July Newsletter

In June we celebrated our 6th full year of our online website www.MyForeverChild.com. When I started on this endeavor over 7 years ago, it was mostly for local bereaved parents we had met through our hospital and support groups. When I opened up the website, we were able to quickly reach a worldwide audience. Back then we could not have predicted how popular and successful our personalized memorial keepsakes and remembrance jewelry would be.

It has been an absolute honor and privilege to create the cherished mementos for both happy occasions and tragic situations. Through the years we've loved connecting one-on-one with our customers to make that special piece that will help them along on their particular journey. With the love and care put into every item, you can be sure that your keepsake will be of high quality that you will treasure for years. True to our original mission, a portion of every sale is donated to hospitals, support groups, and charitable organizations to pay it forward and help make a difference in other's lives.

Although we've grown exponentially over the last 6 years, I'm glad that we have stayed a small family owned and operated business of just my husband and myself. When you choose to place your order with My Forever Child, you are supporting an independent artist and small business, and we Thank You tremendously!!


{NEW PRODUCTS}

Petite Baby Bean Necklace- This is a smaller version of our original Baby Bean solid sterling silver necklace. Our exclusive "bean" pendant is a sweet way to remember a lost baby, especially when miscarried in the first trimester. Often, the early sonograms of a baby look like a bean shape. Many women refer to their babies early in the pregnancy as "Bean", "Tadpole", "Peanut", "Sprout",etc.

Petite Baby Bean Necklace


The petite sterling silver bean pendant is 11mm long x 8.5mm high x 3.5mm wide. Comes on a 16" sterling silver cable chain. You can select the optional chain extender to make the necklace longer.Limited quantities, only 20 pendants in stock.



Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss Healing Gemstone Bracelet {Back in Stock and newly Redesigned} Our Pregnancy Loss Healing Gemstone Bracelet is as symbolically rich as it is aesthetically beautiful.

Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss Healing Gemstone Bracelet

The gemstones included in this bracelet:

Stainless Steel Dog Tag-
with the very volatile silver and gold markets over the last several months, prices of supplies have been soaring. Unfortunately, I've had to raise prices on most items just to keep up with the increased costs. I've been searching for affordable priced yet high quality alternative metals. After trying out many different shapes and styles of stainless steel dog tags, I'm happy to have added these to the product line. More designs will be coming out soon with this new dog tag and other stainless steel jewelry.

Our new Stainless Steel Dog Tags are perfect for dads! Made from 316L stainless steel, these high quality tags are sure to please.

Stainless Steel Dog Tag


Larger than our sterling silver dog tags, these stainless steel dog tags measure 1 1/8inch wide x 1 11/16 inch high x 2mm thick. The large surface area can fit lots of personalized engraving. Will be engraved in Roman filled font.

Several options are available to add a necklace chain, key ring, or lanyard clip to attach onto a golf bag, laptop case, or brief case. The 2.4mm ball chain necklaces that coordinate with this pendant are made from high quality jewelry grade stainless steel, perfect for everyday wear.




{Also New} We just received in new Inkless Wipes and specially coated paper that we can send to you to make your own no-mess, no-fuss handprints, footprints, and fingerprints. This is perfect if you'd like to make custom engraved pieces with the prints from mom, dad, siblings, and even pets! Our new inkless wipe kits will be listed with our custom engraved handprint and footprint jewelry products soon.



{Also New} I have a new engraving machine and software that I took a leap of faith on a couple of months ago. I'm still not fully acclimated to all that this new machine can do. But I hope to bring you lots of new engraved jewelry and gift items in the coming months. Please feel free to email me if you have a special request for a particular design. I'm always open to new ideas and sometimes new pieces are based on customer requests.





As I've done for the past few years, I've put approximately 20 designs from the website on hiatus for the months of July and August. After the high volume of orders from Mother's Day and Father's Day, I'm ready for a much needed rest. I try to spend a little less time in the studio, and a little more time with my family. These designs will be available again in September. During the summer months, the best way to contact me is via email at info @ myforeverchild.com (remove the spaces).

Wishing you a safe and peaceful summer,
