Welcome to the Sweet Pea Project
a volunteer run, federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
The Sweet Pea Project was created by Stephanie Cole after the death of her daughter Madeline, as a way to honor her memory and reach out to other bereaved parents.
The Sweet Pea Project offers comfort, support and gentle guidance to families who have experienced the death of a baby. Sweet Pea Project Blankets have been donated to hospitals across the country and a new Book Donation Project was launched in June 2010 after the release of Stephanie's book, Still.
Wander through the various pages of this website and you will find a large library of resources including links to websites, support groups and books that other parents have found helpful. On the Sweet Pea Babies page you will find a special place to remember our children. There is also an online gallery that features artwork and writings from all over the world, created by the parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles of the little ones who are so deeply loved and missed.
If you or someone you love has experienced the death of a baby, please visit our For Bereaved Families page.
