The Christmas Box Angel Statue was introduced to the world in the book The Christmas Box, a worldwide bestseller and hit television movie by author Richard Paul Evans. In the book, a woman mourns the loss of her child at the base of an angel monument. Though the story is mostly fiction, the angel monument once existed but is speculated to have been destroyed. The new angel statue was commissioned by Richard Paul Evans, in response to reports that grieving parents were seeking out the angel as a place to grieve and heal. The monument was dedicated on December 6, 1994-corresponding with the date of the child's death in The Christmas Box (Coincidentally, Dec. 6th is celebrated in many parts of the world as Children's Day).   Annual candlelight vigils occur at 7:00 p.m. on December 6th.

Currently Houston, Bedford, and San Antonio are the only cities in Texas to have an angel statue.  San Antonio's is the 67th Angel of Hope statue throughout the world, and was dedicated on September 19, 2006.
