AngelPics Project

In the days after losing Sophia & Ellie, I spent a considerable amount of time searching the Internet for various resources. I found many things I wanted to read, but just didn't have the energy to invest in it at the time. So, I saved it all to my desktop which now has LOTS of little icons on it. I was trying to clean it up the other day and ran across the AngelPics Project icon again. I clicked on it, not really remembering what it was about. This is a company that specializes in photo restoration. They have a special project that they offer to parents who have lost a child at birth. They will retouch 2 photos free of charge. It is very simple to do. You create a login, download your 2 photos, give them specific instructions on what you would like done and submit! It was very easy. I submitted my 2 pictures on the 4th and they were done on the 7th.
I did not want much changed on my pictures. I asked for their skin colors to look more natural and for the pictures to have a softer focus. I want my babies to look like my babies, just a little more lifelike I guess. They are lovely. The link to the site is below and a before and after of one of my pictures.

This community continues to amaze me. There are so many people who are so willing to help ease our pain. Some of them have never been in our situations, like Debby and others know all to well what we are going through, like Carly. Thank you to all of you who support us, think of us, and pray for us. You make my world more bearable in this very difficult time.


  1. AWww... they did a good job. I'm glad you saved their page. Do you think you will frame them? I would, they are so precious.
    Thinking of you and your sweet girls..

  2. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog and for saying a prayer for me. You constantly remain in my prayers. After my TTTS diagnosis I realized that I had been ignoring symptoms, believing that they were just part of being older and carrying twins. Not anymore, anything out of the ordinary is immediate cause for concern.

    I realize how blessed I am to have had doctors that were vigilant and to receive immediate care. It scares me knowing how many women and even doctors don't understand TTTS and therefore are putting their babies lives in danger.

    I believe that you can do so much good by telling women carrying multiples what you told me. I plan to do the same with regards to TTTS.

    The photo retouch looks lovely, what a wonderful service they provide. Blessings to you

  6. Oh honey, I love that! Thank you so much for sharing.
