We are often asked what's the most touching story thus far in our five years of running Abby's Gift. There are many. The most recent is Simon.

We received a call early one morning from a NICU nurse in Texas. This was her first time contacting our foundation so she was very timid in her questioning of our services but now we know why. It was complicated, indeed.

A mother had given birth to a 41-week baby boy on July 30, 2016. She intended to give him up for adoption but made no plans to move in this direction before the birth.

It was hot. We were stinky. But it didn't rain!

Kuddos to BlackHawk Construction and Pipeline Maintenance and Texas Landowners Association for a top-notch event. We were blessed with great people, a great turnout, great weather, great bands, great raffle and auction items donated by great people, great food, and a super great time! So many families will continue to be blessed through Abby's Gift.

Thank you, with all the love our hearts can hold--
Clyde, Melinda, Ashlin, and ALL the rockstar family, friends, and volunteers. :-)

Grief comes in may forms and in many ways...

  • If you know anyone that has lost a child and think they are grieving too long, please don't judge.

  • If they speak the child's name often and it makes YOU uncomfortable, please look at your own heart.

  • If you say "but she/he was just a baby", remember that the "just a baby" was carried in the womb by a momma and loved by a family just as much as any other child in this world. Age is meaningless in a parents heart.

  • If you know anyone that has experienced a miscarriage or stillbirth or only minutes with their child, please don't judge and think "well, they really didn't know the child". The child is known.

  • If your...
