October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
In honor of the parents to those unseen but not unloved and in memory of their angels, we feel blessed with the opportunity to share with you the Angel Heart – Weighted Memory Heart Pattern.
Angel Hearts are fabric hearts, filled to weigh the exact amount of a baby at the time of their passing. Weighted memory hearts can provide comfort to parents as they keep fresh the memory of how it felt to hold their little ones. They fill empty arms and help soothe aching hearts by standing as a present reminder of the angels who left us too soon. Angel Hearts are also a way whereby friends, family, and strangers can reach out to say, “I will remember your angel with you. As you miss them, so will I. I will be there to hear you say their name, smile at their memory, and walk alongside you in this tragedy. I will love them with you.”
In short, Angel Hearts are a heartfelt effort to connect bereaving parents with the memory of their angels and provide an opportunity for supportive resources to reach out.
