Last month, we welcomed four families to The Milk Bank for our bi-annual Bereavement Family Day. The Eicher, Evers, Hill, and Burriss families gathered in remembrance of the babies they have lost by adding their engraved gold leaves to the Garrett's Gift memorial tree.
Jackson Evers got the chance to choose a spot for his late baby brother's leaf. He happened to find his own name near the bottom of the tree and asked his mother Sarah to put Oliver James beside it so he can "be next to his brother forever."
We are grateful for all mothers and their families who donate breastmilk after losing their little ones to gain healing and help vulnerable infants in need. We honor the memory of Austin Eicher, Oliver James Evers, Vivian Hill, and Stella Ann Burriss.
