It's coming together! Yay! I've purchased the (15)elephants(they should be here in a few days), I've bought some journals, note cards for the letter and some pens (the cashier was like wow 5 journals you must have alot to write about LOL), now I have to get the resource information and the elephant saying typed up and printed. Oh, and I need some type of bag to put them in.... I'm only donating 5 this time....for 2 reasons....one I need more funds LOL and two I want to make sure that the drs office is a good home for them....I may end up donating the rest to the hospital....we shall see. I hope that this works out as beautifully as I plan...and if it does I think I'm going to ask my church and my grandmother's church if they are interested in donating to the cause. I know that (unfortunately) 1in4 pregnancies end in miscarriage....and donating 15 elephants isn't even putting a dent into it.
I'm so excited to do this. It's a great way to put my energy into something positive! I know that I can't mope around for the rest of my life...... by doing this I'm remembering Ian and hopefully helping someone else. I refuse to let Ian's short life be forgotten! And if I can't hold him and show him how much I love him I will show others love and kindness. I pray that other mommies will feel less alone knowing that there are others out there. I think the healing process is finally getting somewhere! I still miss him everyday but I don't feel like I'm drowning anymore. I'm still going to cry but I'm learning to handle it.
