We heard about Madeline’s Mission last year. Family friends let us know about a little girl in our daughters friends group that had passed away. Her mother started this non profit to support families who have survived child loss.
Having three children of my own I cannot imagine a life without any of my children. It is such a beautiful thing to be able to help families in need.
From the Madeline’s Mission Website-
“No one ever wants to be in the child loss “club”, and those who find themselves in a club they never bargained for can feel lost, alone, and scared. Madeline’s Mission works to offer hope, comfort and guidance during the unfathomable life following the loss of a child– both directly after the loss and in the lifetime to follow.
In the same way that a doula would help a mother through childbirth, Madeline’s Mission helps to serve as a navigational resource for parents, guardians, siblings and immediate families experiencing child loss.
