Hello! I am new to the forum, but I am a long time reader of Suzanne’s blog. I am wondering if I could get your help with a project that I am working on…

My dear, sweet friend lost her 2 month old baby boy to SIDS last week. I have been trying and trying to think of ways to help ease my friend and her husband through this devestating loss. I finally came up with the idea to try to see if I can get the baby’s name, “EZRA”, written in different mediums from all over the world, pictures taken of his name, and all of them put into an album for the family to have. You could write it the dirt, sand, a wall, with chalk, carve a tree with his initals, print it on a sheet of paper, anything! Be creative! I began this little project yesterday (the day of his funeral) and so far the response has been overwhelming. Our city mayor is going to do something, our baseball team, local news…I have complete strangers emailing me their creations! I am blown away! I want to give my friend a tangible item that she can go to when she is feeling alone in her grief to see that she is NOT alone. That the loss of an infant touches people that she never knew, that she will never know…that we all will help keep his memory alive!

I am trying to cover every state in the nation and as many countries as I can. If you think that you would like to help with The Ezra Project, please message me or comment here. I will send you the information. All photos will be credited to the photographer with the name of the location of where the picture was taken. Thank you so much!!

MODS, I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to put this, so please move it if you need to. Thank you!

Your friends are lucky to have a friend like you in their time of grief. Your heartfelt efforts will surely be a comfort. Thinking of possibilities, but have no camera at this time. Best of luck in your endeavor.

Bonita, thank you. Here is the link to the photostream that I have set up. It is kind of unbelieveable! The response is overwhelming…but we can always use more help! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ if you have a picture phone, you can always text message me the photo. Let me know if you have that capability and I will message you my number.

Thank you for your sweet encouragement…and wish me luck! I am going to attempt to contact our Governor Perry and our Congressman on Monday! AND, a friend of mine has a friend who is close to the Obama campaign and the first lady knows her by name. We are going to try to get her involved…how AWESOME would that be?? I will keep those of you who are interested updated. Now, what would be great is if Suzanne could get Clover to pose with a sign with EZRA’s name. You know, because Clover is amazing :)

cloverclover       EZRA     cloverclover

 

May the blessing of the rain be on you–

the soft sweet rain.

May it fall upon your spirit

so that all the little flowers may spring up,

and shed their sweetness on the air.

May the blessing of the great rains be on you,

may they beat upon your spirit

and wash it fair & clean,

and leave there many a shining pool

where the blue of heaven shines,

and sometimes a star.
