We are excited to have the opportunity to work with BareHands Décor during our Forever in My Heart event benefiting the Western New York Perinatal Bereavement Network, Inc.
BareHands Décor is a husband and wife team who enjoy making wooden and rustic home décor. All items are hand painted and each piece is uniquely made.
BareHands Décor Story:
“A dream of ours has suddenly become a fierce reality in our already busy lives as parents and adventurers. We started BareHands Décor after making our own home décor and customized gifts for friends and family. We quickly realized how much we love creating something out of an old (or new) beat up piece of wood. Woodworking and painting is therapy for us. Many of our items are customized requests, home and holiday décor, and inspirational & memorial pieces”

Miscarriage and Infant loss is a cause that is close to Justin & Amy Bowser. Please take a moment to read the families story of loss, grief, love, strength and faith in Amy's own words.
“Once would have been enough, and it was more than I could bare, but grief showed up on my doorstep two more times after my first loss. In the last 7 years I have lost four children; four boys who were extraordinarily perfect when they were born. It was me who was flawed. My body had failed me and my ability to do what women were put on this earth to do. My feelings of failure were combined with the pain of delivering each of my children and holding their tiny bodies wondering all that could have been; what should have been. Looking back I really don’t know how I came out of that. To be honest, the hole in my heart is still there, I have just found ways to build life around that hole. I don’t think grief ever really leaves us. I have accepted grief as a part of my life because it tells their story and serves as a reminder to love better and live fuller; to be more present and to continually search this earth for signs of them.
Running became an outlet for me. I ran my first half marathon last September and I am currently training for another one this September. There is something about hitting that pavement and letting my thoughts run wild with my body. For me, it’s not about the race. Crossing that finish line is a measure of my strength and ability to do all hard things. It’s a reminder that their legacy lives because I run for each of them, Brody, Kade, my sweet twin baby boys and my dear angel here on earth – my miracle girl”
