I won this Emmy last weekend for a story I did on Marine Sgt Michael McCravy. He had ALS and was struggling to get basic needs from the VA. He died the night before our interview. Tonight I met his widow to give her the award for all she did to continue her husbands fight. She says she’s going to put this Emmy right next to his ashes and folded American flag. #courage #fightforchange ... See MoreSee Less
One of my reps, Amanda Lauren Desmé, reached out to me to see if I would be willing to help make a sign for her husbands homecoming. Little did I know it would be my favorite item I have ever made!
Amanda and her husband did IVF and found out they were pregnant! Around 32 weeks, he got deployed.
Amanda had to go through birth without him and had to begin raising sweet baby Dallas while awaiting his homecoming.
In the meantime, she would always send photos and video chat when they could, and she would always use a letter board for updates. So she thought, what better design for a sign than one designed to look like a letter board!
Well, after about 7 months, 6 delayed homecoming dates and 1 sign damaged in transit- HE’S HOME and it was so perfect!! 🎉🎉
I am so thankful I got to make such an amazing project and was apart of such an unforgettable moment. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

UPDATE FROM THE MAMA:
"Thank you all so much for the kind words! I don’t think we expected this to reach so many.
We have gotten tons of messages and request on Facebook, Dallas Rose is very happy and so is dada! He jumped right into daddy life . I got asked a lot about my IVF journey and i promise it’s all on my Instagram and all throughout my Facebook we are so happy to have him home and our hearts are with every family who goes through the same thing. You are all so much stronger than you think you are. And in that moment you reunite all the time apart just fades away, it’s truly amazing.
We actually have a video from homecoming too that will be posted up today! And more photos that will be up on my Instagram. If you wanted to follow along on the rest of our journey, Instagram be where to do it
This couldn’t have came together without Justice Parker from Mom-Maid Crafts & Co. she made the letter board journey come full circle and it was beautiful to see." ... See MoreSee Less
