Many of you have contacted me and said that while you don’t need a copy of this book, you would love to help get these books into the hands of grieving families who have experienced an infant or baby loss.
And I am excited to say that we can do that!
The way to donate books is: You can purchase a book through me (use my PayPal link and in the comments box, let me know where you would like the books to be sent and how you would like the dedication to be made on the inside bookplate).
Here is the book plate I put in the front of the books that went to WMIT, 106.9 The Light Radio Station:
Books have also been donated to the Wilkes Regional Medical Center. Here are the book plates I used for them:
These bookplates are a simple way to let the receiver of this book know that this book does not hold the opinions of the hospital staff and that they are not trying to force any religion on anyone. The books is simply a gift to a grieving family.
This is a great opportunity for many reasons. Since my books are “potentially offensive,” it is a great opportunity for us to put a Christian resource in the hands of grieving parents at an important crossroads in their lives. I would never force my Christian beliefs on anyone, but I do pray that through my life and my words others will be drawn to the Lord and will understand how much He loves them.
So after much prayer and encouragement from different people (thank you guys for spurring me on…I can get a little too content in my bubble), I have gotten permission to donate these books to the following locations:
WMIT, 106.9 The Light (A local Christian radio station that houses certain books to be mailed to listeners who call in with prayer requests. I Have a Brother books can be available to listeners who have had an infant/baby loss and are calling in with a prayer request after such.)
Brenner’s Children’s Hospital, Winston-Salem, NC – This is the hospital where Daniel was for two days and where he died. I cannot say enough good things about this hospital and I am so thankful that we can minister there. (Hopefully these books will be mailed later this week!)
Wilkes Regional Medical Center – This is a local hospital where I have a contact in the birthing center. They have received a few books already.
If you would like to donate your books to another location, please let me know where (if you have a contact there, that would be fabulous), and I will be more than happy to work that out! Just send me a message. (I have a contact at Levine Children’s Hospital and hope to work that out soon.)
Thank you to everyone who has already donated books – I am so grateful for your support and pray that God will use this book to draw grieving families closer to Himself.
“Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith…Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:22a,23
