Capture Your Grief: Days 4 & 5

Day 4: Legacy
When our babies aren't given the chance to leave their own legacy, we as their parents, want to leave one for them. We have donated many, many diapers in Carter's name and I love the idea that his name is written down and it's "out there" travelling the world.

However, I think the bigger legacy is us. Our family. We are forever changed because of Carter. He has made us slow down, be kinder, and love more. I think that is his legacy for us, to make the most of our lives that we have been given.

Day 5: Memory
I hate that I don't have more memories of Carter. Some of my favorite memories are how excited we were to be having twins. I loved getting to tell people that we were pregnant with two babies and watching their faces. And, of course, I will always treasure the memories I have of holding my son and studying his sweet face, trying to remember every detail of him, so tiny and perfect.


  1. I love reading your blog and I am so happy that you get to share your life with us. I am so sorry for your loss and I know your 2 miracles keep you going. I am "gamma" aka grandma to a 23 weeker who keeps me going everyday with her 11 year old sister (termie)
