PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

A program to help families remember ones they have lost is now at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center. 

According to a media release, Tim and Whitney Dickinson are working with an organization, "Mamie's Poppy Plates." The plan calls for the donation of remembrance plates to families who have lost children, infants or experience stillbirth.

"Mamie's Poppy Plates" was created in 2011 by a Little Rock woman, Sarah Bussey Adams. Adams lost her daughter 37 and a half weeks into her pregnancy. Adams created the program and came up with a plan to give parents who have lost a child a plate with their child's footprints.

Officials said the Dickinson's decided to help the program after a friend's child was stillborn.
