The Artemis Garden Fund
I created the Artemis Garden as a special place to honor the lives of our babies who were only known a short while, or perhaps not at all, on this side of the womb. While I do not ask for payment, for those who have been moved by the garden and wish to offer something, I've started this fundraiser for an organization called Helping after Neonatal Death (HAND) that has been supporting grieving families for 37 years.
More information about Helping After Neonatal Death (Hand): HAND was founded in 1983 in response to a lack of support resources to help parents cope with the death of their baby before, during, or shortly after birth. HAND is a volunteer organization composed primarily of parents who, themselves, have experienced infant loss. HAND serves two primary populations -- (1) parents and families, and (2) healthcare providers -- with its service offerings. For parents, our services are focused on providing support, and for heathcare providers, our services are focused on education and creating an awareness and sensitivity to the issues parents face around infant loss.
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
