A service announcement...

I know this is not the "official" recognition that many people seek when they lose their babies...but I wanted to make note of a project that is near and dear to my heart that can help (even if just a little bit).

The Memories of Mariam Project (The MOM Project) provide free Commemorative Birth Certificates and free Recognition of Life Certificates (for where there is no "birth").

I personally volunteer my time to create these certificates (as well as the free mother's bracelets), and I can say that they are nice quality because all of us volunteers know the importance of these memorial items.

If you would like something to commemorate your lost little one(s), please visit our store, place an order, and drop me a comment or an email to let me know you've requested something and I will be sure to give you my personal attention.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Thank you Catherine for writing this post. I do have a memorial certificate for my son, (made by the funeral home) but none for my daughters.

The hospital didn't think it mattered...maybe someday, oh I can't finish this sentence.

Thank you, just thank you.

Oh, i didn't realize they did that! What a wonderful thing to do. There used to be a 'Shrine of the Holy Innocents' in New York that did that but they stopped for some reason. So i am very glad to see that people can still get one....i will pass on this information!

The Shrine of the Innocents still does it...but they send it via email and you have to print it out yourself. The MOM Project will send you an actual certificate via snail mail. Our certificates are more personalized than most I have seen too.
