    Thank you! A garden is such a beautiful idea and to involve your mother makes it so much more special.

    Spaklestar - A Star is a wonderful idea!!


    Alie121 - What a great tattoo

    Trying for#1 - It's great to have something beautiful that you see everyday!!

    I am sorry for your loss ladies but it is wonderful to hear all the different ways that we remember and keep them with us forever. We also bought an ornament for the christmas tree for the baby, since all the other kids have one we thought they should too.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    I've bought a ring with an aquamarine stone as I lost my baby in March - it's something I can wear every day but not obvious why to everyone else.

    The ring is such a lovely idea. I haven't done anything yet, I suppose I didn't even consider it until I read this. I think I might now though, they're all such lovely ideas :) xx

    I got a blue bird tattoo after my mc. We had gone to Build A Bear when we found out we were preg and 'built' a rainbow bear.

    "Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly..."

    Your ideas are beautiful ladies, really thoughtful and each one so wonderfully personal xx

    When I lost my little one I picked a special piece of woodland to hold a memorial. I’m pagan and wanted to honour their memory in the best way I knew how to.

    I designed my own memorial ceremony and shared the day with a few close friends who I could not have got through this without.

    We shared wine and cookies in remembrance and I released a star shape balloon promising to return on my due date to name a star in memory.

    And to my word I will be returning on the 3rd October to remember my little hero, and we are going to try and stargaze and hopefully see the star I've chosen (fingers crossed for the weather).

    I have a small silver box which I received shortly after for my 21st birthday and I am using this as a memory box.
