If you are here because you too have lost a child,
we're deeply sorry and share your pain.
Know that you are never alone. 1 in 4 women experience
a loss through miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss.
Laken's Bears was inspired by the loss of our daughter
Laken Taylor Johnson. Laken was born extremely premature
at 22 weeks and 4 days on April 8, 2010 at
12:09 p.m. weighing a very tiny 12 oz and 11
After months of grieving and looking for support and resources
on our own, we found that giving back help heal our
hearts the most. We received a tiny empty memory box
when Laken was born.
We walked out of the hospital with very few items to remember
her by. We didn't want this for other families. We wanted to
help in some way. It was then February 28th of 2011
that Laken's Bears was created.
Our goal is to help keep families from leaving the hospital
empty handed and to help comfort families while making
those tough decisions at the funeral home by receiving
one of our Comfort Bags full of items to
remember their tiny someone by.
We run completely on donations
and without donations we wouldn't be possible.
Thank you to all of our supporters and vendors who
help keep us going!
