  • It takes a special person to be able to do that, and I'm glad that they can.

  • Well, I wish I could have had people like that when I had a stillborn son...The hospital takes pics..But that would have been nice too.

  • Well...nothing like a good cry before bedtime. Thank you for sharing the website. Very sad. I don't think I could ever do that. It really does take a special person.

  • I have heard of that service and website too. Unfortunately I found it too late to have pics made of my little one. It would have been a nice way to remember my daughter.

  • Those who have a child that passes away will get to raise them in the after life. They were Queens and Kings in the life before they came here. You provided a body for them and that was all they needed to do in this life. Life does not stop here after we die on this earth. Nobody can take away the loss that you may feel but as for myself, I find some comfort in this.

  • Fortunately, for me, grandma tooks pics of my baby. I must admit at the time, I was very drugged and it almost seemed morbid, but today, that's all I have of him besides his hat, receiving blanket, baptism, and footprint cards. I know that may seem like a lot, but I'd rather have him. That is a wonderful service. That memory is the most precious thing I will ever have. I love my daughter immensely, I only wish I could enjoy her brother every day, the way that I"m able to enjoy her.
