October 15th Prayer Flag

I ordered Cale's beautiful sunset picture from a lovely woman in Australia named Carly Marie Dudley who lost her only son to stillbirth several years ago. In addition to the numerous things she does for the baby loss community (all over the world mind you) she welcomed anyone to send a Prayer Flag for a beach ceremony  they are holding this year in recognition of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness.

In addition to making a flag for Cale I made one for Johnathan Hope, the first son of some of our friends who was stillborn three months to the day after Cale. It really was peaceful and comforting making these, and I'm sure it was incredible powerful for Carly Marie to be sent over 300 flags from all over the world - flags made with tender love in memory of our children.

Thinking of all you amazing families who are missing your child(ren) today. Tomorrow. Always.
