Staci told me of a fellow Trisomy 13 mom who had made a necklace to remember her baby:
My friend Sarah says:
Here is my necklace for Kash McKinley. The crystal K & M charms are for his initials. I have a crystal star charm just because he is my star. I can't help but wonder what he's doing when I look up at the stars. I also have the heart with angel wings because he has my heart & he's my angel. Then I have the heart charm with the blue baby boy foot prints. I picked the ball station chain & the medium crystal locket, & then added the angel wing dangle.
Kash was born April 11, 2011, & passed away April 19, 2011, from complications of severe Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn.
My friend Kelley (who lost Collin, then her triplet boys) says:
I have a letter C for all my boys and the new owl that has the blue rhinestones. Owls became my sign for Collin. I was contacted after I lost Collin by a friend I hardly ever see. I found out talking to her that she had also lost a baby almost full term and a husband all within a year of each other. I never knew any of this and my heart just broke. She had contacted me because she felt so bad that we lost Collin and wanted to gift me an Origami Owl! I had never heard of them until then. Well, that was my first sign from Collin. After that every time I went to Pier 1 that card with the big owl on it and the 3 lil ones in the nest would be staring at me every night. Then every time I turned around a new owl would come in so I just knew that had to be my wink from Collin.
My Origami Owl locket was given to me just recently by two friends of mine. They got the birthstone charm for each of my sons including my stepson along with a set of angel wings, a cross, and a Forever Family charm. The background inside the pendant says Mama.
