A West Texas organization is meeting moms at a time when hope seems lost after losing a baby.

Hope Mommies is a non-profit ministry offering support, friendship and fellowship during a devastating time.

The women create Hope Boxes and fill them with a Bible, devotional and a few comforting personal care items.

 “Each box is made in honor of a baby that is in heaven by a Hope Mom who has had to say goodbye to their baby.”

Brooke Schuelke is the president of the West Texas chapter. Some of the boxes made, bare her babies name.

“I personally know this ministry is amazing. I lost my first born daughter, Blaire Nicole when I was 37 weeks pregnant,” Schuelke said. 

The Hope Boxes are given to mourning mothers who’ve lost a baby at any age from conception to 2 years old.

“Just something that the moms can walk away from the hospital, many of them are walking away without their babies,” she said. 

A token of support when an important piece feels taken.

And now mother’s who once received a Hope Box are now making Hope Boxes.

“Her life if being used for good, to help others,” Schuelke said.

Hope Mommies is active on social media and meet once a month at different locations to put together boxes.
