• November 30 is Newborn Heart Defect Screening Awareness Day

    August 31, 2016

    Within days of my daughter’s death, I felt a pull at my heart. Something, possibly her, was tugging saying, share her, share her, share her. I wanted to share her with the world. She was so beautiful. She changed me so much. I just couldn’t let all that love and light die. I wanted it…

  • StoryCorps and Stillbirth–Your Story Matters

    August 22, 2016

    Stories matter. Your story, and your child’s story, may not resonate with everyone, but it might contain in it an element that makes someone else feel less alone or less crazy, it might nudge someone to help a friend they’d overlooked before.

    When and how was the Ramsey Keller Memorial started? RKM was started in December of 2011, just one month after losing our sweet girl.

  • Teamotions {Healing, Tea + a Promo}

    August 2, 2016

    Teamotions is more than a tea company; it’s part of my personal journey. In 2008, I lost my twin daughters Aubrey and Ellie just a few weeks after they were born. Struggling to cope, I found solace in tea. One day my sister Crystal said, “I wish there was something I could put in your tea to make you…
