Belle's Buddies

October 25th marks one year without our girl. It's going to be an incredibly hard day- the thought of Oct. 24th and 25th makes me sick to my stomach already. I've learned it's best to distract myself from the day by doing something... So to celebrate and honor our Peanut, Ellie's Light is doing...

Belle's Buddies:
A Stuffed Animal Drive!

All stuffed animals will be given to siblings at the Children's Hospital after a child passes away. So often, these siblings get lost in the shuffle and their grief and sadness is overlooked. So we are collecting new, quality, soft and cuddly stuffed animals for the Children's Hospital bereavement program. These Buddies will help comfort these siblings in their sadness and serve as a reminder of their beloved brother or sister.

Go to Ellie's Light website to find more information on Belle's Buddies or click here on the Belle's Buddies link!

Ellie loved to hug and chew on the faces of all of her buddies; she slept with her cuddly giraffe every night. We think Belle's Buddies is a great way to honor our sweet girl's memory, so please consider donating a Buddy!

The hospital that Adam was at had donated stuffed animals from Build-A-Bear. They got one for Natalie "from" Adam. She sleeps with it every night. We call it the Adam Doggie. :) It's such a great idea. I'm gonna pick up an animal when I'm out today. You rock, Tiffany!

What a wonderful thing to do. I am so sorry for your loss and I can't believe it's going to be a year soon. My heart is with you and I will keep you in my prayers.
