The very first boxes of hope

The very first boxes of hope

I cannot even begin to tell how very excited I am to be able to -finally- share this with you. In my journey around the web I found out about these beautiful boxes I could create to donate to other families going through the same terrible loss we did. It brings me great comfort and…
