A Memory Box May Be A Way To Remember Your BabyIn honor of memorial day, I wanted to do a post on how to remember your baby or babies lost through misarriage.
Here is site that suggests other ways to honor your baby including a memory box. Read more:
One thing that is very helpful is making a memory box for your baby.
You may have many things to go inside: pictures from the birth, a hospital ID bracelet, the outfit your baby wore, the blanket he/she was wrapped in, and the many mementos from your pregnancy. You may have only a few: a positive pregnancy test, a journal tracing your attempts to get pregnant and hearing the good news, sympathy cards, dried flowers from sympathy bouquets, or a sonogram printout or videotape. You may have nothing yet.

Things to add to your memory box, even if it was years ago:
A letter to your baby describing your love
A dried leaf or branch from a tree you planted in your baby's honor
An outfit or stuffed animal you bought especially to remind you of him/her
A small journal detailing your feelings
Printouts of messages from women you talk to on the Internet about your baby (I did this!)
A birth or name certificate that you make with scrapbooking supplies or on a computer
A poem you read that reminded you of the baby
