Plates to share

So many plates have gone out since we are now servicing Baptist Little Rock, Children's, UAMS and St. Vincent's. We have received overwhelmingly positive response from the families and I hope to share a few of their stories. Firefly has been so awesome at working hard to get all the plates done in a timely manner. Since the holidays have begun, I have been going in and painting the plate rims for them to help speed up the process. It breaks my heart every time I have to paint another plate but it also makes me smile to know that these families have brought their plate in and they will have this precious gift for ever to remember their sweet little angels. Below are some pictures I took with my phone of some of the raw and finished plates.

This photo below is the back of the plate. Once the plate is painted they paint the donor's name on the back for the families. This is so important to me because I want all these families to know there are people out there that they don't even know that care for them. We are also doing in memory of and in honor of. People can buy a plate in memory of their baby or a friend's baby and their name would go on the back as well.

This is a raw plate that I was working on from home. Look at those tiny little feet.


This plate turned out so beautiful. The family lost twin boys. Their little feet were stamped at the bottom so there was so much space on the inside of the plate. Families can pay for extra painting. They chose to have the poppies painted on their plate along with Job 1:27 which say, "Blessed be the name of the Lord".



We can always use help with painting. The rim color is not hard but we need people who are artistic as the writing can be challenging. Please shoot us an email if you would like to be added to the painters list.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Customized Plates

We have had many mom's contacting us wanting a plate made for their precious baby. We are excited to say this can be done. All we need is a copy of the foot prints. We are so excited that we can offer this. To purchase a custom plate you will need to click on the custom plate tab on the right hand side. You can choose and extras that would like to painted on your plate. If you decide to just have your prints transferred you will still get to choose a color for the rim of the plate. Please feel free to send us an email if you have any questions at all.
Thanks, Sarah
