says:

    I have not lost a child, but my very dear friend lost her 17 year old son to suicide on Mother’s Day of 2009. Of course, we’ve all held our own children close to our hearts ever since, and we are continuing to lift up our friend each and every day.
    Mother’s Day is drawing near and it would be so wonderful to give her this lovely necklace as a remembrance of her son. It’s going to be a tough day.
    We’ve all been marked by love while comforting and supporting our friend and by keeping the memory of her son alive.

  666. Stephanie says:

    Love, Love, LOVE this necklace.

  667. Jessica says:

    Everyone says it’s a different kind of love when you have kids. And you can’t truly understand that until you’ve lived it. And perhaps almost have lost it. Emma’s a tough cookie, just like your David. And I thank God that she’s still here with us!

  668. Heather says:

    What a beautiful necklace! I read all of Audrey’s story a few months ago and it was so touching.
    I am blessed with a 15 month old baby boy and a husband that is wonderful father to him. They have blessed me with their love. :)

  669. Laury Booy Hoganson says:

    We had a miscarriage before our son and daughter were born. Having already been at 12 weeks, I just did not think we would miscarry. My husband and I were heart broken. This would really be a great token for us. Where there is great love, there is great loss.

  670. Teresa says:

    Such a beautiful necklace for a beautiful girl. I would be honored to wear this sweet necklace and have it remind me of those who have lost (I lost the twin to my sweet Emma) and my 2 beautiful girls that the Lord has graciously let me have here. Ruthie and Emma!

  671. Nicki Brooks says:

    My friend Melissa lost a baby and I would love to give her this gift.

  672. Judi Fall says:

    I lost a niece when she was just 6 weeks old. My heart was broken. The necklace is gorgeous and would give me a token in which I can use to share memories and remember.

  673. becky in maryland says:

    I have followed Audrey’s story and have been a faithful of your blog and shop also~

  674. I’m marked by the love of my husband and 3 sweet girls. This necklace is beautiful, just like the little girl who inspired it.

  675. Laura says:

    I’ve been marked by love 3 times…and they go by the names Isaac, Tyler, and Hunter!

  676. Sarah Hourigan says:

    I lost my first baby to a miscarriage at 10 weeks gestation. We strongly believed the baby was a girl and we named her Macy Jane. I would love to have one of these necklaces to remember my Macy!

  677. Kelly T. says:

    My cousin lost her sweet daughter Sophia shortly after birth in a similar situation to Angie and Todd’s beautiful daughter Audrey. I would love to give her this necklace as a way to embrace the beauty Little Sophia brought to this world. I know she would cherish the gift but the reminder to love and cherish the time spent with her sweet daughter even more.

  678. Mandy Casrey says:

    So pretty. I actually stumbled on your site earlier just to look at the jewelery, I’m pregnant and want something to represent all my kids and saw you had a necklace for little Audrey even before I got my blog update from Angies blog. Its so pretty and so sweet and I just read her comments about how it has weight to it b/c of her comment of wanting Audrey to have weight in the world and that it warms as you wear it. So beautifully symbolic :)

  679. Traci says:

    I facebooked it!

  680. Sarah says:

    I was marked by love the Christmas that my dad was seriously sick and out of work, and all the teens from church got together to buy us each wonderful Christmas gifts.

  681. wendy says:

    how beautiful! Love is so amazing, isn’t it? Once you’ve loved, you’re never the same.

  682. Cindy says:

    We lost our first daughter back in 2003. What a beautiful necklace with a beautiful meaning.

  683. Jenn Hoff says:

    18 months ago today I was marked by love when I met face to face my sweet baby, Harrison, for the first and last time. He went unexpectantly to be with Jesus. Thirteen months later, to the day, his sweet little sister, Charlotte was born. So today is also her fifth month with us here on earth.

    God Bless.

  687. Southern Gal says:

    I saw this on Angie’s blog this morning and had to leave before I could come by here.

    What a beautiful necklace, Lisa. When Angie described its weight and how you designed it from her comments about Audrey having weight in the world….it just did me in. Such a thoughtful piece.

    I’m marked by love by my grandmother whom I wrote about recently. My children. My soon-to-be granddaughter. So much love.

    Thank you.

  688. Shannon says:

    What a beautiful piece of jewelry – I would love to wear this piece to honor my beautiful children Landon and Madeline and also our tiny angel baby that did not make it into this world.

  689. A friend of mine lost her baby girl on February 12, 2010. I would love to win this for her. A little something to warm her heart.

  690. Kaitlin Becker says:

    My two daughter’s………….they fill my heart with unspeakable joy.

  697. Sharon says:

    I just wanted to let the other moms know I posted a poem that sustained me in the first moments when I didn’t know if I could survive the pain of the loss. It was amazing how God brought this poem written long ago by a Christian woman into my life and I hope it can help to heal yours. Thank you all for the encouragement and strength you have brought to me today…

  698. The unconditional love of my daughter has helped to mold me into a better woman, human being and mother.

  699. Crystal says:

    I have two beautiful daughters that have truly marked my heart! We had a miscarriage October of last year and have recently found out we are pregnant again. God is truly awesome!!

  700. Elizabeth says:

    So sweet of you to do such a meaningful piece. I have been marked by love in so many ways. We had the joy of being pregnant 5 times but they all ended before we met out babies. We are also foster parents and are able to love and reciev love by precious kids. We never know how long we have them but we cherish everyday. My prayer is that Gods love them mark their hearts just as He has mine.

  701. Amy S says:

    marked by the love of a Perfect Savior for all eternity

  702. Astrid Lowe says:

  703. Amy says:

    I have also lost-9 years ago this month.
    What a beautiful necklace.

  704. bethzheart says:

    I have definately been marked by love through my 2 beautiful daughters. I would love to win this though to give to a friend of mine. She has experienced being marked by love through her children (6 here and 3 more in heaven). She would love this. Thanks for the chance to win…

  705. Laura says:

    A sweet friend lost her little girl this year just as Angie did Audrey. They sang “I Will Carry You” at her service. This is a beautiful reminder of children that ‘mark us with love’ then go to heaven.

  706. Tori says:

    I would love to win this necklace for my dear friend Rachel, who lost her baby Wesley in her second trimester. Not only has he left a mark on her heart, but on the hearts of all who know and love her.

  707. Kelli B says:

    One of my closest friends lost her first baby at 5 months along. I think about her and my friend daily, and this necklace is amazing and has so much meaning. If I win – I’m giving it to my friend. Thanks for posting the contest!

  708. Prairie Rose says:

    I love the symbolism tucked into this necklace, that the lost child had weight in this world, and the warmth left behind. I would love to win this for my friend who lost her little boy to cancer.

  709. Amy Powell says:

    This necklace is so beautiful! An amazing piece of jewelry for Mother’s Day!

  710. Anna says:

    Lisa, I have been a long-time admirer of your work and I would LOVE to have Audrey’s necklace! I have been struggling with infertility and this will remind me to have hope and trust that the Lord knows what He’s doing in my life!

  711. Myshel says:

    I’ve been marked by love through the blessings God has given me of my wonderful husband, Mark and precious five year old son, Max.

  712. Holly says:

    Angie is such an inspiration to many babylost moms. She was especially kind to me. There is no doubt my daughter Carleigh has marked her love all over me. My whole life has changed because of her and I would never want to go back. Our daughter was given a fatal diagnosis halfway through my pregnancy and I carried her to term. I never knew that one could love a child so deeply that they had never even met, and I had even experienced having a daughter before her. Knowing we had such little time with her made me cherish the moments even more. I didn’t get to spend time with her alive as she was born still but I will never forget those moments of holding her in my arms. She was perfect to me in every way and so beautiful. She has taught me to love deeper and brought me to a greater faith in God. I will never stop loving her or missing her until we are together again.

  713. i have wanted to order the heartstrings necklace for a while for this very reason. as a tangible reminder of the baby i miscarried at 14 1/2 weeks and of my best friend / sister-in-law who i lost two weeks later. it’s been a little over a year and my heart still aches for them daily. this necklace is such a beautiful piece :)

  714. kellyk says:

    my students are a reminder everday that I am marked by love…

  715. Mallen says:

    I have been marked by love, by the way my family, friends, and church has supported me throughout these last three years being a single parent. My husband just left one morning with no warning and it was devastating for me and my three children. It has been amazing to watch God taking care of us through it all. <

  716. Sara says:

    I’ve been marked by love by my twins, Lila & Cole, who I lost last year at 22 weeks pregnancy. I have longed for a piece of your jewelry and would be so honored to wear a piece that was designed in Audrey’s honor. I found Audrey’s story before my children suffered her same fate and knowing her story helped carry me through it.

  717. Kristen says:

    I have been marked by love through my 3 brothers or sisters who are in heaven – my mom had three miscarriages after I was born. She talks about seeing them in heaven often… and I can’t wait! Gorgeous necklace.

  718. beth says:

    marked by love through my children, the three that i have here with me on earth, and looking forward to the day when i see the baby boy who was born too soon in october 2003.

  719. Candace says:

    Marked by love…oh wow. Marked in so many ways. When I think of “marked” I think of something that stays with you. I’ve been marked by love by my family, my husband…and my heavenly Father. I think God “marks” each of us by love in different ways. For me, He has drawn me to Himself through depression. I know, sounds crazy. But through my lowest times, He has been the closest. He has shown me more about Himself in those times and I think I might not have seen Him so clearly had I not been in the valley.

    Love the necklaces!! BEAUTIFUL!!

  720. Philippa says:

    Lisa, that design is just so perfect and beautiful. I’d love one with ‘My Dad’ on the back as he wa such a special and important influence in my life until he died in 1998. We weren’t close when I was really young as he was a general practitioner (doctor) so was very busy. I am also the youngest of three children so they used to get most of his attention until they left home. We ‘connected’ in the most amazing way when I was about 17 and were like 2 peas in a pod from that day on. I treasure every single memory I have of him.

    I can’t have children, which saddens me because it means a part of him will not carry on when I’m gone. It wasn’t meant to be for whatever reason and I feel so blessed that I have such treasured memories of a very special man! Smiles

  721. Becca says:

    amazing necklace…I have 2 angels in heaven waiting on me and one day, I can’t wait to hold them and tell them how much I love them!

  722. AppleTree says:


  723. kimberly says:

    what a beautiful piece of art, and a tangible reminder of our Father’s love.

  724. Anna says:

    I also Facebooked about it!

  725. Andrea says:

    I would love a chance to win this. I have read Angie’s blog from the beginning and love her heart – and yours too, Lisa!

  726. joy caffrey says:

    I would love to be marked by love. if it werent for her blog I dont think I would have greived so well. love your necklaces.. please mark me with love for makayla hope.. I love 2 december babies..

  727. Andrea says:

    FaceBooked the giveaway!

  728. Samantha says:

    What a precious design, the “weight” factor makes it even more meaningful. When Angie described that it reminded her that Audrey was real and had weight, I cried. I’d wear it to remember my granddad who has passed and to remind myself that his love is still very much alive inside me.

  729. Vicky says:

    That is a beautiful piece of jewelry to memorialize a precious life!

  730. shana says:

    I have a friend who lost her little boy last fall (he was born at 20-some weeks and didn’t survive) I would love to win one of these for her.

  731. dawn starkey says:

    My children are testaments of God’s goodness and love for me. I will never forget His kindess.

  732. Meredith B says:

    What a beautiful and sentimental piece! I had a miscarriage awhile back, yrs later God gave me a son that is now 5 yrs old that I was told would not survive in utero and I was recently blessed with boy/girl twins which weren’t supposed to survive in utero either. Due to HELLP Syndrome and a platelet issue during both deliveries I never got to witness the precious births of any of my children, but I’m truely blessed beyond words to have given life to my 3 amazing kids. They are my heart. Since God has given me much more than I’ll ever deserve, I would love more than anything to give one of your beautiful pieces to the mother of my beloved best friend that past away tragically a little over a year ago. Kris was her everything and her heart. His mother never got the chance to say goodbye to her precious son and this necklace would be a token of Kris’ everlasting love for his mother. Thanks so much Lisa for your kind and generous giveaway’s and for the chance to win!

    God Bless,
    Meredith B

  733. Cynthia says:

    I have lost four children… all before 20 weeks. I can not wait to meet those children someday, to embrace them and hold them. Loosing a child is hard I would say the hardest thing to deal with.. I have dealt with tragic things but nothing came close to the heart ache I felt each time I had to say good buy to my baby. I do have five living children who bless my life everyday. I could not be more thankful I get to see them grow up and be a part of their lives.

  734. Elissa says:

    5.1.01 Met my future husband
    12.20.03 Married said husband
    1.24.04 Christofer Antonio came into my life (he’s 6 now!)
    4.30/5.1.09 Lost Tofer’s baby brother or sister.
    9.3.03 Gave my life to Christ…all the many ways I’ve been marked by love.

    I would love this reminder!
