I don't really know how to go about this, please help.
Update: I understand that it means a lot to her. I am not trying to be stuck up or mean. It is just so for out of my comfort zone and it scares me.... I understand I may be acting a bit irrational but I can't help the way I feel and the fear I have. I feel honored that she wants me to have the clothes and I'm grateful.
My cousins wife wants to give me her little boys clothes that passed away. He died of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) at 7 months old. I don't wanna be rude or tell her I dont want them because her baby died, but I'm not gonna use them on my child. She has held onto them for like 8 years and I don't want to just take them and toss them, that would be a horrible thing to do. But I'm not using them for my baby... I just don't feel comfortable. I have read up on it and they say its not contagious, but how can they be 100% sure if they dont even know what causes it in the first place? She asked me if I had any clothes and my response was "very little", then she told me she wanted to pass his clothes down so I can't tell her I have enough now. I also tried telling her she should keep them, her response was "I'm just ready to move on but I want to give them to someone I know, so I will see them getting used because they are important to me." I JUST DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO OR SAY 😥 Any advice is greatly appreciated!
