Remembering Our Babies This Easter

Easter is upon us and instead of buying Avery a cute dress for church tomorrow, instead of making her first Easter, instead of coloring eggs with her, instead of doing the many things I should be doing, I've been missing her.

So many have written Avery's name for me, I felt it was time to repay the favor. The past few days, I've been honored to spent hours remembering the babies of those I've met along this journey.

This simple project has helped me tremendously over the last few days and at the same time, broken my heart just that much more. I've done over 50 names. 50! That number is just not acceptable.

Please take a moment to remember these little ones and their families as you celebrate with yours this weekend.


  1. Thank you for this, Crystal. I've been thinking about Avery a lot lately and miss so much getting to see the pictures and hear the stories!! You and Eddy have been in my prayers and will continue to be!! I wish I was closer to give you a great big hug!!! Love you!
