in 15 years, this family had 8 kids. they lost one early. I find it sad they didn't name her, if she lived for 12 days. I'm sure there was a reason for this. Maybe there was something wrong with her and they just didn't name her. maybe there was a family tradition that you named them when they reached a certain age. I wish I knew. it just seems sad to go thru eternity with the name Infant Dau.
