A Crater named Carleigh

I have a wonderful gift to share that I was very surprised to receive in the mail earlier this week. When it came in the mail it had no papers saying who did this for us but whoever you are-THANK YOU!

Edit: I now know who did this for us! Thank you, Danielle, for being so thoughtful! We really appreciate you doing this for us!

A crater on the moon has been named after Carleigh. The crater is located in the Lacus Somniorum or "Lake of Dreams" and it was made effective on March 28, 2010-Carleigh's 1st Birthday. This is such a special gift to have something like this named after her and we very much appreciate it!






Getting this in the mail reminded me that I totally forgot to name a star after Carleigh for her birthday. Oops. I knew I would forget something. Oh well, there's every other day of the year to do it and I know we'll do it at some point.

We did the naming a star thing for our friend when she lost her son. Then we got a necklace with the GPS coordinates on it, so she would always have it with her! I LOVE the moon thing too! How very special!

That is extremely special. What a thoughtful gift. I'm glad to know it means something to you. We've had 2 stars named for friends who lost their little babies - and it's nice to hear how special that can be to receive something like that!
