the LOST ones


To mark a special occasion or to commemorate a special person? Why not "adopt" a star?

Stars selected are visible from New Zealand and an official star catalogue name and/or number is cross-referenced on the presentation certificate you receive. The star selected and recorded on your certificate is unique to you. We allocate one certificate only to each star.

Your Adopt-a-Star pack contains:

  • A presentation certificate (suitable for framing) dedicating the selected
    star to a nominated person or event.
  • A star chart showing where to find the star in the night sky.
  • Background information on the star's constellation.

Perhaps one of the worst things for any parent to go through is that of stillbirth or neonatal death. No one expects to go through a pregnancy with the hopes and dreams that one has, and then to suffer the loss of a child that you have only just begun to know and love. It is a sad and frightening idea, but rest assured you are not alone.

We are so sorry you or someone close to you has lost a baby through miscarriage. We are a team of volunteers of various ages who have all experienced the loss of our own babies and would like to provide emotional support and information for women and their families during and after miscarriage and subsequent pregnancies.
