Garden Visitors

The Garden of Hope continues to receive a steady stream of visitors since it's dedication service on June 14, 2009.  The second order of memorial plaques have now been mounted and the third group will arrive within the next month.  As we visit with guests visiting the garden, we find a variety of answers, but most come because they have lost a baby themselves or know of someone struggling with a loss.  Some guests walk quietly through the garden while others weep looking at the Hope sculpture or reading the names on the memorial plaques.  Everyone with whom we have spoken to or heard from, treasures the garden and has been blessed by its ministry.  To God be the Glory!
