Memory Boxes and Sibling Backpacks
Forever Footprints provides Memory Boxes and Sibling Backpacks to hospitals and organizations in Orange County and surrounding areas to give to families grieving the loss of their pregnancy or baby.
Memory Boxes are a precious keepsake for a family who lost a baby. Boxes are given directly to families who request them. They are also shared with local hospitals, where nurses lovingly present them to grieving families.
Memory Boxes include a handmade baby blanket, a special teddy bear, a handmade candle and information about support services. Sometimes, this is the only keepsake families have of their baby, and they are treasured forever.
How can you ever begin to explain the loss of a baby to another child? What are the right words? Forever Footprints provides Sibling Backpacks to aid in the understanding and healing of children who are grieving the loss of a brother or sister. The backpacks include children’s books, coloring books and a special teddy bear.
