Our Services

Twice a week our volunteers at the Texas Children's Hospital take and print pictures of families with their little ones. We help the families create a story card to take home and 'show-off' and also make photo CD's of the pictures we took for their future use.

In the photos you see story cards that were created by our volunteers for families with little ones in the NICU. Story Cards are small booklets consisting of 4 decorated 8" x 8" pages with photos. The story Cards are decorated in our 'scrapping room' with a variety of donated embellishments. Sometimes the volunteers make the Story Cards and sometimes the parents.

For those who already love to scrapbook or for those whose newborn will be in the NICU for an extended time, we have donated supplies on hand for them to begin making their baby’s scrapbook.

FirstMemories also donates albums to families to begin their own baby book for newborns who will stay in the NICU for an extended time.

We take photo's of the little ones the NICU & CVICU. All photos are burned onto CD's which are given to the families.

Another service of our group is to create a simple grieving album for families who lose their little one. We use donated supplies and volunteers to put together these photo albums.

These special albums will then be a home for the baby's photographs, and other items like foot prints, handprints, id bracelets, locks of hair, clipping from a blanket...

It is a way to honor their brief life, help the family’s grieving process and always remember their little one.
