I wanted to share different places that I have come across that do special things for our little angels. Many of these places I got from my friend Tiffany through her blog.
First is Micahs Gift. This is a mama who lost her little one and then one day wrote his name on a blade of grass. In her words, she could watch Micah grow on this blade of grass even though she can't actually watch Micah grow. When she saw how comforting it was to her, she started taking requests and now has quite a garden of names. I imagine it is quite a sight to behold.
The next one I would like to share is Molly bears. This mama lost her sweet angel at 34 weeks. She was given a weighted teddy bear and it gave her an idea to make her own teddy bear the same weight as her child. When she realized how comforting it was to have something to hold onto that is the same weight as her little angel, something tangible she could hold, molly bears was born. This mama takes requests for bears for angel mommies. She does this all for free, she completely works off donations. I have not received my molly bear yet but we have emailed about it because I was unsure if she would be able to make me a molly bear that weighed 20lbs. She told it would not be a problem so onto the waiting list I went.
Another one I would like share is Heaven's Doves another mama who has multiple miscarriages and really wanted some way to remember them. She always thought of them as birds flying high in the sky, so she chose doves, because they reminded her so much of her sweet angels.
To write their name in the sand. To make a request for them to write your child's name is completely free, but if you want the picture without the water mark it will cost. I had Megan's name done and a friend purchased the picture for me. Its beautiful, I want to cry when I see all these names of all these angels though. Beautiful.
A friend of mine who has been a wonderful person to talk with and Im so grateful that we were able to meet up and share stories, she bought me this beautiful rock with Megan's name on it. I adore it. Treasure Beans is another mama who suffered loss and wanted to reach out and do what she could to help others in her same position. She designs these pretty little stones and then will take pictures among pretty backgrounds. Very special.
