Dad Tad recounts the stillbirth story of his daughter Hazel in the middle of the COVID pandemic, telling us of his wife Taylor's early miscarriage, then pregnancy with Hazel and when they found out Hazel's heart wasn't beating anymore. He describes their time in the hospital and when she was born and how perfect she looked.
They later made arrangements for her burial and had a beautiful funeral for her with family and friends as best they could during the pandemic.
