One memory, one snuggle & one celebration at a time!
An estimated 15 million babies are born too early every year. That is more than 1 in 10 babies. Well, I was one of those babies. I came into this world a fighter. I was born at 26 weeks and weighed 1 lb and 7 oz and I was the size of a dollar bill. There were a lot of setbacks and times when my future looked non-existent. But eventually, through faith and prayer of family and friends and a wonderful team of doctors and nurses, I was able to pull through.
Skip ahead to 2008, 23 years later. My husband and I were graduating with our bachelor’s degrees and we really wanted our daughter to celebrate with us. I looked and looked and could not find a cap and gown small enough to fit my precious 3-month-old. That is when I decided to make my own. I was able to walk across the stage and receive my diploma holding my little girl, all dolled up in her very own cap and gown. At the same time I also created our signature Luvi Blanket for my daughter for Christmas. It was her favorite stuffed animal and blanket rolled into one. With that...in April of 2009, Kinder Keepsakes was born.
For the next few years it was more of a fun hobby. But then in 2013, Jennifer Smith joined the business. Her contribution to the business really helped it grow and expand in ways I have never imagined. Jenn has since taken a step back from the business, but I will be forever grateful for her hard work and dedication that has allowed Kinder Keepsakes to flourish.
We focus on three things in our business: memories, snuggles and celebration. It is our mission to make sure that our products reflect our brand and what we stand for. Our Baby Graduation Caps and Gowns have expanded to include preemie sizes for babies in the NICU; to make that milestone of when your baby “graduates” all that more special. We have also created “Project: NICU GRAD” to help give back to our community. Something unique about our Luvi Blankets is they now include a very special birth certificate that allows the child to personalize their Luvi to fit them.
I believe in our brand, our mission and what we are and will become. Every day I look forward to bringing smiles and joy to children everywhere. One memory, one snuggle and one celebration at a time.
