And here’s the part you’re waiting for. The 2015 Dream Baby Shower winner is…

Mandy Clarke

Mandy and her got married in Sept 2013. Soon after she found out she was pregnant then she miscarried right before Thanksgiving.  In the June 2014 she was so happy to be pregnant again. She had some issue and went to the ER and was told there were 2 babies. She followed up a week later with her doctor only to find out she had again miscarried. She and her husband along with friends and family were devastated. She had worked with kids all her adult life and is an assistant director of a daycare. She was very depressed and started attending church.  She embraced God and left it up to him if she and her husband would be able to have a child of their own.  In the meantime, she has stepped up to helping out with her nephew will his father is not in the picture. Mandy and her husband announced in Sept 2015 they were expecting in March 2016 and she was 14wks. Now she is 22 weeks and expecting a boy and everything is ok. She is the most deserving person I know. She has been through so much.

I would love to have a dream baby shower! My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about 2 years! We have had many heart breaks over the past two years with 2 miscarriage, with the last pregnancy being twins.This June we found out we were expecting once again. My husband and I have prayed for this moment for years. While being pregnant should be a joyful occasion, this pregnancy has been rather scary. Even though all doctors appointments have gone right and the baby is doing well it’s still scary knowing something could go wrong at any time as with the last pregnancy.Trying to think positive and having a loving supporting family and friends has helped us get through these rough times. Please consider my husband and myself for the dream baby shower.

Congratulations Mandy, we will be in touch soon regarding your prizes.

Thanks to the amazing local business who’ve donated to make such a wonderful prize package!
