Name photos

Thank you to everyone who has told me that you love the photos I took of your babies' names. I am so happy that you like them! I took (most of) them last weekend when we were visiting our families in Findlay, OH. I went to Riverside park and spent several hours remembering and capturing a moment for each of your babies. There are several photos I took that I did not take at the park. I was not able to get all of them done while I was there as I had to get back to visiting Anthony's grandpa.

I wanted to share with you all the place that I took (most of) these pictures. I just thought you'd like to see it.



It was a pleasure to be able to take those photos for each of you. In all, I had 126 final photos (although I took much more to get the best pic!). I'm going to guess around 150 names were written since some photos contained more than 1 name. Most of them were on leaves, several were on rocks, and a couple written in pebbles. Oh, and one on a tree. I'm sorry if I missed you. If you would like me to take a picture for you please email me at caring4carleigh@yahoo.com.

I did thank you in email too. I really appreciate that you thought about Akul. What a wonderful gesture and so many angel babies were remembered with love.

Holly--Thank you SO much for the picture. You are so incredible to do that and think of all our babies. To see Chase's name and know it is HIS name is so comforting. Thank you so much for thinking of him.
Love,

I got these in my email today and it was such a surprise... Thank you so much. I have been having a tring week, and knowing that someone else was thinking of our sweet babies lifted my spirits. Thank you so much for helping me create a memory. I am going to add these pictures to my post titled "Their Beautiful Names", and I would like to send you a special gift for helping us create another memory of our children. Please send me your mailing address in an email.
Thank you again Holly, the pictures took my breath away.

Thank you so much for the picture. It is beautiful and unexpected. I was away from my computer for two days, so I could see it on my cell, and teared up. Thank you for thinking of my girl.

This place is so...amazing. Its beautiful, tranquil; and just simply astonishing. I only wish I could visit such a place; but this desert has nothing as magnificent as that terrific looking place, Holly. Those are beautiful photographs you have taken; and I know I've already thanked you too..But thank you so so much for being one of the only ones besides myself who thinks of my beautiful little boy. I often feel as if he is so forgotten, not only dead; but not remembered. I so great aooreciate this gesture more than anything you may ever even imagine. When I opened my email, I never expected the amazing photo you sent to me to be eclosed; I was completely taken back, and breathless. (a feeling that is hard to come by) I cannot beleive how estatic I was, and my husband knew something was up from just looking at the smile on my face... I smiled; bright..I was so proud; and he smiled at this photo too, and we loved it, and we set as our desktops backgroun so it could take our breath away everyday many times throughtout the day. I love it so much Holly; it also helped the hubby and I talk a little about our precious son. *GREAT thing happening right there* Thanks for thinking of Jayden, again.

We are so blessed by your love of the families that have shared in the loss of their babies. Your gift was one of the most beautiful, thoughtful things someone has ever done for us since we lost our baby 19 years ago.
Many tears of love and thankfulness returned to you Holly.
