This is so sad for you, Benny. May you be comforted.

Yes you can. I had a funeral for my daughter, Harriet, born sleeping at 20 weeks. She had a little basketwork casket that I carried in from the hearse and a lovely little service. It was the right thing to do, she was a person not a thing, and the funeral confirmed that. I even had the lovely lady vicar, who blessed her in the hospital, to do the service. Then when my son was born healthy the next year, the same wonderful vicar christened him for me.

I had to do this a month ago. My son was also stillborn. I was 24 weeks pregnant. Today is the first day I've decided to talk about it with people who may know what I feel.
The saddest most beautiful tragic day of my life. We found a special and beautiful Childrens only cemetery in Ilford. I had never thought of a place like that existing. Seeing all those tiny graves broke my heart in a way nothing could. It was such a collection of grief. To know my baby son isn't alone is soul crushing.
