Sienna's Bear

Before

After


The day before we had Sienna Angel Watch told us to go get some fabric that we can wrap Sienna in when we have her and then they will take the fabric and turn it into a bear. So we went and picked out fabric and this was our favorite. When the nurse took Sienna to give her a bath she came back with Sienna wrapped in this fabric, we also got pictures of Sienna wrapped in this blanket. Angel watch came after we were home from the hospital and talked to us about how we are doing and took the fabric to have a bear made out of it.
It turned out so great! This bear is so sacred to me and I probably won't let Gavin play with it cause I want it to stay clean and pure like Sienna is right now. We are going to set up a shelf in our basement with everything that is Sienna's like this bear, her molds, and a couple pictures of her cute hands and feet.
I have been doing better this past week and the break downs have slowed down and haven't been as bad. I still have my moments that I shed tears over her but with General Conference last week I have been able to find peace with the whole situation and it has been easier for me to get through. I still have moments that are hard where my heart just aches is when I see pregnant women or newborns. But life is slowly getting better and I am so grateful for her and the blessings that she has brought to my family this year.

When my mom passed away, my sister had these bears made out of my mother's robes, blankets, shawls and hats she wore while fighting cancer. They are truly a treasure. Still think about you and pray for you often. God bless.

What a wonderful idea! The fabric is perfect and the bear is so cute and looks innocent and sweet...like little Sienna.
I was thinking of you the other day and wondering how you were doing. Glad to hear that things are getting a little better.
Time will heal, even though it may be slowly...You have amazing strength, I admire you a lot!

Continuing to send loving and prayerful thoughts your way. Dear friend from faraway, I know there will be a huge empty place in my heart when you no longer have need for this blog. I am hoping our lives will remain connected here when the sun shines brightly again and the events of your life bring new joys. New wonders. New babies. I am selfishly hoping that as life moves forward, you'll have a bit of time to continue to share your family with your readers. Connected by invisible heartstrings...
