Description

Photos of icicle memorial ornament at the top of a Christmas tree with white lights, by a lesbian co-parents to honor the daughter they lost prior to the birth of their twins.

“We had been given an icicle ornament [by a friend] to represent the loss of a child, the loss a baby…. We didn’t have anything to put on top of the tree, so we got that icicle ornament and put it at the top …. Her ornament is at the top of the tree and the tree is like sprinkled with tons of stuff from the twins [who we had a year later], you know the daycare made ornaments and kids crafts … and they’re not even old enough to walk ((laughs)).”
