Braxton was born sleeping on September 12, 2018.  Although he was born still, he was STILL born.  Braxton is one of approximately 25,000 stillbirths that occur in the US, and 12,000 stillbirths that occur in Benin, each year.  Often times we don't talk about these babies because the topic is taboo in many regions.  Braxton's parents want us to talk- and support each other.

For the month of October you can donate, in the name of Braxton, using the GoFundMe link above.  All donations will be used to provide resources for the children enrolled in our programs in Benin
