Remembering Cherubs is a 501c3 nonprofit organization on a mission to provide emotional support and educational guidance to mothers and their loved ones following pregnancy loss.
As many as half of all pregnancies may end in loss. Yet, following loss, few resources exist to guide mothers on the journey to wellness. Remembering Cherubs addresses this problem by bringing together pregnancy loss support resources in one convenient space. This is accomplished in three main ways:
Partnership - We partner with grief support groups to provide a community of support to those grieving, at no cost.
Guiding tools – The Remembering Cherubs Loss Support Toolkit is a resource packed with educational and emotional-support tools for mothers following loss.
Self-Care Events – We host educational events centered on mental, physical, and emotional wellness following loss.
We aim to be the go-to source for pregnancy loss resources in the state of Michigan.
Our vision is to fill empty arms from pregnancy loss with tools to support overall healing.
Monica Anderson is the Founder and Executive Director of Remembering Cherubs. After pregnancy losses 22 years apart, Anderson found few resources to help navigate the emotional journey."From my greatest pain, I was inspired to create Remembering Cherubs. I felt compelled to do something that would ensure women have the support and guidance they need through what could be one of the most challenging times in their lives," says Anderson. "Creating this organization was my act of service and a labor of love."
Remembering Cherubs' startup work began shortly after Anderson's September 2018 loss. Within months, Remembering Cherubs' Board of Directors had been formed and Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws were adopted. We officially became recognized as a nonprofit corporation by the state of Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs in April 2019. On April 25, 2019, we received tax exempt status under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3).
