Welcome to Granting Hope!

It is with heavy hearts that we welcome you to our ministry. We exist because we too have lost a child and wish to comfort those who know this pain. You can read our story and learn more about what we do as you navigate through the tabs below.

Happy Birthday, Bryston Ray!

I really hate it when people don't remember the anniversaries. Worse than that, I hate it when people do remember it, but don't do anything to acknowledge it.  Because I know how much it hurts when folks don't acknowledge, I have made the vow not to do the same.  That being said, today is the year marker for a very special little angel, born July 24, 2009 to Jennifer & Ty Davison. You can read their story on her  blog.  Jennifer had a very special request- that folks would buy little Bryston a balloon, put his name on it, and send it up to Heaven.  I'm sure if you want to, it's not too late to do it. Here are a couple pics of ours...we sent one to Grant too. Happy Birthday, Bryston! We love you, and your mommy and daddy!

Remembering the little boy who started it all

Today, as we remember Grant on his 23 month "birthday" in Heaven, we are thankful for his short life and the moments we got to spend with him. We are also grateful for the beautiful families we have met on our journey and the wonderful friendships we have made. We hope that Granting Hope has been a blessing to you all. We too, have been blessed by you.

Thanks for the beautiful artwork, Carly.
