The Edward Foundation and SHARE hosted the annual Wings of Hope Angel Garden Blessing and Butterfly Release on June 10 at Edward Hospital in Naperville.
The garden, near the hospital’s south entrance, is a place where parents, who have experienced the loss of a child through miscarriage, stillbirth or death in early infancy, can memorialize and celebrate their child’s life.

SHARE is a support group for those who have experienced a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or neonatal death. Members of the Edward SHARE group meet from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. on the second Wednesday and fourth Tuesday of each month in the Edward Hospital Education Center (Naperville), and from 7:15 to 9:15 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at the Edward Plainfield Outpatient Center, 24600 W. 127th St.
