We’ve been told that having something soft to snuggle and hold is comforting to parents when they can’t hold their babies. These lovies are the softest and sweetest we could find and we are privileged to honor their babies in this way. I love that they are lambs and we also include this scripture on each one along with a copy of Susan’s letter and a packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds that can be planted in memory of their babies.
We are also very blessed to have a line of cards designed by Christy from Paper Baristas, in honor of baby Eleanor Rose. A little girl lost at 35 weeks to another one of our GracefulWait moms. These are $4.99 each and Paper Baristas donates a portion of profits from the sale of these cards to support women through baby loss.
We also have Paper Baristas line of Bereavement Journals,
and Brady from Salt & Light has designed these precious Angel Wing ornaments to not only remember babies, but other precious loved ones.
Most of the time, Plume is my happy place. But the 3rd Wednesday of each month…or on the days when these lovies are ordered…and I hear the story of another sweet baby gone too soon…or it’s time to hand them off to a mom with her babies name embroidered across the front…I shed tears and give hugs and I’m honored to participate in what author Angie Smith, in her book I Will Carry You, calls “the sacred dance of grief and joy.”
You are not alone.
I hope you are all enjoying Spring!
See you soon,
