I have some of the greatest friends in the world :-) I went to get the mail today and there was a package from a friend of mine in Arizona. She had taken up donations from amongst my other friends from all over the country to send me, amongst other things, a bracelet commemorating the baby that we lost. The pictures truly don't do justice to how beautiful this bracelet is :-)
This charm has a rose on one side, and the word LIFE on the other, along with an amethyst colored crystal, symbolizing the month during which my child's life began...
This charm is a butterfly, with an aquamarine colored crystal, symbolizing the month that our baby passed away, and was able to fly away like a carefree, beautiful butterfly
And this charm simply says Wish, and has a topaz colored crystal, symbolizing the month that we had wished and hoped to hold our baby in our arms
And this charm has two little baby feet in a heart, symbolizing how my baby will always be in my heart... There is also a single teardrop, representing the millions of tears we have shed over the loss of our child.
And this charm symbolizes pregnancy and fertility, and has a moonstone (traditionally associated with promoting love and fertility), for when we are ready to try again.
