Aloha Remembered

You may know I have taken down my sand-site-that-shall-not-be-named but you may not know we are still taking photos of our babies names in the sand.

Check out our new site Aloha Remembered

My sister lives on the windward shore of Hawaii- there is a beach there designated as a 'quiet place of rememberance' and she will take photos of our babies names. I will post your baby's photo on our site, and you can choose to either receive the high res image by email or an 8x10 by snail mail.

We have decided to start charging for this project, so we are able to donate from the profits. Some places we have donated so far include March of Dimes, SHARE and my hospital's bereavement committee.

I picked the name "Aloha Remembered" because the photos are taken in Hawaii and the word Aloha means both hello, and goodbye. Actually, it means quite a bit more than that, including peace, love, compassion. So fitting. All these things I said and felt to my baby as I said both hello, goodbye, and 'I love you' to Gabriel all at once. 7 years ago this Sunday

If you have a button on your blog from my other site, THANK YOU. But be aware that site is no longer active. I'm working on a button for our new Aloha Remembered site and hope to have it up soon.

I'm glad you do this and I already got my pic. Thanks! I really wanted to get her name in the sand of a beach in Hawaii since we went there while I was still pregnant with Carleigh. And it was only a couple of days after we got her fatal diagnosis.

Em, I've been thinking of you all day today. Wanted to stop by and just say hello and send love your way. So very excited to here about Aloha Remembered bringing your sand photo efforts back online! I can't remember where all we have links to the old site, but we'll change/update that for sure. And if you see any anywhere that I don't get switched, just let me know...

What a beautiful tribute to the special Angel Babies. May you be blessed by helping others to heal.
