For Your Tears

Friday, July 10, 2009

Peter brought in the mail last night and there was a mailing for me. Opening it, I was blown away by the beautiful gift that arrived. Deborah Pucci, from For Your Tears, sent a beautiful handkerchief with the words "For Your Tears" embroidered in the center. Deborah began this outreach to mothers who have lost a child, and it is such a meaningful and unexpected jesture. I am so very touched.


If you would like to make a donation in memory of your baby or babies so that this beautiful outreach can continue, or if you would like to ask Deborah to make a handkerchief for you, please stop by her blog for more information.

Michele you are so very welcome and thank you for putting the link to my blog. I don't feel worthy of the beautiful words I have been reading from the women who have received these handkerchiefs. You are the ones who deserve to be honored for being so brave and moving forward each day with the emptiness in your hearts. I admire you.

I am a Mom to a son that would be 28 now, I never held him and the tears have been gone for a long time, replaced by the fact I am older and closer to meeting him. I wonder if he will be grown, or a perfect baby forever to hold and back then there wasn't internet support for me. My twins were lost 2 or so years behind Christopher. I had a true IC, My sister was given a cerclage and I remember how I resented the system. I wasn't rich or even stable back then which is why I say they just let me miscarry. Though I am so lucky my nephew is a grown man now, I just wish his cousins were here. Your the only blog I run to each day and I love watching the counter go down showing they are nearer to here. I love that you love them today, I have never heard of someone doing pregnancy the way you are and we have started living life to the fullest each day as your words ring through my mind. as none of us really know what tomorrow brings. Thank you for sharing your story.

That's beautiful Michele! And thanks so much for the u/s info. I wish our doctor had talked more about it with us, but he seemed to feel their lawyers would be very unhappy with him if he did. ugh. The lawyers there won't even let us tape the ultrasound for legal concerns. :(
