NICU Graduate Program

Sometimes sad stories have happy endings, and we believe happy endings should always be celebrated! 


That’s why we are so excited to announce the expansion of the Emma & Evan Foundation’s services to include the newly designed NICU Graduates program, which has been made possible by all of your generous support. 


NICU Graduates will provide graduation gowns, caps, and hand-crafted afghans or quilts – completely free of charge – to families and their new additions that are leaving the NICU with stories of success. 


All NICU graduates will receive:

  • A preemie-sized graduation gown in white or ivory

  • A matching graduation cap

  • A matching afghan or a quilt

   .......all made from a donated wedding dress


NICU graduation pieces will be lovingly hand-crafted by our team of volunteer seamstresses using materials sourced from donated wedding dresses. 


We hope that these infant-sized graduation gowns, caps, and keepsake baby quilts help families mark the joyous homecoming occasion while celebrating their new baby’s new life. 


While we continue to focus on supporting families who are grieving the loss of an infant with Angel Gowns and memory boxes, each day at the Emma & Evan Foundation, we also look for new ways to strengthen our cause while bringing dignity to sorrow and honoring the blessings and joys of family. 


If you'd like to have NICU graduation sets in your local hospital, please reach out to us via email at  We'll respond with a letter to share with your local facility introducing our organization and how we can help them.  


It’s with this reverence for family, that we hope you will join us and the families graduating from the NICU in gratitude and joy by offering your continued support of our ever-growing mission and our newly launched NICU Graduates program.
