Anna's headstone

Seeing Anna's headstone for the first time was a little bittersweet. I think it is gorgeous and am grateful for the help we received in purchasing it. I was also grateful to be able to cuddle our little Peter while I silently cried and missed our Anna.



I'm so happy that it's complete, yet I feel sadness that there is no more to be done. Like every bit of Anna has passed.

Your sister directed me here. She left a comment on my blog. I just lost my son, Benjamin, at 23 weeks and writing about it has helped me so much. Thank you for leaving this beautiful memorial of your journey with sweet Anna. I too feel that I have been given so many gifts in this experience, as heartbreaking as it is.
Wishing you continued joy and love.
