If you know  a couple who has been told that their baby will be stillborn or live just a short time after birth, please let them know about two programs for families like them in the Inland Northwest.

Forget-Me-Not at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital walks alongside families in this journey from the moment they find out.

The MISS Foundation, Spokane chapter, offers support after parents leave the hospital.

Here's the link to my Sunday story.
