THE BUTTERFLY BEREAVEMENT ROOM AT TEXAS CHILDREN’S
My cousin, Aimee Renaudin, was a neonatal ICU nurse at Texas Children’s Hospital. She had the vision to create a bereavement room after she she witnessed numerous families attempt to enjoy the last few minutes of their babies lives while in a large room surrounded by other sick babies and families. The bereavement room now functions as a nursery, where families can spend the last moments with their child in a soothing, private environment.
I was so blessed to be asked to create some wall art for the room. Donations were made in memory of children and their names were written around the wings of the butterflies.
