to hold her one more time..

I've had moments that I regretted putting Ella's wubby in with her when she was buried. She was attached to this bunny and always snuggled it and kissed it..I have had moments where I wished we would have kept it, like she snuggled with it, so if we held it, it would be like we were holding her.. what I wouldn't give to hold her one more time..one more smell, one more touch of her soft sweet skin..

About a month ago, our local news ran a clip about Tynsey's miracle bears..I instantly got online and decided we needed one..Here is the kicker though, it meant we had to find something of sentiment, but something that could be cut up and used for the bear..Gag..maybe it was a bad idea..I can't do this..they are precious to us..how can I let them go? But I am not letting them go, this way they will be with us forever right? so here are the bears, We ordered one and my MIL ordered one. I have two more to send off for my mom and Jays granny.. but they were done so fast and I am so glad we decided to do them..to hold tight to when we are missing her too much...the pics were taken with my phone, sorry about the quality..

this one is mine, notice the arms? I blogged about this onsie here..the other is pj's and the feet and ears are a bib we took..

this is Nancy's..I loved the little flowered pajamas on her..she wore them all of the time..the other was  a little romper we had..
I am glad we did it, they turned out beautifully.. right now it sits in her room..if/when we get a placement, (see the journey to foster/adoption tab for updates) we'll put it in ours so it doesn't get torn up..

They are so adorable. I know you'll feel some peace holding your angels things so tight. I just stumbled upon this blog recently, but have been returning often; and I am a bereaved mother myself.

I know it must have been so hard to have the things you loved on her cut up into the bears, but they are so lovely, and now you can squeeze them and hold them and think of her!

Those bears are so, so beautiful. I can imagine it was excruciating to have to give up something of hers, but you got it back in such a beautiful way!

What wonderful, precious snugglies. I can only imagine how hard it may have been to choose what to send. They are beautiful.

These bears are just so sweet and they turned out sooo good!! They remind me of Kelly's comfort bears.
