Holiday Ordering Dates

UPDATE 12/23/10- all orders placed by 6pm on December 22nd and custom engraved handprint/footprint jewelry orders placed by December 17th HAVE SHIPPED and are en route to their destination. We are now closed for Christmas Vacation and will be reopening on Monday December 27th. Merry Christmas!


November 10th will be the last day to place an order of Custom Engraved Handprint & Footprint Jewelry for guaranteed Christmas delivery (in the USA only).

December 1st is the last day to order for guaranteed Christmas delivery of personalized, engraved, and hand stamped jewelry (in the USA only).

Please note that we can only guarantee Christmas delivery within the United States. We can't predict delivery dates on International shipping, and this time of year may require extra shipping time to reach it's destination.

After the dates noted above, you may possibly receive your order before Christmas, but it is not guaranteed. Due to the very high volume of orders received during the holidays, our lead time increases 1-2 weeks above the normal processing time stated in the product descriptions. When placing your order, you may want to choose the Express Shipping option to expedite delivery once your order is made and ready to ship. Every year we have numerous last minute shoppers who need to have their custom handprint and footprint, or personalized jewelry item before Christmas. These will be subject to a rush processing fee if we are physically able to accommodate their request. Please place your order by the stated cutoff dates if you definitely want it to arrive before Christmas. You can use the Add to Wish List feature when browsing our website products and then email your Wish List to others. Please also inform the email recipients of the cutoff dates as well.

If you are ordering one of our unique keepsakes after these stated deadlines, you can print out a Gift Presentation Card to let the gift recipient know that a handcrafted treasure is on it's way.

While we love working individually with customers to create the perfect keepsake just for them, customized orders (specialty charms, different engraving layouts, and products not listed on the website) can not be accepted during November and December.

Also, we will be closed for vacation and out of the office from Monday, November 1st through Sunday, November 7th. We will be back in the studio and catching up on orders on Monday, November 8th. Any engraved or personalized orders placed after Wednesday, Wednesday October 27th will not be shipped until we return. I will do my best to ship out all simple orders before we leave.

You can still place online orders during November 1 - November 7. They will be completed in the order that they are received in, when we return. Express orders can not be shipped until after November 9th.


Thank you for your continued support and patronage of My Forever Child. We are truly appreciative, and we wish you peace, comfort, and strength for the upcoming Holiday season.

October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. My Forever Child has been donating the Always in My Heart lapel pins to numerous organizations that are distributing them to newly bereaved parents. We also make frequent monetary donations to our favorite pregnancy and infant loss charities in order to fund research and support to those touched by infant loss.


October 15th is the Worldwide Recognition Day. Please light a candle at 7pm on October 15th. Leave it burning for at least an hour, so that there will be a continuous wave of light around the globe in remembrance of our precious little ones, gone too soon.

IAmTheFace.org is an October 15th, National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day campaign. 2,000 women in the US alone lose a baby… every single day. Our goal is to raise $2,000 for the 2,000 women who lose a baby each day. Take a couple of minutes to upload your photo and donate $1 to their campaign.

Miscarriage, Stillbirth, and Infant Loss Resources- I have a large number of online resources listed here. I continuously add more as I discover them. Do you know of a website that should be listed here? Please list it in the comments section of this post, or use the Contact Us form Here.


In order to raise awareness during this special month (and beyond) I am running a new Free Giveaway each week in October, starting on Mondays and ending on Fridays. The giveaways will be run on our Facebook page, as that allows for the most flexibility and interaction with our "fans". If you haven't already done so, please head over to our Facebook page and click on the "Like" button on top. You'll be subscribed to all the latest happenings at My Forever Child.
