Welcome to the Sadie Rose Foundation. We are an official non-profit 501(c)3 organization offering support to families and individuals who have experienced the death of a child, including through pregnancy loss and miscarriage. We are based in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
Regardless of how long ago or recent your loss, we welcome you as strangers no longer, but fellow bereaved families coping shoulder-to-shoulder in a life we never imagined for ourselves.
We offer support and assistance to anyone, regardless of race, religion or reason for loss.

Join us as we participate in The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candlelight Remembrance Ceremony to honor the memory of our children, Sunday, December 13, 2015 at 7 pm. Plan to gather by 6:30 at River Oaks Church in Harrisonburg (behind the old Shoneys.) Please feel free to bring pictures or mementos of your child/children to place on the remembrance table. We also encourage you to bring family and friends to celebrate your child with you and a snack to share following the ceremony.
Our service will consist of several readings, a song written and performed by Jessie Trainum, and a bereaved sibling dance choreographed and performed by Alaina Erbaugh and Taryn Zander. Anyone who wishes to do so will be invited to come forward and light a candle in memory of a child. They may also share their child’s name if they so choose. We will have a slideshow presentation with photos /names/dates of the children we are remembering together. To submit your child’s photo, name, and date, please send a jpeg file to email@example.com. If you would prefer, you may send a photo to represent your child, a teddy bear, an angel, a flower, whatever is meaningful to you.
On this second Sunday of December around the world at 7 pm in their respective time zones, bereaved families will be lighting candles to honor the memory of their children. This event initiated by The Compassionate Friends, creates an international 24-hour wave of light as a memorial to our children.
If you have any questions, please contact Regina at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-421-6458.
Please read for a rare opportunity for our local families! If you do participate, we’d LOVE some photos for the newsletter and maybe some thoughts about what this meant to you!
The following comes from Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport. ” I wanted to reach out to your organization regarding an opportunity with a non-profit organization called Fly-Hope-Dream. Like The Sadie Rose Foundation, this organization was founded after the terrible loss of a child with the goal of offering support, hope and once in a lifetime flight experiences. Fly-Hope-Dream is beginning a coast-to-coast journey on Thursday and we have been told they will be at the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport at some point this weekend (depending on how long they are at the first few stops) and hope to offer flights onboard a beautiful 1942 Stearman bi-plane to families in our community who have experienced the loss of a child. You can find more information at http://www.fly-hope-dream.org/and https://www.facebook.com/Fly.Hope.Dream. Interested families can contact Fly-Hope-Dream directly to reserve a flight at email@example.com.” You can also learn more atShenandoah Valley Regional Airport.
