Today, I want to share a photo-a-day project I’m participating in called “Capture Your Grief,” which was created by Carly Marie, an amazing force in the babyloss community. It provides a way for bereaved families to process and share their grief during Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month (click the image to read more):
I’m not on an actual computer much these days, because my grateful arms are filled with my earth baby, I decided to participate primarily via Instagram. At least for Calvin’s day (and hopefully more), I’m sharing today’s subject, “Memorial,” in this space, my babies’ space:
Day 5: Memorial (April 2011). After our losses, we decided we would start participating in the March of Dimes walk in honor of our babies. Louie created this design, which we printed onto iron-on paper. I love seeing their names together.
My sweet Calvin, I think of you and your sisters everyday. I can’t believe how long it’s been without you. I will always long for you and Rainbow and Gaelen, but I’m grateful to have your baby brother—I know I see glimpses of you in Charlie. We love you so much. We love you always. Happy 3 years and 7 months in heaven, my firstborn.
