Bodie’s Boxes

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 with him during the few hours we were in the hospital after he was born. In hindsight, there were many things we wish we would have known about and done, such as taking pictures with every family member who visited, taking videos, giving him a bath, reading to him, taking a lock of hair, etc.

Our mission at Bodie's Light is to provide these ideas and items to families while in the hospital experiencing stillbirth, so they don't have to have these regrets.

Each box costs around $150 to make. Items include:

  • A book to read to the baby
  • A glass jar for a lock of hair
  • Two pocket bears, one to take, and one to leave with the baby if the family chooses
  • Three morse code bracelets, for two parents and baby, that read "Until we meet again"
  • A hand/foot mold kit
  • Clean touch ink pad for extra hand and footprints
  • A concise list of ideas to do in the hospital to make memories
  • A list of resources for after they leave the hospital
  • Avery's Garden coloring book and colored pencils
  • In Memory of You: A Guided Baby Memory Journal specifically curated for loss parents.
  • A $30 UberEats or GrubHub gift card
  • A handwritten card
