Each life, no matter how fragile or brief, forever changes the world.
About Mikayla’s Grace
Mikayla’s Grace was started by Mike and Melissa Terrill in March of 2011 and is inspired by their two babies. Mikayla’s Grace is our way of giving back to our community, and keeping our babies’ spirits and memory alive, while helping other families. Our goal is to give comfort and support to parents who find themselves in the stressful situations we were in.
Since 2011 Mikayla’s Grace has donated 431 Angel memory boxes, 420 NICU care packages, 50 Christmas NICU care packages, 310 Baby Loss Comfort Packages (for early pregnancy loss less than 16 weeks), 400 baby blankets, and 400 gowns with matching booties and hats to hospitals in Wisconsin.
Our Mission is to support families with a baby in the NICU (neonatal ICU) and those who experience the death of an infant at hospitals in Wisconsin by providing NICU care packages and angel memory boxes that offer both practical and emotional support for the parents. We also provide Baby Loss Comfort Packages for women who experience a miscarriage at the hospital, in addition to other support for bereaved parents.
1 in 4 women experience a pregnancy loss in their lifetimes.
In 2013, 10.5% of babies born in Wisconsin were premature — that is, born before 37 weeks’ gestation. Learn More
October is the nationally recognized month of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness. Each October we host an event called The Forever in Our Hearts Remembrance Day to honor families who have lost babies through pregnancy, stillbirth, or in early infancy. Our Fourth Annual event will be held on October 18th, 2014. Learn More
