A friend who lives far from me delivered a beautiful baby boy yesterday at 24 weeks and lost him only hours later. I would like to send her something, what should I send?
A friend who lives far from me delivered a beautiful baby boy yesterday at 24 weeks and lost him only hours later. She has wanted to be a mother for a long time and struggled to conceive this baby. I am so sad for her and would like to send her something. She is supported by her sister who arrived yesterday and her husband and local friends.
I would like to send her something and am likely overthinking this. I have considered a card, flowers or gourmet cookies. I am interested in the cookies because I think she would like them however they seem too celebratory. She is in the Greater Vancouver Area in BC, Canada. I have local friends who could help but would prefer if online or telephone arrangements could be made.
What should I send?
P.S. I will visit her in a few months but since I would have to travel with my own beautiful baby I think I should wait a while before visiting.
