What is an Angel Baby?

A baby that that was lost at any point during pregnancy, or even after birth.

What is the Angel Baby Mile?

The Angel Baby Mile is an opportunity to honor our lost babies.  A specific mile of the Fargo Marathon, on May 18, 2019, will be called the Angel Baby Mile.  Those interested in honoring a baby may sponsor a flower pot.  The flower pots will be placed along the side of the race course. The Angel Baby Mile is sponsored by Vance Thompson Vision and the flower pots will be from Baker Nursery (Baker Garden and Gift, Fargo, ND). 

Who can sponsor a flower?

The Angel Baby Mile is open to anyone who is interested in purchasing a flower pot to honor an Angel Baby.  If you have been impacted in anyway by the loss of a baby, I encourage you to proudly honor their precious souls by sponsoring a flower pot in their honor.

THANK YOU


Thank you to all who have chosen to honor these very special babies.  It is such a true testament of LOVE.

How do I get a flower pot sponsored?

The flowers are ordered on this website (angelbabymile.org).  Each flower pot will have Angel Baby's name on it and who sponsored it.  It is also an option to anonymously sponsor a flower pot.

What if Baby wasn't named yet?

If baby wasn't named they can be given any nickname you wish or can be left anonymous.  Ex: Baby G, Baby Greenwood, Pumpkin, etc.    

Do I get to pick which flower pot arrangement I want?

Yes!  You will be able to select your flower arrangement when placing your order.

Do I take flower pot home with me?

Yes!  Please bring your flower home with you and watch it grow and blossom over the summer.  If you are unable to bring the flower pot home with you for whatever reason we will be sure it blooms for you over the summer months.  

What if I can't attend the event?

That is ok! We would still encourage you to sponsor a flower pot in honor of your angel baby.  After the event is over all remaining flower pots will be taken care of and we will be sure it blooms for you over the summer months.      

Can I run the race?

Yes!  If you want to run the race instead of hanging out at the Angle Baby Mile that it totally acceptable.  Please feel free to make your way back to the Angel Baby Mile area after you finish your race.   

Story behind the Angel Baby Mile

Jules & Leni

The Angel Baby Mile was inspired by two sisters, Jules and Leni. I, their Mother, was not able to bring either girl home from the hospital. My heart broke and dreams shattered. Jules, the big sister, was born at 22 weeks with a conditioned called Anencephaly. This condition is not compatible for life outside of the womb. A few months after losing Jules we were blessed to have conceived Leni, the little sister. Leni had perfect development and growth. However, at 28.5 weeks little Leni's heart stopped beating. I love these two girls so much and am proud to call them my daughters.  I want to share them with others. Just like Moms of living children like to do.  


The Angel Baby Mile has been created for an opportunity for loss Moms, families, and friends to honor their Angel Baby(s). I want people to feel that they can and should share their precious baby(s). The mental and emotional struggle of trying to survive the loss of a baby is one of the hardest things a person will ever endure. It should not be a road walked alone. Community can help those grieving. I want to help build that community. Please remember that it is always okay to ask for help if you need it.  Sometimes our tomorrows do not look bright. Those are tough times.

 

Lets build a community that can help lift others when they are feeling weak.
