We are doing this program in memory of our beautiful angel babies, and with the sincere desire to help ease the suffering of others as we wish no one ever had to go through the loss of a child.
At this point I am in search of volunteers and donations. We donate completely free of charge and have a local hospital,
a funeral home, along with a Wa hospital and high risk perinatolgist who we have already been donating
to, so this means unforunately at the moment I will not be able to send them abroad however I do hope to get the local
places we have comitted to stocked up and than be able to offer them abroad at least every once in awhile.
There is a list of items we need listed on the next page click here to go there ,you can also help support
our program, by purchasing any of our products which include customizable beaded jewerly, loss awareness jewerly, awareness
ribbons, candles, etc.
So far we have many different designs for the memory boxes (please excuse the
coloring in some of them it is due to our camera or my lack of knowledge on the camera), and are including a dispoable
camera (as long as supply allows), a beaded infant braclet that says "Angel" on safe strech beading cord with a matching mothers
braclet that says "Mom of a Angel", a pregnancy infant loss awareness ribbon with card, preemie outfit (these are given to
the nurses to be given out), hand and foot molding sets (if we can find a supplier and or get enough donations), a prayer square, a preemie blanket, a stuffed animal, a small photo frame, a suncatcher
made by my kids, a pen, a pregnancy infant loss awareness shirt pin, a forever in our hearts awareness braclet,
a list of pertinent sites, a sincere letter with a heartfelt offer to help in any way I can, a smaller box with
a reclosable bag to put a lock of hair in, a journal and a few poems.
Occasionaly we will purchase and or recieve a donation of items not listed and those items will be added
also even if they aren't listed here.
Some of these items were bought/made by us, others were donated by caring
indivuals but as you can see these items can get expensive especially when you add up the many required items with the
fact that we need so many and we have to buy them all whether we get donations or not.
We have some that are given in sets of two (A large box along with a medium) and
a few in sets of three, we use various sized and shaped paper mache boxes, we are also donating outfits to
the NICU, so far we have preemie blankets, the donated handmade preemie clothes, burial gowns, bunting bags etc and
I am working on finding a wholesaler for the large lots of preemie clothes so we can expand this.
We have bought many, many stuffed animals (mostly bears although we do purchase
other animals as we allow some of the ones we donate to go to hosplized children and others who may need them also) and
try to replenish them as soon as we run low which seems to be quite often, and more recently started donating for the
Angel Teddy Bear Foundation (which is a great organization).
We also purchased and lovingly decorated a moses basket with packs
of new sheets that we donated to the Funeral home for parents final viewing of their little
Angel and photos if they wish, we could still use more baskets to donate to other places also.
Also all the pictures on this page are property of our site so if you would

We received a donation of the beautiful micro preemie and preemie handmade
clothes, which were delievered promptly, the sizes were micro preemie, tiny enough to fit the smallest of babies through
preemie for those a little bigger and everything was excellently made, I also wanted to take the chance to once again
extend my thanks to all those who have helped, I am very thankful for you guys and gals!
