Catherine (Kate) M.

Kate, in her mother’s words, “died in my belly on December 18, 2011. On December 22, I delivered her stillborn. She was a perfectly healthy baby—her death was caused by a placental abruption.”

“In essence, we never got to see Kate alive,” her mother adds, “but when I delivered and we had the opportunity to hold her all day, we began to call her Sweet Kate. She was beautiful, peaceful, and sweet. Kate was truly a blessing in our lives that we will never forget. In Kate’s brief time here, she has given us so much. She has taught us and our friends and family what’s really important in life.”
