Day 2- Identity: It was hard to pick out names on kids we have never seen before, but we felt at the time of the first miscarriage that giving our child a name was a way of healing from such a set back in our lives. The names of our children in order of which we have had miscariiages are Libby Hannah Hermosa, Samuel Gene Hermosa, and Mariah Anne Hermosa. Respectively, we lost them at 9 weeks, 8 weeks and 7 weeks into the pregnancy. One would probably wonder, “How do you give your baby a name is you do not know the gender?”. We guessed. We could be right, and we could be wrong. This is our way of moving on. These names have meaning to us because we spent a good amount of time looking through a baby name book sorting through meanings of names and such. We were going for a mixture of historical names (like the Anne from the Anne Frank Diaries). In the picture above, Christina had someone in Australia make a custom butterfly arrangement at one of the beaches there with their names. Since we never got to see them in this lifetime, I don’t know what they would have looked like nor their personalities. I would have to imagine what that would have been. The only image that is burned into my memory are the Ultrasound picture of their little bodies.
