Ways to Honor A Baby
With Us Forever Memorials
- Many parents find it helpful to have their baby memorialized in a tangible way. The With Us Forever Memorials, an online peer to peer fundraising memorial with a photo and message board, can be set up by parents, family members, or friends at any time. We find parents choose this option in lieu of flowers immediately following the death of the their baby, and a designated family member or friend sets up the memorial.
- Holding a memorial event can bring about a sense of community, support, and acknowledgement of our babies gone too soon. A memorial event can be held in honor of one baby, or many. We find parents choose this option after 6 – 10 months have passed since the death of their baby.
Tree of Hope
- The Tree of Hope is a tribute to the thousands of babies who have died, representing our loss and our love in a way that nothing else can. The Tree of Hope’s leaves, plaques, blossoms and wings are sewn onto a cloth banner that travels to conferences, hospitals, shows and events around the country for all to see. Individual leaves are offered in recognition of a $200 contribution and benefactor recognition is available at the following levels: Foundation Stone ($1,500), Blossom of Life ($5,000) and Wings of Peace ($10,000). We find family, friends, and coworkers, gift the leaves and stones to the family immediately following the death of the baby, or in honor of a holiday, anniversary, or date of importance to the family.
