Bereavement Conference


Our family was given the privilege of sharing the story of our angels at the Bereavement Conference at Women's Hospital this morning.  We were able to share the mission of this group and the importance of the cause.  The message seemed extremely well-received and we saw a wave of light-bulbs going off as each family shared their story.  For those in the NC area...we have a hospital that is in great need of clothing of any nature for their bereavement supply.  Please comment or send me an email if you think you can help out.  elizabeth@raindropmemories.org

Ryan's Day





Today we celebrated Ryan's first Heaven Day.  Many of us wore red today to honor him.  People sent in a flood of pictures of themselves wearing red and pictures of his name.  We collected hand-made diapers/blankets, fabric, pins, ribbon, and monetary contributions for Raindrop Memories.  Our family appreciated the love and support that poured out towards us today so much!  We hope to apply some of the generous monetary contributions of the community towards our 501 c(3) application.  We are currently researching law services in NC to assist us with this process.  Thanks for celebrating Ryan with us!!
