Lily's memory boxes

I've been working on the boxes for Lily's birthday for the last couple of weeks and I'm almost done! I'm compiling the list of books on grieving and I have to find the perfect words for the beautiful cards that I bought for the boxes. The cards were designed by Franchesca and they deserve a post all their own which I will be doing in the next day or so!

But, here are the boxes so far! :)

A teddy bear to cuddle, a blanket to wrap around the baby and take home with them, a journal to write down all the emotions that will come up in the hours, days, weeks, months following the baby's passing, a disposable camera, a picture frame and a hand (or foot) mold.

I'm going to decorate the outside of the box more about right now I have pink and blue baby hands and feet stickers.

They look great! I got a fabric folder that was tied with a ribon, it's really quite neat, and I've often wondered who made it, and if they had lost a baby as well.... Such a beautiful tribute to Lily! Thanks for all of your comments over the past few weeks... it's been so nice to have some online support!

as a mother who has lost twins previously and just found out that she will again deliver one baby instead of two i can say that these are so great! We received a bear from our first loss and it was so comforting. What an incredible thing that you are doing. I just had to delurk finally and tell you what a special thing it is that you are doing.
