I attended a “Walk to Remember” remembrance walk and ceremony in Clearwater with some of my BabyCenter GBJ girls, their husbands, and their rainbow babies. Part of it included putting flowers on and around a memorial tree, planted in the park for babies who have died and their families.
The three flowers toward the top are for my three babies in heaven.
After we placed the flowers, we were given big cupcakes and sang Happy Birthday to our babies. It was difficult, but good, needed. I’m so glad to have been able to share in this and to honor Calvin, Rainbow, and Gaelen.
This post is part of the NaBloPoMo daily blogging challenge. The theme for this month is “Between,” which goes perfectly with how I’ve been feeling and where I find myself: between hope and despair, between love and fear, between trying to conceive and holding a living child in my arms.
