"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted". (Matthew 5:4)
Planning and organizing your baby's funeral will undoubtably be one the most difficult experiences you will ever have to go through. It is something no parent should ever have to do but unfortunately it may be a reality for you right now.
Your final goodbye to your baby will be a sad and difficult time for you. Your baby's service can also be a beautiful way to honor your baby. Their short little lost life has affected you in so many ways. This can be a time to share the time you have spent with your baby with special people around you.
