The Center for G.R.A.C.E has helped so many families I know. When you enter the center it feels warm, healing and comforting. Thank you to Candy, Stephen and all of the wonderful volunteers.

Thank you Star Tribune for your write up on this wonderful cause and foundation! Missing GRACE Foundation and the Center for GRACE continues to be a place of remeberance, support and strength for myself and so many others that have lost a baby. The friends and contacts I have made volunteering and being active with this foundation are relationships that I hold and will always hold dear. I know many people who I talk to within this foundation and at events have had to walk the same road I walked 5 years ago when I lost my sons. It's an odd "club" to belong to when you lose a baby but many times when you talk with another bereaved parent there is a sense of knowing and understanding that you dont normally get from other support systems. It's an important part of moving forward and finding happiness and hope again. Thank you again and again for this wonderful article!! And Thank you to Steve and Candy McVicar for all their sacrafices bringing this resource to so many of us!
