A Yerdle Story: Baby Surprise Announcement

Heather R. from Royal Oak, MI shares a beautiful baby story with a surprising twist. Here’s Heather’s story:

“I found out I was pregnant with my second baby girl in January 2015. I. Was. ECSTATIC. I wouldn't need to run out and buy all things boy! I could use all of the pink clothes and flowers and fluffy stuff that I had stored away in my basement from my oldest daughter, and would get to relive all of the baby moments that I hated to pack away 2 years ago.

Then, it happened... I went in for a last minute ultrasound 2 weeks before my scheduled c-section and listened to the ultrasound tech exclaim "Look at that! Boy parts!".

The next couple of weeks were filled with tears of unpreparedness and shopping trips to discount stores. There was NO way I was going to be ready in time. And I wasn't.

But, when he joined us, he had clothes to keep him warm and pink sheets to sleep on at night.

Shortly after his birth, I discovered Yerdle. An online garage sale? SWEET! Let's see how many people want to get rid of baby boy clothes! And that's how the love story began…”
