For my Abby's birthday I find a toy that I think she would have liked at the age she would be ( this year she would be 5) I buy it and donate it to the children's hospital in town. Then I take baloons to her graveside and tell her all about it,

Last year would have been my son's first birthday we released balloons with messages written on them and got as cake (nothing written on it) as a celebration of his life. This year (1/23) he would have been two and we spent the day with his godmother and she bought butterflies and we did a butterfly release. A few of my girlfriends that have lost children did a small gathering with family and friends and did scrapbook pages for their child with everyone there so they could be comforted around people they love. Praying for you that you will find what is best for you on you child's birthday.

Hi We hold a mass in our house each year as near as we can to celebrate our little boy Dylan who would actually be 16 on the 2nd of September. We also go to his grave with flowers and a balloon. We are hoping to do something extra special this yearr as its his 16th so if anyone has any ideas would love to hear them.

We light a candle first thing in the morning which is left all day, that flame is then taken and transferred to a garden candle when it gets dark outside, We then place it in the memorial garden.

I lost my son 06-09-05 to miscarriage. Last year was the first year I'd been able to do anything. I went out to a local park and released a few balloons for him. This year it will be a bit bigger as I lost my mom 06-11-09. I will celebrate them together.

Last year we had a day as a family. (Sierra was our 4th) We went into the mountains and did a hot dog roast and hiked to a waterfall. We took some balloons and released them. It was nice for the other kids to get to give her a message. I think we will always mark the day as a family.

yea last year i brought all of the family together and we celebrated what wouldve been his first birthday. we all had a celebration of his life, we released balloons and we just sat and talked about him for a few hours. it really helps just to get it all out there and being with family made it so much more special.

We celebrate every year with a "rememberance day" where I still bake a cake and we look through the photos and memorablilia from our first son's birth. Eventhough he died before being born, he is part of our family and our first child. We held him, had dreams for him, and loved him just as much as our 2 children now. I think it's important for our children (who are now 9 and 10) to know that they had a brother who came before them and he was just as much a part of our family. Taking a day to remember him is just a way for us as a family to keep him in our thoughts and family circle.

On my daughter's birthday (5/19), we always go to the cemetery and release pink balloons in the year, one for each year. We plant new flowers and light a special candle each year.

On the anniversary of her death (7/25) though, we don't do anything.

This year in March will be six years and I'm still trying to bring myself to visit the grave. I usually choose to remember him alone, I light my special candle from my grief counseling sessions and I go thru my memory box. Instead of being filled with unbearable sorrow, I feel warmth & undying love remembering him. :) I don't think there will ever be such a thing as long enough to stop remembering and celebrating. :-)

We used to buy balloons and attach messages to them and let them go. Last year we just spent some time going through each baby's memory box.

This year being our first anniversary, we went out to the lake at the memorial park where our daughter's ashes were scattered. My husband & I then just spent the day together.

Hi,

we celebrate our Angel Baby Jack's Birthday each year by buying a new Bonsai and lighting a small candle for him
