Walter's tiny heart was still beating as his mother and father said their goodbyes

Joshua Fretz and his wife Alexis say being able to hold their son and say goodbye has helped their healing process

Fretz says the term 'fetus' is insulting, and that her son was a baby, even though he was so tiny

The Fretzes also wanted their two daughters to be able to farewell their longed-for brother

Alexis Fretz says pre-term labor and miscarriage aren't spoken about and many women are not given an opportunity to grieve after losing a baby early in pregnancy

Photographs and memories are all the Fretzes have left of Walter


Alexis Fretz was 30 years old and 19 weeks pregnant with her third child when she began bleeding lightly.
Not overly worried, she called her midwife and as a precaution was advised to head to the ER in a Kokomo, Indiana hospital for a check-up. By the end of the day, her son Walter had been born and died in her arms.
