Here is what others have said about the impacts of this gift:
"When my daughter lost Kinley I looked for something special to give her and something she could keep... the memory box with scrolls was the perfect thing! She was absolutely in awe when she received it. She couldn't put into words what it meant to her. But I have to say for me the kind words from Meribah who makes these meant so much to me! She makes these boxes with true caring and compassion which makes them even more special. Thank you Meribah for your kindness!"
"This item was sent as a gift directly from seller. So I didn't get to see it in person. The gift receiver relayed how much he he really loved and enjoyed this gift! Seller has great communication and I felt she truly cares about the items leaving her shop."
"I have to say I was a little nervous to send this to my friend with the loss of her new born but Meribah told me her story and how these quotes gave her some comfort with her loss and I was so touched and it made me feel like I was doing the right thing. The box and quotes are beautiful and unique and I appreciate Meribah's advice and kind words."
"Thanks so much! I got a beautiful letter from my aunt yesterday. Thanks for using a heartbreaking time in your life to help others. I'm an ob/gyn so I feel for your loss - it makes our job so difficult. Your gift will always be appreciated."
♥ Baby Loss is a subject near and dear to my heart. In June 2012, my identical twin girls - Gwendolyn and Gabrielle - were born early at 33 weeks. My precious Gwen was stillborn and our sweet Gabry survived. These message scrolls are prepared in honor of my Gwen and those babies who will be remembered and loved forever in our hearts. ♥

After I lost one of my identical twin girls in June of 2012, I found that many people just didn't know what to say to me, so often times they said nothing at all or maybe something that was even a little hurtful, like, "You can always have another baby".
I started collecting comforting quotes to help me through my grief.
The Baby Loss Scroll Box is a collection of those quotes - many of the quotes come from prominent people who have lost babies.
With this gift, you will be saying, "I will always remember your baby. I might not have the right words, but I am thinking of you."
There is incredible comfort and healing that can come when our friends and loved ones remember our babies with us - they are always in our hearts!
