About Footprints for Faith
Footprints for Faith is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization based in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. We created Footprints for Faith in March 2009 in honor and memory of our daughter, Faith, 3 months after her birth and death. Devastated by the lack of resources and support our community offered, we decided to embark upon this mission so that other families would not have to endure such loneliness during an already tragic experience. The organization was founded and the Board of Directors is made up of families who experienced a poor prenatal diagnosis, stillbirth, or infant loss, including family members and friends who traveled this journey with their loved ones.
We offer a wide range of information, resources, and support. We offer one-on-one support via phone, email, chat, instant messaging, and a messageboard. Memory boxes, Recognition of Life Certificates, and bereavement support books for parents and siblings affected by the loss are offered free of charge to families who have received a poor prenatal diagnosis, or experienced a stillbirth or infant loss. We also have a variety of pregnancy and infant loss awareness items.
As Footprints for Faith expands, it is our desire to provide funding of burial and memorial programs, and funding for the research of medical conditions related to a poor prenatal diagnosis, stillbirth, and infant death, so that families have accurate and current information and resources available to them.
