Sponsored by NWA SHARE Parents Support Group, Inc.
Plans to bring the angel statue to the Northwest Arkansas area began in 2003. A small group of nurses working together to support bereaved parents in our area joined together to create a local chapter of Share for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support. These nurses have worked together to build NWA Share to be a relied upon source of assistance and compassion for bereaved parents during their time of need. Our vision is to bring this Angel statue to our area and create a peaceful garden setting with the Angel statue as the centerpiece where we may invite parents to come and remember their children and others to come and be inspired by the hope the statue brings.The Christmas Box Angel Statue was introduced to the world in the book The Christmas Box, a worldwide bestseller and hit television movie by author Richard Paul Evans. In the book, a woman mourns the loss of her child at the base of an angel monument. Though the story is mostly fiction, the angel monument once existed but is speculated to have been destroyed. The new angel statue was commissioned by Richard Paul Evans, in response to reports that grieving parents were seeking out the angel as a place to grieve and heal. The monument was dedicated on December 6, 1994-corresponding with the date of the child's death in The Christmas Box (Coincidentally, Dec. 6th is celebrated in many parts of the world as Children's Day). At the request of Sexton Paul Byron and Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Corradini, Salt Lake City donated the land on which the monument stands. The sculpture is the creation of a father and son from Salt Lake City, Utah, Ortho and Jared Fairbanks, and modeled according to the description in Evans' book. The face of the angel is that of Evans' second daughter, Allyson-Danica. If you look closely you can find on the angel's right wing the word "HOPE"
