My children are wonderful but who knew how challenging life would become. I am dumbfounded sometimes that they came from me. They have enriched my life exponentially to degrees of joy I never knew were possible.
This week was both Yom Kippur (October 12) and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day (October 15). We lit a candle for Solomon along with Eric's dad and brother for Yom Kippur. Imagine my surprise when Eric suggested including Solomon in our Temple's Yizkor Book. Yizkor is a memorial service held by Jews on certain holy days for deceased relatives or martyrs. We made our offering and here is the photo of Solomon's name. I rarely see his whole name anywhere. I was so touched at Eric's suggestion.
