Ways to Remember

Since Faith is not here with me, I have tried to find as many items to use as remembrances of her.  I am so honored to have been able to get her inked hand prints and foot prints at the hospital.  The picture on the left is a heart shaped pendant that I had made by My Forever Child .  It turned out better than I could have imagined.  I also had a bracelet made from the same place (center).  The picture on the right is a signet ring with Forget Me Not flowers on the sides that I ordered from deSignet International .  
While I am very aware that my daughter is in Heaven, I also know that I need to have mementos that constantly remind me of her.  She is and will always be my precious Faith Melody.  
I have experienced a tremendous amount of grief and pain from losing my baby girl.  I know that I will forever collect jewelry with her name now.  Somehow wearing this kind of jewelry makes me think of her and feel as though she is closer to me in some way.  
I believe that everyone grieves in different ways.  For me, I know that having ways to remember my daughter around me has been a great help to me.  
What has been a help to you as you have gone through situations where you have needed to grieve?

  1. I think that is wonderful Brooke! There are so many ways we can remember our loved ones. I really enjoy jewelry anyway, so it is a great expression of Faith to me to wear something that reminds me of her.

  2. I love the jewellery hun!
    Just over a month after having Aria a friend and her Aunty gave me a necklace with Aria and Xaviers names engraved on it for my birthday, I love how thoughtful they were. Acknowledging what I wanted most for my birthday was amazing.
    Aria's god mother had also given me the wishing well she decorated that is the profile pic I have on the fb page for them.

  3. Thanks. Oh, that is wonderful that your Aunt did that for you, as well as Aria's god mother. There are really some loving people that reach out to us. Thank God for them and for each other! Hugs!
