Cremation Jewelry, Box's and Urns, Build-A-Bear
When our baby was born, suddenly I found myself being faced with what next? I never even had on my radar what we wanted to do with the remains. The choices we were given was a) do nothing, the hospital would handle it, the baby would be burried in a common grave. b) have our own burrial and service. c) cremation. Since we are all alone in this state, I didn't want to have a service and burrial, and since we don't plan on staying here, I wouldn't want my baby burried in a state we don't call home. So, we had him cremated.
A friend was telling me about Cremation Jewelry. Typically neclaces, bracelets or rings with a small bit of your babies ashes encapsuled inside. I've been looking into that, they have mens jewelry too, so maybe my husband and I can each hold a peice of him with us everyday. We could also just get a box or urn, or there is even an option through Build-A-Bear, it's free, by appt only, they will put the ashes in a bear...the nurses were telling me it might be nice for our other kids, to relate that bear with their baby brother and be able to give it a hug.
I just don't know, Have any of you done any of these options, what do you think. I know I don't have to decide right away, just trying to weigh the pro and cons of each.
