Mission of Greta Gives Hope
The mission of Greta Gives Hope is to provide financial and emotional support, particularly mental health resources, to families who have experienced the unimaginable loss of a child.
On July 20, 2017 I delivered our stillborn daughter, Greta Kathleen Milton. She was perfect. 10 fingers. 10 toes. A head full of thick, dark, and curly hair. After her death, we ran every test in the book. Something had to be wrong and I knew we would get an answer. But that’s the thing about life and God’s plan, you don’t always get what you want. Such is the case with us. We don’t know what happened with Greta – all the tests were normal or inconclusive. This was an unexplained stillbirth, something we came to learn is surprisingly common in the case of stillbirths.
Greta has had an incredible impact on our lives and those around us. She has shown us what tragedy is and what hope looks like. Since losing Greta, we have learned how important it is to take care of our minds. To seek out help and intervention to make us our best selves.
It can be extremely difficult to navigate the fog of grief after losing a child, but Greta Gives Hope will help guide other bereaved parents through the healing process. We want those suffering to get the help they need without the stress of finding out where to turn for help or how to pay. Greta Gives Hope will strive to provide the resources and support these grieving families need.
