Call from hospital
I got a call from the Hospital Chaplain office today about 3pm apologizing for the confusion and told me they still had Ean. We had wanted to bring Ean home for burial but because our state has a law against burying even fetal remains on private land they were saying they couldn't release him to us and allow us to cross state lines with him. She said after speaking with their lawyers they could release him to us. So I called the first funeral home that came to mind, (those mail outs work), I was prepared to pay but they are providing casket and gravesite burial service free of charge (we don't want anything formal). I asked about cemetery sites and she mentioned one just 4 miles from our home. When I told my husband the name he said yes he knew exactly because that's where his Papa is buried. So I called them and they will also be providing a plot without charge, Hubby and I will be purchasing plots next to him. I'll call in the morning to verify we aren't going to run into any snags at the hospital but the funeral home will transport if needed for a very small fee. We'll go in and get arrangements made tomorrow and hopefully we can have the burial Saturday. I know his soul is in Heaven so burial location didn't really matter but I'm more at peace knowing he has his own location. The Resurrection Cemetery was just one big area all babies from the hospital are buried and it just bothered me the more I thought about it because the decision was a I have no other choice now and I wanted to go home and sleep.
