This outreach provides memory boxes to families having suffered the loss of a baby during pregnancy. Boxes may be given at the hospital upon delivery, or by personal request. Boxes include a receiving blanket, memory journal, the book, “Mommy Please Don’t Cry, There are No Tears in Heaven,” washcloth and bathing accessories, sleeper and hat, photo album, ornament, bracelet, candle, hand/footprint kit and so many other carefully handpicked items meant to assist parents in capturing and delicately preserving the memories of their departed child.
Did you know that October is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month? The Missing Alexis Foundation hosts an annual Northern Kentucky Walk to Remember. This is a 1.3 mile memorial walk for anyone whose life has been touched by the loss of a baby through miscarriage, molar or ectopic pregnancy, prematurity, stillbirth, S.I.D.S. or any other form of antenatal or neonatal death. The Walk is designed to honor and remember those babies taken from their families far too soon. The 2020 Walk to Remember will be held on Sunday, October 4th. Mark your calendars now and plan to join us!
The ONLY support group of its kind here in Northern Kentucky, the HEARTS pregnancy and infant loss support group meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at the Florence United Methodist Church from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Anyone whose life has been touched by pregnancy or infant loss (and those who support them!) are welcome to attend!

An evening of dinner, dancing, raffles and silent auctions all benefiting the outreach offerings of Missing Alexis! Planning is already underway for our 2021 Gala - stay tuned for more info!
