For many of us when we go through a process like this we begin to associate certain things to it.  Whether it be a song, a place, a flower, a bird, a bug, etc. they all become a symbol for us.  It’s our way of knowing that our little one is watching over us.  A way of letting us know that, “It’s going to be okay”.

Since the beginning of all of this dragonflies have been very present in my life, they have always intrigued me.  I have many garden stakes that deal with dragonflies around my yard.  The dragonfly runs more deeply and touches even deeper in my heart.  The maternity floor at the hospital is also known as the dragonfly floor and there was a dragonfly stone one the wall just outside my door.  Once we were home we received a peace lily and in the peace lily was a dragonfly.  For my birthday I received a card from my grandfather (who incidentally, that year-2011- chose the card on his own.  being 94 years old, my mom usually picks it out) had a dragonfly on it.  A book I received had the coloring of a dragonfly wings on the cover, as well as seeing dragonflies as a part of the website where I received my infant loss necklace from and the label of the bath bombs that I got as a Christmas gift.  For me, these seeing a dragonfly let me know that my little angel is very close by and just stopping into say “Hi Mommy, I am alright”.  Over the past year and a half, I have seen them about when I need to most, have had them land on me, and visit me while I am at Samantha’s memorial.  A dragonfly brings a great sense of peace and comfort to my mind, heart, and spirit.
