Day of Hope

"We lost our son Dylan during the third trimester, due to complications from HELLP Syndrome, a pregnancy specific condition.  A beloved son, brother, and grandson; he is our little blue dragonfly.  A reminder of how quick everything can turn, the fragility of life.  My hope for my family is to focus on strength, love and joy.

This is a prayer flag I made for the event: August 19th - Day of Hope is a day that is held internationally each year since 2008. It was created to help break the silence surrounding the death of babies and children. Part of this very special day is The August 19th - Day of Hope Prayer Flag Project which is a profoundly moving, poignant and peaceful way to break the silence surrounding the death of babies and children."
