~Angel of Hope in Northwest Arkansas Project~
 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"

You may wonder “Why the Angel ofAngel of Hope Picture Hope”?

The Angel of Hope represents HOPE for the future for bereaved parents, children, grandparents, sisters, brothers, the whole family. The HOPE that it represents is on such a larger scale giving anyone looking for a reason to find hope a place to come and look towards the HOPE of their future.

For bereaved parents, our HOPE is for our lost children, that they are in a better place, are happy, and we will see them and hold them one day. Our HOPE is for our other children, or for future children and grandchildren we may have.

I ask you to ask why not the Angel? Why not bring HOPE to Northwest Arkansas, to families, to bereaved parents, and members of our community. Why not give them a chance to look at the wings of this beautifully crafted angel statue and read HOPE in her wings, and have HOPE for our futures.

We, members of Northwest Arkansas Share, HOPE that you will consider approving the building of the Angel of HOPE Remembrance Garden in your quiet, beautifully scenic city.




 

Welcome to West Fork sign by city parkAngel of Hope in Northwest Arkansas has a Home! 

The City of West Fork has donated a location for the Angel of Hope in Northwest Arkansas.  The location is in the city park located by the West Fork of the White River.  There is an amazing scenic bluff line and tranquil sounds as the river runs along the bank.

The Angel can not appear by herself.  That is why we need your help in funding your construction and future care.
