Father’s are often forgotten when we think about those who are grieving the loss of a baby. Yet, their grief is no less than that of a mother, different, but not less.
Similarly to my sentiments for Mother’s Day, “it isn’t about the gift — it’s extravagance or monetary value— instead it’s about someone remembering and affirming” that he is a father, despite his empty arms. The gifts carefully curated above will speak volumes of love. The personalized gifts are perfect for remembering due dates, baby names, birth details and even tiny photos tucked in a keychain. I especially love the print from Gracelaced (#1) with the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.” Such a meaningful quote for someone walking through pain and suffering, clinging to promises of hope and restoration.
Pair any of these gifts with one of the Father’s Day cards from The Morning Shop and you will bring healing to a hurting father. (The cards are available as instant digital downloads so you can print at home!)

My story. It’s really your story. A piece of me will never be here, never get checked off the list, never be seen as complete this side of heaven. You were so wanted. If I could tell you one thing above all else, you were wanted and loved and needed. From the moment I got […]
