Hi Ladies -

I wish to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to respond to my orginal post about stillbirth pictures in our signatures not only in this forum but in all forums - as I post here but in April 2005 playroom and more as well and my signature follows me.

Here is the decision I have gotten from Patty --

"Well after reading through the thread it is pretty clear that this is an important issue for the moms on the board. I have decided to change our policy on this. We will give any future complaining members about stillbirth photos instructions on how to turn off signatures and/or how to put members on their ignore list if they do not feel comfortable viewing stillbirth siggies."

I hope that this is good for all of us - I completely agree with this - if you want to have a picture of your angel in your signature then by all means DO IT - if there are complaints other will be told how to turn off signatures.

I like to fight the battles that are worth fighting for. I think that having this change is just one more step towards having people acknowledge our children. I know not everyone agress with me.

I agree - nothing bugs me more when others ignore the fact that I have a little girl as well

I am glad that this was the decision that was made. I think that is the most fair way to resolve the situation.

I'm so thankful that JM decided to do what was right instead of what was easy. Every baby is beautiful and every mom deserves to show them off.

it wasn't the easy way out for JM so please don't think that at all - it was trying to find a common ground for everyone.

I wasn't involved in the whole situation, but I do agree that what was done was the right thing.

I had no idea that it was not even allowed before. Jordyn has been in mine and nobody said a word. The picture is black and white though and she looks like she is sleeping, so maybe nobody noticed. I am glad to hear I can keep her there. She is my baby just as much as Lina.

great work ladies for standing up for yourselves and your angel babies. I don't see why it would offend people. If someone gets paranoid about seeing the pictures. Well I am glad this info is out there ,(not that I want anyone to ever lose a child), no not to scare them but to make them aware that things can happen. Yes the baby might of be born early and what not but its still a baby. Kudos to all of you!

* I hope that sounds right* Took me awhile to put my feelings all together and type them out.

I agree with you Jodi. No matter what a baby is a baby. We all have pictures of our children. For those who pass away, it is important to have momentos.

hiya, im not a member of this board but i just wanted to say that im glad that you fought for this. everyone deserves to show off their little ones - whether they are angels or not. And as a siggy maker, i want to add that although sometimes it is upsetting to make a siggy of an angel (not because of the photo, but because its upsetting to know that someone has lost a little one) that i do not mind making angel siggys.

(hope i havnt upset of offended anyone by my post)
