A display made by Courtney Swanson and her family represents their living children and the babies they have lost to miscarriage. Courtney's husband Tim built the frame. They put the two living children's foot prints, names and birthdates as well as three hearts to represent the three miscarriages. The hearts are different sizes to represent the different sizes of babies they were in gestation. The tiny colored hearts in each one are the birthstone month colors of their due dates. Their due dates are at the top with their passing dates underneath. "It was important for us to have something tangible to remember them by that we could make together as a family," Swanson said.
