Well, yesterday my new dog tag pendant came. As you can see in the picture on the left, it features an engraving of Ezra's footprints, and his name on the bottom. I ordered this necklace from a company called My Forever Child. They specialize in remembrance jewelry for baby lost parents.
I haven't worn pendants in a long time, and I thought this was the best reason to start doing it again. Now I have a tangible symbol of my love for my son that I can carry around wherever I go. Nice!
When I ordered the pendant, I emailed the company a jpeg scan of Ezra's footprints from the hospital. As you can see, my little boy has flat feet. No arch support whatsoever. Ultimately, I'm not sure whether he inherited them from his daddy, given that the men on both sides of his family have flat feet. So he couldn't win. But in the end, I'll take credit, or responsibility, for it!
When times are bad, and I find myself in a rough spot, or in the depths of whatever is bothering me, I think of my little peanut boy and those little feet. He had lots of character and personality, I am sure, lots of laughs and happy days in store for us.
