I am just too excited not to share, with all of you who have joined us on our heart journey with our Miss Ruby Jane.
They are here and they are listed in the Love From Ruby Shop!
The goal of the Scars are Beautiful shirts is to help my girls and others like them embrace their scars–they’ve both had major surgeries which has left them with large scars. And I want them to be proud of what those scars represent: courage and hope and strength. Each shirt purchased will help a family with a medically fragile child. A portion of the profits will be donated to a nominated family. You can see how to nominate a family HERE.
I have my own scars from many surgeries, but I wear this shirt for my kids. My son also has had surgeries leaving him scarred, so I need to design something for boys as well. These shirts are obviously not just for heart kids. Or heart moms. There are so many surgeries that happen, so many life threatening illnesses that require surgery, and I want these kids to feel strong and beautiful and perfectly imperfect.
I want my kids to know they are beautiful how they are. And really, that I am thankful for their scars because it means that they were saved through having a life-saving surgery.
The shirts are made in Honduras and screen printed here in the U.S. More details on sizing and material and care instructions can be found under the listings in the shop.
For some reason on the self-timer on my remote, the pics get a bit washed out, but I still love this picture.
