SHARE will hold its annual Wings of Hope Angel Garden Blessing & Butterfly Release on Tuesday, June 4 at 6 p.m. on the campus of Edward Hospital, 801 S. Washington St. in Naperville. The Garden is located on the south side of the campus, near the Emergency/Outpatient Entrance.
The guest speaker for this year’s event will be Maliha Sayla, MD, an obstetrician-gynecologist with DuPage Medical Group, who’ll talk about the grief journey.
SHARE, now in its 30th year, is a support group for those who have experienced a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or neonatal death. Membership in SHARE is not required to attend. The event is open to all who have experienced a similar loss. The Garden opened in 2010 as a place that allows parents who have lost a baby to remember and celebrate their child’s life.
Features of the Garden include brick walls where parents can memorialize their baby, benches, fountain and plants that attract butterflies.
