I love happy endings and I love being able to help people and when it’s a mom, I’m a sucker for helping moms because I’m a mom and I know what moms go through physically and mentally while raising their children.

I would say being a mom is one of the toughest jobs on the planet and I’ve had some tough jobs to compare being a mom to. Like working in retail for 10 years for some really demanding companies. I worked for The Limited Corporation, which is the military of retail companies. You learned how to do everything in your power to make that sale and do your best when doing anything retail related. You worked all night long if that’s what it took to complete a floorset and you worked two days straight without sleep if corporate was going to visit. You did whatever it took to display perfection because that’s how you were taught to work.
With that being said, motherhood is still a harder job than working for the Limited Co.
I was contacted be a mother that has a wonderful story. She has been mentally and physically dragged through motherhood with a wonderful and surprising outcome. The tale with a happy ending.
This mother couldn’t conceive a child of her own, so she and her husband decided to go through the physically painful process of shots and waiting and shots and waiting. In the meantime decided to adopt a child from China to raise since they were losing hope at having a child of their own, but still wanted to love and raise a child and have a family.
In the process of adopting their baby from China, Monika got pregnant and gave birth to a healthy baby girl last June.
To help pay for the adoption costs and the fertility treatments, Monika has an Etsy shop where she sells hand-knit gloves, scarves and leg warmers, but her speciality are the gloves. She has tons of colors and styles that she sells hoping to raise the money to help her family replenish the funds they have spent to make what their family is today.
Monika sent me some gloves to review and I love them. I’ve never had the fingerless gloves and really like them because I don’t have to take them off to button my daughters coats. This is a huge plus because I already have so many things to have to keep track of, my children being the most important, so worrying about where to put my gloves while getting my children bundled up is last on my list of concerns.
Thanks Monika for sharing your heartfelt story with me and thank you for the cool gloves you sent me for review. I will be getting a lot of use out of them and will be sending customers your way when all the compliments come flowing my way!

Wow! That was a great story, and if those are the gloves pictured…very cute. I will definitely check out her shop. I am so glad that her hopes for a family are becoming fulfilled. 🙂
