Welcome to the Wall Of Angels. This location is a site where all our lost children are remembered and loved.

I am a writer. I am currently writing about loss, grief, and hope. Every morning I look up at the black and white portrait of my Emma Grace, and take strenth, knowing her sprirt is always with me.

From this, the Angel Wall was born. The invitation extends to each and every one of you who has suffered the loss of a child to send a photo, name and date to be added to the wall.

Our babies were here, regardless of when they flew. They are our children and they deserve to be remembered.

Although I will post occasionally, the focus is the growth of Our Angel Wall as shown through a series of pictures.

As you scroll through our wall, I only ask that you take a moment to ingest each name and think of their parents. Readable names will be posted below the picture.

Thank you for your bravery.

Thank you for remembering Our Angels.

Remembering All Our Babies

It has been nearly one year since my office wall has been slowly transformed into a loving memorial by all your angel babies.
Last week I spent the better part of a day creating a 'remembrance date' card for each and every baby on the wall. I weaved them into the memory of all other families Share Southern Vermont supports creating this: a month by month remembrance reminder.
If your angel baby is on the wall, she or he or they are also in here.
Meaning, that you will receive a loving message on the anniversary of your angel's passing. It is just one more way that I feel we (all the mommies and daddies represented here) can support you on your grief road.
It has also been about a year that I have had this:

a gift from my mother. Beautiful, powerful, containing messages of all kinds about angels and how they live within our earthly lives. Like this one:

I've never quite known what to do with it, but today -- while meditating, an idea struck. We are starting anew, every year another rotation of days completes and we are left to begin, yet again, without our baby.
Each time I send a 'birthday' card, I'll also post an 'angel message'. If it is meant to speak to you -- it will.
Thinking of each of you as your season of memory arrives.

Angel Wall Update - Jan. 1010

It has been a while since this site has been updated. Not surprisingly, the break began directly after I went back to work.
The tranistion has been less than smooth, and I apologize to anyone who has felt less than wholy supported. Please know you and your children are never far from my mind.
Without further ado... sit with these gorgeous girls for a moment.
Madicken - born /died August 2nd, 2009

Jenna Belle - born May 5th ~ died May 18th, 2009

Grace Isabelle - died July 31st ~ born August 1st, 2009

As always, if you have messages for the parents of these angel babies, feel free to leave them in the comments.

If you are the parent of an Angel Wall baby and would like to connect with another parent, please email me.

Until the next update... we share our grief, we share our hopes, we will never stop loving.

Nearly To The Ceiling

The Angel Wall, that is. It nearly touches my office ceiling. I both love and hate to see it grow, much as I simultaneously celebrate and cringe when our support group gets bigger every month.

I love bringing a sense of connectedness to all the babylost parents out there. I hate that babies keep dying.

With this post, you will notice a new opportunity on the sidebar. Our Memory Bands are here. They are the kick off fundraiser for Share Southern Vermont. They say SHARE (our logo) Forever In Our Hearts.

They are a perfect token for yourself, your families and friends who want to remember and keep your babies close without always having to put it into words. For all those who remember - Please pass the word and the link.

And now, October's Angel Wall.

Angel Wall - Straight to the Heart

As I wrote to the parents of the gorgeous babies I'm posting today, I find that by waiting until I have four or more babies to add to the wall, each group takes on a collective life of their own. I am extremely conscious of that with these five beautiful souls, not only because I am in the midst of my grief season, but for the sheer beauty of each babe and their story.

~With Love - We Remember~

The wall has alot of spirits on it. Each name was read at Share Southern Vermont's first annual Walk for Hope and Remembrance. (click over to see the slideshow)You can actually hear the different emotion inflected through my voice when I spoke the name of babies I know so well through their parents.

But the most heartbreaking word I had to speak that day was 'brothers' or 'sisters' or 'siblings'. The double, triple, or quadrouple loss they represented for those parents nearly broke me all over.

Today, our wall is updated with a set of gorgeous twin boys and a set of born-too-soon quads. Please take an extra minute so these parents know you remember all their children.

We Remember...
