We got a call to bury a baby today. The mother (unnamed), of the baby did not know she was pregnant and went to the hospital. The mother was 39 weeks pregnant and delivered a 7 pound baby girl who was stillborn. The mother said, “I don’t want it. I don’t even want to know what it is.”
She did not want to hold it and refused to see the baby. She said she did not want to name it. She didn’t want anyone to know that this baby was born. Like it never existed. This baby was treated as though it was worthless, insignificant and unimportant.
When I was asked, “Would you like to have the baby?” I emphatically said, “Yes! We will make her ours!” Unwanted, unloved, forsaken and abandoned, no more. Now she is ours! No one should ever be insignificant.
The man, (unnamed source) who called us about this baby wanted to name this baby Precious. There was another person that has done so much for CBIB, so therefore, we wanted to honor them by giving the baby their last name, Sinclair. This baby was worthy of a beautiful name, Precious Sinclair. This baby was not worthless but indeed precious. We will honor and remember her as a child of God, who was welcomed in the arms of a loving Heavenly Father. I have called you by name and now you are mine.
