Wishing You Happiness Blog

in remembrance of Ali

I met Sam just over three years ago through a #9month tag on Instagram.  We were both pregnant with little girls and from there a friendship began.  Ali was born two weeks before Ellie;  two beautiful little girls with doting older brothers and proud parents. Our daughters were hitting the same milestones together and it was fun watching the two of them growing up so quickly.  As they both approached their third birthdays we compared notes on their subsequent princess parties.  Ali went with Frozen, and she danced the day away with Elsa, Ellie's mermaid party is right around the corner.

Last week, Ali developed a high fever and flu like symptoms, leaving doctors searching for what was causing them. My heart broke, when days later, I read that Ali had joined the angels in heaven on Thursday night.  There are no words for the grief of the Pierson family.  For days I have been praying and worrying about Sam, currently pregnant with a baby boy, her husband Ryan, and son Peter, and trying to figure out a way to help this family I have grown to care so much for.  A YouCaring site was set for the Pierson family to help offset their significant medical bills.  In honor of Ali, I am offering a custom silhouette of your child for a donation towards Ali's medical and funeral costs. 

Email me a confirmation of your donation and a photo of your child's profile and I will create a custom downloadable art piece of your child.  You can choose between the two quotes, and blue or purple color scheme.   The file will be sent as at an 8 x 10 print size, but you will be able to size it to whatever size you choose.

Above are examples of silhouette photos.  Please get down to your child's level and get their entire head in the photo.  Think about how their hair is styled as well.  I will be able to start producing these on February 7th, with a three week delivery window. You can make your donation here:

Thank you in advance for helping this family during this devastating time.  Hug your loved ones tight. 

Thank you,
