6 months...

Apologies I didn't post sooner. Genevive's 6 month anniversary hit us hard. I didn't sleep for a week before, and then could do nothing but sleep for a few days after. For her 6 months we made a temporary headstone, since we didn't make enough for a real one yet, but didn't want her grave empty. We weeded and evened out the dirt. Put down chipped marble. Decorated the marble with the gemstones we had on the grave before. And added a special butterfly and frog we bought for her. I hope to have a real headstone for her one year anniversary. I know of other Angel parents who made temporary ones like this and they crack during the winter. They just aren't made to handle the elements. But it looks pretty for now.

I don't know how I would have gotten by without Eddy. he is so supportive of my grief. We were having a really rocky period in our marriage for a while. I believe the twins and Genevive's death has brought us closer together.
Happy 6 months Genevive. We miss you and think of you always.

I'm so sorry. Remembering Genevive.

Her temporary headstone is beautiful. I hope that you soon raise enough to replace it with the final headstone soon.

Praying for you, sweetie. This freaking road is so damn hard! Hopefully you'll raise the money for Genevive's headstone soon (we're rallying for you!).

Stay strong in the Lord. :)
