To Write Their Names in the Sand

I've been so excited to share this photograph! When Jonas passed away in March, I stumbled upon this organization called "To Write Their Names in the Sand". The woman who started this also lost her baby. She and her family live in Australia near a beautiful beach with beautiful sunsets. She invites everyone who has lost a child to submit their name along with a memorial, and she writes the name in the sand and photographs it. The website always takes my breath peaceful and so wonderful for grieving parents.

Here is the direct link to his memorial on her website:

It has been difficult for me to get Jonas' name submitted, because they can be overwhelmed by the amount of names submitted. It took me 6 months to get his name submitted! But the wait was totally worth it.
