Letters To Heaven

Another tip that I posted last week was to send an email to Heaven. Here is another way that you can honor your baby online.

Letters to Heaven
Did you ever feel the need to express your grief and sadness over losing your baby? Did the anniversary of your baby’s death come and go and you wanted to do something to remember him or her by? Maybe you just want to let your baby know that you miss him or her. Our ‘Letter to Heaven’ section is the place to write down your thoughts, express your grief, or just a place to say ‘Hello sweetheart, I miss you.’ Each letter will remain on file, amongst hundreds of other letters from grieving parents. Each is as unique as the baby who was forever lost.

While I was looking through other people’s letters to their babies, one thing that touched my in my heart was how many people write to their babies more than once. Sharing news with them and just checking in. I love this concept as I think/talk to my dad often now that he has died. More so than when he was alive. Just thinking about your loved one is so much simpler than picking up the phone. He is so much more accessible now.

There are letters from moms, dads, siblings. Letters from people who have had the loss for over 20 years and also letters from parents whose loss is only one month old. Sometimes they share websites and poems. With everyone writing how much they miss their loved ones and how that they think of them every day.
All of the letters are worth reading and have a familiar tone to them. Recognizable as someone who has had a loss.

    What a beautiful idea! I have written a letter to my little Keelan Lark, also had a webpage built in his honor, and I have a little memory box for him (it includes things like my positive pregnancy test, cards of sympathy I got when I lost him, a beautiful little pin with his name on it, among other things)
    I found all of these things really helped with my healing process and to get me to the place I am today.
