Stars in the Sky

Look at this! 

Thanks to our friends Chuck & Kathy, our precious Green Beans will be forever honored by having their own stars named after them! 

I never knew this sort of thing existed, until I received the official paperwork from the Star Registry in the mail the other day.  Apparently you can register a star, name it, and dedicate it to a loved one.

Josh immediately located each star on Google Sky and then plotted them on this image.  They are all located around the Pisces constellation. 


It’s comforting to know that we can now look up in the sky to locate our very special stars…


  1. amazing!!!! what a beautiful gift!



  2. You have some awesome friends! How thoughtful. Now your precious babies are a part of history for all time!

  3. That is very special! The verse that immediately came to mind is:

    Psalm 147:4 He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.

  4. I LOVE that...amazing an dwonderful to always be able to look up and see them.

  5. That is SUCH a thoughtful, perfect gift! Brings tears!

  6. What a fantastic gift!! After my father died, I always looked to the sky and said that the brightest star up there was him...I think I might name a star after him, too!!

  7. My husband had stars named for our babies and I love it. What a wonderful gift you received!

  8. That is AWESOME! What an Amazing gift!

  9. I love it Lauren!! I plan to do this for Carleigh's 1st birthday.

  10. My sister got our kids one for their first birthday - so cool. Now I have to check out how Josh plotted them...I have the paperwork but I didn't know you could plot them - so cool.

    How comforting for you.

  11. That is a really neat gift. I love the idea of looking up at the stars & being reminded of your precious, little Beans!

  12. What a wonderful and touching gift! Your "Green Beans" will always be looking down on you and Josh.

  13. I have heard of this - it's so sweet!!!! (((HUGS))) Nan xo

  14. That is such a thoughtful, memorable gift!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
