Love Never Ends

1 Corinthians 13:8

One of the most challenging, emotional and difficult times in a person’s life can be enduring the death of ones’ baby or child. All the hopes and dreams the parents had for their baby are gone in a heartbeat. In its place is a world divided into the “before” and “after” that parents must learn to navigate. In the short time parents may have with their baby lives all the love and memories they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

The Haven Network, located in Rockford, Illinois, was founded in 2004 to provide support, programs and services to moms, dads and families enduring the death of their baby. We provide immediate and long term support for families experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or stillbirth as well as families who have received a lethal diagnosis for their baby, SIDS and early infant death.  The Haven Network provides immediate in hospital care and services including baby care, memory box making, and professional photography of baby and family. Long term support includes well-checks, in person and online support group and individual and family grief counseling.

Additionally we have a certified birth and bereavement doula and chaplain on staff. Our doula can provide non-medical birth support to families who request such and our chaplain can provide spiritual support at any time.

Walk In Sunshine

May you always walk in sunshine

And God’s love around you flow,

For the happiness you gave us,

No one will ever know.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you did not go alone,

A part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

A million times we needed you,

A million times we cried,

If love could have only saved you,

You never would have died.
