"[Mom] has invented a method of making her family feel loved, cherished and important for years to come. Ten years of such has changed my heart and my life, and I know it's something I can count on to make each birthday unique and special in its own way. It's something I get excited about and look forward to as my special day approaches."
~Sarah Herring, Poet, Writer, Mom
"I am so appreciative to Dawn Herring for creating such an amazing book that helps parents celebrate their children. I am so grateful that it had such a positive impact on my son when nothing else seemed to work. He needed me to SHOW him that I loved him because words were not enough."
"I love Dawn’s Birthday Wall, where you can create a collage for your children which is a way they can start to build their life story. Treasures like these become more than special keepsakes. They tell a story which will bring back lost memories later."
