This year, several families served by The Haven Network sponsored our Forever In Our Hearts Dinner and Auction Benefit through a family sponsorship in memory of their baby.

The stained glass hearts were made by Mrs. Linda Lombardo of Cutting Edge Stained Glass Studio. Each person who was part of the family sponsorship was able to take one home as a keepsake not only of the event but of the sweet baby they were there to celebrate.

Every year, Mrs. Sandra Knabe makes a display with one candle bearing the name of each baby cared for by The Haven Network. Each candle has the name of each baby handwritten on it and is a simple, beautiful and poignant way to honor each baby.

Idajsha is the mom of one of the beloved babies we cared for in 2017. We first met her and her daughter I’yanna in the NICU. I’yanna was born too soon at 23 weeks and sadly passed away. The Haven Network was with Idajsha and I’yanna helping to create keepsakes and photograph their time together. This picture is of Idajsha and her beautiful and happy rainbow baby, I’viyanna born November 2017.

Love Never Ends
