A Year in The Life of Stillborn Still Loved Foundation 2023

We want to thank every single person who has supported us in our mission to help honor babies taken too soon and to help grieving parents feel less alone. We are determined to leave no baby behind and to spread awareness for pregnancy and infant loss. We couldn't do anything that we do without your support. It truly means so much to us and we know that it means the world to you as well.


This year our foundation made a lot of strides and accomplished so much!


This year...


We recruited 37 Angel Ambassadors. We haven't officially launched our program as we're still trying to have one ambassador in all 50 states but we are working on the details. Our Angel Ambassadors will be helping us spread awareness and fundraise for grief boxes that get donated to their local hospitals. Thank you to our Angel Ambassadors and if you're interested in becoming one, please reach out!


We spoke at the 2023 Houston Methodist Baby Remembrance Event. We got to talk about what pregnancy and infant loss is like and how we use the love we have for our babies to honor them and other babies as well.




Our annual No Baby Left Behind virtual awareness walk logged 12,500 miles! Thank you to everyone who participated in this important annual event.



We donated 96 grief boxes! These boxes go directly to loss parents that have just lost their precious baby. It's filled with memorial items and resources to help them navigate their new reality. Thank you so much to everyone who sponsored a box in honor of their baby and to those who purchased items off our Amazon wishlist. In 2024, we will be changing some of the memorial items but the goal is to donate 200! If you would like to sponsor a box, please reach out!



We did our first annual toy drive for the 2023 holiday season. We donated 129 gifts/toys to children in need. They were divided up between Arrow Child & Family Ministries and Texas Children's Hospital-The Woodlands. The toys were purchased and donated in honor of babies gone too soon.



This year we honored 219 babies on our Annual Remembrance Christmas Tree. We're having an issue downloading the form from Google to be able to make an image but we're working on it!



Again, thank you for all of your love and support. Together we can spread awareness, honor our babies gone too soon and help others feel less alone.
