This week, our spotlight shines on Crystal Silveous , from the blog Living Through Our Loss. Crystal truly touched my soul when I ran across her blog, and after only a few minutes on her site, I know she will touch yours as well. Started in 2015 after unfathomable loss, Crystal’s blog is dedicated to her Angel Averie. She feels empowered to help others who find themselves in similar situations and offers grief support, as well as a loving connection between other families that share such a tremendous loss.

One of the many selfless acts she has done is offering a special place on her site that honors ALL beautiful angels that left us too soon. For more information on how you can get your sweet angel included, visit this site.

In a recent post, Crystal shared:

Last night I danced with Isabella as we listened to music. In the moment I felt happy. Blessed to have another beautiful daughter I could hold. I thought about how life can change in seconds. How unpredictable it is and how when it takes a drastic turn we all have to navigate through it somehow. I’m still living my life for Averie. That will never change. But now I want to live for Isabella and more then anything for myself. I want to make both of my daughters proud of the person I’ve become. I am not sure how I ended up here, still standing, but you better believe I’m going to continue to stand tall regardless of what life throws at me.

In the face of tragedy, Crystal openly shares her grief, her memories, and her heart with the world. Her raw and honest writing will make an impact on you and the most positive way. She is an example of both strength and dedication, as well as an overwhelming sense of goodness. Way to go, mama! Averie is so proud to be your daughter. 

On another note – and this seriously gave me chills – when I contacted Crystal to let her know the date that her Spotlight Series would go live, she let me know that it was the day before Averie’s 2nd birthday! {Chills!!!} Sweet Averie had a hand in this, there is no doubt.
