TURNED 3 YEARS OLD!

On December 21st, 2008 Share Southern Vermont Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support was incorporated by the State of Vermont!  The outreach began small, with lofty long term goals. Within one year we had a board of directors numbering six strong and talented bereaved mothers. Calls, emails and requests for support were overwhelming. The need in our communities was clear.

It is hard to believe just how much as been accomplished, how many lives have been touched in these three years. With memory walks, fundraisers, candlelight ceremonies, monthly meetings and so much more healthy grieving is happening throughout the state of Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond.

Cara Tyrrell, founding director of SSV and Patrick Cody of Ludlow Public Television worked together to produce a nine minute piece celebrating the journey of the last three years. Thank you to all who make this service possible.  Happy Birthday Share SV!
