I passed the baby....... now what?
I passed the baby. I could see head, spine, arm nubs, leg nubs, eye socket, nasal area lips. I couldn't bear to just flush my baby down the toilet. My loss was confirmed at 8 weeks 5 days. I emailed the only funeral home on the island that I could find and asked if they could do a cremation with remains that small. I asked if I added something person to the remains to be cremated with the baby would there possibly be enough ash then? I know some remains of a miscarriage this early cannot be done because of lack of bone. I read online a woman that said she had some special items cremated with the baby and that created enough ash to give them. Ideally I would like to have a cremation done and wear a necklace with the ashes in it so my baby can always be close to my heart. In the event I cannot find a home to cremate the remains I found a website that had miscarriage caskets as small as 'up to 11 weeks'. There were caskets for all trimesters. We won't bury our baby because we are military and will always move and I couldn't bear to leave my baby in Guam and never be able to visit a plot. But the casket comes with a serius of bottle, box inside a box all sealed and glued shut. I pray Heavenly Father finds an option for me to help me in the mourning process. I know my Angel is up in Heaven now and not alone.
Please, tell me what you did with your Angels. If there are any ideas you have that I haven't thought of I would love to hear. Thank you for being so supportive to me during this time.
