Being pregnant must be among the most lovely emotions a person can experience. The expecting parents are excited as they look forward to the happy days that will come after the arrival of their little one.
When Valerie Watts gave birth to a stillborn baby boy, her pleasure and emotions were shattered since she was eager to see her son’s face.
For the first few months of her pregnancy, everything was going smoothly.
Watts thought, “I’d known all week.” Compared to before, “he wasn’t moving as much.” She felt extremely uneasy.
In the womb, Noah’s umbilical cord was severed, ending his life before it had ever begun.
Watts’ melancholy seemed impossible to overcome. She was unable to part with the crib she had bought for her baby despite the fact that he did not live, and having it at home served as a reminder of the tragedy that had befallen her.
“She was reluctant,” Gerald Kumpula recounted. I was aware that she didn’t want to sell it, but she did.
Kumpula lived a few miles away and ran a business on the outskirts of Cokato. Even though the crib wasn’t on sale, he was intrigued by it when he spotted it at the Watts family yard sale.
Watts said, “I hesitated when he asked if I was selling it”.
Kumpulan was unaware of what had become of the crib at the time.
“His wife was there searching through my garage sale — at some of the baby stuff — and asked how old my kid was because I don’t use the crib anymore, and I told her that he had died in July,” Watts continued.
Kumpulas decided to return the transformed crib to the Watts family because he was aware that it belonged to them.
Watts said, “I immediately started crying.”
Kumpulas’ cradle bench is a memory of the painful times, but it is also a source of comfort for the grieving parents.
