Almost two decades have passed since families and parents in the Seward community recognized the lack of support for grieving parents.
In 2002, Heartfelt Connections was born.
At the time of unimaginable loss, parents are adrift adjusting to life without their children and are emotionally overwhelmed. Realizing parents often don't know where to turn for help, grieving parents themselves, wanted to be there for those who needed support.
Heartfelt Connections Grief Support was established in 2002 to support parents whose child has died.
In 2012, the Heartfelt Children's Memorial was a dream to create a place where children would be remembered and honored as they left this earth too soon.
Humble beginnings gave way to greater opportunities through generous donations and fundraisers. The Memorial was dedicated in the Spring of 2015. Children from across the United States and other countries are honored and remembered. Connections and the Memorial are maintained by loving parents, friends and a Board of Directors.
