Our Magnolia memorial

Kevin planted our memorial tree in memory of our snowflake baby this afternoon. We didn't quite know what to get, but when we came across a beautiful Little Gem Magnolia Tree tree at the nursery, we just knew it was the right one. It blooms beautiful flowers from May through October. I always felt like this baby was a little girl, and she deserved a name. So I named her Magnolia. Mommy and Daddy will always love you and will miss you, Baby Maggie.




While at the nursery, we found the perfect statue to go next to the tree:. A sleeping angel baby. I will always be able to look out of my window and see my precious Magnolia growing strong. She may not have ever been in my arms, but she will be forever in my heart. I know I will meet her someday in heaven and grandma is with her watching over her until I join them.


We are so blessed to have such an outpouring of love and sympathy today. I thank God for our friends and family, my incredible and caring doctors, and you as my blog readers. You have helped me feel that I'm not alone during this excruciatingly painful time. Thank you so much for the support.
