On October 8th of every year a sweet little family celebrates the birth of a boy.
Their boy. Their son. Their brother.
Their son who they long to hold and long to know.
Their brother who they never really knew but somehow love.
On October 8th, we celebrate life. We celebrate this gift from God.
We celebrate this sweet boy who blessed our lives in unbelievable ways, far beyond his 6 weeks here on earth.
What Is The Birthday Project?
The AadenSage Birthday Project was started as a simple way to bless mamas and daddies who are hurting. To remind them that their child matters. That their loss is not forgotten. And that their little one is Forever Loved.
We launched this idea on October 8th 2013 and over the past two years we have sent gifts to more families than we could even count. As I stood in line at the post office with hundreds of packages to be shipped, my heart overflowed at what a gift it is to bless others in the midst of their grief. My prayer was that those gifts would arrive on the perfect day, the hardest and most loneliest of days and in the midst of their grief they would sense a Father who loves them deeply.
How Does The Birthday Project Work?
Simply submit the name of someone you know that is currently experiencing such loss or has experienced such loss in the past here.
We will send them a print and note reminding them that their little one is never forgotten and is forever loved.
The artwork is especially amazing as I had a bit of help from Aaden’s brothers and sister. And the best part is, you get to choose your favorite color.
Submissions for the AadenSage Birthday Project will begin on Aaden’s Birthday, October 8 & end on November 15.
