Angel of Hope


…is a rare gift that, if we are lucky, comes to us with the power to heal our lives. I’ve come to know that the deepest sense of hope often springs from the hardest lessons in life. It is in the darkest skies that stars are best seen…perhaps it is divine irony that within the darkest moments we are capable of revealing the greatest light, demonstration what is best with humanity.

– Richard Paul Evans

Honoring and Remembering Children who Have Passed

The Angel of Hope Memorial Park (Christmas Box Angel Monument) is located at Adam’s Park (Grotto) in Fergus Falls and is part of an international network of memorial parks that provide a place of comfort and hope to parents and family members who grieve the loss of a child. There are over one hundred such parks in existence. The initial memorial statue and subsequent memorial parks were inspired by the book “The Christmas Box” by author Richard Paul Evans.
