#ForeverLoved Balloon Project success! 🎈🎈🎈Photographs and plans for next year.

Source Survivingmiscarrigetogether

We could not believe how successful our #ForeverLoved Balloon Project was this year. We were staggered by the amount of response we had and how many names we collected. 

Name and date collection was only open for a couple of weeks and we got a staggering 210 responses.

Emmet’s name. Source Survivingmiscarrigetogether

First name down. 210 to go!

Not all names were photographed individualy, and not all those photographed have been included at their parents/families requests.

If you would like to be included next year, please comment and names/dates you would like remembered, and contact details (email only please) if you would like a photographic copy of your babies name.

Please note that it could be a while after June 22nd 2018 that you recieve your photos, as we are a two person team, who both have busy schedules. (All the photos for this year have been sent off.)

We couldn’t believe how it was all coming together at this point. We were staggered by the amount of names. There seemed so many when they were all written down and tied to the trees.

I was contacted by these babies Mum on Whisper, and told to say that Bobby, Angie, Gabe, V, Bug and Groot were all their bump names.

Emmett with Two ‘Ts’ parents are amazing people. I was sent this last night and it absolutely melted my heart. Their instagram @emmett_bear is fantastic.

All the balloons were up and we took a moment to appreciate all the love felt for the babies that these names and dates belong too.

You can watch the video here:

I laughed, smiled and cried while my partner and I were writing the names and dates of all the babies who are #ForeverLoved, and who are each missed by those who love them. I knew some of the stories behind the names and dates, some I knew nothing off bar how loved they all are. Some have become very dear to my heart, and I am proud to call their parents my friends. 

Love to all those babies we remembered, and to the many more who are also remembered and loved, but are not included here.

This morning we drove past to check on the balloons and we saw people taking pictures from the bridge! 

Love and Support Always,

Seeing Mummy and Daddy written down next to each other with Emmet’s name is one of if not the best thing I have ever seen. My partner could write ‘Daddy’ and it made my heart sing. Source Survivingmiscarrigetogether
