Mira’s Banners of Love
In loving memory of Miriam “Mira” Ferrara
Mira’s parents received a life-limiting diagnosis and was supported through our Palliative Care Program. In an effort to find healing and support others, they create personalized banners for other palliative care families in our nest to use in their complimentary maternity photographs.
Cuddle Cots for Cash
In loving memory of Cash Wdzieczkowski
A local family raised more than $10,000 to purchase cuddle cots for two hospitals in NJ and PA. Their ultimate goal is to place a CuddleCot in each state at a hospital in need to spread their son Cash’s love around! At our Wave of Light event, Cash’s parents shared how much value the CuddleCot on their experience and it allowed them to spend days parenting him before saying goodbye.
S’more Love for Rylan
In loving memory of Rylan Walsh
To honor Trisomy Awareness Month and Rylan’s birthday, the Walsh family hosts an annual fundraiser in March to support Three Little Birds’ Palliative Care Program. Rylan’s mom craved s’mores throughout her pregnancy and each year they sell cute s’mores packages in his memory to give back. Their family and friends have supported this fundraiser and it has grown each year!
In loving memory of Calvin Mayer

In loving memory of Cade James Miller
Cade’s mom uses her talent and love for her Cricut machine to create customized vinyl decals for loss families to proudly sport on their cars as a reminder that our baby’s love goes with us wherever we go!

Mother's Day Spa Retreat
In loving memory of Mary Tarini
Thanks to a generous donation from Mary’s family, we are able to host our spa retreat for new loss moms again this year! Our first retreat connected six loss moms together, many of which have developed friendships that extend beyond loss and are now supporting each other in our closed Facebook Nest, Mama Bird Healing.
In loving memory of Xander Koines
Xander’s mom is a craft and plant enthusiast and she saw how the two go hand in hand while healing from infant loss and wants to spread her son’s love and memory with all things plant related. She currently creates items for our Etsy store, hosts fundraisers and wants to focus her efforts in finding support for young siblings experiencing perinatal loss as well as facilitating our Craft & Heal Support Events.
