About Us

When a family loses a child, we provide validation, empathy, and hope through a specially-crafted care package and personal connection. 

Losing a child is the nightmare that no one ever wants to go through. We have walked in those shoes though. We know it's hard, and that doesn't even begin to describe it. Every day can be a battle between choosing to smile or frown, laugh or cry, stay in bed or get up and do something. It's a never-ending journey. But you can make it, and we're here to help you do that.

Sent from Heaven gives a care package to a family when they lose a child through miscarriage, illness, accident, failed adoption, etc. to validate their loss and connect with them personally. This care package is crafted by other families who have lost a child to provide empathy, hope, and encouragement during this shared-crisis experience. We also desire to help families connect to a local Evangelical Christian church and any other services the families may require, like counseling. Additionally, our website includes stories from families who have lost a child to help others grieve and connect with one another. Each story shared and family who is supported will help build a stronger community and eliminate barriers about this subject.

We operate under Sierra Baptist Church of Visalia, a 501(c)(3). All donations are tax deductible.

  • Books on grieving for the parents and any other children they have
  • Jewelry or key chain
  • Meal gift card or jar meal
  • Snacks
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cocoa
  • Journal
  • Tissue
  • Handwritten note
  • Information about other resources
We believe…

God is the uncreated Creator and Sustainer of all things. (Gen. 1:1; 1 Cor. 8:6; Col. 1:16)

Man is in need of rescue and unable to live up to the standard by which God will judge us. (Eph. 2:1-5; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:8)

Jesus is God’s great and only Rescue plan for human kind. God came as a man, namely Jesus, and faced the same struggles we do, but without doing wrong. Jesus was God’s Son, both fully God and fully man. (Rom. 3:24-26; Rom. 5:9; Rom. 5:15-17; Heb. 2:17-18; John 3:16-17)

The Cross is the place where Jesus died on our behalf to pay the debt of our wrongdoings. Anyone is able to receive this pardon from our guilt of wrongdoing through trust in Jesus and living one’s life for Him. (Isaiah 53:6; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15; Heb. 9:28; 1 Peter 2:24)

Jesus’ resurrection is what He did to show He is God and He conquered death. It also proves He has the ability to give us pardon for our wrongdoing and the power in our own lives for godly living. (1 Peter 1:3; Eph. 2:5-6; Rom. 4:25; Rom. 6:14; Col. 3:1)

The Holy Spirit is God and works in us when we choose to follow Christ. He is a Helper who empowers us in our process of living for God and Comforts us in our difficulties. (Acts 1:8; Acts 9:31; Rom. 8:4-5; 1 Cor. 12:4-7, 11; Gal. 5:16; Gal. 5:22-24; Eph. 2:8)

Babies and young children enter the loving presence of God at death since they have not developed the moral faculties to be held accountable to God’s moral standards. (Based on a circumstantial case, such as David’s response to losing his child in 2 Sam. 12:21-23; Ps. 22:10)

Although God is the Great Healer, mourning is a natural and important process of His creation when dealing with suffering and loss. (Job, Matt. 5:4; 2 Cor. 1:4-7; 2 Cor. 7:6-7)
