Day of Hope: A book to remember Baby Georgie


This time last year we were looking forward to meeting our new nephew, our sons’ baby cousin, Georgie. But last fall, about six weeks before we thought we would meet him, he passed away in utero.

Georgie is very much loved and remembered, and we talk about him often in our family and in our home. We talk a lot about heaven, and our sons know Georgie is there.

To help make the abstract a little more concrete and to give us one more way to talk about Georgie, I wrote a brief poem about him and created a Shutterfly book.


When I discovered that August 19 is a Day of Hope celebrating the lives of babies who had short lives on earth, I thought I’d post a link to the book in case it might be helpful to someone else.

Here it is.

I invite you to join me today as I pray for all those who are trying to find ways to celebrate the lives of beloved children they miss.
