We want to thank everyone for the encouraging messages! Our mission is to provide sets of Weighted Angels to our local hospitals so they can be placed in the arms of newly bereaved families. Our goal is for NO family to leave the hospital with empty arms. We are so appreciative of your ongoing support for our unique mission and look forward to expanding our reach soon!
