Nicholas' Space



A few months before Nicholas was to arrive my mom looked high and low for a frame to match our other two boys frames. The frames are meant for a picture of your child on one side and on the other side, the foot/handprints molded in clay. She finally did find one... and only a few short months later I was devastated that I wasn't going to be able to use it.
Then, one evening a couple of weeks after we lost our sweet angel, my beautiful husband brought out the frame. In it was two tiny footprints molded in clay... our Nicholas' footprints. My husband had asked the doctor to take the imprints for us and I had no idea. I was completely overwhelmed and filled with so much love for him at that moment. Now we have three matching frames for our three beautiful boys. I will never know where my husband got the strength to ask for this (or even think about asking for this), but I will forever be grateful that we are able to use our matching frame... and that our boys are together where they belong.

I came across you blog via Carly's. I wanted to say how sorry I am for you loss. I did not lose my baby..but my "big girl" she was 8. She died of a massive stroke just 3 mo after being diagnosed with hydrocephalus. I am so sorry once again. I know my angel is helping to care for your sweet angel. God Bless and keep you.
