|My Grandson, Andrew|
|Betsy Spencer, Andrew’s Grandma|
|I learned that my grandson Andrew had arrived stillborn, and my heart broke. As parents our impulse is always to protect our children, but in this situation I felt so very helpless.
At Andrew’s funeral, our families gathered together and propped each other up – I was crying so hard I could hardly see. One by one, we placed ivory roses on his small casket and I said to myself, “Good-bye Andrew, I will always love you.” I took some comfort in knowing that my grandson was wrapped in the yellow receiving blanket I had given him.
