About Me

My photo

I am a lot of things, wife, sister, friend, and aunt but most of all I am a grieving mother of a lost baby girl taken too soon.  This blog is my way of venting and surviving.  I'm trying to find my way back to funny, sarcastic, and happy but it's quite a journey.

Edgartown childrens memorial light house

The Museum, as steward of the Edgartown Lighthouse, has created the Children's Memorial to memorialize children who have died. It is believed to be the only one of its kind available for children of all ages everywhere.

Families can have their child's name carved into  cobblestone and placed permanently into the foundation of the lighthouse. The blocks are laid by the shoreline in a pattern echoing the rhythm of the waves, marked by compass points. It is the Museum's hope that the child's name will be seen in the context of eternity.

We chose this as Lydia's final resting place.  We scattered her ashes peacefully in the water, just the two of us.  We sat on the beach and talked about how we loved her and how we would carry on her memory.  This, was a good day! In late spring next year Lydia's brick will be placed and we will return to visit our baby girl. 

 Take a look at our pics below.
