Carson's Legacy

November 30, 2018

I first met Hannah Newman earlier this year after she designed a sweet graphic in memory of my sweet Rowan, but I've been following her story before that.

Hannah is the aunt of precious Carson Parker Newman, who was born silent on Jan. 14, 2016. I resonated with Hannah, because I'm also the aunt to six sweet angels in Heaven. Hannah is also a
recipient of a bear from Rowan's Bear

In today's post, Hannah shares a little bit of her story, Parker's and what her RB bear means. Keep reading to learn about Hannah.

On Jan. 14, 2016 , I became an aunt to the most beautiful and silent boy. Carson Parker Newman. He was stillborn just three days before his due date, and it was the most heartbreaking thing me and my family has ever been through.

Since then I’ve done everything in my power to keep his memory alive, by starting an Instagram called @CarsonsLegacy. Through that, so many people around the world have heard Carson’s name and know all about him, and I’ve also been able to reach out to other families and help them keep their baby’s memories alive as well. 

Life after stillbirth as an aunt has been such a roller coaster of emotions, and I wouldn’t wish this type of pain on anybody in the world, but I’ve also met so extraordinary people throughout this journey. One of those people being Megan, the founder of Rowan’s Bear, who kindly sent me a sweet bear in memory of Carson.

It’s so heartwarming how the child loss community has welcomed me with open warms with just being “the aunt." I’m so incredibly grateful for all of the love and support I have from so many amazing women throughout my grief journey, and that I can also be there for them as well. 

This bear will definitely be a special gift that I treasure forever, as well as the many friendships I’ve made along the way.

If you’re a grandparent, aunt or uncle, sibling or cousin that has had a miscarriage, stillbirth or any other type of child loss in your family, please talk about them, speak their name. It will not upset the parents like most think, but it will actually warm their hearts to know their babies aren’t forgotten about.
