Sue, I got the bracelet. I love love love it. I am not a jewelry person, but I will wear jewelry if it means something to me. My wedding ring and now this bracelet. It turned out soooooooo great. I love how light it is also. Thank you for taking the time to make it special. Every time I take it off I put it back into the box and into the satchel. I just wanted you to know how much I love it. I can't wait to let my mom and sister see it. I have done a blog since I lost my baby and I put your link on it. Thank you so much for everything.
When I lost Garrett at 15 weeks, I was heartbroken. I immediately wanted to hold on to every last thing that I could of him and I wanted to find peace and heal. I only had one ultrasound picture of a tiny spot and his tiny footprints. I'm only a jewelry wearer when it means something to me. When I got on My Forever Child's website and noticed that they had a bracelet that I could have his actual feet engraved on, my eyes filled with tears. I get to see my little 2 1/2 girl every day and she brings me so much joy. Now, I can look at my wrist and be reminded of the tiny feet that I got to see, and be in amazement of how wonderful God is that this tiny baby has such perfect hands and feet. This is healing to me, because I smile now when I look at them. I requested to have Garrett's feet in the exact size they were on my bracelet and Sue was so sweet to correspond with me via email and get the exact measurements so she could make them true to size. I can actually point to those little feet when people ask me about my baby in Heaven and tell them that those were his actual prints in the actual size. Garrett is in Heaven and that is every parents wish for their children someday.....but I have a little piece of him with me here on earth to remind me of the lessons his life and death has taught me

I absolutely want others to know how pleased I am! Please feel free to use my baby's footprints on your info page. The engraving turned out so perfect! I can not wait to show the pendant to my support group on Thursday! Friday, March 19 was her expected due date.
I lost Anaya at 16 weeks gestation. I felt the little butterfly-like flutter feeling of her October 1, the first and only time. I learned her heart stopped beating October 5 at my 16 1/2 week check up. She was so tiny as you can see by her footprints. Only 5 inches. I had the labor induced October 6. I later learned she had amniotic band syndrome and Trisomy 13, which is very fatal. She was perfect to me, of course.
Thank you so much again for helping me through my grief!
P.S. I wanted to let you know that with the past two times I have gone to my pregnancy loss support group since receiving my pendant of baby Anaya's footprints, it has been so very admired. I love wearing it! It means a lot to me that you wanted to post her footprints and pendant on the web page. It makes me so proud. I love showing her actual prints close to the pendant. People are amazed with your work! I still am amazed too!
Thank you so much for the beautiful custom print pendants you made for my husband and I in honor of our sweet daughter in Heaven! We absolutely love how they turned out! It is so heart warming to know we are able to wear a part of her close to our hearts every day. I am so thankful I came across your website and couldn't be happier with your professionalism and timely customer service!
I absolutely love the silver custom footprint pendant I received last fall. It is so beautiful, and a remembrance I can have with me all the time. I lost my baby girl at 36 weeks. She was almost exactly four weeks from her due date. No explanation for her death.....just such a tragedy for me and my whole family. Anyway, what you do is so special, and I'm so glad I came across your site when I needed it the most. :-) I actually had found it while in the hospital, and thankfully the nurses helped me take her hand prints as well as her footprints. My necklace is a priceless treasure for me.
Thank you for all your efforts into making this. Only a mother would know how important the footprints are. Someone else might have just gone ahead and make the pendant without trying to darken the prints in the way you did. I really appreciate what you have done.
Thank you again for the lovely jewelry you've made for me. I'll keep a lookout for any new items on your website as I'm thinking of getting something for my husband for either his birthday or X'mas. You make such wonderful things with your hands :)

Thank you so much for creating this special piece of jewelry for me. I put it on right away. My custom engraved pendant will be cherished forever.
I received the custom engraved dog tags. They look AMAZING! Thank you so much, what a wonderful job you did. The details and quality are of the highest standards. Thank you,
I have received my custom footprint necklace and it's perfect. Thank you! I can now have a piece of her with me everyday. Sincerely,
Sue, I just got home, and my custom footprint charm was in my mailbox. I cannot believe how beautiful it is! It is even more beautiful than I imagined. The timing is perfect...my due date would have been this Thursday, and tomorrow we are having a family dinner to "remember" my little boy. I cried when I opened the package. It's perfect. Thank you so much.
This charm with my angel's footprints means so much to me. I wear it everyday and give it a kiss when I take it off at night. It helped me make it thru the past year. It was even in my belly pictures that I had taken when I was pregnant with my daughter. I know my angel is watching over her and being her guardian angel. Thank you for these beautiful necklaces. It made all the difference when I lost my son- Having his footprints that close was very important in the healing process. Still to this day I cry when I see them but now they are happy tears. It is because of my angel Ryan that his little sister arrived safe and sound. Thank you so very much for the amazing work you do. You cant imagine how much this one piece of jewelry means to me.
I just wanted to thank you for the pieces you made for us, and express to you how much they mean to us. I know your jewelry is made primarily for lost babies, but as soon as I heard of your company I knew I had to have a handprint necklace made of my daddy’s hand. My dad was very healthy, but fell off a ladder and died last November at the age of 58. We were very fortunate that the funeral home did his handprint for us, and we ordered necklaces for my mom, two sisters and myself. I wear it everyday, and now can hold his hand whenever I want. I love my necklace, thank you so much. Actually a friend told me she had her grandmothers fingerprint made onto a necklace – while trying to find companies online, all would ONLY do fingerprints, and said an adult size hand was too large to shrink down, they all only did baby jewelry. So I found you online and you were the company that said yes, you could to the whole hand! I wanted to hold my dad’s hand, not his finger :)
The custom footprint pendants came in the mail on Thursday. They were beautiful. I gave them to my husband on Friday and he cried...actually we both did. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job. They were exactly what I wanted. Have a wonderful day.
Thank you for the wonderful job you have done. Today is only the 6 week anniversary of the birth and death of my son Hamish. Receiving these pendants brought tears of both joy and sadness. The joy of being able to have this experience of Hamish and having this keepsake to hold close, and the sadness of losing my precious son. Many thanks,
I just received the custom engraved footprint dog tag keychain and it is SO beautiful. I just wanted to send you a quick note to say THANK YOU. Thank you for this very special jewelry that you make to honor our babies. I was so touched when I opened the package and I know that my husband is going to cherish this forever. Your work is amazing. Kindly,
I received the custom footprint charm today and I am absolutely delighted. Not only did this come way sooner that I expected but I was amazed at your exquisite workmanship. I know this will be a comfort for my daughter-in-law to look at her daughter's tiny footprint every day. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world.
Susan, my husband and I received our pendant and dog tag yesterday. They are absolutely beautiful, beyond what we imagined. We miss our son so much and to have the ability to carry a part of him with us everyday is priceless. What an incredibly selfless person you are to have such a talent and use it to help others deal with their pain even though it means remembering your loss every day. We are so grateful and look forward to ordering from you in the future. I will give your postcards to my sister-in-law who is a labor and delivery nurse and my husband and I both put pictures of our pendants on Facebook for others to see. Thanks again,
I had done a lot of shopping around before I ordered the custom hand and footprint pendants for myself and my girlfriend. When I compared cost and quality to the others out there, your company far surpassed the others. I passed your name on to a friend of mine who owns a jewelry store and does not want to take on this service, but often gets questions. This jeweler had referred me to a local funeral parlor, but they had gone through Thumbies. I had them check out your website and they said they were going to go through you from now on and will spread the word..... see.... it is true what I learned when I went to "Fred Pryor's Excellent Customer Service" Class...that positive word of mouth that you receive from superior customer service can lead to your best advertising.... it spreads like wildfire and it is free!! ha ha !! I will always tell people about you!!! I am ordering the bracelet today for my daughter in law... it still breaks my heart that the only thing she has for 8 1/2 months of pregnancy is a blanket, these prints and photos of their beautiful son, already passed to an angel. It helped me to have his prints with me, and it helped my best friend to have her son with her... I pray it comforts my daughter in law too.Thank you for so lovingly caring for my grandson's prints.
Sue, you have done it again.... You have surpassed my expectations!!! I want to thank you again for the beautiful job you did on my sons's dog tag. He wears it with love and pride!! He absolutely loved it and is thrilled to have a part of his first child so close to his heart. I cannot thank you enough! It was such a pleasure to give my daughter in law her bracelet but I must be honest I wanted something really special for MY son! Something that really said "I Understand and I love you forever!" And this does it! I love it! I made sure to tell both of them all about you and how amazing you have been! Thank you again

Sue, I just want to thank you again for the beautiful charm bracelet you created for me. Your work is absolutely amazing. I appreciate your patience and willingness to work with me to create exactly what I wanted. All the "extras" you put into making my charm bracelet perfect are much appreciated. You have brought much comfort during a difficult time in my life, I am forever grateful for your services. God's Blessings to you,
Hi Sue, I just had to send you a quick message in regards to my two daughter’s footprint charms. I am so pleased with the final result, it was beyond my expectations.
We had the charms placed on a Pandora bracelet and gave them to my daughter’s the night of the graduation, along with the Footprints in the Sand poem. They both were in awe and to this day keep telling me how much they love, not only the bracelet, but the entire concept of it. They have been showing it off to everyone because they are so proud of it.
I sincerely appreciate your help & patience with me deciding on which foot & charm to use. You were very warm & caring and it was not at all about the sale, which is so refreshing to me. You even added an extra touch by putting a little note in the box delivered. To me, that is just so personal and adds that extra touch of caring.
I was at the Pandora store yesterday to have them put on the Pandora bracelet & another lady was next to me & loved the charms. She asked for your website & said she was going to get on it when she got home because she wants one for her 2 children.
I will definitely recommend you to anyone & everyone and I still have children going to college so I am sure I will be contacting you in the future. Thanks Again,
Thank you so much for creating this beautiful bracelet to honor my angel, Evelyn Grace. You went above and beyond my expectations with her footprints. I know that the image you had to work with wasn't the greatest. I feel that I have a piece of Evie with me.Thank you again for working with me to create this bracelet. It is definitely going to be treasured.
I just had to write and thank you for the beautiful pendants you made for us. I really appreciate how their hand and foot prints really stand out. We will always wear them. Thank you so much!
Dear Susan, Thank you so much for the very special charm I ordered in remembrance of our stillborn son Kito. I received it a week ago, after tracking its progress daily across the atlantic to the UK!As I'm sure you understand the last couple of months have been filled with such sadness and disappointment. My husband was worried that I was looking forward to receiving my imprint charm so much that I could only be disappointed. So I just had to write to you and say how incredibly beautiful it is and how much I appreciate the lengths you went to, to make it exactly what I wanted. As soon as I put it on I felt a sense of peace. Thank you,
All of our personalized and engraved jewelry is crafted right in our own studio by a skilled engraving professional. Each piece is individually configured to ensure that your specific inscription is produced in the best way possible.
Please take note of the number of allowable characters (which includes spaces and punctuation) that can be engraved listed in the product description. In some cases we can compress the letters if the wording is a couple of characters over the specified limit.
Please use the Special Instructions text box on the product detail page when ordering if you have a specific request for the engraving layout. You can also contact us before placing your order to confirm if we are able to accommodate your special request.
We reserve the right to change the font and the layout from your order form for the best possible fit and aesthetics on the piece.
Engraving Fonts Available:
Machine Engraved Block font in all capital letters. On larger pieces, it will be a filled double line block (first picture). On smaller pieces, it will be a single line block (second picture). The first letter in the word will be larger than the rest of the letters in the word (second picture), unless you type your personalization request in all capital letters (first picture).
Machine Engraved Single Line Cursive font in capital and lower case letters.
Machine Engraved Filled Roman font in capital and lower case letters.
Machine Engraved Single Line Script font in capital and lower case letters.
Hand Stamped lettering in all capital letters, for a handcrafted artisan look. This style is only available on select items. Please note that the hand stamped lettering is not intended to look "perfect". Variations in letter placement, spacing, and depth of the letters are to be expected. This engraving is done with small steel alphabet tools and are hammered deeply into the silver, which is atop a steel block. The opposite side of the piece may have marr marks from the engraving process. Extra polishing is done to reduce the visibility of the marks.
Monograms are the classic way to personalize items. The initial of the first name is on the left, the initial of the last name is in the center in a larger size, and initial of the middle name is on the right. If you are doing a monogram of married couple, the initial of the husband's first name is on the left, the initial of the couple's last name is in the center in a larger size, and the initial of the wife's first name is on the right. We offer four beautiful Monogram styles: Interlocking Script, Roman, Circle Block, and Fancy Script.
We have several Monogram jewelry pieces. However If you wish to have a monogram on a jewelry piece that does not have the Monogram option (ex. on the back of a custom handprint-footprint pendant), you can either add on a Monogram engraving or contact us with your request prior to placing your order. Monograms take up a large area of space on the piece, and may not be available on all our items.
~If you would like a HEART shaped icon, please use a pound symbol # in the engraving field, example: Always In My #
~If you would like a STAR shaped icon, please use an asterisk symbol * in the engraving field, example: My Little *
~Please note that the star and heart symbols will take up 2 character spaces when they are engraved. Please allow for this when entering your desired inscription as you place your order.
~We can engrave in other languages!
Please input the exact way the engraving should read in your online order and also in a separate email to confirm your special personalization.
*There is a $10 labor charge per item for engraving in these languages, we will email you an invoice for payment of this additional charge after your order is placed.
*These languages are only available on our machine engraved pieces. Not available in Hand Stamped font.

About our Engravables:
Sterling silver is a relatively soft metal which scratches easily during normal wear. Please note that sterling silver WILL scratch if it rubs against other silver charms and chains and also harder materials such as crystals, keys, stone and metal surfaces. This is normal and to be expected.
Sterling silver will take on a patina of it's own, developing numerous small scratches, with normal wear. Each of our engraved pieces is protectively wrapped to avoid damage during shipping.
