A Proper Burial - Kids

“This photo is of me and my son who just turned 11. He was born at home and the midwives stashed his placenta in our freezer. As the years went on, I couldn’t just throw it out or leave it somewhere – I made it! So after 11 years, we bought a blueberry bush and I had him bury it under there. He was thrilled.  My dad dug the hole and the cat was trying to steal the placenta.”
