Mother’s Day Name Project 2013 #WW

David and I have been honored to participate in the Twinkle of Light Mother’s Day Name Project. We were given the names of babies who have died through miscarriage, pregnancy loss and stillbirth, and infant loss. We created a special image for each family, writing, drawing, photographing and knitting these babies’ names to remember and honor them. In return, each family created Clara’s name for us. (I will share Clara’s beautiful name pictures in a later post.)

I have included all of the completed names from this project, and I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them. I have also posted them in full-resolution in an album on my Facebook fan page as well.





If you have suffered from pregnancy or infant loss, and would like us to create your child’s name, please fill out our Google form. It would be our honor!

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!

    • I hope it helps the other parents. I know it has helped me to have Clara’s name written all over the world, to know that her name is being said and drawn and created. It brings home the fact that she is not forgotten. 🙂
