Too morbid?

Hey y'all, check out my March for Babies widget just to the right. I replaced the ultrasound photo that I used last year with an actual photo of Toren because I love this photo of him. But tell me honestly, will this be too much for "other" people - you know, not deadbaby parents. I wouldn't want this photo to turn people off from donating.

I don't think so, but then again I'm a deadbaby mom.

I think it's a beautiful picture! I'm not a deadbaby mom and I don't think it's morbid at all. Please don't change it. Especially since you love this picture of Toren so much. It's a precious picture.
*HUGS*

What a cute little photo... Sweet... I don't see it as morbid at all... but then: DBM as well. We have seen so many dead babies (besides our own) nothing can take our socks off anymore. Hm.

You know I think he's beautiful, but us babylost mamas see a lot of things that most others don't. I think though that you'd have to assume that people wanting to support the March of Dimes are 'babylost' friendly and therefore would treat your precious photo of Toren with the respect and dignity he deserves.

Oh little sweetie.

I think it's a lovely picture and perfectly appropriate for the March of Dimes.

It is a beautiful picture and I agree with all the comments above. I am also a babyloss mom but I do not think it will turn people away from donating. I am also walking for March of Dimes. Good luck to you, I hope you reach your goal.

oh my gosh, he is so sweet! i can see no way this photo of him would turn anyone off from donating.

seeing his picture just breaks my heart! i'm sitting here in my office at work, chewing on a bite of turkey wrap with tears everywhere.

He's so precious. I don't think that his photograph would be too much for "others" x

I am not babylost and I think he is absolutely beautiful. I think it's just right.

What a beautiful photo.

I think it's a great picture. I don't think I've seen his pic before. He's gorgeous! I think it's important for others to see that we had "real" babies. Please share.

He's your baby. What's morbid about having a picture of your baby?

I don't think it's morbid at all. But then I have Hannah's picture up in several places in my house. I am not sure what "normal" people think.

He's beautiful.
