Justin and Angela Escher began the year 2013 full of hope. In July, they expected the birth of their first child. But four months before her due date, Angela noticed the baby wasn’t kicking. They decided to go in for a checkup.
“We found out she had passed away,” Angela said. “On April 25, our daughter Leila was stillborn.”
Before Leila’s birth, the doctors asked if they wanted to take pictures with their baby. Angela felt unsure of the idea and talked it through with Justin and her extended family. Although still uncertain, they decided to do it.
