Who I Am

My name is Dawn Kalgren .  I live in Southern NH with my husband.  We have a daughter, a son, and a Siberian Husky.

I feel a calling to this ministry and empathize in a special way with Moms suffering the loss of their baby.  I too have had troubled pregnancies.  I have been pregnant five times and am blessed with two children alive and healthy.  I have suffered two early miscarriages (12 week and 9week) and a daughter, stillborn, whom we named Ashley.

My daughter Ashley inspires me and I do this in her memory.  Ashley was still born on September 14, 2001.  We found out that she had died on September 12, 2001.  We had nothing to dress her in and my mom went out and bought her a small pink doll dress.  It is my goal that no other family has to go buy a doll dress or anything else for their baby.  This is such a difficult time and I don’t want families to worry about these things.

I want there to be beautiful angel gowns available in every hospital and birthing center. Infant death is not something that most people think about -or even want to think about.  However there is a real need, and  I aim to do my part in helping as many families possible.
