Gavin's Birthday Basket

It has been so nice to have a tradition of Gavin's Birthday Basket. Each year we take the money we would have spent on a birthday gift for Gavin and make a basket for a baby at the NICU where Gavin was taken care of. It feels good to do something good.

This year when we took the basket to the hospital we were able to see the nurse that was at his delivery and who cared for him often. It is always special to be able to see those who knew him.

I love this tradition. I can see a big smile on Gavin's face when you deliver his basket :)

I came across your blog while looking up "rainbow babies". I just delivered a stillborn little boy at 34 weeks and, although we aren't jumping back into things I know I want to get pregnant again soon so my little girl will have a brother or sister to help care for that she wants so bad. But that's beside the point. This "birthday basket" idea to honor the one you lost and recognize his birthday is such an amazing idea! I hope you don't mind that I read your story. I'm going to steal your "birthday basket" idea... :)
