For Genevive

Sending out a request to all. Please visit Genevive's website here, and, if you can, contribute something to her headstone (there's a button on my blog for ChipIn, or you can visit her ChipIn page here).

In a nutshell, Genevive and Lily were premature twins. Lily thrived, while Genevive was struck down with a necrotic bowel. Mom and dad are dealing with new parenthood, grief, and financial hardship all at the same time. Mom's greatest wish is to give Genevive the headstone she deserves.

My greatest wish for Genevive's mom is that she doesn't feel hopeless about her daughter's unadorned cemetary plot anymore.

If you can, if God leads you, please join me.


  1. That was very nice of you to post about Genevive. Do you know the mothers address at all? I think that I am going to mention my
    For Your Tears and see if she will give me her address for a hanky.
    Also I did make a donation for the stone.

  2. I wish I knew more about the family. I picked up the cause here: http://2feetonearth1inthestars.wordpress.com/2009/06/23/help-another-angel-mom-in-memory-of-genevive-mary-cooney/
    Maybe Melissa can fill you in on more. You're an angel for donating. I know this poor mom is so frustrated, her cause is losing steam and she's still got about $400 to go. So thank you. Know that you've given her a little more hope. :)
