I was reading a book and there was a section that talked about naming your baby, in this section they also talk about a church in New York City. this is stright from the book.

The Church of the Holy Innocents in New York City houses a shrine to commemorate children who have died before birth. Its website tells us:

Often children who have died before birth have no grave or headstone, and sometimes not even a name. At the Church if the Holy Innocents, we invite you to name your child(ren) and to have the opportunity to have your baby's name inscribed in out "Book of Life." Here, a candle is always lit in their memory. All day long people stop and pray. On the first Monday of every month, our 12:15PM Mass is celebrated in honor of these children and for the comfort of their families. We pray that you will find peace in knowing that your child(ren) will be remembered at the Shrine and honored by all who pray here.

Visit http://www.innocents.com/ and click on "Shrine of the Unborn" to enter your child's name in the "Book of Life" and to request a certificate in honor of your child.

My husband and I did this, we sent for Londyn Duchesneau and Keagan Duchesneau our little angels who are loved so much and more and more everyday!
