Footprints of the Future

Footprints of the Future, an AVH Foundation program, offers parents, grandparents, extended family and friends a unique way to commemorate the birth of a precious baby and, at the same time, support AVH. The arrival of a baby is a time of great joy and pride, with family eager to share the news.

For $200, the baby's actual footprint is deeply etched in satin silver medallions, along with the baby's name and birth date. One medallion is permanently adhered to the Footprints of the Future wall, located in the AVH Women and Infants Pavilion across from the Newborn Nursery. The other beautifully crafted 3-1/8" diameter medallion is kept by the family and includes an easel for displaying in the home or office. The family medallion can also be an etched-glass ornament to be used as a sun-catcher or for holiday decorating. For additional family members (e.g., grandparents) that wish to have a Footprint medallion, glass-etched or satin silver duplicates can be obtained for $45 each.

For further information on the Footprints of the Future Program, call the Family Resource Center at the Women and Infants Pavilion at (661) 726-6210.
