Who Do We Really Make Baby Things For?
We make baby things for the families and friends, for the onlookers to coo over.
The babies themselves are just as happy wrapped in a soft cotton sheet as a hand crocheted blanket.
Understanding the Love Comes Later
It’s not until later that the baby, now a child, teen, or adult understands the love in the handiwork.
But what if there is no later …
The Family Will See the Butterfly
As in every death, there are survivors.
And survivors need comfort, especially when explanations just don’t explain everything.
Family members treasure little gifts given out of love and compassion, offered as a living hope that God is still present, that He is still loving them, even in the midst of deep pain.
A little butterfly can reassure them that God can handle reality.
REALITY CHECK: Years ago, I had a butterfly baby only a few weeks old in the womb. If life is life, loss is loss. And life is life.
