Infertility, Miscarriage, Our Infertility story

Gone, but not forgotten

September 3, 2011

I am thinking a lot about all of our five babies that didn’t make it.  I know that Erick and I are the only ones who do.  And, we feel robbed in so many ways.  We never got to meet them.  They didn’t even get names.

So, I decided to do something to memorialize their existence by having this photo made.


I know it seems stupid, but this photo is comforting to me and it feels good to do even the smallest thing in their memory.

This wonderful lady named Carly in Australia does these photos in memory of her son Christian.  You can have this done too at

    i don’t think it’s stupid at.all!! it’s so hard when they didn’t leave anything physical behind. i had a piece of art done for our triplets just to remind me that they did exist and to acknowledge their existence. i love the photo. i think it’s perfect.

  • Really, really beautiful idea. I hope that lovely photo provides you with solace and peace.
