Pam’s grief journey began on October 13, 2010. Her daughter Addie was stillborn at 40 weeks due to a blood clotting disorder, Lupus Anticoagulant Syndrome. Pam became a devoted member of Mothers of Angels, and she regularly attended monthly support group meetings, reached out to help other moms with their grief, and volunteered her time to make crafts and memory boxes. Addie has encouraged her to be strong and to be involved in pregnancy loss awareness, and Pam unhesitatingly stepped up to help form The Still Remembered Project. She has recently became a Stillbirthday Birth & Bereavement Trained Doula ®. She is honored to be able to help new mothers and families on their journey of grief.
