In Memory of Gabriel Amos

 A memory album for the family of Gabriel Amos.


What do you say when a young couple lose a child? I was at a loss for words, but so touched by this amazing family and how they handled this tragedy with the strongest of faith, grace and dignity I have ever seen.  I worked on this mini album for several weeks before I finished it. One of those projects that a crafter wants to pour their heart into, I wanted it to be perfect...for them to journal their memories of their dear baby boy.

Gabriel's Mom blogged about her pregnancy and the many joys and the many heartbreaks of her time carrying Gabriel. It is a very touching tribute and so emotional to read. Little  Gabriel had trisomy 18, a genetic disorder. Something I had never even heard about until this family had to face it. Little Gabriel would not survive birth, but I believe he is one of the most loved babies ever born.

This is a double sided accordian fold mini album. Here you can see both sides

 I love you
To the moon and back again
To infinity and beyond
Forever and ever.
