Impressions of the Heart with Advocate Condell Medical Center ~ Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Your baby leaves a lasting imprint on your heart.

But they don’t stay babies for very long.

That’s why we have partnered with Advocate Condell Medical Center and our friends at Artist @ Heart to bring you a creative gift workshop just in time for Mother’s Day.  We’ll help you capture the memory of those tiny hands and feet while they are still tiny.

  1. I no longer have an infant, she is now 19 months old, would this be good for her? I just purchased a ticket for 10am but now I am thinking it may be too young. Thoughts?
