"My Mom is a survivor,
Or so I've heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
When all others are in bed.
I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.
But like the sands on the beach
That never washes away... I watch over my surviving mom,
Who thinks of me each day.
She wears a smile for others... A smile of disguise!
But through Heaven's door I see
Tears flowing from her eyes.
My mom tries to cope with death
To keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows
It is her way to survive.
As I watch over my surviving mom
Through Heaven's open door... I try to tell her those angels
Protect me forever more.
I know that doesn't help her... Or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her... And show her that you care.
For no matter what she says... No matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
That time won't ever heal."
Acts For Adalyn Foundation was founded to help support toddler loss mothers. We have the ability to help the grieving toddler loss mother in ways that have never been available before. Acts For Adalyn will help the grieving mothers feel connected to a world that they suddenly find themselves questioning because nothing about what has happened to them makes sense. Our goal is to not only provide comfort through our signature bunny but also to help them see that they are not alone. Help them to come to understand that they can and they will survive this, that they will come to know a new reality. Sadly, this new reality is filled with more pain and heartache than can ever be described in words but we want the new loss mother to also see that there is still joy and beauty in the world around them.
Acts For Adalyn is made up of 3 loss mothers with 3 different loss journeys. It is our hope that we can use our experience to help the newly bereaved mother to feel more connected to a world that she currently feels very disconnected from. That we can help to provide guidance and comfort in their darkest time. The Foundation will provide the loss mother with a bunny. This bunny is a soft urn. The bunny has a zipper that runs down the back where an urn can be placed or a special sentiment of the toddler's. The bunnies are cuddly and so soft. The purpose of the bunny is to help provide the mother with a small way of feeling like she holding her child again. It's something for them to hold onto when their arms ache to hold their missing toddler. These bunnies cost $60 each and we want to help as many toddler loss moms as we can. We need your help to make this possible. Acts For Adalyn supports the sudden and tradgic loss of toddlers ages 1 to 4.
