Most of you will likely see my FB status, but just in case I wanted to share here as well. I will just C&P. This is a JM mama, btw.

Many of you may remember my statuses last summer of my best friend and her husband, who after years of fertility treatments including a failed IVF, were matched via FB with a birth mom, attended her prenatal appointments, were there when she gave birth to a little girl, and brought her home. 11 days later the adoption was contested and their daughter was taken from them.

In nothing short of a miracle, the very same day they lost their little girl, they learned they were naturally and unexpectedly pregnant. Her due date was this week, and at 10:03PM last night, their baby girl Rhiannon was born sleeping. My dear friends are now trying to come up with funds for a burial plot for their precious daughter. Please, if you have any money you can contribute, it would be so SO appreciated during this unimaginably painful time.

I've set up this page for anyone who is willing to help. Thank you for your consideration.
Rhiannon's Memorial Fund

ETA: I know asking for $ is not allowed on JM, and I would post this in the private FB group instead if I were able to. Please don't feel that you have to contribute financially, prayers and good thoughts are appreciated as well.

Shannon, I am so very sorry to hear this I read her blog before, so have a bit of an idea on her background. My condolences to the family. I don't have any words to express how sorry I am this happened to her.

Oh no! I just found out she was pregnant. I had no idea and was very happy for her. This is unimaginably horrible!

I remember her from other boards and the brief time she was here. Another JM friend told me today and I didn't know she was pregnant either. It's just so freaking unfair. I am so heart broken for them, there are no words. I can't help financially but I am praying for them

I'm so very sorry, for both the adoption falling through and such a heartbreaking loss. She deserves to be a mom so much. I can't afford to donate to anything right now, and I'm genuinely sorry not to be able to Shannon. But she is definitely in my thoughts and prayers. RIP angel baby Rhiannon. Xxx.

thoughts and prayers to her and family...
It's just not fair how the world treats those that are genuinely deserving...
Hope that things will turn up for them and that a miracle will happen....

My heart just sank. I can not imagine the pain they have had to, and continue to, endure. My thoughts and prayers are with them and I hope they are blessed with a another child who they can raise and watch grow very soon.
Thank you Bokkechick for my siggy!

Oh dear Lord, please comfort this couple's bleeding hearts! God I pray that you would wrap Your loving arms of comfort around them, and that they would experience the peace that only You can give in a time like this.
