Dedicated to all the littlest angels

Dedicated to all the littlest angels

Campbell County Memorial Hospital Maternal Child Services is creating a special tree for this year’s Festival of Trees. Titled In memory of the littlest angels who left the biggest impression on our hearts, Maternal Child has invited all parents in the Campbell County, Wyoming community to add an ornament to this tree in memory of pregnancy or child loss.

“Every life counts,” says Dianna Moore, CCMH Maternal Child Lactation Coordinator. “For a mom, even if a pregnancy lasted a few weeks, it was still a child to them. And we want to help them remember that child’s life.”

Dianna personally lost a child at 16 weeks some 20 years ago, and has an ornament that will adorn the tree. "One of the services that I like best in Maternal Child is that we do honor every life by providing mothers who have lost a child with a certificate and other mementoes. We want them to know that their child's life matters."

Maternal Child Services will provide clear, fillable ornaments that families can decorate as they wish, or make their own to place on the tree. Helping Dianna with the tree is Ashley Hicks, Josie LeMaster and Carene Weinand. The tree is sponsored by Dr. James Price.

Contact Maternal Child Services at 307.688.2200 to pick up an ornament for decoration. Deadline to return the ornament is Monday, November 7.

The Littlest Angel Tree will be on display at Festival of Trees, which takes place November 18-20 at CAM-PLEX.
