baby memorial album

Hello. I have been lurking on this group for a few weeks now, and I am in
need of some help. Last week a friend gave birth to two twin boys, but they
both died within a few hours. She knows I love scrapbooking, and she wants
to make one for the boys. I have no idea what she could put in it. If
anyone knows of anything, or has seen some ideas on a website, could you
please let me know. I think doing a scrapbook will keep her busy, and help
her with the grieving process.
Thanks,
Diane

First of all, HELLO Diane and Welcome to RCS!!quit lurking and come out and play!!
So sorry to hear about that loss. It is so sad to hear about losing children, but knowing someone has to be even worse.
A while back someone in here posted a lo or something that was done in that type of format. Maybe they will repost or someone tell ya who.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and yours.

So sorry to hear about your friends loss. It's great of you to get her going on an album. I think maybe an ABC album would be the easiest. It could be geared toward a Memorial album for the babies. One could even include journaling and pictures from the pregnancy. I put a few links below that have helped me put together ABC albums.

I believe that Crissy did an album in memory of Dylan which she shared with us a while back. It's in her gallery

Welcome to the group. I had a friend who also lost a baby at birth. They had taken pictures of him at the hospital to remember him. She doesn't work here any more. She used to also be on this group. But I don't think she put her stuff in the gallery. Sorry I couldn't be more of help.

Hi Diane and welcome to RCS... I'm so sorry to hear of your friends loss, that would be such a difficult time for you all. I see that you have already had some wonderful suggestions, I've not done a memorial album as yet, so I'm afraid I can't offer any help with that. I just wanted to say hello and welcome you and let you know I will say a prayer for those two little angels and their family. luv Cec...xxx

Hello Diana,
Welcome to the board! I post here often then life gets busy I disappear and then I come back. But I'm always lurking here. So sorry to hear of the lost of your friends baby. It is so hard to lose a child whose life hasn't even begin. Almost 2 years ago we lost our baby Dylan to SIDS (he was several months old). We were very fourtnate that we took tons of pictures of Dylan daily (I'm a big picture person). My MIL asked one day if I could make a scrapbook page for her to frame of Dylan's hospital picture, card I made for thanksgiving of his handprint, the obituary, and the card from the funeral. She said make it when you feel like it. I thought no way could I ever make a scrapbook of Dylan it was to painful. One night I pulled out all the stuff and found it to be relaxing and it helped me. I slowly still work on his album (but thats because I'm tough on myself and want this to be the perfect and best album I've ever done). Enough about me (sorry) let me see if I can give you some ideas. I would recommend a page for thier bracelet and any other thing they got from the hostipal. If they were a little hat (to keep their head warm) scan that onto a page. A page of their birth stats. Please feel free to email me if you need to help or did ideas. I will be happy to help. Your friend and family is in my thoughts.
Chrissy

Please extend my condolences and prayers to your friend. :*(
I've made memorial albums for myself, sadly, and for a few other people--basically, I did it the same as I would a living baby, with some inspirationally poems and pictures, etc...never had the courage to take pictures of my personal albums (yes, more than one loss of a pregnancy) but I did do one for a couple at church who's little boy didn't die at birth, but not long after. If you like here's some of the pages at
