closure

‘I cried and cried as the nurse placed my helpless, tiny baby in a plastic take-out container. We left empty-handed, no physical proof our baby ever existed.’: Mom of angel baby urges ‘miscarriage matters’ after hospital negligence

“We were given no condolences. The doctor went straight to paperwork. I was nearly pleading for his attention now: ‘This life was important to me!’ He looked up, straight-faced and insincere. ‘Oh…sorry for your loss.’ I thought I’d at least get my baby back for a burial or cremation. The nurse broke the news over the phone. The remains of my teeny, tiny one would simply be destroyed.”

‘I wanted to find my biological parents. My mom told me ‘no’. It was a closed adoption. Soon after, a mail order DNA test caught my eye.’ Woman ‘stuck between 2 worlds’ embarks on search for family names

“On top of being adopted and feeling different, I WAS different. With my dark hair, green eyes, and short stature, I stood out. I remember looking at pictures, my family laughing about how all their noses matched. I couldn’t participate in the conversation. I felt like an outsider. My husband and I decided it was time. I sent it off.”
