Every fall, Atrium Health Levine Children's honors the babies who pass away in our neonatal intensive care nursery. This is an opportunity to remember and honor your baby’s short, but meaningful life. Join us virtually this year as we celebrate the wonderful children who have touched our lives

We partner with our parents and community members to make this event possible. The memorial service offers comfort to parents and staff, as together, we hear from other parents with a similar experience. As families and staff share stories, read poems, dedicate a brick at Our Children’s Memorial Walkway, and release a butterfly for each child, we honor and remember each precious life.
