Individual Requests

PLEASE READ BEFORE SUBMITTING A REQUEST

The Ladies of Weighted Angels send our condolences to you and your family and are saddened that you know this pain. While our hearts break with you, we hope that Weighted Angels is able to provide your family a little comfort during this time and as you navigate through your journey with grief.

 

We provide families who are experiencing pregnancy & neonatal loss with a weighted, stuffed animal that weighs the approximate birth weight of your baby. While our mission is to provide our Angels to hospitals, we do currently provide a very limited number of individual requests per month.

 

As our organization continues to grows, we have had to implement a few guidelines to ensure that we focus on our mission of never letting a family leave a hospital with empty arms and that we are able to continue to serve as many families each year as we can. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we put forth some guidelines around individual requests. We want to continue to support the loss community. Thank you for choosing Weighted Angels to honor your sweet, baby(ies).

Weighted Angels Individual Requests

Updated 7/27/2023

Because our mission is to serve families leaving the hospitals, we ask that when submitting a request for a Weighted Angel each family limits their request to one per year. This will help us accommodate and comfort more families each year. If your family has experienced the loss of twins, triplets, etc- please submit a request for each baby. 

We ask that each request comes from either the parents of the baby that has passed away or a family/friend that has received permission from the family to request an angel. We want to ensure that a Weighted Angel is not gifted to a family as a surprise. We understand that a weighted, stuffed animal may or may not provide comfort to every family and we want to be very mindful of that. 

Our Angel's weights are specific to our current animals. Our animals are named after our Board Member's babies that have passed away. The families of these babies have carefully picked out an animal that represents their child and we encourage you to learn more about each of these babies here. Because the Angel's are chosen in a very meaningful way, we are unable to change/customize your weight to other animals.

We are unable to accommodate requests for weights other than the birth weight of your baby. We do ask that you limit the requests to babies that passed away at less than 28 days old. Losing a child at any age is truly devastating and we are more than happy to provide you and your family with additional resources. If you are looking for additional resources, please send an email to weightedangels@gmail.com

 

Please, include ALL shipping information- including house/apartment number, street name, city, state, & zip code. If an address is incomplete, we are unable to send you your Angel. 

Please write your baby's birthweight as pounds and ounces. For example, 1 lb 3.2oz. We want to make sure that you receive the correct Angel for your baby but we are ultimately not responsible if you receive the incorrect Angel based off of the weight that was submitted on this form. 

While we do not charge for our Angels, we do recommend a donation to cover shipping. We understand that financially, it is hard right now.  Our mission is for no family to leave the hospital empty handed and the only way we are able to continue to fulfill individual requests each month are by donations to cover the shipping charges. Each Angel costs approximately $25 to create- not including shipping costs.
