Love, Sullivan (2018)

Today is Sullivan's 9th birthday. 9! It doesn't seem like that long ago and yet it feels like a lifetime. Again this year we are doing acts of kindness to celebrate Sullivan's life. We hope you'll join in too!  There's no facebook event page like in years past (Husband and I are not on FB anymore) but you can comment here if you so desire. 

Thank you for honoring our sweet baby and thank you to the friends who have already reached out to remember him. xoxo

grief only exists where love lived first, stillbirth, infant loss

Our 1st Act of Kindness for 2014

This was our first act of kindness for Sullivan's birthday this year:

Our church has a fridge full of soda that you can purchase for .50 cents per can.  We prepaid for 5 (since Sullivan is turning 5) sodas and left a sign on the money bucket in the refrigerator.

9 days to go. . .

Just 9 short days until our baby boy will spend his 5th birthday in heaven.  We hope to see lots of people join us in honoring his life by doing an act (or two, or ten!) of kindness for others.

One thing we are really excited about doing this year is the Coffee Tip.  I've always wanted to do this but we never have. This year while our living children are at VBS, my husband and I are going in to a restaurant to order just coffees and then leaving a bIg tip when we leave.  Waitresses work so. hard. We hope to brighten the day of one of them on Sullivan's birthday!

We have other acts of kindness up our sleeves but we'll wait to share those until later!

Coming Soon: Love, Sullivan 2014

Heads up! Just a little over one month to go until Sullivan's fifth birthday!  We'd love to honor him once again by doing acts of kindness for others.  We love when you all join in!

New this year, Love, Sullivan will take place entirely here, on the blog.  In past years we have done it here and on facebook.  This year we're streamlining and will have a designated post HERE for you to comment with your act of kindness. :)

Please, use facebook/email/social media to tell your friends and family about Sullivan and his special birthday. Just be sure to come back here on his birthday to see what's going on.
