Immaculate Hope Ministries was founded in 2011 by Nathan and RyAnne Carr after their son, Caleb Benedict, was stillborn at 38 weeks. The vision of Immaculate Hope Ministries is to bring healing and restoration for parents grieving the death of a child or children from miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant death. Grief is unique to the person grieving and can be very complex and confusing, but at the heart of a parent’s anguish is death. Ultimately, there is only one solution for death – Jesus Christ. Our hope is to be an accompanying presence and guide for grieving parents and to help facilitate an encounter with the Risen Christ!
Our personal story and journey of grief is documented through our blog Good Grief!
