How do you remember your angels?  Do you have any memorials or keepsakes? Do you do something every year to remember them?

I'm only 8 days into this, so things may change of course...but our plans are to celebrate Avery's Birthday every year, June 9th.  Maybe have some cake, and just remember him, he deserves it, and I want the kids to remember him and be able to talk about him.  We do plan on putting a shadow box together, with the few momentos we have.  I love this question btw, I'm curious to hear the things you ladies do :)

I just say a little prayer on the loss date and due date.  My little one would be celebrating his/her 1st birthday on July 23rd.  :(

What's interesting is that I find myself remembering my angel more during the time of year when we lost him (before Christmas) and about the time we conceived him versus the time of his EDD. I think that's because I conceived my 3.5 year old DS soon after my loss and so I tend to focus on the joy of having a live birth rather than the sorrow of the due date that never came.

I have done different things in memorium. However, what I do regularly still is focus on my angel and talk to him. I truly, truly feel he is a guardian for our family and watches over his little siblings with great love and care. :-)

There really isn't a day or two in a row that I forget, and my son would be 23 now. We named him, and my mother, that yrs Mother's Day, brought me a sapling wheeping cherry tree, to help do my weeping with me. To this day in our front yard it blossoms and rains petals like tears every June.

I lost mine early so there isn't a grave. I put flowers on my grandparent's grave, right between them (they are buried together with one headstone) because I know they have my little one now. My mom has an angel figure and I am going to get a piece of jewelry with the august birthstone.  Not sure yet what I will do on the due date yet.

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about my angel baby.  But I did get a key chain of the infant loss/miscarriage ribbon

I think about my baby everyday. My dh did paint a beautiful picture of our angel baby for me that is hanging on our wall.
