Meet Scott and Jessica, the founders of Bodie's Light

Bodie's Rocks

While our son Bodie may not be able to travel the world on his own, he can with you. With their beginnings in Washington State, we have placed a few of what we lovingly call 'Bodies Rocks'.

If you find one, you can tag the location so we can place it on our interactive map. Then, you leave it for someone else to find (in a new place - as near or as far as you'd like to travel with it).

Bodie's Boxes: A Wonderful Idea & Special Gift Each box is specially curated with items to make the most of a terrible situation and a family's limited time with their baby.

When we were in the hospital with Bodie, we were not in the headspace to think of how to make memories. In hindsight, there were many things we wish we would have known about and done. Part of our mission is to provide these ideas and items to families, so they don't have to have these regrets.
