Project Hope

The dream for Project Hope was born on the very night, we lost our sweet girl Faith Marie at nearly 23 weeks.

In a dark hospital room I held onto a box handed to me by one of the nurses. I picked up a little pink bear with angel wings out of the box, and right then I knew that one day, I would give that bear to my next daughter. It was hope to me in one of my darkest hours. 

A little over a year later, in November of 2010, our daughter Mia Glory was born. Months later, I would hold her and rock her in my arms with that little angel bear and each time I did, the Lord whispered into my heart about all of the other moms out there, who needed to know this same kind of hope. Who needed to know that there was a God who loved them and had a plan and a future for them and that saying goodbye to their sweet babies was not the end. There is hope.

I wanted to be able to minister to these women in some way, so I searched out the organization that donates these boxes to the hospital and found out about Threads of Love. This is a nation wide ministry that reaches out to many families in numerous ways including those who have lost a baby. These memory boxes are based completely off donations and hand decorated by volunteers.

I knew right away that I wanted to partner with them and collect boxes and items to be donated. Including little lovie bears like the one I was given. This in particular was special to me because it represented a future. Something that would be a memory of our sweet Faith Marie, that could also be given to our future baby.

That is where Project Hope comes in. I have such a heavy burden for this and I pray that Project Hope and everything it represents always points people to Jesus. I believe He's given us all a platform and an influence and I pray I use mine for His glory. To bring hope and shine his love in the darkest of moments

Project Hope decorates memory boxes, each special & unique, filled with sweet mementos for families who have lost a baby. The boxes are given to Threads of Love, who then distributes them to area hospitals in San Antonio.
