• 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.

Stella

I hesitated contacting Laura because I felt that would make it too real and there was a tiny part of me that thought they were wrong.

When my husband and I were given the devastating news that our daughter Stella had a chromosomal abnormality that was “incompatible with life”, we were in disbelief. I hesitated contacting Laura because I felt that would make it too real and there was a tiny part of me that thought they were wrong. I am so thankful my doctor gave me the information for String of Pearls and that I finally got the courage to call Laura. Because of  String of Pearls, we were able to honor Stella’s short life and were provided with the emotional support that we desperately needed. String of Pearls has made this difficult journey more bearable and we are forever grateful for Laura and her amazing organization.
