Former Fertility Patient Gives Back:

Hello Nest Egg Family! I'm Deanna — the proud owner of Big Little Wish, a new children’s accessories and clothing company. I’m here to share a bit about our story and our brand.
I've always had a love for fashion and nothing could make me happier than being able to dress up my own little ones in cute outfits and accessories. But let me just tell you, my wish to become a Mom wasn't as easy as I thought it would be... My husband Justin and I went through three and a half years of infertility and numerous rounds of IVF treatments. But finally, in December of 2019, thanks to the phenomenal doctors at our fertility office, we were blessed to become parents and now have two adorable boys who are the biggest inspiration behind this brand.
As a mom of young children, I know how much they love to carry their favorite toys, cars, trucks and snacks around. And doing it with tiny hands isn't practical! That's why our first collection is a line of kids-sized belt bags, perfect for the playground, collecting treasures, travel and more!
Big Little Wish literally is our wish come true after many years of heartache and longing to be parents. We now want to be there to support all of your stories and do whatever we can to help along the way. That’s why we have partnered with Nest Egg Foundation.  1 percent of our proceeds will be donated to this incredible foundation to help other families get through the same battle we did to become parents.
Our goal with Big Little Wish is to bring joy and confidence to every little one out there.
