Grief Retreat Center Project

Toby’s Story & Our Mission

The Little Fox was created in memory of Tobias “Toby” Graham Stern, who passed away on August 24, 2016, from SIDS. His parents, Katie & Dan Stern, created a 501(c)3 non-profit in his memory. The mission of The Little Fox is to support families grieving the loss of an infant, educate on Safe Sleep Practices, and promote SIDS awareness to families across the United States.

Our organization believes that there is enormous room for growth, when it comes to supporting families who are grieving the death of an infant. The goal of The Little Fox is to ensure that every grieving family is provided the resources and a safe haven to grieve and heal after the death of their baby.

Every grieving family should have resources that support their grieving process and provide various ways to heal, at any stage of their loss journey. This includes parents, siblings, grandparents, extended family, and friends.

The Dawley's Testimonial

The Dawley's

"After losing our son Landon to SIDS - I was absolutely terrified to bring another baby home. We were lucky enough to be chosen as a recipient of an Owlet Monitor through the Little Fox Foundation. Having the Owlet Monitor that first year with our second baby was the only thing that got me through most days. It was the one thing that helped calm my anxiety about sleeping and gave me peace of mind every single night. To say we are grateful for the Little Fox Foundation is an understatement. I could never say thank you enough."

The McAndrew's Testimonial

Thanks to the Little Fox Foundation, my husband and I are able to sleep more soundly at night knowing that our two daughters are being monitored by the owlet. After the loss of our one daughter, and our other two spending almost nine months in the hospital, our two former 24 week preemies were able to come home from the hospital. Our hearts soared with joy and worry at the same time. My husband, who lost a nephew at 6 months from SIDS, was extremely stressed about leaving the comforts of the hospital. However, thanks to the Little Fox Foundation, my husband and I are able to keep a close eye on our daughters heart rates and oxygen saturation. We were so use to the hospital and the constant monitoring of our daughters that the Owlets gave us a sense of reassurance and comfort in knowing that our daughters were safe under our roof."

With deepest appreciation, the McAndrew family.

The Gray's Testimonial

"My name is Rita Gray I just would like to share a little about how The Little Fox Toby’s Foundation has helped give my family peace of mind! My baby boy, Noah Dale Gray, was born October 7, 2021. He is my Rainbow baby. My last child I’ll ever get to see grow into an amazing young man! What this foundation has done is go above and beyond my expectations. I reached out to the Little Fox Foundation. They didn’t hesitate to send me an Owlet. Noah was in the NICU for 11 days because of meds that I had to take while I was pregnant.  Having the Owlet has helped give me some peace of mind and just security that if his heart rate drops or anything that the alarm will sound and wake us up if needed. Thank you so Little Fox Foundation for everything you do!"

The Scouten's Testimonial

"We were one of the lucky families that received an Owlet monitor sock from Toby's Foundation in December of 2020. With our newborn, finding time to sleep, instead of worrying, was really difficult for my husband and I. After we received our Owlet sock it helped so much with our peace of mind and anxiety.
On March 17th 2021, we carried out our usual bedtime routine and settled into sleep. Around 3:34am our daughter's Owlet sock alarmed and woke both my husband and I up. When we checked on our daughter she had a raging fever and was very sick causing some of her vitals to drop/sky rocket. Without the Owlet sock and base, I'm not sure what the outcome would have been. For this I am so thankful for not only the Owlet but also the amazing foundation that had gifted it to our family. So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts."
