Letter to Our Visitors
you are visiting this site, it probably means
you or someone you love has experienced a pregnancy loss
or the death of an infant or young child and you are searching
for some understanding- or some way to fill the
emptiness in your heart. We are so sorry
that you are going through this pain. We cannot
provide any easy answers to your grief.
What we can do is let you know how much we care and point you towards some resources
that will guide you along on this journey.
Please visit our Resources
Page for some ideas. Also consider our
Collection as a simple but meaningful way
of saying, "we care."

has proven to be tremendously helpful for many
grieving parents. Over 8000 albums have gone out to hurting families
in the last 7 years and it is being used
in churches, hospitals, funeral homes and bookstores.
We are also partnering with the Ronald McDonald House to bring hope and healing in terribly difficult situations.
We have received countless letters and e-mails
thanking us for understanding how difficult the loss of a pregnancy or infant is- visit our testimonial page here-Stories. Many,
many families have found a way through their despair
by journalling their thoughts about their babies in a remembrance album.
hope you find some comfort in knowing that you
are not alone in this trial. We
too have some understanding of what you are enduring,
having experienced two miscarriages and having
had two critically ill sons who were in the hospital
for some time. Matthew, our youngest, is a cancer survivor.
intend to continue to work to make this site more
helpful to you, and to your family and friends
who have experienced the loss of a precious little

of peace, a place of hope-
A Quiet Refuge.
