A gift from Calypso's mommy

I joined Justmommies forums (specifically the pregnancy loss/stillbirth section) 2 months after Cora died.  So it's been just about 6 1/2 years now.  And in those years I have met hundreds of women who have gone through the same thing as me.  It's heartbreaking, but at the same time I have made so many wonderful friends through this shared experience.

One of them is Calypso's mom. ((I refer to her as Calypso's mom instead of by name, because really, we babyloss moms don't often get to be identified as the mothers of our babies who aren't with us, so it's nice to hear sometimes))

Anyway one of my favorite things about having babyloss friends is that Cora gets remembered, (just as I remember their babies).  It's good to have people do things for her.  And Calypso's mom has a little tree for Calypso, decorated with ornaments in memory of Calypso's friends.  And she did one for Cora.
I love that it's simply her name, because really, her name is perfect.

So, Calypso's mommy, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
