When I first learned there was something wrong with our baby, I immediately regretted not getting a picture of my first ultrasound. The screen showed a perfectly formed fetus with a visible heartbeat. But, because it was so tiny, the ultrasound tech said she wanted to wait to print out pictures at another ultrasound when there would be more to see on the screen.
Grief is more complicated when there’s no visible reminders of what you’ve lost. It’s almost like he/she never existed! I find it extremely sad not to have any mementos of this baby. I want something that I can share with others and tell them about the child I never knew.
We purchased this citrine necklace as a way to remember our lost child. I wanted a yellow stone since we know don’t whether it was a boy or girl. So now I have a beautiful keepsake for this baby!
