Lindsey and I (this is her husband Kevin writing) returned home from the hospital on Monday night. Leaving the hospital and returning home without our sweet Sophie with us was incredibly hard. As Lindsey and I slowly climbed the stairs to our apartment (I’m so proud of Lindsey and how well she has been physically recovering), Lindsey looked to our door and said in tears, “There is supposed to be a sign on the door that says, ‘Welcome Home Sophie’.” But there wasn’t. Because Sophie wasn’t with us.
Welcome to A Beautiful Remembrance
We offer a beautiful selection of thoughtful, comforting gifts for those grieving the loss of a child through death, stillbirth, and miscarriage. We are deeply sorry for whatever circumstances have brought you here for a memorial print. I pray that each gift will bring some comfort to the family who has lost a loved one.
Lindsey is a loss mom of 2 heavenly babies. We will be sharing a series of her posts. Our next post will be from her husband.
When there are no words, pictures tell the story of sweet joy, celebration and love that filled our 10 hours with Sophie as we grew to know and love her even more than we could have ever dreamed possible. Those 10 hours were filled with and surrounded by holy moments, that in the coming days I hope to put into words as we have a chance to process together all that God did that weekend. God truly brought to fruition the passage He led me to months ago as I thought and dreamed of Sophie’s arrival.
As a Loss Parent, how should you answer the question - How many children do you have? On Instagram and Facebook, we usually post a heart question to the loss community once a week. Recently we posted the question “What do you say when someone asks you how many children you have?”. We had a flood of responses.
We can summarize the answers with one common theme. How you answer this depends on who is asking and how you are feeling at that particular point in time.
So many of you gave this advice: You should answer however you feel comfortable (which is not the same every time), with no pressure to disclose everything and if you choose to respond including your heavenly baby/babies you do not have to feel responsible for the other person’s reaction or lack of. Guard your hearts if you choose to share, not everyone understands what your life is like as a loss parent & they may react in a negative or awkward way. It's okay when this happens loss mom, it stings but remember you are not alone in this.
One mom ended her answer with this thought which I think is a fantastic idea for everyone “I do wish people would reframe their question and instead say “tell me about your family” to give you the option of how to approach it 💛”
Not only are these prints beautiful and so significant. The shop owner is thoughtful, kind, and intentional.
Lisa is such a sweet woman with a kind heart. I received two of her beautiful prints and they had me in tears. Not only were they special, but they captured my daughter so perfectly. Thank you to Lisa and A Beautiful Remembrance for these precious gifts I will cherish forever. These are staying on my wall forever, to look at, and remember my beautiful baby girl.
This was exactly the right gift and meant a lot to the grieving parents. Thank you.
I couldn’t have been more happy with the beautiful prints I ordered. Lisa was so helpful and caring for our families losses. I hope it will bring comfort to the couples and grandparents who are grieving the loss of their precious little infants. God blessings on you for providing these remembrances.
Finding something ideal for my best friend and her husband was hard. I never in a million years imagined I'd have someone so close to me go through something so difficult. I came across Lisa's website late at night. Within hours she was sending me a proof! Waiting within minutes. She worked with me over and over again as I wanted the placement of colors to be very specific. I never felt rushed or that I was irritating her. The whole interaction was transformational rather than transactional. Thank you for the beautiful gift.
I am so thankful to have stumbled upon A Beautiful Remembrance shortly after losing our baby to miscarriage. The products are absolutely beautiful, and they help highlight the meaning and dignity of every life, no matter how short. Thank you so much!
So very pleased with the beautiful print following the loss of my sister's baby. Lisa was absolutely fantastic and so caring and considerate throughout the process. She even generously offered two additional small gifts for the grandparents. Thank you so much Lisa, I appreciate your genuine compassion and giving nature xxoo
I loved the way this painting represents my family. I placed it in a special place in my house and besides that it gives a decorative touch, this painting has a very special meaning for us. Thank you!💕
This art print is so beautiful, better than I imagined. Lisa was so kind and respectful throughout the entire process. I highly recommend this page. Thanks a lot💗
My whole experience was excellent. Lisa worked with me to get the colors exact, provided me proofs, responded quickly, etc. She was very personable which made this a very special experience.
I’m so glad I found this website - one of my best friends had a stillborn at 36 weeks, and lives in another state. I wanted a way to show her that her loss will never be forgotten, and give her and her husband something that could memorialize that chapter in their lives. They loved this framed art piece, and put it next to their daughter’s urn. I can only hope this gift provides some solace, and was worth every penny.
I cant say enough about Lisa and her products. She is phenomenal and goes above and beyond. I have written 1 review already but i wanted to share pictures of the finished product as well. You will not regret purchasing any of her products.
Beautiful artwork, thank you so much!
I ordered this for my brother and sister-in-law in remembrance of their 19 month old daughter who died suddenly in 2009. I wanted them to have something showing their whole family in one place. I thought the picture was absolutely beautiful and they both seemed to really like it when I gave it to them. The customer service was top-notch and very considerate, too.
I needed to take the time and commend Lisa on going above and beyond exceptional service. The great care and compassion given to me at a very difficult time after losing my daughter, was greatly appreciated. Not only does Lisa work with you every step of the way to be sure that you receive what you ask for she treats you like family. I am very happy with my order and would recommend her to anyone that is in need of her products. I didn't get to make many memories with my baby girl Phoenix, but Lisa made sure the memories I was able to make are forever captured and will always be treasured. Thank you again Lisa, I can't express enough the warmth and gentleness of which you worked with me on the details. You are truly heaven sent, and I wish you always the best.
