Altar to Lost Babies

This altar is dedicated to the babies who were not able to stay with us in the life due to miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion/genetic termination, adoption, extreme prematurity or death in infancy due to SIDS or other complications. It is a time for us to honor that which we lost and celebrate what they brought into our lives and our hearts in the short time they were with us. It is an opportunity to speak or share their names or just name the complex feelings we may have around their presence/absence.
