On the morning following the birth and heart shattering goodbye to our baby boy, Scotty, my husband’s weary eyes met mine and made me promise that we would make something good come from this. Still in my hospital gown and trying to grasp the past 48 hours, I couldn’t see it. I couldn’t see anything good coming from my baby dying. But Steven was adamant and so driven to turn our heartbreak into a blessing for others.
In the weeks following it became clear that the number of resources for grieving parents was minimal and the support we so desperately needed was lacking. Our mission became evident and my husband’s initial drive of blessing others became mine too.
The Scotty Michael Foundation was created with so much love and a will to walk beside other grieving parents by providing support and love during the time they need it most.
