Maddy's Memorial Fund

Hi Everyone- As most of you know, we lost our precious Madison Kathryn when Amy was 38 weeks pregnant.  She delivered our stillborn angel on September 3, 2015.  We miss our Maddy every single day and we made a promise to her that with every single breath that we take, we would honor her.  This is our way of honoring her this year.

As we approach her two year birthday, we wanted to raise money for two of the nonprofit organizations that have helped us survive her death.  

The first organization, GBMC Infant Bereavement Foundation, provided us with amazing support while we were in the hospital for the four days.  They also have remembrance ceremonies to recognize all of the baby angels.

The second organization is Gilchrist Kids.  They provide free counseling to couples, moms, dads, and family members of angel babies. We have used this counseling services for the past two years and have learned so much about grief and coping mechanisms. 

While we know that this is a gofundme account and not a formal non profit, you have our word that every single penny will be split equally amongst Gilchrist Kids and GBMC.  We plan on presenting these checks around Maddy's 2nd birthday.  Any donation...$5...$10, etc would be so much appreciated!!!!

We love you all so much and are incredibally grateful for all of the support over the past two years!  If you have any questions, please let us know!

Love,
Jimmy, Amy, Brody, and our Angel, Maddy MacFarlane

The box of special gifts that GBMC provided to us.  Each box costs approx. $50 and sadly, they give out these boxes multiple times a week.
GBMC provides a willow tree angel every single year during their annual remembrance ceremony. 

Below are the links to the two organizations that we will be supporting.
