Well I certainly had nothing to do with this one but here it is. Just shows what an impact Isaiah had. A multimedia centre in a township school is going to be named for him.

I am going to learn to garden soon and want to make him a memorial in my backyward.

I know that there is a bench in Central Park dedicated to a baby--one of the producer's at the TODAY show told me her friend had lost her baby and had done this. I will find out (if I can) where it is and let you all know so, if you like, you can find it when you pass through NYC or if you live there.

We are donating a pink dogwood that a friend bought for us to a community garden and will dedicate it with a plaque this fall. We had considered planting it in our yard, but thought donating the tree was a better idea because that way other people can enjoy it. We had our daughter cremated, so there's no grave to visit. This will give us a place to visit and to bring our future children to.

Have you done something special or have a special place you can go to honor your sweet baby like a park or lake... Let us know as your idea's might be able to help someone else who is looking for a perfect way to celebrate the life of their child....
