Anika
I too have an Isaiah. I just wanted to tell you that you have chosen a strong name for a beautiful and strong child that you had. My Isaiah is strong willed and sweet just like I know yours is too. He seems to be important to your community and I see why. He is beautiful. Lots of love to you and your Isaiah.

Lots of love to all you moms. All your ideas and things that you have done to remember your child is beautiful and I am in tears reading all this.

It took me quite a few years to open my heart again after loosing Tyler. I took a polaroid picture of him that my ex-MIL took and had it blown up to 5x7 size and then framed it in an 8x10 cherry frame with matting. Tyler has a nice cherry shelf of his own in my room, hanging on the wall next to my bed. My dh (not Tyler's dad) has been very supportive. For the past three years, my mom has given me earrings with Tyler's birthstone on his bday (march), in 2005 Tyler would have been 10..I will be creating a sort of mother's ring with Tyler's birthstone. I cannot wait. My dh also bought me one of those mothers necklaces with Tyler's birthstone in it. I also carry Tyler's mass card in my checkbook, wallet, and pocket calendar.

My mom has always had a picture of Tyler in her room as well, Nana's 2nd grandson...has to have a place for him.

My dad gave me new pics of the headstone with Tylers name on it after his dad died (all 3 are buried together...grandma/pa and Tyler) I waited 10 years for this...right before my grandpa died he gave my dad the okay to have Tyler's name on it.

I've been here before, but wasn't ready to share this detail yet. I feel today it is appropriate (Oct 15). When we were in the hospital they made molds of our son's feet and hands to have forever. We were able to only spend a few moments, what seems like to be a mere second in time, with him. We will always have his tiny hands and feet. My husband is very talented and always thinking of wonderful things to do. I said to him one night that I wished we had more of Logan's hands and feet because I was terrified that one would break (fortunately they gave us three of each) because that's all I have to hold on to. Anyway, my DH researched this product (I can't think of the name) that you can create a cast from a mold already made. It's a very durable substance and you can re-use it up to like a hundred times. He purchased pewter that could be melted and poured to make a new mold. We gave my father a tiny little foot for Father's Day and it literally floored him. He carries it in his pocket and he says he always has his little Logan with him. I have yet to receive mine.....but when I do I will carry it always. It may sound strange to some, but it's a way to hold on to my little boy. Our son was only 1lb 2oz so he was extremely tiny. My DH will carry his on an annual fishing trip that all the men in our family take together each year. All the fathers and sons....Logan will still get to go fishing with his dad.

Hugs and love to you all....God Bless.

The little molds sound beautiful. I'm so glad your husband is getting them made.

I had Mary Rose's footprints made into a rubber stamp. I have the little ring they gave me in the hospital on a chain. I have also had a pencil portrait drawn by Dana from www.portraitsbydana.com . It is my avator and also in my sig line. We donate teddy bears to the hospital in her honor for mothers who have lost a baby. I have a friend who got her daughter's footprints tattooed on the tops of her feet.

Gossamer what a wonderful picture of Mary Rose. I love the you had a rubber stamp made of her feet. You are an angel yourself for caring about the other mom's - like us - who lose their little one.

You are so sweet to me kstevens. We all have to do what we can to help everyone we can or there is no point to the pain we have suffered.
