Thank you to all who attended this year’s Remembrance Ceremony at the Nora Madelyn Fund for Infant and Child Loss memorial in the healing garden at Providence Newberg Medical Center. We hope that the ceremony and butterfly release provided our guests with peace and comfort as we all honored and remembered our beloved babies.
