About Us

Who We Are

Remembering Cherubs is a nonprofit resource center serving those who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss, primarily in Detroit and southeast Michigan.

Our programs and
services connect grieving parents to
supportive networks, peer-approved guidance
tools, and community events.

We understand the need for ongoing support following a loss. We are unique in our approach, providing Support, Guidance, and Validation
and upholding the belief that each experience is valid––regardless of the nature of the loss.

Our Why

In Michigan, an estimated 23,000 miscarriages happen each year, and out of every 1,000 babies born alive, more than six die before their first birthday. Few resources exist to guide the process of grieving, healing, or steps to move forward. What little is out there is often scattered and hard to find.


We want to change that.

Remembering Cherubs brings together a diverse range of resources into one convenient space. Through partnerships and collaborations with community organizations, we aim to remove barriers to accessing support.

Our Beginning

Monica Sholar Anderson experienced the death of her infant son shortly after birth and had an unfortunate miscarriage 22 years later. She founded Remembering Cherubs to ensure others don't endure the lack of support she did. She has since dedicated her time to helping women and families cope with loss.


Monica is a nationally certified community health worker and a member of the University of Michigan Health System's Perinatal Infant Reproductive Loss (PIRL) Committee. She also serves on the Fetal Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) Taskforce with the Detroit Health Department.
