About Raine Huberty
Raine Madilynne Huberty was born January 27, 2011. She weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces. She was 21 ½ inches
long. Her major organs were all of average weight and size. She resembled her older brother Greyson. Dark, curly
hair covered her head. She had a round face, pudgy cheeks and a dimple in her chin.
She looked peaceful, and perfectly healthy. But she wasn’t. She was stillborn.
One day before Raine was stillborn, her mother went to the hospital with contractions. She was sent home; it was
a “false alarm”. Raine’s heart was beating. Sometime in the next 24 hours, her heart stopped. No one knows why.
What is stillbirth and how does this tragedy happen?
Stillbirth is the death of a baby just prior to or during childbirth and is the leading cause of infant mortality. In
many cases the cause cannot be determined. Women of all ages, socioeconomic classes, ethnicities, and religions
are affected by stillbirth. One in every 150 pregnancies ends in the death of a baby. More than 26,000 babies are
stillborn in the United States each year – 70 babies every day. About 50 percent of stillbirths occur in the third
trimester, affecting what appear to be healthy babies.
Selah House and how YOU can help
All proceeds benefit the MISS Foundation, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting
families who suffer the deaths of their children. Funds will build the Selah House, the first ever carefarm and
respite center for the traumatically bereaved in the world founded by Dr. Joanne Cacciatore, an Associate
Professor at Arizona State University.
The Selah House Carefarm offers a sanctuary for grieving families and also for abused animals that have been
rescued and now live in this sanctuary. Grieving adults and children learn to build relationships with these animals
who also know suffering and that leads to comfort for all. The Selah House Carefarm is a place where grieving
families can go in their traumatic grief to be with nature, breath clean air, care for 23 vulnerable farm animals, get
trauma informed counseling, and just be with their authentic emotions.
Ways you can support the Selah House Carefarm and help make a difference in the lives of those coping with the
loss of a child include sponsorship opportunities and silent auction item donations. Please contact Alyssa
Kapranopoulos at 925-683-1170 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
