The Renew Through Sharing program at NCH also offers an online community for sharing, conversation and support. At right is a video filmed at our recent Renew Through Sharing event, the Spring Tea and Butterfly Release, held on Saturday, May 16, 2009. This was a very special event to honor mothers and fathers whose babies are remembered in their hearts, accompanied by a very special release of butterflies into the Renew Through Sharing Memorial Garden. We welcome you to join our community and attend other special events in the future.
