Missed Miscarriage How To Answer Q

How do you handle questions about "" DO YOU HAVE ANY KIDS? """ when in reality you kind of do, but you don't? I had a missed miscarriage back in 01' I was about 4months pregnant and my baby just stoped growing. After two weeks...(yes two weeks after the fact sank in) I went to the doctors again to have my baby. I had a va___al delivery with the help of drugs and I had a little boy I named Andrew. He was 4 1/2 inch long. The nurse brought him in an oversized baby shirt and a little hat and blanket. I held him and I kissed him. I ended up having a funeral for him, I couldn't stand the fact of leaving him in the hospital and having them dispose of him. I organized a legit funeral for him at a Beautiful Cemetery. He has his own little grave here in this world. So when people ask me "Do you have any Kids?"" Sometimes I say no, but then I feel guilty thinking well then who do I visit at the cemetery? I guess sometimes I don't feel the need to explain the whole story, or I simply say in "Heaven". God gave me strength I made it and not only that but I learned that LOVE is ETERNAL not even death can stop me from loving my little boy. If you ever been in my situation how do you handle these questions? Is there a proper way to answer?? Confused.

You could just say, "Yes, but sadly Andrew is no longer with us."

I like snickelfritz's answer.

Just wanted to also add how sorry I am for your experience. Having losses at 5.5 weeks and 10 weeks, I have no idea what that must have been like.
