Capture Your Grief: Day 8, 9, 10

I've been a little behind so I'm combining a few posts of Capture Your Grief.

Day 8. Jewelery Do you have a piece of jewelery in memory of your baby/ies/child/ren? Share it!  

I actually have 2 necklaces that were given to me by 2 different friends. I love them both so much. Such a perfect, subtle way to remember both of my boys and always keep them with me.

The round one had a pearl on it that fell off somewhere :( I have two "twin" pearls that I got in Hawaii while I was pregnant that I want to put on the necklace.

The other one was given to me by another baby loss mom. Her little girl lives right next to Carter at the cemetery.

 Day 9. Special Place This could be a place that you visit that brings you peace. Maybe it is a place that you went to when you were pregnant or where your child’s place of rest is.

My special place is Carter's grave. I don't go as often as I would like, but it's really the only place that I feel close to him.

 Day 10. Symbol Do you have a symbol for your baby/ies/child/ren? It could be a butterfly, dragonfly, a humming-bird, dolphin, seashell, share what it is and why it is so symbolic to you.

I don't know that I really have a symbol for Carter. Whenever we are out walking though I always see those little white butterflies and they make me think of him and I feel like he is there with us. 


  1. I am loving this series. So special and I feel like it's such a privilege.

  2. I don't know if it's a symbol, but every time I see a balloon floating through the air I think of Carter. :-)
