Day 351

Sometimes I think we forget how hard it is when someone miscarries. My niece lost a baby a year ago and my daughter's best friend just lost her little guy. My niece wasn't far enough along to have picked out a name and to know the sex of the baby. My daughter's friend was about half way through her pregnancy and had a name all picked out. She went for a normal prenatal check up only to learn there was no longer a heart beat.
When my niece lost her baby she had this on her Facebook page...
Sometimes miracles arrive so tiny
that we cannot feel the weight of them-
And yet we are still changed,
and we are blessed none the less...
I made them each a plaque so that they would have something to commemorate their little ones.

  1. How wonderful that you did this for these girls. To acknowledge these babies with these plaques is a beautiful gift.

  2. What a thoughtful gift! How did you 'make' the plaques?
