I am so sorry

I am so sorry for your loss. I too lost a daughter who was stillborn after a uterine rupture during labor. My good friend and coworker called me later and told me that everyone who had been at my shower said to please keep the gift to do with what I wished - donate, return for cash to help with expenses, etc.
I had registered at Toys-R-Us, and because of my injuries and my husband's depression over the loss, along with just the fact of not being prepared to part with everything, it took us a few months to actually get in to the store to make the returns. I brought along proof of the baby's death, but I did not need it - the staff at Toys-R-Us were so wonderful and compassionate. They even apologized because a few things that I did not have receipts for scanned at clearance prices. They even took the crib, which we had already assembled!
I recently got engaged and was considering Target for my wedding registry. After hearing of the experience you had, I believe I'll go elsewhere.
Again, you'll be in my thoughts and prayers as you heal.
