Steps for Samuel is a 501c3 project located in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Our mission is to Honor Angels, Aid Families and Educate the Community. Our goal is to help aid families and friends affected by Pregnancy and Infant Loss. We became a non-profit 501c3 in the Spring of 2019. Prior to this the project was ran exclusively off private donations for six years. We would like to thank all of you who have helped make this possible. As a non-profit we are always accepting donations to expand our mission.

Because as many as half of all pregnancies end in miscarriage (marchofdimes.com, 2013). The March of Dimes (2013) also states that one in 160 pregnancies end in stillbirth. SIDS is the leading cause of death for infants between one month and one year (marchofdimes.com, 2013). These numbers do not account for our babies that pass due to TTTS, low birth weight, accidents and other causes Often times family members feel this tragic loss alone, since society as a whole is uncomfortable with infant deaths. Many people don't know what to say. It is time for us to rally and have our babies voices heard!
