Hi Everyone,

How do you decorate your baby's gravesite for those that buried your baby?

Hi. How did you get on with the decorations?

I found it really hard to find the right thing for my 2 babies graves. After a long time of searching and asking around I found a website called Lost The Fight (www.lostthefight.co.uk)

They stock a wide range of graveside ornaments and have a lot of nice things for kids graves. They also offer online memorials, so you can have photos and tributes for your lost ones. I find their whole service really helped me and my partner. My family and friends also posted tributes on my babies online memorial. It's really, really nice.

Lost The Fight offer a lot of support and deserve the credit for it. Has anyone else here used them too? xx

our twins were buried together, they had never been apart so it seemed right to do it that way. But not marker as of yet, but we have 2 solar lights and tons of flowers right now. We also have 2 large fabric pin-wheels. I take fresh flowers when I go which is not that often because I can't go by myself yet.

we are waiting to get a grave stone.
for now i take up flower arrangements from my garden, and i put a pink windmill on there today where the head stone is going to be.
I want to get some wind charms, and some kind of solar fairy lights.
my family want to put plants on there but the chickens keep coming along and pecking at the flowers i put on. I suggested they get some of the ornaments that can be purchased, like stone angels, or heart shaped stones.
I am going to have a go at painting a little plaque with her name on it soon.

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
