CROWDRISING SINCE: Apr 20, 2015
Stuff About Me:

I am Amy Balentine.  I am a follower of Christ, a wife to Adam, and a mother to Teddy, Simon, Thomas and Peter and Founder of You Made Me Mom, which is a support group for mothers who have lost babies during pregnancy of infancy.  The support group is a result of my experiences with my children who made me mom, but also our Lord, Jesus Christ, who ultimately made me mom.  

In October 2012, I gave birth to our first child, Theodore (Teddy) Boyd.  He is now two years old.  He is wonderful.

In May 2014, I gave birth to our second child, Simon Adam, who lived 7 glorious days and 22 grace-filled minutes.  He died on May 21, 2014.  Simon had full Trisomy 13 - typically a fatal diagnosis.  

In November 2014, I gave birth to our third child, Thomas Job.  Thomas went to be with our Lord at 13 weeks gestation.  I birthed his body and we were able to set eyes on his magnificent body.  

In September 2015, I gave birth to our fourth son, Peter Simon.  He brings us much joy.
