Those memory boxes are precious! I think that is a great way to grieve the loss of your angels. It is also amazing how something like that can bring one so much comfort.

I don't know if you have introduced yourself in the main forum but would love to invite you over! I am extremely sorry for your 2 losses!

They did help me cope with the loss although I felt like I was stuck in a bad nightmare with no exit doors.

I might drop by the main forum and say hello.

Thanks for responding to my post.

You are quite welcome! I'm glad you decided to share it w/ complete strangers. It takes guts to finally come into this board since it is no where anyone wants to be.

The hospital I had Kairi at had given us a beautiful memory box to keep with us. I included her blankie from when she was first born, a small crocheted outfit and her small purple teddy bear that they took her pictures with. I had added her photos they had taken of her with us, our hospital bracelets, the little ruler they measured her with and all her ultrasound pictures.

Her memory box, along with her tiny urn sit on my nightside. I kiss her good-night before going to sleep each nite.

It makes me sad that she's not here, but I know she is watching over me.
