Quoting Kairi's Mama!:" If you dont mind me asking, how did she lose the 5?"
different fathers (2 different then i have a different father then they did) and both the two before mine were abusive.. she had miscarriages on all but one i think and it was stillborn. one of the exs pushed her down stairs others hit her. one cause her extreme stress early on. im not sure on them all.
i love the lantern idea you have but make sure you contact the local authorities. some places are illegal to release balloons or lanterns due to them hitting power lines or effecting animals. i dont want you to get in trouble on a day thats already difficult.
