This foundation is simply amazing!! I met some of the most amazing women who have walked this same broken road we are on now and they have held my broken pieces together! There are just no words to describe the love, care and compassion this foundation has given my family and I.
The TEARS Foundation is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to compassionately assist bereaved parents with the financial expenses they face in making final arrangements for their precious baby who has died. Many of the founders and volunteers at The TEARS Foundation have experienced the loss of their own baby, and want to reach out in this way to support newly bereaved parents in their time of devastating sorrow.
This foundation is also another great foundation for bereaved parents! Tiffany Bowen and I had several conversations and her words from a mother who knows just how broken you are during this time was such a comforting feeling! She provided me with information that only a grieving mom who knows what it is like to lose a child can provide! Her words are etched in my heart forever. Thank you Tiffany for all you have done for my family and I. <3
