Wessman Story

The Micah Wessman Foundation was created by Cory and Heather Wessman in 2009 following the sudden death of their oldest son, Micah Wessman. Micah's story can be found here.

Hope for the Mourning provides Biblical support and encouragement to parents grieving the death of an infant or young child, regardless of the religious background of the parents.

The ministry provides, at no cost to the grieving parents, a care package which includes various items for the benefit of the grieving parents. A care package typically includes restaurant gift cards, information on Christian grief counseling, and books providing Biblical promises of hope and encouragement through the darkest days of grief.

For those parents who wish to receive additional assistance after receiving the care package, Hope for the Mourning also provides means for grieving parents to receive the encouragement of meeting with other grieving parents.

If you would like more information about us or our ministry, to receive our assistance in ministering to grieving parents, or have questions or comments about any of the content on this site, please send us an email or write us at
