So sorry to hear of your loss of your beautiful baby. Thank you so much for sharing your story and photo's. As a Mother of 3 girls, I could only imagine how a 20 week old looks like and although I did read many books on how big my baby was getting, it is still nice to know that your baby was a baby and fully formed. I always say as soon as you are pregnant he or she is a baby already, not a fetus or embryo as the doctors call them. I know it is a medical term but I always say it is a baby. I am very pro-life as the doctors wanted my Mum and Dad to have me aborted as my Mum could of died carrying me. Thank God, my Mum and Dad chose to keep me and my Mum also survived too. Anyway thank you again for sharing and being an inspiration to many others. If your story touches one person to continue with their pregnancy instead of opting for an abortion, then how amazing is that. God Bless you and the babies you may save, and all you inspire like you have inspired me. Thank you again. Sue. x

I am so happy you had another beautiful princess and so sorry for your terrible loss. You are a wonderful person and Walter made more of a difference in his few minutes than most adults will ever make in their lifetime.

Thank you for sharing, and may God bless you and your family. In sharing these pictures maybe it will stop someone from having an abortion and realizing that it is not a "fetus" but a small,living, human being.

We lost 3 babies in 3 different years, 2 girls and our last a boy all at the same gestational age as Walter. I have similar pictures but never would have had the courage to share. I am so glad to have come across your son Walter. My son lived 30 minutes, hard to believe that there are those among us who fail to see them as people. Sending you hugs and much understanding in the loss of your son. Love is never measured by size and the impact these babies have is life changing for those they leave behind.

You had a beautiful child and a beautiful gesture immortalizing his passage through earth. Hope you do have another kids.

I hope that you won't let the negative comments bother you...we live in an evil world with evil people! My granddaughter was born at six weeks...the hospital staff did not even try to save her. Thankfully I was there to hold her...I still feel she was trying to breathe...but no one would help...thank you for showing those precious pictures...you don't know how many lives you saved by doing so. Isn't it wonderful knowing that you will see your son something...what a blessed hope we have in knowing God! Time for sorrow...but also time for joy...for we know this is not the end of his life but the beginning of his eternal life in heaven for now!

Hi! I feel for you. I've had miscarriage in 13 weeks and didn't get to see my baby. Thank you for sharing your precious moment with your son. You have a little Angel waiting for you in Heaven. God bless you!

Hi, I wanted to thank you for sharing your experience. 24 years ago I had a little girl, Jessica Marie who was stillborn. She was full term. I just stopped feeling movement and went to the hospital. I live in Indiana in a fairly small town. I was sent to a bigger hospital and after two days of trying to have her trying all kinds of things, the doctor starting worrying about me carrying her, so they sent me by ambulance to Methodist hospital in Indianapolis. They gave me an epidural and the next morning I gave birth. We were able to hold her and take pictures after they cleaned her up and put a cute little dress on her. A priest and counselor had been in to see us the day before to talk to us. The priest returned and baptized her for us. The nurses and Dr. were wonderful. They moved me to a different part of the hospital to a private room and didn't charge extra for it. My husbands uncle came a couple of days later to get her body and we had graveside rites for her with family members. They could find nothing wrong with her and couldn't find a reason why she didn't live. I just felt God had a reason and accepted it. Within a month I was pregnant again with another girl. I had a normal birth with her. Our other daughter is 10 years older than her sister. Little Jessica looked like her older sister with dark hair. I am sorry for your loss, but I am glad you are not bitter as some women are and I think sharing your pictures will help a lot of other women. Bless you and your family.

i just gave birth on Friday, April 18th 2014, and it's just 18 weeks baby. i got infection that effect the baby so there was no other way. The doctor suggest me to give birth and give induction for that. It was a short time, i got fever in the Tuesday morning then bleeding at the afternoon and i went to emergency straight away. In the night the doctor just checked and it all okay with the baby. BUt the next morning, he just found out that the sac already out and there are no other way. i was crying at that moment cause this is my 2nd miscarriage. i had first on August 2013.
Just a shocking moment for me. After give birth, the doctor show me the baby. He said the baby is a boy. And my baby boy was so cute and peace.
Until now, i can't stop crying.. If anyone ask me what i want i right now, I just want my baby back.. not more..
