    My daughter has recently been deeply effected by the loss of a second baby and I would love to be able to get her this statue for her home. Please, please let me know if that is at all possible. It will be mothers day very soon and this would be perfect for her on this day. You could raise a lot of money for the miscarriage association through this item alone I am sure.
    I am desperately looking forward to hearing from you x

    This is so tragically beautiful. I miscarried a number of times before giving birth to our son March 29. Sadly he passed March 31st. This year will celebrate his 40th birthday. Things have changed these days but back then I only ever viewed him in his intensive care humicrib. Never ever to touch let alone hold him or even a photo. All I have are a few cards sent before his passing. Oh how I would love to purchase a small sculpture such as this which would be dedicated to his memory, painful as it is…..

    i would love to buy several of these if they make smaller copies. it is so touching. As a woman who had to go through 9 pregnancies to have 4 live births, it is so painful to watch my daughters go through this loss also.

    I saw the sculpture entitled “The Child that was never born.” Could you please let me know if this sculpture comes in a smaller version to put in my home? Also, if so, what would the price be? I lost a baby in 1993 and to this day, I carry that baby in my heart. I would be very interested in purchasing this for my home. Thank you!

    I miscarried two babies years ago. There was no thought or talking about it from the doctor or my family. This statue would be nice and a way to bless me with thoughts of my two little angels.

    I echo so many that has asked for this sculpture. I have lost 5. My first was so hard. I dreamed of that child while pregnant. I felt him leave the day he died. I felt him close. Just like this portrays. Please let me know if and or when available.
