A Little Thunder is an organization established by Pam and Ryan Bryson in memory of their son, Isaac Thor, born still at 20 weeks 5 days on March 4, 2011. Even though his sweet little spirit was only here on earth for a short 20 weeks, it is our hope that A Little Thunder will allow his memory and life to live on for many years to come. We look forward to the day when we will see him again and truly know the BIG impact his short life had on the world.
We provide Comfort Boxes to families who experience a loss either before, during or shortly after birth. We currently donate boxes to The University of Kansas Hospital (KUMED), where Isaac was born. We also provide to a few rural hospitals in Missouri and are always expanding/seeking other opportunities to provide these sweet gifts. We also offer them through the mail to those who request and donate to our organization. We hope you will consider donating to help us out!
Our 501(c)3 status is pending. We are excited for the prospects it brings to carry this status. Stay tuned for an announcement when it is final! Very soon…
Why did you start A Little Thunder? Leaving the hospital with empty arms after the birth of a child is so painful. There is an ache that only a mom who has experienced this can even remotely comprehend. Pam’s arms still sometimes ache when she thinks about holding her sweet Isaac.
Losing a child to miscarriage, stillbirth, or early infant loss is a tragic and shocking life-changing experience. A family’s world has just been turned upside down. Having experienced both multiple miscarriages and stillbirth, we felt a great need to offer some kind of comfort to the families (moms and dads) who leave the hospital with empty arms. Our Comfort Boxes will provide some very basic comforts to fill the empty aching arms.
