"Foto" Friday is a play on phrase for Photo Friday. I take a million pictures each week, well maybe not a million...... but A LOT! So I thought it would be nice to share my favorite picture from the week. Each Friday, I will post one picture and each "Foto" will include a small caption. Some pictures will be related to breastfeeding, while others will not. I hope you enjoy "Foto Friday!" Do you like "Foto" Friday? Well come on over to our facebook page and our Facebook Group "Mummies Nummies Group" and join in! I love seeing your "Fotos."
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. A month that I hold close to my heart as I have shared our story of pregnancy losses a few times.
You cannot tell by looking at us, but we are a family of 7. Three members of our family can not be seen, but they are constantly felt.
This month I decided to ask my daughters to help light our three candles. This was a first for me, as I have always done this alone. But I wanted to include our girls and explain to them why Mummie does it every year.
To share the memories of who are not here.
To let our girls know how special they are to have three angels on their side.
Here is the very first picture of me with ALL of my babies... A photo I will forever cherish.
We have three candles to help light our way, three bright lights to help us see the path before us.
And three flames to help warm our hands when they feel the coldness of being empty.
Our three bright lights.
Our three angels.
Our three beacons on a dark night.
May all the babies who have been lost, feel the love their Mummies and Daddies have for them. May they ALL see the Wave of Light in their memory. May they ALL hear as we whisper their names into the wind and know they are still loved and forever remembered. May our tears wash away the pain and our hearts beat in their memory.
May they look down upon us and feel the love our arms could not offer.
