This wonderful lady with the help of "Jesses' grant" found my mothers two babies graves, she had lost many years ago, and had the grave stones made for them, now my mom is able to visit these graves and grieve without being ashamed.

TEARS sent Lilly a moses basket made by a strangers own hands lined in pink satin, with a soft baby yarn blankie, handwritten note including prayers. This is the most love I have ever received from strangers, as we share a common sorrow.

When we lost our son the Tears Foundation provided a beautiful Moses basket and hand made blanket for our son to rest in. Seeing our son in such lovingly made items brought so much peace to my husband and I. Thank You!!

What is more difficult than burying an infant? And who is less prepared for those expenses than new parents? TEARS serves grieving families financially and emotionally. Sarah deserves your support!

12 yrs ago this Sunday (May 8th) our son and DIL lost their son, Ben. 4 days later he was born. He never made it here but worked miracles in several ways and has continued to affect our lives. There was no TEARS then - glad to see it now.
