How do we make memories when we were deprived of precious time with our babies?
Memory Boxes ~ Keepsakes ~Garden and Grave Memorials
Some of us will get to meet our babies and even spend time with them after they pass. Some of us my have scan pictures or even photos. Some of us will have clothing or a teddy or a special memento from the hospital. Sadly some of us will feel like we have nothing. You never really have nothing, because you did have time together be it short. They will always be things that remind you of that time together during pregnancy. A lot of parents have an image that reminds them of their baby, for us that is a rainbow. We do have a a memory box for the first baby we lost and never got to meet and in that box we have the scan pictures, pregnancy test, letters and a few other things that remind us of baby. I am compiling a list of places that provide items to help you create some special mementos and also this link to our pinterest page which gives examples of some free or low cost ideas.
