Sophie’s Place is named after a sweet angel who was taken from her family much too soon.
Newborns In Need is made up of volunteers who are dedicated to providing babies with needed essentials. Special volunteers feel the responsibility of providing items for the little ones who do not survive. Many have faced infant loss and use this outlet to honor their own child; others wish to use their talents to offer comfort to a grieving family.
Tiny soft buntings for little ones under 22 weeks up to full-term bereavement outfits, Newborns In Need bereavement items are provided to families to dress their child and take a memory photo. These outfits are placed inside handcrafted, soft memory envelopes along with a small hankie, blanket or cap for the family to take home.
