I’m sorry for your lost, and I think it’s very sweet for you to do so.  And not to take away from this post, but a friend of mine went through the same thing…and she did the same thing too.  If it makes you feel better, please do so.  Just so you know, she went on to have two beautiful children. Many hugs to you.

I think this is a beautiful idea.  Maybe you could even write a message to your Angel on one of the balloons?  Idk if that’s too much, but I’m the type of person that likes to write things out, so it would be helpful for me.

Also, here’s a site I found which might give you more information on how to do a balloon release.  http://www.balloonrelease.com/faqs.htm

Your idea brings tears to my eyes!

That is so precious and I think it would help with healing and grieving.

First off, I am sooo sorry for your loss! I think this is a beautiful idea and you should do it.  I lost my father 2 years ago and my daughter was 3 months old. We started a tradition on my dads birthday where I let her release a balloon  with a note attached to it that says  ” Happy Birthday Poppop”… Some may think its over the top but I think its special!

A lovely idea! πŸ™‚ It is very therapeutic and not over-the-top at all! I don’t know how close you are to Skyline Drive, but that is a pretty drive with a few overlooks and spots to stop at along the way.

I am very very sorry for your loss, and I fully support your plan to commemorate the day. But I urge you to consider an alternative to a balloon release. Balloons are dangerous to wild birds and animals who ingest or become entagled in them, and they can starve to death or be strangled by them. A different idea might be to plant a tree. However you choose to commemorate the day, I hope that it is healing and peaceful for you. Hugs πŸ™‚

My heart breaks for you. I can’t imagine what you are going through, but anything you can do to help you get through this terrible time has to be a good thing. Further, it’s lovely to know that you’ll remember your child in this way.

I confess, the ecological consequences hadn’t occurred to me, but I suspect smncdowell is correct regarding wildlife issues. I love the tree planting idea (It will be there forever to visit) or I’m sure there are other similar concepts that will accurately represent the symbolism of your gesture.

Massive hugs.

My Dear Mrs.Estep, you will be in my thoughts tomorrow. As you already know, my Angel is up there as well, and every year I release a balloon for her on her birthday. I never thought it was over the top. My Fiance comes with me every year, (my Angel is from a previous relationship before I met FI). Sending hugs to you darling!!!
