Embrace sessions are about embracing the beauty within life's trials. Whether that is a NICU stay for the tiniest warriors, a child's time in hospice care, or a celebration of life for a child gone too soon. Embrace sessions are all about cherishing life as it is at that moment.
"Capes and Crowns didn't give us a boxed experience. They were personal. They got to know my daughter, tailored an experience for her, and even adjusted as the afternoon played out due to her health. Their volunteers built trust with my daughter, made her smile, and created memories our whole family will always hold dear." - Pearcia B.
