This family needs your help to get a keepsake urn for their baby, Riley, they lost half way through their pregnancy.

I just want to say how grateful I am today. I never thought this would actually work, and as of the first night we have had $70 in donations. I am literally in tears because of the warm, kind words and actions of those who have donated and of those who haven't but instead have said the most wonderful things. Thank you all so much and I am convinced now that we will meet our goal because of the special people out there willing to extend their help in helping someone else. God bless you all!

In January of this year, my husband and I were expecting a child. We were 4 months into our pregnancy when we arrived at our last prenatal appointment. That day changed our lives. Unexpectedly we found out our baby's heartbeat had stopped. We were in shock, and still are today. We were able to have our child cremated through our local funeral home, but we have been unable to purchase a permanent keepsake for our baby, and that is what brings me here. It was suggested by a friend of mine to come here and just try this and to see if it helps us be able to do what we feel we need to do in order to get closure. Due to financial hardships and thousands of dollars in doctor bills, we have been unable to afford these simple things to honor and recognize the short life that our baby, Riley had.

The following links are to what we had in mind of getting for our baby. The donation amount includes both pieces of keepsake urn jewelry, shipping, engravings, and fees from receiving donations through the site.

This link leads you to the urn bracelet that my husband would like to get:

This is the necklace that I would like to get:

If you are able to donate any amount, it would be greatly appreciated.

If we meet our goal and are able to purchase these urns for our baby, I would forever and always be eternally grateful to all of you who have helped us.

Any and all monies that are above our goal will be donated to our local "Little Red Door" organization that helps women who are in need of mammograms and don't have insurance.

Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my story and God bless.

Cheri S.
