Letters to Pearl: a collective tale of hope

In the six weeks since her birth, Baby Pearl has made quite an impact on the world around her. In addition to her family and East Nashville community, Pearl’s story is being followed friends and strangers around the country and beyond. (Though it is true that with the help of blogs and Twitter, they don’t feel like strangers for long.)

Throw in a beautifully written article in last week’s Washington Times — that was then syndicated on several prominent sites — and it seems little Pearl is already changing the world. Pretty amazing.

Letters to Pearl {a collective tale of hope} provides a way for Pearl’s friends, new & old, to share her story with their world and to tell others, including the Brown family themselves, what knowing Pearl means to them. We would love for you to participate!

One thought on “Letters to Pearl: a collective tale of hope

  1. II have started a page supporting parents and family/friends of children who have terminal birth defects. My daughter was declared incompatible with life at 19 weeks and that diagnosis changed our worlds. The definitions used with terminal defects are inaccurate for many of the infants. Some are living days, weeks, months and years past birth. We are trying to get support to have the definition changed from incompatible with life to fatal defects. We are not pushing political views or pro or anti abortion only a definition change for our children. If you would support us in any way here is our facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/EndincompatibilityWithLife
