Plant a tree in memory of your baby
Start a blog and connect with thousands of other hurting families who get the rollercoaster of emotions you are feeling. You can visit some existing blogs at http://www.babylossdirectory.blogspot.com/.
Email your emotions: Your 'purging' emails are always welcome. Whatever you are feeling in that moment just put it into the computer with a 'no need to reply - just venting' message in the subject line. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Write a letter to your delivering doctor / hospital: Share with them what you appreciated about your experience, what you wish had happened, and what you'd like to see put into place for other families who live this tragedy. Even if you never send it, processing your experience in this way is powerful. Hospitals often like to hear your feedback and want to know they are meeting your needs during such a tragic time, so if you do choose to send it you will be making a difference.
Call if you need us: Our crisis line is now available. 802-738-3411

The personalization pin-ons for the 2010 Memory Walk came today. When I opened them I felt a rush of excitment that signaled for me the walk is only 4 weeks away!!!!!
A big thanks to Laurie Birmingham, our Vice President of the Board for suggesting these this year. They are gorgeous and will make the perfect addition to our event shirts.
If you are coming to the walk we will have markers there for personalizing but please bring any other additions you would like with you: small pictures or stickers might fit the best.
Looking very forward to May 8th!!! Pre-Registration forms are arriving daily. Be sure to get yours in soon, either by mail or attached to an email, to ensure your FREE water bottle!
