Voices from our community

Our stories capture the strength and love of the people who give and receive Saul’s Light’s services. They speak to the many ways we lift each other up when we’re too exhausted to stand, and how we guide each other forward when it’s too dark to see the stars.

Nurse on behalf of bereaved family

“I am writing this on behalf baby C. and her family. The CuddleCot played a huge role in dealing with the death of their baby. They wished to spend as much time as possible with her before they left the hospital. These precious moments meant the world to them and every minute they got to spend with her counted! The mother said time and time again how grateful she was to have every minute with her. The baby stayed in her room until the funeral home came to pick the baby up a few days after she was born. The baby looked absolutely perfect because of the CuddleCot. The CuddleCot made a huge impact, and the family is forever grateful. I wish we had this a long time ago. Every hospital should have one.”

“I'm leaving a Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep session that was possible because of you guys. The baby passed last night, and they called around for photographers today. Because of Saul's Light’s CuddleCot, I was able to get some great images of a sweet boy that looked great. I just wanted to let you know that your work is making a difference.”

Parent on the NICU Fund

“I just wanted to thank you for your support while my daughter, Madison, was in the East Jefferson NICU. She was born on November 28, 2017, 6 weeks early. It was definitely nerve wracking while she sat in there for two weeks. It was nice to get a gift card and a helping hand during this time. God bless you and I pray that you continue to reach out to more families and spread your message of love.”

– D.B., NICU fund recipient

“Thank you for hosting such a wonderful workshop. It was really helpful to me to be around other mamas. It also made me feel strong. I haven't felt that in quite some time.”
