Cornerstone of hope exists because, in this life, the unthinkable sometimes happens. A child dies before his parents. A husband or wife dies, leaving their spouse and children at a loss for how to go on living. A student dies, leaving a school reeling over the shock and sorrow. In your loneliness, you desperately need to give hope and connect with those who understand. When we are left without the smile and the touch of the one whom we loved so dearly, we need a hand to hold, to pull us out of the pit and the pain.

Photographs of stillborns and newborns who don't make it home from the hospital are usually very difficult to look at, and are usually the only image that the parents have of their child. Through this free service, our skilled digital artists work with a digital copy of your original, eliminating medical equipment, removing marks and bruising, even replacing the background if desired.

Newborns In Need is made up of volunteers who are dedicated to providing babies with needed essentials. Special volunteers feel the responsibility of providing items for the little ones who do not survive. Many have faced infant loss and use the gift of a wedding gown to honor their own child; others wish to use their talents to offer comfort to a grieving family.
Tiny soft buntings for little ones under 22 weeks up to full-term bereavement outfits, Newborns In Need bereavement items are provided to families to dress their child and take a memory photo free of charge. These outfits are placed inside handcrafted, soft memory envelopes along with a small hankie, blanket or cap for the family to take home. Because of brides who donate their wedding dresses our volunteers are able to provide for hospitals across the US.
