To honor my baby Devan Raye on what should have been the due date (July 17th) I got a tattoo. I found out my baby had passed away at 10 weeks and never was able to find out the gender so thats why I came up with the name Devan Raye. This is Devan sleeping in a bed of water lillies and purple larkspur. Both of those are July's birth flower. The meaning of the water lilly is purity and majesty. The larkspur means a strong bond of love and the purple larkspur means first love. Of course the miscarriage ribbon in the background. I know Devan Raye will always be in my heart but now people can ask about my tattoo and I can tell them Devan's story.

Thank you! The tattoo came out so much better than I could have hoped for and the name was in my head after waking up from a dream that I can't quite remember. I couldn't get the name out of my head so I just figured it was supposed to be.

 The tattoo is beautiful and the story behind the tattoo will be a great opportunity to keep Devan Raye's memory forever. So sorry for your loss.
