Phoenix passed away due to daycare neglect 2 days shy of being 3 months and prior to her, I miscarried one. Missing Grace is essential to my healing as I attend their support groups led by Cheri for the last two years and going. Missing Grace honors both my babies through Cheri’s guidance, crafts, and Missing Grace’s events for bereaved parents. This is not a club that anyone wants to be a part of, yet, I have met the most amazing people that have grown to be family through their support.
Missing Grace Foundation is founded and operated by extraordinary people. They provide an essential service for families who have experienced unimaginable pain or hardship in starting a family. I describe the foundation and it's people as: compassionate, selfless, high-integrity, experts, comforting, and angels. It has been my pleasure to support this organization as a volunteer and an outspoken advocate over the years!
Missing Grace is an incredible organization. They helped us through our darkest moments when we lost our son, Noah. True angels are a part of this organization. I’m eternally grateful for all they did for our family!
missing GRACE is absolutely amazing! This organization is founded on dignity, and trust, passion, heartfulness, and support. Our family has been welcomed into the bereavement family with open arms and uplifting hearts.
I lost my twin boys in 2008 due to extreme prematurity. Through Missing GRACE Foundation I found healthy ways to grieve and to remember my babies (Max & Sam) through memorial events like the Hope & Hearts Run! They provided me a way to make a legacy for Max and Sam that were not here to make for themselves! I have logged over 1,000 hours of volunteering and have raised over $ 30,000 in their memory. Being so involved with this nonprofit, I know the funds go right back into foundation and not towards board members or paid employees. GRACE CARE Baskets and Totes, Support Groups and memorial events are a few of the ways this foundation helps.
The sense of community for bereaved parents has been vital for the grieving process for me and I know for many others!
Losing my only sons to prematurity was the the lowest point of my life. This wonderful nonprofit has helped transformed my grief to a source of strength. I have been able to volunteer and fundraise in my sons memory and help them create a legacy they aren't here to make for themselves. Missing GRACE Foundation not only hosts memorial events they provide GRACE Care Baskets while parents are still in the hospital with Baby including time sensitive information while still with your baby. Missing GRACE also facilitates support groups in addition to one on one phone and online support.
The Minnesota Hope & Hearts memorial event was created as the main fundraiser of the Missing GRACE Foundation and has become a meaningful annual event for families to come together to remember our babies. Volunteering for this event has been critical to my healing and coming to terms with the worst loss anyone can suffer. The death of their child
