Christmas 2012

Today is Christmas Eve. It also marks 8 months since my baby girl passed away. I am not really in the Christmas spirit this year and barely did anything Christmas related. I didn't set up a tree or any decorations. I feel bad not getting Evelynn a stocking or an ornament for the tree, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I don't know how I managed to do it last year for Liam. I suppose its because I was pregnant with Evelynn. Today Dereck and I spent the day baking and tomorrow we are going to some friends house for dinner. Last weekend we went to my work Christmas party and surprisingly had a lot of fun. I also bought some presents for the kids on the Salvation Army tree. You will never guess the names I picked. They couldn't have been more perfect. 
You see that! Eve Lynn (Evelynn) and Will Max (William Maximilian)


Merry Christmas Liam and Evelynn,
I love you and miss you always my sweet babies.



Also, I want to thank all of you that have been there for me these past couple years, especially the ones who have since gone on to have their rainbows and still keep in touch. Your friendship and support means the world to me. Thank you for remembering my babies. I just hope you all know that even though I rarely comment on any of your blog posts, I still read them and think of all of your babies often. So today and always as I remember my sweet babies Liam and Evelynn I am remembering your sweet babes as well.

  3. Merry Christmas to you guys. The photos are so beautiful. How does the Salvation Army tree work? Do you know the names of the children you pick, or is it a surprise?

  7. You are always loved and supported. Always. Your son and daughter are not forgotten to us, no matter what. I know I probably speak for most of us BLMs in saying we wish things were different. Babies here or far, none of us will ever celebrate like we thought we would've years before we became parents.

    Love to you.

  9. Yup, you're children are adored and missed by so many. If I'm being honest, I think of them at least once each day. At least.

    I love that you were able to select those names and honour your babies by giving Christmas to children who would certainly not have had much on Xmas morning.

    Merry Christmas to you and I hope 2013 brings so much for you and your family. xox

  13. I rarely comment either, but I just wanted to say I love the gorgeous sand photos for your precious babies. Also, don't feel guilty not buying an ornament - you are doing the best you can and sometimes it's all just too much to deal with in such a "tangible" way as buying something. I totally get that. Hugs to you.

  14. Hi Becky,
    Like you, I read often but seldom post. But, I think of you and sweet Liam and little Evelynn so very often. You are all in my thoughts and will never be forgotten. I put you in (my version of) prayers for 2013 and hope that you find a sweet baby in your arms this year with your gestational carrier.

    All the best to you,
    Brooke
