The Christmas cards have started coming in and this year I look forward to it. I like getting fun mail. So I opened one card not even realizing the return address is from the hospital were Scott was born. It had a card with a candle on the front that reads, "For a while your child was in our care. For always, we'll remember." Inside is says how on Sunday evening a candle will be lit in the unit were he received care . How that touched my heart, to know he is still remembered especially by those who took care of him. As much as I hate to say it, the hospital was his home, it's the only place he knew.
I did not know that the second sunday of December is National Children's memorial day. so I will be lighting a candle that evening for my little guy.
We took C and Elvis to see Santa at the mall. Yes, we took our dog to the mall we are those people! .;p But we were allowed, we found out that on Monday nights they do dog photos with Santa. So here is the picture of my little guy and his newest pal with Santa.
The pic is ADORABLE! Your friends and family will love this too:) I am so happy that you received such a card from the hospital that looked after your angel. Wow! I had no idea that there was a National Children's Memorial Day. I will be lighting a candle for mine and for so many other angels and thinking of their families.
How thoughtful of the hospital to send card to you in honor of Scott. I know that must mean so much to you.
LOVE the pic of C and E with Santa!! :) Good for you for bringing Elvis (love the name, by the way)!!!
Awe I love that the hospital sent you the card, how special. I'm sure that many nurses and drs remember Scott. I also love the photo of C, Elvis, and Santa. Thank you for letting us know about National Children's Memorial Day.
What an incredibly sweet gesture from the hospital. It is amazing to know that there are still people who care and who remember your sweet boy.
I love the picture. It made me smile. If my dog didn't weigh 100lbs I'd be one of "those people" too. :)
Thanks for bring National Children's Memorial day to my attention. I will be lighting a candle as well.
