They are called a A Heart To Hold, and that is exactly what they give you. They started this foundation in July 2011, after losing their son to stillbirth. The day after Abi and her husband lost their son, they received a heart weighted to the exact weight he was at birth from another infant loss mother.
What people that have not lost a child do not realize, is that a mother's arms ache to hold their baby. Our bodies do not know that we did not give birth to a live baby, so they do not understand why we are not holding our child. It is not just an emotional thing, your body really does ache. To have a pillow or stuffed animal to hold really helps...but to have something weighted the same as your child helps even more!! They picked a heart as a symbol of hope and healing.
Their heart helped them so much, that they wanted to pass it forward to other families that have suffered this loss.
A Heart to Hold also offers workshops to comfort other grieving families, and they have a Hearts From Afar Program. (where you can make hearts from your home or set up your own workshop.
