I agree with you Kelly. How could this be comforting for her?? If my daughter died, a teddy bear is the last place I would want her ashes......now maybe in my garden with some roses or something.....

It is none of our business how a heart broken parent grieves......it is not our pain it is theirs.
What ever help's them get through this devistating pain is fine by me..obviously the people leaving these unfeeling, spiteful comments are lucky enough to still have their children to hold.......I suggest they go and hug them now and be thankful that they still can !!!

Who started checking political affiliations of those mourning the loss of a child? If you couldn't agree more with that previous post then you are truly stupid.Sorry your baby dies but get a clue moron.

To those who have said putting a childs ashes in a teddy bear:
I'm so glad that you've never lost your child and are having to deal with that pain on a daily basis.
Since you are lucky enough not to be in this position, you have absolutely no right to suggest how other parents should grieve. What a parent does with their childs ashes is a very personal choice.
In times of pure despair, even the smallest comforts are life savers-literally.
So get off your high horses and go and enjoy your children. You have no idea how fortunate you are.

Our son was stillborn less than a week ago, and we plan to put his ashes into a keepsake teddy that we can cuddle if we want to, or simply place on a shelf for safekeeping. At just about 2lbs, our baby was too small and fragile to cuddle: as much as I wanted to give him a big squeeze and show him all the love I had for him, it simply wasn't possible. The thing about placing his ashes in a teddy is that it's not necessarily permenant, and we can always move his ashes to a casket or urn when we feel ready. Those of you throwing shade should thank the lord you've never felt the unbearable agony of losing a precious baby.

Everyone grieves differently.
To show no compassion, by ridiculing the way one grieves, is truly heartless.

Peace to all those who suffer from such loss.

If you would read this thread again you would see what he is saying and what he is responding to.I couldn't agree with him more.This thread has nothing political in it yet some of these idiots are trying to make this into a conservative/These things are sad to everyone.Why do you support such heartless divisive posts?
