After my m/c , I wanted to do something to remember the baby. I took the remains of my baby and planted a tree with them in my yard. It's not really a tree, as a blooming shrub that blooms in the winter. Well, I see a little bud coming in. If I get upset, I think about that little tree and it makes me so happy to see it growing. It's like (big cheesiness incoming) my baby is trying to tell me that everything is ok and that he/she is in heaven. I will try to post a picture when I find my camera.

Awww...I'd love to see a picture when you get a chance. And I don't think that's a cheesy thought at all. I'd like to think that those who leave us are still around somewhere.

Now, go look at that shrub...

That is beautiful!!

We planted a rose bush in memory of our babies. I had a D&C both times, so I never saw any part of my baby, but the rose bush is a constant reminder of them. I can't wait until it blooms!
