Footprints on the heart has been such an amazing organization and helped me during some of the most difficult times in my life. Losing a baby is so hard but FOTH has made things a little easier by sending a wonderful care package including a beautiful necklace that I wear in memory of my angel baby.

Footprints on the Heart came into our lives on October 16, 2019 at a life changing event....the birth of our son Caeman Emerson Campbell. Caeman was born still (and yes we knew he would be before delivery). Our doctor asked us if we would like them [FOTH] to come and be there for support after delivery. At first we were hesitant because we knew nothing of this blessing from Heaven ministry. We are so grateful that we decided for them to come. By the time I got out of the operating room (I had a c-section) they were already there! They helped us to make memories with our son that we will NEVER get back. From holding him, bathing him, my husband getting to change his first (and only) poop diaper and getting to keep our sweet boy with us in our room so we could have some much more needed time with him. The tons and tons of pictures they took and gave to us will forever be cherished. They
have stayed with us from the birth of Caeman, through the funeral and are still walking with us through this new journey we are on with our sweet rainbow baby, our baby girl Camryn (currently I am 30 weeks pregnant after loss). I feel like they have become more like family and we are so thankful God put them in our lives at the time he did, given the circumstances.

Footprints on the Heart has been so great to honor several of my family members babies gone too soon. Each year the annual candle lighting allows us to remember my nieces/nephews we lost to miscarriage, as well as 2 of my cousins nephews that were lost to stillbirth... It helps to keep their memory alive. They also allowed me to tell their story as another way to keep their names alive. Khristie goes above and beyond for each family, and strives to remember each baby lost by name.

FOTH has been there for many people I know over the past few years and each of them has said what a tremendous blessing it was. Losing a child is too horrible to imagine; knowing that others are there to help parents suffering is a great blessing.

My daughter passed in March of 2018. FOTH was by my side every step of the way. Khristie guided me through my emotions and reassured me that what I was feeling was normal. She has gone out of her way to connect me with other mother's who share a similar story. They have given me the opportunity to heal by volunteering with their team. I have seen the blessings they bring and look forward to watch them serve our community.

From the first time I reached out to Footprints on the heart, it has been a great experience. They have a great organization to help families after the loss of their child. I wish they were around when my daughter passed in 1999. They are so caring and attentive to all the families, volunteers, and supporters. Although I live 700 miles away, i do my best to support them as much as I can. Thank you again Footprints on the Heart for everything you do.
