There are few things more painful than losing a child. While everyone deals with the grief in different ways, honoring the child is important and can help everyone move forward.
Information provided by March of Dimes, an organization devoted to preventing birth defects and infant death, states that about 23,600 stillbirths occur in the United States each year (about 1 in 160 pregnancies). While many causes have been determined for the heartbreaking occurrence, it can still happen without warning.
If the unthinkable happens, it’s important to do what feels best for your family, not what “should” be done. Like in Valerie Watts’s case, saving certain mementos can aid in keeping your child’s memory alive and help to heal the family.
