I’m not allowed to show her beautiful face or name but I will share this moment the best I can.
Baby girl lived 54 days. She fell asleep and never woke up. I got a call from Summers Funeral home to take pictures of this sweet angel. This was a first for me. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived. I took a deep breath and walked into the room. She was so perfect, so beautiful laying in the basket. She had a hat on with a pink bow, black and white animal pajamas and a pink pacifier in her mouth…wrapped up with a super soft blanket.
She had the most beautiful eyelashes I have ever seen. They were so thick and long. She looked like a baby doll. Her skin was so soft and she was so long. She was definitely going to be tall.
I got a few pictures in the outfit she had on and then carefully undressed her and put a bow on her head that was cream, pink and purple and wrapped her with a purple wrap. I laid her down on a beautiful tutu and took pictures of her. I took full body, her hands, her feet, straight on close up of her face, her profile, and her tiny little ears.
The question I get asked, “did you feel a presence”. I have to say I did not. I did talk to her and hold her little hand. It was hard to believe she wasn’t alive. It seemed as though she was just sleeping.
My heart hurst for her mama! All I can hope is that the pictures I provided them will be a beautiful keepsake to remember her.
