Following the weeks after we lost Lukas, the thought of having a headstone was something I couldn't bare thinking about. Its was something beyond imagination, there was no way I was going to get a headstone for my baby boy, they represent death and are cold and so official.
However somehow the weeks have turned into months, and my thoughts have changed. I feel as its time to acknowledge his identity this way, acknowledge the place where we said our last goodbye and the place where he lays. This sacred place. I feel comfortable with the idea of getting one now in contrast to the objection at first. I have given myself time, and have realized its all part of this journey. I don't think I ever would have thought of myself to be in this position in those early days where his death was just cold and cruel. My heart has warmed up a little, well actually a lot and this warmness I feel is something I want to embrace. I promised Lukas I would do everything I can to keep his memory alive, and this is part of it but its also a part of the healing and a part of his story.
