Garden of Hope

There is a garden nearby...




built and designed for family and friends...



to remember the babies we loved and lost.




The Garden of Hope




We were blessed with a gift: a memorial plaque, placed on the wall at the Garden.







This past Sunday, the Board members of the Garden read all of the names out loud and prayed for the families. We attended, just the kiddos and us. It was a short but beautiful time...just like my little boy's life.

was thinking of you.
i hope your eyes had time to pass over Logan's name. We haven't visited nearly as often as we should or would like.

what an amazing place. bless the hearts of those that created this place of refuge and rememberance. what a tangible way to keep Josiah here with us, even if it's small. I'd like to go there sometime. Is it nearby?
