I just saw this article about Michelle Duggar's miscarriage. They had the same situation as we did. They went to the doctor to find out the sex, and instead of finding out the baby had Anencephaly, they found out there was no heartbeat.
No matter when you lose a child, there is still grief and sadness. I fully respect their decision to hold a funeral for this little life. It is a big step in the healing process.
