No one should ever have to walk their grief journey alone. We are here to acknowledge, listen, and help.
Resources are essential to finding hope and healing amidst losing a baby. It is our priority to provide help that is needed.
Educating our community is essential to understanding and acknowledging the loss of an infant. We strive to draw attention to the importance of our mission.
After attending college at ASU, we are proud to call Jonesboro our home. We are thrilled to raise our son, Merritt and our daughter, Molleigh in this community. We were blessed with owning a business in town for 13 years, worked in the healthcare industry at a local hospital, and have met lots of people through real estate. We wear many hats but our favorite is being biological parents, foster parents, and adoptive parents. The part of parenting that has been the hardest was becoming bereaved parents. This is when we decided to make an “Mpact” on grief. After losing our infant daughter, followed by a hysterectomy in 2014, it has become our mission to help other grieving families, who are faced with similar unimaginable loss.
FUN FACTS ABOUT THE LOGO
The M in “Mpact” comes from Marleigh, infant daughter of the Propst family.
The M design comes from the Memphis bridge, where Rebecca is originally from.
When turning the M sideways it represents a pregnant mother.
It is half of a butterfly that signifies Marleigh.
The green line represents the road of grief. Getting from one side to the other with help.
The purple color comes from the official color of the year for 2014. The year Marleigh passed.
The name Marleigh has a definition meaning of “marshy meadow” which is the green color.
