Written In The Stars

Just wanted to bring you attention to a wonderful site called Written In The Stars created by my friend Amanda. Amanda is a babylost momma who lost her daughter, Ireland, on March 14, 2009 at 14 weeks 4 days.

These are her own words:
Written in the Stars in something I started after losing my daughter at almost 15 weeks pregnant. I have nothing from her, no photos, no prints, nothing. I came across the site To Write Their Name In The Sand where they will make you an imagine with your child's name written in the sand on a beautiful beach on sunset. It made me wonder if there was something I could do and one summer nite I took a picture of the sky that I really like. Looking at the stars always makes me think of Ireland so 'writing' her name in the stars seemed like a fun thing to try. I loved it, and it was one more thing I could have to remind me of Ireland and I wanted to offer this to other grieving parents.

Here is the photo she created for my Carleigh. I absolutely love it since stars make me think of her. Thank you Amanda for doing this for us all!

That's pretty. I used to walk Connor around the block late at night when he couldn't sleep and sing to him. One of the songs I liked to sing was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
