Not too long after the day I spent at the beach with Calvin, I came across Melissa’s blog, 2FeetOnEarth1intheStars, and her request for the Calypso Name Project in celebration of her daughter’s 2nd Birthday in Heaven. Knowing how powerful it was to see my son’s name written in such a way, I decided that I would do this for her.
On Mother’s Day of this year – my first Mother’s Day as a mommy (which I wrote about here) – I found comfort and healing in remembering the children of other mothers who, like me, had to say goodbye to their precious little ones much, much sooner than we ever would have wanted.
I’ve been meaning to share these photos and the names of just some of Calvin’s friends. Tonight feels right for it.
I met these babies through their sweet mothers, some of which have blogs of their own, and which are linked below. If you feel so moved, please visit their sites.

To the mothers who see their babies’ names here, if you would like the high resolution photo, please let me know at crystal[at]louielovescrystal[dot]com so I can send it to you.
