Angel of Hope
On October 4, 2008, Springfield’s Angel of Hope statue was dedicated in
Washington Park’s Botanical Garden.  A memorial to children who have died, the
Springfield statue is one of about 100 nationwide based on a 1993 book entitled
The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans. The Springfield Angel of Hope was a
project of parents who met at the Springfield
Share chapter’s annual Walk to
Remember in the fall of 2007. Family members placed white carnations on the 4
foot high statue during the dedicatory ceremony.
