Remember Boldly

Birthday Ideas

After our children leave us, it can be difficult to celebrate that pivotal day that they first blessed us, especially if it was also their last. However, what better way to celebrate your special child’s existence than by doing something purposeful on their day of birth? Here are some ideas to celebrate the day they were born:

  • Random acts of kindness
  • Make a cake for your family
  • Donate gifts to a family in need
  • Go to the movies or other family date
  • Write a letter to them
  • Release butterflies
  • Blow bubbles
  • Take the day off and be with family
  • Scrapbook
  • Make a video of photos/videos
  • Donate to a cause in memory of them
  • Light a candle
  • Plant a tree/flowers
  • Hold a charity drive in their name
  • Make or buy jewelry
  • Participate in a memory walk in their name
  • Speak their name

Arrows of Hope

Awakening Grace has chosen to serve families experiencing the tragic loss of a child during pregnancy and infancy by sending love and hope in the form of a care package. Our care packages are fondly referred to as “Arrows of Hope” as we like to think we are sending out a bit of hope to each family that receives one. Each Arrow includes the following:

  • birthstone charm bracelet
  • handmade “hope” keychain
  • lotion
  • lip balm
  • journal and pen
  • candle
  • Kleenex
  • snacks (including Stroopwaffels for our Dutch origin)
  • handmade wedding dress bear
  • recommended booklist

To recommend someone to receive or something to add to our Arrows of Hope, please contact us at
