I wear a locket around my neck with my daughters name and birth date. My mother bought me a new locket with both my daughter and son on it. I am going to get their angel pictures sized down to fit in it.

I sometimes wear a locket with Ethan's footprints in it, and I have a memorial tattoo for him on my foot that goes where I go. I love my tattoo.

Laurie, the lockets sound so beautiful. If you feel up to sharing I would love to see a photo of them sometime x

Rebecca, I'd like to see a pic of your tattoo as well. What made you choose to have it on your foot especially? x

I have tattoos to mark two of my miscarriages. I also have two rings to remember two of my m/cs but the stone dropped out of one a few months ago and I am not sure I'll be able to replace it. I felt so gutted when I realised I'd lost the stone.

I will post a photo when I get the new locket (it is still at the engravers). I would love to see pictures of your tattoos. I've been considering getting one, too.
I plan to get a family ring. I had planned on waiting until I was done having children, but with the way things are going, who knows what is going to happen on that front. Connor was born in October, Eva was born in June, and Declan was born in July, so none of them share a stone. I can't wait to have the ring because it is like having them all with me all of the time.

Here's my tattoo right after I got it (pardon my freckled feet):



I chose my foot because my other tattoos are on my back and I never see them, I wanted to see this one every day

I just bought a necklace for each baby yesterday. On the front, it has there initial in a 'french rose pattern'. On the back it has their renaissance Zodiac sign.

Rebecca, your tattoo is beautiful. I absolutely love the colours, the blue stands out so well.

Laurie, the ring you have planned sounds absolutely beautiful and so meaningful. I had thought about something similar, except as a bracelet.

Lauradeeann, I think having a photo of your mum on your phone background is a lovely idea. (((((hugs))))))

Augie, that's a really beautiful idea. I would love to see some photos

This is my main memorial tattoo:

I went and got a tattoo the day before Grace's funeral. It is angel wings with Gracie's name underneath; i told the tattooist over the phone what I was looking for and he had it drawn up before I got there. It was bigger than what I wanted, but I saw it and knew I had to have it. It is between my shoulder blades, kind of like my guardian angel looking over me.

I wear a small 10k gold ruby birthstone ring on my right hand; Grace was born on July 4th.
I also wear an angel chain that my gran bought to be put on Gracie before her funeral. Because Gracie was already wearing a gold crucifix, my gran told me to wear it and never take it off.

I don't carry anything around specifically, but after we are finished having children I will be getting a family tattoo with a set of angel wings in the middle for my angel baby.
