Alex and Ian, our sons who were born and died on this day in 2007, I yet again have to shift my wondering about how their lives might have been. Eight seems so old for these boys that we only ever held and gazed upon as tiny babies. Eight long years without them. As always we miss them and wish they were here to celebrate with us.
Instead we will eat cake in their memory. (More on that soon) And I share a few links I have come across over the past year that relate to stillbirth and loss:
Angel Gowns - an organisation where people donate old wedding dresses to be used to make outfits for stillborn babies.
Why I talk about my stillbirth - Alana Rosenstein in the Huffington Post
Losing Iris: the quiet despair of a child stillborn - Sarah Hughes in the Guardian
Pregnancy loss cards by Jessica Zucker. When someone experiences preganancy loss, family and friends often don't know what to say. These cards have thoughtful messages for such occasions.
A bed for my heart - website for parents who have lost a child
