This morning a fellow “mom of an angel” broke my heart (in a good way) with a kind gesture, as time goes on people, are satisfied that you must “be better now” and “what happened” is mentioned less and less, which is a good thing in some ways. But every now and again it’s nice to have Logan’s life acknowledged in whatever small way 🙂
I found out about Shauna on one of the many baby loss forums I had visited just after Logan died, After losing her own angel, she started a garden of pinwheels (she lives in the US) honouring babies that have become angels, way too soon. She blogs about them and her life on http://www.pinwheelsfromheaven.blogspot.com/ I asked her to add Logan and she ended up going way beyond that, creating these beautiful memorial settings, taking pictures and sending them to me. She used his name important dates and so on to make keepsakes for me; any one who lost a newborn (or had a baby born sleeping) will tell you that because they leave so soon, keepsakes are few and far between and every little gesture means the world.
Today, a day before we reach the 4month mark, she mailed me again, with a light drawing she did and just a message to check in. . . it means the world to be “remembered” by someone who has her own painful loss to deal with. . .
