Our First Featured Blogger!

I am very excited about today's featured blogger and am so pleased she agreed to be the very first featured blogger here at Where the blog are you? If you haven't read up on how this blog works then go here first.

Carly, is a beautiful woman from Western Australian whose blog about life after the loss of a child will touch and inspire you.

Carly also has a memorial site honouring the lives of other children whose lives have tragically been cut short.

Christian's Story Here Carly shares her terribly moving experiencing of giving birth to her beautiful son Christian. I am touched by her honesty and moved to tears by their story. Don't read this post in a hurry, it deserves your full attention.

Water In this post Carly helps us understand why she is drawn to water and how it has taken the place of healing in her life.

Our Seashore of Names A seashore of people united in grief, with love in their hearts. Enough said.

Thanks Carly for taking us on a walk through your life in these blogs!

Remember that you need to leave a comment on this post to let me know you're here and then go and visit Carly and leave her lots and lots of comments so she knows you visited.

Finally, make sure you come back tomorrow for another Featured Blogger AND our very first C-O-M-P-E-T-I-T-I-O-N!!!

Spread the word, go blog about this!
