One way I've heard families honor and remember babies they lost through miscarriage is by planting a tree. We live in a rental house so I did not even consider doing this, but my parents surprised me one day by sending me an email saying they had purchased a tree in honor of our angel. This really touched me and made me feel our angel has a very special place as a grandchild as well. It was a tree that blooms in winter (the season we had the miscarriage where my parents live) and they chose a special place they could see out of the kitchen window.
Another friend sent me a message one day saying she had made a little heart in memory of our angel... and had put it alongside a heart a friend made her when she miscarried a few months before. She sent this picture with the message as well as other words of encouragement and love. This touched my heart deeply.
This month I also posted about working through miscarriage using the Baha'i Writings for comfort on the Enable Me To Grow and Baha'i Teachings websites:
- This post included a prayer song download to "Refresh and Gladden My Spirit"
- This was the first in a series about my experience of miscarrying
- This was the second post in that series
