NEWTON COUNTY — October 2018 - Hometown Hero:
A Newton County family has managed to turn heartbreak into hope through an outreach group called HopePrints Ministries.
The people of First Baptist Church in Newton are proud to call this Daisy Thiebaud one of their own.
So proud that they nominated her to be recognized as a Southeast Texas Hometown Hero.
Thiebaud is the woman behind HopePrints Ministries, which she started after losing her 5-year-old son.
Through the ministry, Thiebaud has made hundreds of little hand prints to give to other grieving families.
And, it's not just parents and siblings she's trying to help, Thiebaud's ministry also reaches out to other churches.
Whether it's with a hand print on Christmas ornament or a footprint in a frame, Thiebaud and other volunteers are trying to touch each and every family who has lost a child to let them know that they're not alone.
