The Patrick Palin Foundation, Inc.
The loss of baby is devastating. We want to support families during this trying time by providing support packages in remembrance of their baby.
The loss of a child is something a parent should never have to experience. It’s extremely difficult when that loss is a newborn. Remembering and forming a lasting legacy is extremely important. One way we help families do this is by sending them a plant in memory of the baby such as a rose bush.
Precious Baby Blankets
Blankets donated to the hospitals for nurses to use when presenting stillborn babies to their parents for that difficult time they are saying hello and goodbye. All blankets are handmade and in a few different sizes.
Certificate of Life
Many states will not provide a family with a birth certificate for a stillborn baby or after a miscarriage. Other states will only provide one if the baby is older than 20 weeks. We are now providing certificates for hospitals to fill in for families. For a $12 donation we will email a personalized certificate and donate another to a family in need. Take a look at our options.
