Ruby's Birthday Tattoo

This is a very special tattoo for me. Ruby was held in a very deep place in my heart. A place I guard very heavily and when she died, that place felt like it was being ripped from me. It is not a place that will ever truly mend b/c she is not with me. I will forever ache to hold her, kiss her, and just see her.

This is her handprint from when we were waiting on organ donation and I just love what Adam did with it. When she would fall asleep on me there were so many times when she would place her hand right where the tattoo is. If I close my eyes and really think about it, there are times when I can almost feel her little hand on me.

She is forever in my heart and I will guard her spot and never let anything come in, tarnish, destroy or anything to happen to it. It is filled with memories of her, my love for her, what my dreams and hopes for her would have been and what legacy I am creating for others to remember her by.

She was and is my special Roo Roo. She was such a great little kid!! I miss you sweetness.
