Little Feet

My sister-in-law took pictures for me of all the keepsakes I have of Aubrey and Ellie. I will post them all later, but tonight I wanted to post just this one. These are Ellie's hands and feet cast in plaster. I don't have one for Aubrey because she died in a different hospital. My amazing social worker Maria did this for us after Ellie passed away. I treasure these little precious gifts and when I saw this picture tonight I lost it. I miss my girls. After more than two years I still feel like it just happened. Those little hands and feet belonged to my baby, I touched them myself, and I'd give anything to touch them one more time.


  1. Every detail of them was fearfully and wonderfully made. Precious photograph.

  2. These are very precious keepsakes and they are so beautiful.

  3. I love those, they are SOO precious! And I understand, no matter the time passed, I feel like there are times i could just burst into tears like it happened yesterday...

  4. Rachel,
    Just wanted to let you know I am passing the Lovely Blog Award to you. Your words have so often been an inspiration to me.
