Remembrance Quilt

Rememberance Quilt - A gift to those mourning miscarriage, still birth, & child loss. A way to remember those babies & a way to hold them when you are missing them. A great gift for those who are dealing with a loss to show them that you care.
I’m not here today with pretty styled photos or home decor, but I’m here to share with you today a kind gesture & a lovely gift I received from good samaritans in remembrance of our 6 angel babies. If you have read any of our journey you know that I am a mom to 6 precious babies that are in heaven & that I am one of those 1 in 4 women that has PCOS. I am also one of those women who that doesn’t dwell on my miscarriages. Not that it is bad to dwell, but I’m just being honest with you about how I feel because I always want to be honest about our journey. I am so occupied with our life & loving the moment that I do not have days where I sit around the house depressed that our babies are in heaven. I know that this is God’s plan, I know that God has great plans for our life right now & in the future, I know that I have nothing to worry about, & I know that God is in control. I love this season of our lives right now. Just the two of us working on our dreams & really enjoying these days of just us two because we know they are numbered. Sometimes I feel like the minority on this journey a. because of how many losses we have had & b. because of the way I feel about my losses & how I handle them. I get scared to share on here how I feel because I don’t want anyone to mistake my peace & understanding about our losses for not caring about our babies, but I also think it’s nice to see how others deal with similar journeys. I have peace, I have understanding, I have a true love for our life right now, & a deep thankfulness for this journey God has given us, but as a human I have moments where I miss those babies that I held in me for a short time.

When I was at the Farmgirl Flea the other day I was running around like a crazy person the whole day  [I’ll be blogging more about the flea soon] & in the middle of the day a lovely friend who I went to school [she has a shop (here)] with came up to me with a gift bag. I had no idea what was inside, but was surprised & she told me to open it when I got home. When I finally got to open the gift I saw a lovely quilt & was thinking that was what it was.. but it was so much more.

The quilt inside the gift bag was made by her & another friend. & it wasn’t just any quilt, it was a remembrance quilt to remember our angel babies with. The quilt is to keep in any spot that I wish & to pull out whenever I have a moment that I want to hold our babies I can hold the quilt & remember them. I can hold the quilt & remember that God is holding our babies, remember that they are happy, I can remember that I am a mom to 6 beautiful children, I can remember the happy moments I had while they were here on earth, I can remember the strength I have gained from loss, I can remember that God is in control, I can remember that there are amazing people with us on this journey, I can remember that one day I will be able to hold those babies of mine that we loss too soon.

This was such a thoughtful gift. It told me that people are thinking of us on our journey. People care. Not everyone knows what to say. I have had 6 losses & I still do not know what to say to people who experience any kind of loss, but this gesture needed no words. This gift said it all. The quilt told me that people cared about our journey, they cared about my healing, they cared about our loss, & most of all they cared about my hurting momma heart that longed to hold those babies of mine.

This is such a kind gesture & I will never forget it. This quilt will be with me on my entire journey through loss, motherhood, & beyond. I wanted to share this because it was so kind & also as an idea for those of you who do not know what to get those in your life who are dealing with miscarriage, still birth, or infant loss. I know it’s so hard to know what to do in these situations, but this beautiful quilt really just showed so much more than words could ever say & I’m forever grateful for kind souls. Thank you guys for stopping by my blog today, it means so much to me. & thank you for those who are on this journey with us we are so grateful for the kind words, prayers, & just the thoughts. You are all amazing. xx

  1. Such a beautiful gesture. I know the complicated feelings you’ve described. Sometimes it causes more anxiety trying to explain it to others. But your openness I’m sure has also helped many other women trough their feelings as well, especially in a society that has such a difficult time talking about pregnancy loss. It’s nice to know that my 3 Angels are in good company in heaven ❤️ And you’ll be in my prayers through your journey!

  2. I am right there with you. I had a miscarriage 3 years ago very early on in my pregnancy and within a month after the miscarriage, I was pregnant with my daughter. There was really no time to dwell on our loss and sometimes I feel like I just don’t want to talk about it at all because I’m not sure how people will take our feelings on the whole thing. It can be a hard situation to be in for many reasons, but oh doesn’t it make it so much sweeter to be a follower of Christ and know where those sweet babies are?

  3. Thank you for sharing your stories about your babies.
    I just lost my first baby on Monday at 17 weeks, and am finding it hard to carry on.
    My only hope is that our baby is safe with God and that I will meet him or her one day.
    I pray that God will bless you and your husband as you journey through this life together.

    • Jenn, my heart goes out to you and I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Setting an alarm on my phone now to remember you by.

  4. Wow – that is so kind and the quilt is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I remember back when I first found your blog and I read your post on your miscarriage journey. It seemed so bold to share such details.. Awhile later.. and I’ve had 2 miscarriages. It’s been a journey and I have often thought of your post and am glad that you wrote about it… Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Right here is the perfect website for anyone who would like to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need
    toHaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject
    which has been discussed for decades. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  6. We will work with you to create your constructing, whether or not you might
    be starting with a blank slate, or are already working with an architect or designer.

  7. I pay a quick visit daily a few web sites and sites to read articles, but this web site offers feature based
    articles.
