Angel Memory Boxes

Our Angel Memory Boxes are given to families who experience the loss of a baby from 16 weeks gestation through the first year of life or children in the PICU at local hospitals.  We know that nothing can replace the loss of a child.  Our hope is that these care packages give parents guidance during their brief moments in the hospital with their babies and bring comfort during their grief.  Here are some of the items that we include in our memory boxes.

  • Memento box
  • Sympathy card
  • Pamphlets created by Mikayla’s Grace with the help of local bereaved parents:
    • “What I wish someone would have told me before I left the hospital”
    • “Making Funeral/Cremation Arrangements”
  • Teddy bear
  • Double Heart Pendants
  • Envelope keepsake for lock of hair
  • Special keepsake cards for hand and footprints
  • Keepsake Certificate of Life
  • Votive candle
  • Little Footprints: A Special Babies Memory Book
  • Strong and Tender: A guide for Father’s whose Baby has died
  • Grief resources and booklets
  • Other items donated separately from the boxes:
    • Hand/foot molds to make 3 D impressions of baby’s hand and feet as keepsakes
    • Special burial gowns with matching hat and booties
    • Pair of Knit blankets (One to keep with baby and one to send home with parents as keepsake)
