Tiles celebrate the miracle of life, show appreciation to Ascension St. Vincent’s nurses, physicians, and staff, and provide critical financial support for our Women and Children’s Center.

You may also honor big brothers and sisters born at Ascension St. Vincent’s. Additional tiles may be purchased to recognize the birth of older children. It’s a wonderful way to pay a lasting tribute to the children in your life! Each personalized tile includes the baby’s name and date of birth. Walls are prominently displayed on the second and third floors of the Women and Children’s Center.

The Small Wonders Wall also serves to remember a cherished life that did not live to full term or died shortly after birth. Thus, the Wall honors all life and recognizes their presence, though frail and all too brief. Each Memorial Tile is adorned with an angel and includes the infant’s name or “Baby” and the family’s last name. The date of the loss or death is also included.

Please call 205-558-3850 for more information. Thank you for your tax-deductible gift that supports our Women and Children’s Center.
