Amazing!

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but I need to!

I HAVE THEE MOST AMAZING PEOPLE IN MY LIFE!

They have been there for me so much this past year, and I couldn't thank them enough! Not only was Cameron's memorial absolutely beautiful here with us, but we had people from all over the United States, and even half way across the world who thought of Cameron on his birthday. Cameron had balloons released for him in Texas, Florida, Alabama, Michigan, Arizona, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Iowa, and in Germany, New Zealand and Brazil!

One of the girls from my board (that I've been with since gosh....I want to say January of 2008) collected all of the pictures from everyone who had sent up balloons and made me an amazingly beautiful scrapbook for Cameron's first birthday! I cried my eyes out when I opened the package and saw that little blue book with tiny baby feet with a little feather behind them, and his name on the front. It was just amazing!!

It means more to me than any of those girls will EVER know. Mostly because I never thought I would have a scrapbook for Cameron. We obviously have them for our children that are here, but how can we make one for the one's who aren't? After receiving that book, I realized that just because Cameron isn't here, doesn't mean I can't put together something like that. I have pictures from my pregnancy, from the hospital, from his memorial, from The Walk To Remember, pictures of all of his stuff. I can make one and continue to add to it for as long as I live!

Here are some picture from Cam's Birthday here and from the scrapbook the girls made me! Just click on them to make them bigger if need be!

He did such a good job!

Releasing the butterflies and balloons. If you look close, you can see the butterfly that landed on my hand. The picture below this was when 2 of them landed on my hand about 30 seconds later. :)

Absolutely beautiful. I have tears streaming down my face. I just can't find the words to describe how grateful I am that you share these moments with us. Through your posts, I know that I am not alone in this journey and I hope to be able to honor my son's birthday as you have yours.

Hollie! That is absolutely beautiful! Your pictures overwhelmed me with tears....

It is really weird, but my sister did a scrap book for me a few weeks after I delivered my Allie and the book and letters look identical. I will have to take a pic of the book and post it on my blog for you to see....it gave me chills to see yours! It is more than similar!

I have to clarify that it is the cover that is identical, not the insides..lol.

The picture of you holding Allie and your mom embracing you is a very touching and poignant picture...

Tell Aiden that those cupcakes look yummy :) Hey, I'm still pregnant and anything with frosting AND sprinkles is wonderful...

I had to come out from my lurking status, just to let you know how beautiful these photos are. I'm so sorry Cameron wasn't here to celebrate his birthday. You gave me some good ideas for my Ella's 1st.
