My cousins wife lost their baby at 17-18 weeks. The went in for the us to determine gender and instead, found out the baby had passed away. She delivered a tiny baby boy yesterday afternoon.

I would like to send her a care package to try and lift her spirits. I need some ideas of things to include in the package.

Thanks in advance.

I am so sorry for her and your family's loss. It is devastating to hear. One thing is a card with a handwritten note inside. For me knowing that someone cared enough to write to me either telling me they have never been through it and can't imagine what I was going through or them telling me the story of their loss and that I wasn't alone helped immensely. Memorial jewelry is always a good idea. Another thing is if your close enough take them a meal, the last thing they are going to want to do is cook. Let her know you are there for her to talk to. I know for me that the first 2 weeks I had a ton of people offering support and then they disappeared an that is when I needed them the most. Another thing you could put in is an angel figurine. Willow Tree Angels are a good thing for those. Your such a person for doing this.
