A Different Kind of Memorial
It isn't easy to know what to say to someone who has lost a child. No one wants to bring up sad feelings, but remaining silent is often worse than saying something. Mama Bear has a helpful post about this very subject.
Recently on the Lucy Ladybug Knit-Along, a request was made by a member wanting to help her friend deal with the loss of her baby. Her friend has a fear that as time goes by, no one will remember her precious daughter, Marlowe. Her plan is to donate 200 baby items in Marlowe's name and then present a photo scrapbook of all the items to her friend as a tribute to Marlowe. Anyone can help. Just make a baby item, donate it in Marlowe's name to the charity of your choice, then email a picture of your item to the address here.
This bunting is going to The Preemie Project in memory of Marlowe.
