I posted my story on here a few days ago looking for someone to reach out to and to assure me im not crazy and what im going through and feeling is okay especially in a society that makes me feel like my son wasnt "really" a baby. In a matter of minutes so many of you reached out to me and your stories all touched my heart and in some odd way gave me great comfort that I didnt think was possible to have....I wish all of you were here in my hometown so we could all sit down together because when im on here I dont feel so alone anymore. All of your advice was taken to heart and I just wanted to let you all know that today I named my son Ashton Michael, we had him blessed by a freind of ours who is a pastor, I gave him up to a funeral home to be cremated, and when I get him back im taking him to where my little sister is buried (which is about 2 hours from where I live) and the cemetery is allowing me to put him to rest with her. This is by far the hardest day I have had since losing him, it was hard to let go of him and give him to the funeral home, but I know it needed to be done and that I had held onto to his body long enough. I just want all of you who wrote to me to know that I couldnt of done this without your messages of hope and strength and the stories of what all of you had to go through. So once again I just wanted to pass along my update and let all of you know it wouldnt of been possible without all of your kind words and advice, your stories gave me the strength to do this, so from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU...I wish I could hug all of you!!!
