One of our clients shared her story:
This is for my best friend, Danielle, we both found out we were pregnant on the exact same day. We were due within 2 days of each other. I found out I was having a boy and she found out she was having a girl. We were both 6 months pregnant and she goes in for her sonogram and the doctor can’t find any heart beat. Her baby girl is pronounced dead and she is heart broken. She watches me go on thru my pregnancy as she waits for her day to be induced so she can have her baby. She goes in on August 23rd to have her still born and she names her after me. The baby was so small that the only option the funeral home had was to cremate her. The date is coming up to mark the baby’s birthday and this is the gift I plan to give my best friend. She carries her baby’s ashes with her every where she goes and now she can have her close to her heart. Our kids should be turning 2 together this year… my best friend walked out of the hospital to see a butterfly float to her side and land on her arm. She came home to see yellow tulips that bloomed in front of her house in the middle of August. She knew it was her daughter looking down from heaven. She knew she was there with her. This gift would mean so much to her .. especially with her daughter’s birthday approaching fast. You will never understand how happy I am to stumble upon such a gift. I know this isn’t the kind of comments that you normally see .. I just wanted to share her story.. and thank you for reading.
She bought a vial for the ashes, a small keepsake with a butterfly. Thanks for letting us serve you.
