From Krystal and Larry Barnes, Alexandria's Parents:

This year, Empty Arms Bereavement Support is moving to an actual location all our own. We will no longer have to meet in a conference room in the basement of the hospital where most of our babies were born and died. Empty Arms will be able to provide even more support for families with our own space, allowing for more support groups, community events, and a drop in place for families to just go to when they need a little more support. In order to do that Empty Arms needs our support.

Last year, in memory of our own daughter, Alexandria, for her fifth birthday, we wanted to come up with a way to give back to a community that has been a crucial part in our road to healing, and be able to share our daughter’s story with others. Alexandria's Ice Cream Social turned into a successful fundraiser for Empty Arms. This year, we are looking to make Alexandria’s Ice Cream Social even bigger with even more community support.
