• Our Promise

    String of Pearls was created to provide a nurturing and safe place for families as they navigate the path following a fatal prenatal diagnosis that will result in the death of their baby prior to, or shortly after birth. The path between grief and hope is a difficult place to walk; our desire is to provide guidance, compassion and practical suggestions as plans to honor the life of pre-born babies are crafted. Each life has a story worth telling and we are here for support as stories are lovingly written.

Larson

We felt very fortunate to have someone with both medical and personal experience to gently walk along side us through these unchartered waters.

On October 2nd, 2007 our son Larson was given a terminal diagnosis. He was not our 1st child, but it felt like he was because all of the decisions for his life were quite different then the ones we made for his siblings. Just 2 days after his diagnosis, we were given Laura’s information at String of Pearls. We felt very fortunate to have someone with both medical and personal experience to gently walk along side us through these uncharted waters. While the story of his life was filled with many unknowns….the support we had through String of Pearls made the journey more bearable. We are grateful for their emotional support as well as medical support. With the support of String of Pearls, Larson’s life was well honored and incredibly beautiful.
