A few months ago, I stumbled upon the website Names In The Sand, I was so touched and moved by how this wonderful woman helps families honour their lost babies. I told MacDougal and Funsize about it and she contacted Carly. Carly does these pictures for free, spending time away from her lovely family and in honour of her son, Christian. Such loving, caring and selfless people from around the world I have found through the internet. When I saw this, I was stunned by it’s beauty and surprised by how emotional I felt. Here is Collin’s name in the sand in Western Australia. Thank you, Carly.
