I have a sister who thinks its weird that we took pictures of our daughter. I don't know why she feels this way, none of my other siblings think its weird. Anyways, I haven't updated my blog with what happened yet and I was planning on doing that today but wondering if it would be weird to post some pictures of Sara on there. I think she was beautiful and would love to share them. What do you guys think?

I don't think it's weird at all! My family and friends (most of them) thought it was weird, and I still to this day wont talk to my MIL because of how she acted when I asked if she wanted to see a picture of Ella...I think our babies are beatiful and perfect and anyone that thinks otherwise is the one with the problems...Why shouldn't you take pictures of your daughter? she was yours, she was alive, and she is loved! I say do whatever you feel is right,and forget what anyone else says (((hugs)))

Do what you need to do. If your family can't accept that, well...to bad for them. Sara is beautiful.

I think people think it's weird because they have a hard time being exposed to death. But I know a lot of people who have taken pictures at funerals and I don't think that's any less weird. There's something about babies dying that people find very emotionally upsetting. But...you have to do what you need.

Absolutely do what you like. Some people have a hard time when they see a picture of Makenzie. I don't care, she is my daughter and she is perfect, beautiful, and deserves to have her picture among my rainbow babies' pictures. Like Brittanie said people just have a harder time with babies.

Upload away! I think that you should share as many photos as you feel comfortable.
We have a picture of Patrick in our kitchen in a frame .... with all of the pictures of the rest of my boys! I know that peoples eyes get huge when the look and realize who it is ... but .... he was my baby too!!
Sara is beautiful .... be proud .... show her off

I agree, Sara is and always will be your daughter and you can share pictures of her if you want. I have pictures of Eli up in my house and I shared pictures of him on my blog and if it makes people uncomfortable, too bad.

If she doesn't want to see them she doesn't have to click on your blog. You do what YOU need to do, it is your grief and your choice.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

Thanks ladies. I chose to post pictures with the story and I am glad I did as she will always be a part of our lives. And fortunately nobody has been negative about it...I might bite their heads off if they did.
