Do you have any goals for 2009? Whether things you want to do in memory of your angel children or something in general?
One thing I plan to do eventually this year is set up an organization for helping bereaved parents buy headstones that they wouldn't be able to afford usually. They are just sooooo expensive. I am not sure of the details yet, but I'm thinking of having an application process.
The average upright stone ranges from $1000-4000. Flat stones in granite range from $900-2000 and bronze are even more pricey. Then there is the fact you can have them carved different ways, add vases. It's just cray expensive. And a lot of times this is on TOP of crazy crazy funeral expenses.
I do know one of my requirements will be that it has to be at least 6 months but preferably a year since your loss to request help. I've met about 8 other mothers who got one sooo soon and regret it. It gives people a time to put REAL thought into it. Does that make sense?
Hmmm, goals for '09?
-Probably try to lose some weight / get more fit.
-Hopefully get a BFP when we TTC again.
-Sue the cr@p out of my old job for firing me illegally and getting a HUGE settlement Ca-CHING $$$$$
-Try to get my mental health and emotions back in order.
