Dreams of You, Dreaming Big, and How You Can Sponsor a Family

You may have heard of the Dreams of You Memory Books we provide for grieving families who face the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth, infant death and other childhood illnesses.

You may have even received one of these beautiful books, with an antique leather bound-look binder format so it is easy to add or change the book to match a parent’s unique beliefs, tastes, and wishes. It includes places for parents to journal the dreams they had for their baby, their journey of loss and healing, letters to baby, pages to record the baby’s statistics, memorial service, baptism, footprints, mementos, etc. Also included are inspirational poems and comforting scripture from the Bible, as well as the author’s personal story of loss, grief, hope and healing.

You may have heard how mothers and their older children have found Comfort in a soft, fleece bear. You may have held our Comfort Bear in your own arms as you ached for your sweet baby.

What you may not know, is that Sufficient Grace Ministries provides the Dreams of You Memory Book, Comfort Bears, and other materials FREE OF CHARGE TO ANY PARENT WHO COMES TO US. We do not charge families for our products and services and God has blessed our desire to continue to provide these services for grieving families.

In order to help cover the costs of the growing number of Dreams of You packages we are sending all over the country, we have developed a new sponsorship program. While several local hospitals provide our products for their patients (hospitals pay a suggested donation amount to cover the cost), we would like to get our Dreams of You products into the hands of hospitals all over the country! (O.K., maybe we’re dreaming big, but we have a BIG God!) Many larger hospitals would like to offer the products, but lack the funding to make that possible. We have developed a way for those wishing to donate to “sponsor” hospitals, families, or a certain type of product. You can help by sponsoring, if you are able. Another way to help is if you are willing to show the Dreams of You Memory Book to your local hospital, and/or find sponsors in your area.

Please click here for more information about how you can sponsor. And, as always, if you are a grieving parent and would like to receive ANY of our products or services, please just email us and we will get you what you need. Our services and products are FREE to families. We also have a new address for orders, so if you are ordering a product, please email: sgm.shipping@gmail.com.

As we have grown to the point where we have sent Dreams of You packages all over the United States, some to Canada, and even one to Singapore, our needs continue to grow. In order to meet those needs, we are hosting several events for Operation Support Sufficient Grace 2010…our annual fundraiser season. Please prayerfully consider helping to support these events and/or spread the word on your blogs. And…you can also help us spread the word about the Dreams of You Memory Books. We want people to know we are here. We want to reach out to more families. So, please consider sharing here or on your own blog if you have been blessed by a Dreams of You Memory Book…or by Sufficient Grace. And, if you do share, please let us know.

  1. I like the idea of sponsoring a family. It's something that other families can do to pass it forward.

  2. Kelly @ Sufficient Grace Ministries says:

    Pass it forward…exactly what I was thinking…

    Actually, the whole idea and even the words "pass it forward" came from one of the chaplains we spoke with at Mt. Carmel in Columbus. So…it's very interesting that you use those words. Not an accident, I imagine…=)

  3. Imagine that! :)

    Oh, and I posted about it and the events
