Miah's One Year Birthday

Miah would have been one year old this last weekend.  She is a very real part of our family, and as such, we celebrated her birthday.  Many of you have sent cards and presents and we thank you for that!  The five days she spent with us will always be cherished.

On Saturday, we attended A Butterfly's Touch's Walk to Remember.  This organization's mission is to share the compassion of Jesus Christ by providing support to parents experiencing infant-loss during their time of need.  We received a memory box much like the one this charity gives away and it is now a prized possession.

The event was very nice.  We met some great people who experienced a loss similar to ours, created a page for a memorial album, participated in the walk, and enjoyed a very touching program.

We also visited Miah's grave and left a sunflower (Miah's flower) and some balloons.

For each night Miah was alive, Karren is lighting five candles in her honor.  Tonight is night four.

We miss you Miah and look forward to seeing you again.  You are beautiful and we cherish the memories we have of you.


  1. That is so touching... I teared up reading these beautiful things you did. I'm sure she knows how much you love her. The candle idea is great.
    Till you meet again...

  2. This is so touching. Thanks for allowing me a few precious minutes to reflect on special, miracle Miah. She has touched so many lives.
