We are a non-profit organization established to support 
families who have experienced infant death.


Why was this organization created?

The birth of a child is one of life’s most precious gifts. Most newborns will grow and thrive. However, according to the Center for Disease Control, for every 1,000 babies born in the U.S. six die during their first year. This statistic on infant mortality represents a large number of mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, and other family members who are in need of support. We are dedicated to offering services that help families heal after the devastating and often unexpected death of their newborn. There is life after the death of an infant and our mission is to foster relationships that allow families to recover and thrive.
