Transforming tragedy into hope... one star at a time.

“ It was truly a labor of love making the stars with my little boy… it was the best way I could explain any part of that tragedy to him. I just told him that I don’t know why bad things happen and sometimes you just have be the good you want to see in this crazy world.” – Faith L, Gilbert, AZ
